I was watching the NBA all star game and for some reason wondered what that would be like in 40k.

Here is the challege. Create an army using a standard force organisation chart, filling each slot with any eligible choice from any available codex.

Lets see what choices keep poping up and we can safely determine our 40k All Star team.

I dont have my books with me at the moment so I will post a chart soon.

Have fun with it because, remember that the All Stars play for the fans to enjoy the game, not just for the win.

Is there a points limit?

Squallish

Can units buy other armies' Dedicated Transports?

Neat Idea Alarum. We should do a xenos and imperium version though.

Let's go 1850pts list (average tourney size?) I will have to get back on what list.

Three Carnifexes, Leman Russ Squadron, Chosen Terminators in a LR, Plague Marines in Rhinos, a pair of Deathstrikes for a laugh and a pair of Khorne DPs to lead them.

What do you shoot first?

1850 is a good start. Units only take whats in their options. It might be neat to make it good vs evil All Stars. What do you guys think?

Hmmm.

HQ:
2x Farseers, Guide/Doom.

Elites:
1 unit of terminators with dedicated land raider.
1 unit of assault terminators with dedicated land raider.
1 unit of battle psykers in chimera

Troops:
6 entire IG platoons, consisting:
6 command squads, each with 3 meltas and a vox
30 infantry squads, 15 autocannons, 15 mortars, 30 grenade launchers, 30 commissars and 60 power weapons.
30 Heavy weapons squads, with 30 lascannons, 30 mortars and 30 autocannons
12 special weapons squads, with 36 demolition charges
300 conscripts
Platoon Commander Chenkov with send in the next wave.
Platoon Commander Al'Rahem
36 Chimeras with heavy stubbers.

Fast Attack:
3 Valkyries with Rocket pods and door heavy bolters
3 Valkyrie Vendettas
3 Valkyrie Vendettas

Heavy Support:
3 Leman Russ with hull heavy bolter, sponson heavy bolters and heavy stubbers.
3 Leman Russ Demolishers with Plasma Cannons and Hull Lascannons and heavy stubbers
3 Leman Russ Executioners with Plasma Cannons and Hull Lascannons and heavy stubbers

Edit: ninja'd by the points total. So we're looking for the most points effective units. Hmmm. Psyker battle squads and Guardsman Marbo are good contenders, as is a farseer and fire dragons.

Haha! I for one would hate to be calling that team onto the field. It would take hours.

"And wearing number 714 standing 5'11" tall from the University of Catachan...Laaaaarrrryyy Joneeeeees!"

And the headcount onto the bus after the game wouldnt be fun either.

Doom/Guide Seer with Sternguard or Long Fangs could be fun

Give the daemon prince lash.

Lash + Manticore would be unimaginably cheesy.

10 genestealers in a land raider redeemer?

Let's go 1850pts list (average tourney size?) I will have to get back on what list.

where do you play, just curious?

the most common sized games ive seen are either 1500, or 1750 and 2000 for tourniments.

new nids will be

Ellites Doom or zonthropes
heavy Tyrgon/mawlock

Askari
16-02-2010, 13:30
Hah, I forgot my Elites choices, edited above.

SatireSphere:

I actually didn't think of that... imagine Lash & Manticore, or Lash & Doom of Malan'tai, or Lash & Trygon Prime Bio-electric, or Lash & Flamers of Tzeentch....

Lash prince + manticores = hilarious.

I'd be looking at Guard fire support, for Ork combat troops.

I think the sheer points efficiency of the choices outweighs most cheesy tricks.

Although if you put the Doom Malanthi in a Valkyrie, the field now covers a rough circle ~20" in diameter....

I do not know but a horde army with IG Orks and Nids... 1,850 pts only with troops and some artillery support (griffons/biovores).

Three Carnifexes, Leman Russ Squadron, Chosen Terminators in a LR, Plague Marines in Rhinos, a pair of Deathstrikes for a laugh and a pair of Khorne DPs to lead them.

What do you shoot first?

