NOVA GT Lists

The NOVA GT 2017 brought together 206 Warhammer 40k degenerates in an 8 round battle to the top.   Here are some of the lists from the top competitors this weekend.

Some sort of disclaimer, as I always get the same question:  Why did you get this or that, not those.  I pick lists that a) I can get and b) find interesting and diversified.  For example, the top 6 guard lists are mostly the same, there’s very little point to show them all.

13-0 Andrew Gonyo, Invitational &GT Champ

Andrew, Tony Kopach and Stephen “Juice” Fore all played a pretty similar 150 conscript fulled list.  While Gonyo’s features Tauroxes and Elysians, Juice’s feature Basilisks, Loads of mortars and ratlings.  Tony had a much more aggressive play style than both these players, and most game I saw his units slugging it across the board in no time.

Kelsey Haley – We’ll talk more about this list later this week.

Supreme Command Detachment:

  • Warlord: Aetaos’Rau’Keres
  • 5x Malefic Lord

Supreme Command Detachment:

  • 5x 1 Blue Horror, 10 Brimstone Horrors
  • 3x Armoured Sentinel, Lascannon
  • 3x Renegade Command Squad, Lascannon
  • 3x Renegade Heavy Weapon Team, Mortar

168 Summoning Points

The 168 points are to break off the pink into blues and then Brimstones.  I believe it was never used as anything else the entire weekend.

Brad Townsend – The greatest GK list I’ve seen since ever.  I call it GK & Bullshit

The Brigade detachment gives the grey knight part plenty of Command Points to go around.  This is an agressive army that can wipe the floor with 100 guardsmen/brimstone in a single turn.

  1. Thanks for the lists, ever since the cancerous BCP app appeared it’s been harder to get a hold of them. Add a little commentary for additional info & entertainment and it’s a killer combo. Looking forward to great things from Mismatched Play in the future!
