Hey everyone,

Ive got a bit a experimental list I've created and started getting a couple of games into. Still early days but its starting to take shape. I'm aiming at an Explorator Fleet carrying all the new Skitarii units release from 40k recently. Adding in some small titans and some knights from the Knight World list. Apologies for the knee jerk changes, its hard for a noob like me to create a full new list with rules and units. Im hoping to leave this version now for a decent amount of time.

Enjoy fellow gamers. Feel free to give feedback or have some games.


Also want to point out the amazing range at Vanguard to make a Explorator List
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/produc ... ershadows/


Changes to V1 Experimental
Master of Machines only effects AVs and LVs
Arch Magos cant join formations containing Magos or Tech Priests
Tech Priests lose Leader and gain master of machines (2)
Magos lose inspiring and gain leader
Elite Infantry upped to 8 strong and 250 points
Disintegrators cant unlock support and and elite
AA for Onagers upped to 45cm max 2 formation


Changes to Version 0.05
Kastalan Robots up 50 points
Skorpius Cohort added to give the core some options
Skorpius Disintegrators up to 4+ armour as the Onager Dunecrawler overshadows it. Hull is enclosed to kinda fits.
Added Secutarii Peltasts and Hoplites as upgrades to the Vanguard Maniple to give them some assault power.
Rangers to AP5+ Disrupt from AP6+ Sniper.


Changes from the last version:
Cheaper transports
Sicarians armour to 4+
Character units gain fearless
Vanguard guns altered
Master of Machines reworked, now just bring back units.
Titans added

This is pretty interesting. It really resembles a list I'd leverage for a friendly play ad mech list. Nothing bad about the NetEA one; it just scratches a different itch.

One question is the dunecrawler: is it supposed to be that fast? I don't remember it being all fleet of foot in in the new 40k dex but I could easily be misremembering as it was a drinking holiday yesterday

Yeah, I think it's a bit fast as well. I've put the Dunecrawler at 20cm speed in Questoris Mechanicus since in 40k it has the rule "Crawler". It's apparently consistent and methodical in its movement.

You could make this the Mars list since alot of the new skitarii stuff is focused there.

Renamed it with the better name, thanks for that.

Also fixed up the onager speed and copied the AA weapon from the questoris knight list.

Hopefully have more pics to post up later. Keep an eye out.

Had a couple games with the list. A few things stood out to me and my opponent. Few changes listed in the first post.

Will try and get some more games. Happy for input/feedback if anyone is interested.

Should be able to give this a run at our next meet. Definitely keen on the explorator concept, see how well this fits it.

I like the look of the list so far, I think it's probably ready to be adopted by NetEA, it's getting test games in and it would be a shame to lose momentum if it gets ignored

Got some good feedback from some guys offline recently on the list and pointed out some flaws in the list and that a lot of formations weren't really worth taking as they were.

Changes are posted in the first post after their feedback and advice on how to fix it.

Ive changed the list to experimental and hopefully it gets the chance to move to developmental and i can play with or against it at some tournaments.
