I am not sure that your suggested list is legal under the terms of unlocking support formations. Can 3 support formations be unlocked with only the 2 marine formations? Same with the Cultists and the formations they are unlocking.


Yeah, it is legal. The Cultists unlock 6 formations (2 in the Cultist section, 2 in the Elite section and 2 Support) while the Alpha Legion Marines unlock 2 in the Support section.

What would you use for a fire raptor model?


Not sure at this point, but Vanguard has some pretty good proxies.

When i was looking at the list and what it had to offer my worry was it going against the other 2 lists I was considering and will probably also eventually collect. That would be Minervan Imperial Guard and Orks with a Great Gargant. Does your suggested list have the ability to face off against Warlord sized formations even in small quantities? Or is it a combination of hard hitting marines and quantity of squishy infantry at the expense of a lot of those Big AT weapons?


In Epic Armageddon, huge formations are not necessarily that useful since the main scenario played is about taking objectives. Having more activations than your opponent is really good too for a bunch of reasons. Very few lists can reliably take down a Great Gargant or Warlord, so often the opponent can just ignore the big titan and go after everything else in the list instead.

Without experience playing games at this scale and the lack of good youtube games my knowledge is very theoretical. Heavily objective based game so high mobility is paramount but also with a combination of AT in quantity for vehicle popping and Heavy AT for large targets but not at the expense of AP for the large infantry formations. The terminators are going to be a must I think and your slant toward air assets is also a fun twist.


Yeah, it's got a bit of everything. It is just a suggestion tho. I strongly suggest you get some trial games with some borrowed list if possible (or on Tabletop Simulator or Vassal if you have got an opponent that's willing to do that). That will make it easier for you to understand the dynamic of the game, which is really different from e.g. 40k.
