Returning to the Flesh Tearers
I don't know why but I've a hankering to return to the Flesh Tearers. Must be underdog syndrome. I think because the army did not transition as well to 6th edition as others that there is more freedom to take a fun list. No problem then to have Seth leading a frenzied bunch of marines across the table. If you lose so what lol. Fooling around with army builder I've been thinking of running the following list at 2000 points:
Librarian - blood lance, shield
Priest - Power Axe
5 man assault squad - rhino, melta gun
5 man assault squad - razorback, twin linked lascannon
10 man assault squad - rhino, 2 melta guns
10 man taq squad - rhino, plasma gun, missile launcher
7 Death Company
1 Death Company Dread - claws
2 Baal Preds - heavy bolter sponsons
Attack Bike - multi-melta
Pred - lascannon sponsons
2k in total.
In a way its anti-meta in that there is quit a bit of melta weapons in the list. The way I see it working is the lascannon pred and razorback stay back field giving me some long range cover fire as well as a little 5 man deck chair unit. The Baal preds will scout move up a flank away from the main thrust of my rhino rush. Its a move that always paid off in 5th edition. The three rhinos push into mid table turn one utilizing the 5+ cover save and 5+ FnP bubbles. Seth then can ride in glory with the death company in the storm raven hitting what ever target presents itself.
Over all the army is the closest I have to completion. I have all the models. Going to give it a spin next time I play.
