JJ's List for Battlefield Birmingham
#1
Hey folks, thought I'd start a thread to develop my list for Battlefield Birmingham on 15th September.

My 1st draft list is:

. Heavy Weapon Team: Autocannon
. Sergeant: Chainsword, Plasma pistol
Infantry Squad [3 PL, 69pts]
. 5x Guardsman

+ Elites +
Callidus Assassin [5 PL, 80pts]
Culexus Assassin [5 PL, 85pts]
Eversor Assassin [4 PL, 70pts]

++ Battalion Detachment +5CP (Imperium - Adeptus Custodes) [75 PL, 1495pts] ++
Open the Vaults (2 Relics)
+ HQ +
Shield-Captain [7 PL, 134pts]: Sentinel Blade, Storm Shield
Shield-Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike [9 PL, 164pts]: Auric Aquilis, Hurricane Bolter, Misericordia
+ Troops +
Custodian Guard Squad [8 PL, 163pts]
. Custodian: Guardian Spear
. Custodian: Guardian Spear
. Custodian: Sentinel Blade, Storm Shield

. Custodian: Sentinel Blade, Storm Shield
Custodian Guard Squad [8 PL, 171pts]
. Custodian: Guardian Spear, Misericordia
. Custodian: Guardian Spear, Misericordia
. Custodian: Sentinel Blade, Storm Shield
+ Elites +
Allarus Custodians [13 PL, 264pts]
. Allarus Custodian: Castellan Axe, Misericordia
. Allarus Custodian: Castellan Axe, Misericordia
. Allarus Custodian: Castellan Axe, Misericordia
Vexillus Praetor in Allarus Terminator Armor [7 PL, 154pts]: Misericordia, Praetorian Plate, Vexilla Imperius
+ Fast Attack +
Vertus Praetors [15 PL, 282pts]
. Vertus Praetor: Hurricane Bolter, Misericordia
. Vertus Praetor: Hurricane Bolter, Misericordia
. Vertus Praetor: Hurricane Bolter, Misericordia
++ Total: [102 PL, 1997pts] ++

This would give me 13 CP to start with, of which I'd immediately spend:
Open the Vaults - 2 relics for 3CP

During deployment I'd spend another 2CP to give my biker captain victor of the blood games (getting the CP back on a 5+ after my IG warlord is down).

There are some good combos involving the vexilla and teleport homers and I'd be looking to put as close to half my force as possible into reserve ~51PL including the assassins (14PL), the terminators (13PL) and all of my Custodian Guards (24PL).

Don't forget that taking Imperial Knights in a Super Heavy Detachment grants more CP now. I think if you have at least 3 titanic units it grants +6 CP as per the FAQ.

No problem. 

I like the concept as it's similar to mine, how do you plan to deal with Knights though. I don't know the Custodes Codex that well but I don't see much anti tank?

Cheers Luke.

In my game against Andy, my shooting had very little effect on the knights, most of the damage I did was in close combat with the Custodes. They have decent number of attacks with medium strength, high AP and multi damage.

Looks good might want to try 2 Culexus and an evisor with one starting on the board so you have some anti smite if you don’t get first turn also the callidus can Be a little disappointing in combat.
