summer slaughter winning lists

This weekend saw the Summer Slaughter Warhammer 40k tournament take place as an ITC Major in England. 

Mani Cheema brought so much skew to his list the buggies are careening on just two wheels. An awesome fun list for first place.

How the list works includes the Blood axe relic: Morgog’s Finkin’ Cap to make up for the 7 CP pre spent in this list. With a 50/50 chance to gain an additional command point. Who needs Boyz when you can have more wheelz than you can shake a stick at? The 3 squads are specialized enough to take advantage of infiltrating or reserves and at just 5 models are easy to keep hidden and aren’t likely to draw fire when you’re staring at 18 buggies. With such small squads and blood axe reserve manipulation the 3 units make great action monkeys especially for R.O.D.

Easily the glow up unit of the codex, the Rukkatruck Squig Buggy is used for its reliable for an Ork shooting that’s indirect. These units can fall back and shoot or charge while the scrap jets can do the same. An unrelenting threat. While the terrain can make it hard for vehicles to get to certain units, again there’s the niffty indirect fire to make up for that.

The buggies are surprising hard to pop with 9 wounds and Ramshackle. A big Mek to repair as well as a potential 5++ invulnerable save in case you go second.

Summer Slaughter Second Place List

Congratulations to Rafael Harbinson and his Whitescars which are still pulling it out and this time with no Forgeworld in the army. Specifically the twin volkite relic contemptors.

How this list works… white scars are master of the counter assault and are fast enough to pull out the first turn assaults as well. Hence the Plume of the Plains Runner, and the Chaplain’s Canticle of hate.

Adaptive strategy can be used early on to place one unit in all the doctrines especially assault doctrine so the White Scars can quickly make use of the bonus damage on their melee weapons.

Take special note of the company veterans. Yes they can stop your characters from being sniped they can also save those characters from being shot by overwatch as well using their Bodyguard ability great for escorting the characters on foot.

Shock and awe can be used by the Land Speeder Storm to also prevent overwatch. Of course that unit is easy to pop but that’s what the whirlwind is for. Using suppression fire, the overwatch is cut down and always fight last is thrown out as well.

Summer Slaughter Third Place List

Congratulations to Andrew Bourbon with his mixed Imperium List. He lost last round to Rafael Harbinson but still managed the podium in third place with a mixed Knight and Custodes list.

There’s no doubt the Knight Magaera is the best Imperial Knight and seeing 3 of them in a Knight list should be expected. Their innate Invulnerable in Melee helps keep them up and running.

Using them as Krast helps with melee re-rolls to hit. Of course all 3 are characters to take advantage of Heroic intervention using Knight Stratagems to gain the character keyword. The First Knight warlord trait will boost the reliability of the Lightning cannon while the Headsman Mark can help increase the damage for the other Magaera.

Rounding out the list are the Custodes. Covering for the lack of objective Secured for Knights, the Guardian squads are hard to shift especially the ones with sword and board. And can be used for actions such as Raise the Banner.

Leading the Custodes is one tough Character on Bike. With 9 wounds 5+++ ignore wounds, 2+ Armour save and 3++ invulnerable save he can take a hit. Using the Hurricane bolter and his melee potential he can range out and clear objectives while the Knights push forward. Easily helping this play for Engage on all fronts.

A great fun looking list. Perhaps a better match for Mani Cheema’s Buggy horde than all the White Scars he faced last round but great showing regardless.