First the Marines in the Rhino, making them very less effective, also I can shoot less powerful weapons at it and still have a chance to cripple the Transport. The deamon princes of Khorne are somewhat troublesome, but I would wait until they get in range for Strength 10. Ignore them until that. Next I would shoot at the Leman Russ Squadron, having a slightly higher chance of doing substantial damage than on a single land raider. The death strike is food for my deep striking units. The Carnifices are a joke.. really what can they do..
See, all I have to do is fear the Land Raider.

Oh and my choices would be space wolves as troops, along with plague Marines and Ork Boyz, a Land Raider, a Hammerhead an Exorcist, Stormshield Terminators, and a Space Wolve Psyker with a Lash Daemon Prince as HQ. Harlequins are an elite choice, right? I take these ones then. If the Vendetta is a fast attack, than these ones too.

How would Chaos Daemons (splitting the army?) and Necrons (phase out?) work?

Anyway, I have to go with a theme: 22 Walkers. It's not the strongest, but it'd be a blast:

HQ

Big Mek w/KFF (attached to shoota boyz)


TROOP

12 Grots w/runtherder (to sit on an objective)

30 Shoota boyz w/3 big shootas, nob, powerklaw, bosspole

Deff Dread w/big shoota and burna


ELITE

Ironclad Dread w/multi-melta, heavy flamer, drop pod

Ironclad Dread w/multi-melta, heavy flamer, drop pod

Ironclad Dread w/multi-melta, heavy flamer, drop pod


FAST

3 Sentinel Scouts w/auto-cannons

3 Sentinel Scouts w/auto-cannons

3 Sentinel Scouts w/auto-cannons


HEAVY

3 Killa Kans w/KMBs

Let's go!
Firstly, the situation: A Chaos and/or Necron and/or Tyrannids and/or Tau and/or Eldars (both ways) is about to attack Armaggedon.
But the defenders are ready.

Armaggedon defending Army:

HQ:
Ghazgkhull Mag Uruk Thrakka
Commissar Yarrick
Those two would never accept that Armaggedon becomes someone else playground!

Elite:
Warwagoned Meganobz
Deep Striking Terminators

Fast Attack:
Vendettas
Deff Koptas

Troops:
Trukked Boyz
Steel Legion mech-infantry.

Heavy Support:
Leman Russes
Basilisks
Warwagons

Battle cry: "Armaggedon is ours!"

Doom/Fortune Seer with Assault Terms in a LR.

And you thought the Jetbike Council was scary.

16-02-2010, 23:19
Fire Warriors in Chimeras. :evilgrin: A big mob of banshees in a Crusader also sounds absolutely terrifying.

16-02-2010, 23:32
Genestealers in DE Raiders, or Ork Trukks?

I'd use at least one unit of plaguebearers for objective holding, as they're the best objective-holding unit in the game (well, maybe except the tervigon...) and they laugh in the face of battle cannon shells. Those and flamers will be my picks from the daemons codex thankyouverymuch. Maybe I'll claim the flamers are twin-linked in an army with Vulcan ;)

I'd like to fit Grotsnik in there just to find some cute unit to give feel no pain...

polymphus
16-02-2010, 23:59
Question; can only tyranids benefit from the Tervigon's FnP/synapse, or is it all units in the same army? I'm thinking fearless/FnP IG conscripts would be great for objective holding.

Why is there a points limit? As an all-star list shouldn't it simply be the best option from any codex in its given FOC, filling out an entire FOC eg. 2 HQ 6 Troop 3 Elite 3 Fast Attack 3 Heavy. With no repeatable entries.

Grax
17-02-2010, 18:27
Okay, this one's for real (non-themed). I thought about it quite a while, and what I came up with was very shooty, mostly Imperial Guard, with a touch of Orks and Dark Eldar:

HQ

Big Mek w/Kustom Force Field, Bosspole (in platoon sgt's chimera)


TROOP

Platoon:
Sgt + 4 flamers, chimera w/heavy flamer
10 Guardsmen w/lascannon X4
3 Missile launcher teams X2

10 Imperial Guard Veterans w/3 meltas, and chimera w/heavy flamer X3


FAST

3 Rokkit Buggies


HEAVY

Ravager w/3 Dissintegrators X2

3 Leman Russ Demolishers w/heavy flamers
