I'd say you're a bit light on infantry, but that's my taste. I like the overseer and oppressor, I never get it them into my list because of the point cost.

Did you design the list with the specific missions in mind? Maybe you don't need that much infantry...

I'm curious what you're choosing

Cheers

It's an interesting looking list. I love the idea of pairing and Opressor and Overseer (or, for that matter, an annihilator). I agree that you are light on infantry, by conventional standards, but I can imagine the corruptors stepping into that role by injecting razor worms into objective buildings, et.

I like it! :D

The main reason for this list is to get as much out of the oppressor as possible. I'm aware that the lack of infantry might look like a problem for objectives based games, but razorworms can still search for objectives, just not pick them up. So if they are in the same building as warriors and they find it, they can immediately pass it to the warriors. The only real weakness i see with this list is a lack of long range aa, which will make it vulnerable to interceptors.

You could probably swap out some Monitors for a set of Minders.

Otherwise, good list IMO.

The reason for 2 units of monitors are to counter freeriders and medusas, 2 units that are very popular, and have caused big problems for me in the past.

Minders aren't much use, in my experience unless you take at least 8 of them. And I'd rather take 8 monitors than 8 minders.

Yeah, I do the same in my Scourge list. I'd personally rather have 2 lots of Monitors than one of each. It was just a suggestion, since you mentioned the AA.

I wouldn't say they're useless in 4s though. They're good at mobbing a light dropship that's already activated, towards the end of the turn and can be pretty great at sucking in AA - which, as part of a larger plan to sneak something really nasty past the AA screen can work out really bloody well. :twisted:

I've had a re-think following the errata from January.

I've taken advice from stompzilla and replaced a monitor unit with some minders, since the errata meant I lost 2 shots from the oppressor and I also had to remove the aa from the harbinger as a result of the points increase.

I've also considered maybe I won't need 2 units of minders, given that I have 7 models with plasma hoses, giving me extra shots against medusas and freeriders.

So here is the new list:

oppressor and overseer
Clash: 1484/1500 points
Standard Army
  • Standard Roster [1484/1500 pts]
    • Oppressors [455 pts]
      • Oppressor: Oppressor, Harbinger [195 pts]
      • Overseer: Overseer(Master) [260 pts]
    • Vanguard [429 pts]
      • Reaper Squad: 3x Reaper, Despoiler(+Twin Plasma Cannons) [219 pts]
      • ^ Sharing ^ Hunter Squad: 6x Hunter [210 pts]
    • Warriors [174 pts]
      • Warrior Horde: 2x Warriors, Intruder Alpha [94 pts]
      • Corruptors: Corruptor [80 pts]
    • Warriors [174 pts]
      • Warrior Horde: 2x Warriors, Intruder Alpha [94 pts]
      • Corruptors: Corruptor [80 pts]
    • Occupation Patrol [56 pts]
      • Minders: 4x Minder, Intruder Beta [56 pts]
    • Occupation Patrol [196 pts]
      • Monitors: 4x Monitor, Intruder Beta [56 pts]
      • Eviscerators: 2x Eviscerators, Intruder Alpha [140 pts]

You missed the mini-arc caster on the Harby. Otherwise, it looks like a rather meaty list.

What will he remove to get the points for it though?

I prefer Destroyer to Eviscerator but that's personal choice I think.

Looks like a decent list, similar to something I was thinking of doing when it came time to mix my list up a bit. Don't have any meaning suggestions to it since it looks tight! Be sure to let us know how it does!
