Vanguard vs hate: Vanguard Assemble!

Postby Josh » Tue Oct 27, 2015 2:31 pm

So we are weeks away from what looks to be an awsome event, the pack requires that we as a club field certain combinations of lists.

Lets make sure we have our toys in order!

First off the team is currently:



player list (ie. People that have paid):

Jake Hilleard (Bristol Vanguard)
Curtis-John Dyer (Bristol Vanguard)
Peter Acs (Bristol Vanguard) - BFG Only
Dan Evans (Bristol Vanguard) - Saturday Only
Josh Longden (Bristol VanguarD)

Interested List (ie. People that have said they will attend, but not yet paid)

Ross Pearson (Bristol Vanguard)
Adam Sardar (Bristol Vanguard / Hired Gun)
Matt Smith (Bristol Vanguard)
Dom Sugrue (Bristol Vanguard / Hired Gun)
Jason Gaylard (Bristol Vanguard)

Individually we must all field:

400 points combat patrol
1000 individual list
1000 doubles lisr
2000 individuals list.

As a club we need

Flyers game - 2k of vanguard flyers

Grand Battle - 3 2000 point armyies with no limits on how many points you spend on lord of wars.bthis will be a 3 on 3 game.

So, who is attending that can donate (painted) flyers to the battle of bristol and who will cary our honour onto the field of titans?

Hi guys,

Whilst I can't make the event if anyone would like to borrow some units I have a number of 30k models I could get done in time and a bunch of space wolves (one storm fang, one storm wolf if you need flyers) people are welcome to borrow. Off the top of my head if anyone wants one of the following units done for the weekend let me know:

Palatine blades
Death shroud terminators
Gorgon terminators
Several primarchs and characters (I can make a list later)
Reaver squad

I'm sure there's more!

I've a Storm Talon in imperial Fists colours! Also, for the grand battle, I'm being encouraged to get my Legio Fureans Reaver Titan ready.

I can throw in a 30k fire raptor and storm talon. I'd prefer to stay out of the titan stuff but I could be persuaded to roll out my scars.

Maybee for one of the 2k triples teams we can pool our knights?

Titans love a strength d chainsword up em.

Think 2k of knights is 5? I have one.

For the 1kndoubles im toying with an idea to run a 10 model single unit army.

Take a big Cohort cybernetica formation for a stroll. Leave all the objective securing shinanigans to my partner.

I have two knights and wouldn't mind playing in the big gane, as long as it's on day one! Maybe we can borrow cais as well?

I think 'friendly' is subjective when it comes to 6k!

Right so here is where we stand so far:

The Vanguard Triples Team

Matt - Fielding Reaver Titan + Space marines
Cai - Fielding Warhound + Knights

Some options for the last spot, please speak up if you are keen to play, otherwise it may well be Dan fielding more knights, or wolves, or a warhound (A club member has kindly offered use of his for the day for the club - subject to some assurances of us not breaking it!).

I could bring / loan a couple of Guard super heavy tanks if we need it but tbh I could seem them being outclassed by the titans. Poor Shadowsword does not really measure up these days with his single D shot.

HATE Triples Team Intelligence

Warlord Titan.
??
??

That is going to be an AWSOME table.

The Big Flyers Game

Vendetta 170 (Josh)
Vendetta 170 (Josh)
Vendetta 170 (Josh)

Storm Eage (Points?) (Dan)
Storm Wolf (Points?) (Dan)

Storm Talon (Points) (Matt)

Fire Raptor (Ross)
Storm Talon (Ross)

Not sure on the points of all of these, we may still need a few more. Also seeking one daring pilot to lead this formation. Goggles and scarf mandatory.

I think I'm tempted to go full hired gun with my Eldar - and be as nasty as possible. However, I could be persuaded to take marines instead and go for Team Vanguard - it very much depends what toys I can access out of storage.

As for flyers, I have an Eldar Crimson Hunter and a Space Marine Storm Talon.

dom dom dom, shocking!

pauls told me its meant to be a friendly occasion and to 'leave your beards at home'!

points wise for the space wolves flyers:

Stormwolf - with 2xTL multi-melta and TL las-cannon and Hellfrost destructor - 235pts
Stormeagle - can be upgraded from 215pts to 300. 300 gets you a TL multimelta, 2 X TL las-cannons and armouured ceramite.

Do we know when the big game is, is it on the Sat?

I have access to two of my own knights, one from a friend so with the other titan thats probably the points sorted.

If no one else wants to, I don't mind piloting. Saying that, I don't use flyers very often so it may not be our best bet and I won't fight anyone for it.

Fire Raptor (30k), Reaper Autocannon Batteries + Armoured Ceremite = 230 +20 (Hellstrikes if there's points go spare)

Stormtalon, Skyhammer Missiles, Assault Cannon = 115

C'mon on Dom, Vanguard! We've got fewer players as it is.

With my raf past I should probably be piloting the flyers ( or at least repairing the ground support equipment)! I don't mind at all. Let someone else play the big game!

40k is famously realistic, so that definitely makes sense. :D

I must insist that our Air Commander wear a Biggles costume, or at least hat and scarf.

According to wiki, Biggles lived most of his life in Inida but holidayed in Norfolk with his eccentric uncle, "Dickpa". :shock:

I'll happily play for Vanguard - however I'll struggle to do the Sunday and I'll need to borrow an army. I've discovered that all my armies are hidden in storage and will be an absolute pig to get out.

Imperial Fists eh? Crimson Fist older brothers? Could well do. Put me in for the Saturday definitely. I'll see if I can jig Sunday bits around to do Sunday as well.

It actually states Ross that you have two players each side for the flyers game so we could be wingman!
