To start off with I have ordered a 1000 point list of Adeptus Mechanicus and I’m aiming to build the following list.

  • 1 Tech-Priest Dominus with an Eradication Beamer and a Phosphor Serpenta.
  • 1 Tech-Priest Enginseer, just the standard loadout.
  • 2 squads of 6 Skitarii Rangers where 2 rangers are armed with an Arc Rifle per squad, the alpha’s are equipped with a Galvanic Rifle and an Arc Maul.
  • 2 squads of 5 Skitarii Rangers where 2 rangers are armed with a Transuranic Arquebus and 1 is equipped with an Omnispex per squad, the alpha’s just have a Galvanic Rifle.
  • 2 squads of 8 Skitarii Vanguard where 2 vanguard are armed with a Plasma Caliver and 1 equipped with an Enhanced Data-Tether per squad, the alpha’s are armed with a Radium Carbine and a Taser Goad.
  • 1 squad of Sicarian Infiltrators armed with Flechette Blasters & Taser Goads.
  • 3 Onager Dunecrawlers, 1 armed with an Icarus Array, 1 with a Neutron Laser & Cognis Heavy Stubber, 1 with a Twin Heavy Phosphor Blasters, all of them also get the additional Cognis Heavy Stubber and a Broad Spectrum Data-Tether.

This list is by no means the best list to start with, or the best list you can make in a 1000 points, but it will be a fun start. I will be adding what I feel necessary.

I definitely want to add some Sydonian Dragoons and Ironstrider Ballistarii, I’m also definitely thinking about getting a squad of Secutarii Peltasts from Forge World, but these is just ideas for the future.

What I'm buying.

To build this list I have ordered (ordered 14th of January) the following:

  • 1 Start Collecting Skitarii
  • 4 boxes of Skitarii
  • 2 Onager Duncrawlers
  • 1 box of Sicarians
  • 1 Tech-Priest Enginseer
  • Plus the codex and some extras

Anyone who knows basic maths (and knows what is in a box of Skitarii) will notice that I bought a box of Skitarii too many. This is on purpose, just to get some extra bits so that I can model the models the way I want.

Why did I not buy a battleforce box? Well, they are sold out everywhere even on Games Workshop’s own webstore.

Why did I not buy multiple start collecting sets since they include the equivalent to a box of Skitarii and an Onager Dunecrawler plus another Dominus for less then buying it separate? Again, sold out everywhere and only available on the Games Workshop webstore as 1 per order and I didn’t want to go and make multiple orders.

Look at all the shiny boxes!!!Look at all the shiny boxes!!!
