Livestream Preview: New World Eaters vs Custodes


Date: Thursday 23rd February 2023

Time: 7:30pm


Introduction


Here we are again my dear reader, Thursday evening 40k Live battle report. Preacher here with another preview and as well as writing the preview I am also playing! whoop whoop.


Tonight also see's JD the 'Master of Chaos' bring the brand new World Eaters and the Lord of Khorne himself ANGRON! he is very angry!


To face the most angry person in the world who just seems to want to bash everything I am bringing out the Hero's of the Imperium, the emperors finest the mighty Adeptus Custodes.


What a game this is going to be... I can guarantee 1 thing... there will be Blood for the Blood God tonight... MWHAHAHA!


Cough Cough... Sorry something must have come over me, let get onto the game.


Mission:

Arks of Omen: 11 Recover the Relics


Tonight's mission is a good one but could be hard for the World Eaters in some way.


It is a 6 objective mission but one which is only a hold 1 hold 2. This makes the primary much easier to get 8 points a turn on, which is positive for JD as the Custodes are very strong on the primary game right now.

. War Dog Executioner: Diabolus heavy stubber, Undivided - Blessing of the Dark Master

. War Dog Executioner: Diabolus heavy stubber


++ Total: [99 PL, 5CP, 1,995pts] ++


Lets Talk about this is... firstly Angron, he is in the list by popular demand winning the poll convincingly, an absolute power house in melee. Either 13 attacks at strength 14 -4 d3+3 damage or a whopping 37 attacks at strength 9 -3 1 damage. Oh and he can come back multiple times... why would you not take him.

Next is the Lord on juggernaut, it is such a cool model let's face it it is so cool running around with a marine on top of a rhino... and he buffs core units with +2 movement... this is good because it means that the infantry are actually quite quick.

Khorne Berzerkers, that back bone of any good world eater army with ton of attacks killing almost anything they touch, and obsec, a great pick for the list.


The Brand new 8bound think possessed but better, very scary unit and will hit hard and fast with option to make them all damage 3 with a strat... WOW!


Exalted 8 bound are very much like 8bound but smaller units and designed to take down the heavy armoured units like dreads, or maybe custodes!

Spawn are basically 25pt blood tithe points... can't go wrong with that.


War dog executioners have obsec, 60"range strength 7 ap2 3 damage is no joke, and provide the range that the world eaters often lack.

. 4x Witchseeker: 4x Witchseeker Flamer


+ Dedicated Transport +


Anathema Psykana Rhino [4 PL, 75pts]


Welcome to my Solar Watch Army... it is based around a big brick of 10 Wardens... with the new balance data slate they got obsec back which is brilliant for them... they are tough shift and hit really hard in combat and with the solar watch warlord trait on the Vexilus Praetor for advance and charge... they are fast... the Vexilus Praetor also gives me redeploy units which gives me a great tactical advantage.


2 smaller units of Sagittarum provide me with some much-needed firepower and will help me hold objectives at the back.


My Allarus Custodians are brilliant I really love them, 60pts, obsec 2 and massively help me with Behind Enemy lines.


The Witchseekers really have play I think, they and the rhino give me a 6" pre-game move... they have flamers and they are 60pts... they have obsec and they help me against psychic powers... now granted in this game that is not going to be important but in other games it will.


My Vertus Praetors give me much-needed anti-tank, the free reserves means I can bring them in later if I need to keep them safe, they are a toolbox unit which I really like.


Finally my Callidus Assassin... is in the list for 1 reason and that is to make it much easier for me to get Behind enemy lines, I like building in redundancy into my lists, and 90points are not a lot of guarantee my one more turn of Behind Enemy Lines... she is also not bad in combat.


Conclusion

Well we have seen the lists and the mission I for 1 cannot wait for tonight's game, join us 7.30pm using the link above.
