PostSubject: Modrians List   Mon Nov 22, 2010 10:29 am

This is my first stab at a Death Squads squad in a while, aimed at play-testing some scenarios with Kartofelkopf.


-100 Modrians

-55 Captain
-29 Boltgun
-7 Catachan Fang

-42 Lieutenant
-20 Autogun

-42 Lieutenant
-20 Autogun

-36 Sergeant
-13 Autopistol
-14 Catachan Fang

-36 Sergeant
-13 Autopistol

-75 Infantry
-60 Autogun x 3

-50 Infantry
-40 Autogun x 2

-32 Medic
-13 Autopistol

I loved the Firing Lanes rule from before, and was glad to see it was still available. I figured I would have enough points to create a couple of fire teams; clumps of infantry surrounding an officer to activate the ability.

Given that they weren't going to be shooting while ordering the Infantry, I figured I should outfit them with a mind to hand to hand. The infantry can take charges as they align themselves in a crescent to protect the officer, and then the officers can step in to provide some counter-charge.

I gave the Captain and Lieutenants long range weapons so that I could deploy them defensively for opportunity fire while the fire teams advance to secure objectives and torrent S 3 hits.

I like the medic. His cost of 32 + 13 (autopistol) = 45 - the cost of an infantryman with autogun. I usually play with a mind toward finances and resource management. One successful medic re-roll means that he's made his money back. Anything after that is just gravy. I will lose infantry if I use them to ram autoguns into 12" of an opponent, so I'm sure the opportunity will present itself.

I chose to split the infantry into a block of 3 and one of two. Aesthetically, that was what I was planning to do, but it also hedges against having a full 1/4 of my force rolling something like +1 initiative on the same level up. It also will give me a couple of options for purchasing veteran recruits- I can buy into the groups that show promise, and increases the likelihood of a Lad with Talent.

We've already played three games, so I'll soon be updating this thread with the warband's progression when I get my hands on the battle reports.

Lots of officers and cheap bodies - always a good start - firepower is definitely the way forward with these guys. I'm planning on my own Mordians soon.

I'd probably go for autoguns at least on the sergeants - keep them shooty and sacrifice a recruit for a helmet or two on your officers.

The only thing - they can't have catachan fangs - that is catachan only. The Mordian special 'thing' is the swagger.

What's the rarity on the bolt gun I don't have a handbook handy.

Looks good, I like your idea of keeping the sergeants equipment minimal as they will not be shooting but you could use the money left over from the catachan fangs to give them clubs or flails.

The bolter is Rare 7 on v0.58. But he's ok as the captain is allowed one rare item (I intend to go for this or a refractor field! for my new mordians).

Laney Very Happy

Dude... awesome batte reports (but get ready for them to be moved to the appropriate forum section!). You didn't happen to take any pics, did you?

Hi Nephilim,

Great battle reports - ace to see the squads developing - those bolters will have an impact as the campaign goes on - good call.

On the Catachan Fangs...
