I picked up the new Deathstorm box set this weekend. First, you get a nice tiny rulebook, second, you get a ton of minis, including the new character model.
To celebrate, I got in a game with my buddy Chris and broke out my Death Company army. My 1,850 point list looks like this:
25 Death Company - 5 power fists, 10 power swords, 10 CC/bolt pistols - 25 jump packs
5 Scouts with sniper rifles, camo cloaks
2 Dreads with MM, heavy flamers, drop pods
1 Level 2 Librarian (hoping to get invisibility)
Chris knew what I was bringing and stacked the deck. He brough Space Wolves, with 6 rune priests and all of the plasma weapons he could proxy. Despite taking some serious wounds the first turn, I was nearly pulled it off, but in the end I couldn't shrug off so many plasma shots that have precience. It was a lot of fun though. I think I enjoy the, "WTF?" comments the most.
One of the fun parts of tournament play is the creative names that people come up with for their army lists. I'm a bit stumped on a creative name for my Blood Angel dread list, Death Company list and White Scars.
Here's what I've been toying around with:
