It's always an exciting thing to start a new army, and this is no different! Behold, the first steps to Deathwing!
Of course, it's always a good idea to have a plan, and here's my plan for Deathwing:
1) Put together a 1750 pt army of nothing but Deathwing and maybe a supporting character, say, a Librarian or a Chaplain.
2) Upon establishing the first 1750 pts, further expansion will comprise only of adding units that further the efficacy of Deathwing, i.e. Ravenwing for more accurate deep strike. This may not even be necessary, as I've always got my other Angels to fall back on, eh?
So anyways, here's my idea for a Deathwing list:
DWing Command Squad with Plasma cannon, DWing Champion and Standard of Fortitude
5 DWing Knights
10 DWing Terminators w 2 Chainfists, 4 Hammers & Shields, Plasma Cannon and Assault Cannon
10 DWing Terminators w 2 Chainfists, 4 Hammers & Shields, Plasma Cannon and Heavy Flamer
The strategy is simple enough. Start with nothing on the board, Deathwing Assault in, cause as much damage as possible in one round of shooting, try not to die, then get in and beat face with fist and hammer and whatever else is handy. Simple, yes?
I've a couple of other plans I'm mulling over, but whatever the case may be, Belial and the DWing Command Squad are at the centre of it. Lotsa proxy playtesting in the months ahead...
