My Decision

I am really torn on what list I want to take to Battle for Stones River/Adepticon. While the new update to the Black Templars make them a good army until somebody pointed out to me that it was basically what I was running before but with more fire power and a crappy HQ. My Shrike list is completely different and I think will be tougher and more tactically versitile. Here are both of my ideas. Let me know what you guys think?

Thanks

I'm thinking I like the BT list a bit more - it seems like you get a lot more for the points with them than the regular IF's.

For the IF list - why are the attack bikes in one squad?

Mainlty for BFSR. If they are in 2 squads then I give up 2 extra kp in one of the missions of which I am pretty sure we will play.

I prefer the Templar list. Termies are going to get the job done son .

I would play the Fists. They are the ones you are the most familiar with. Go with what you know. Maybe after Adepticon you can start the Templars.

That is my problem now. My Crimson Fists are coming along nicely but I do not feel like I can really compete with them. BFSR is the last tourney for me for awhile. So I really want to give my best shot. Just don't know if I can do that with the Crimson Fists.

Same goes for you. Do they really give you the edge you need?
