40k-homebrew-army-listsAnother off-meta Warhammer 9th Edition 40k army list emerged in the LVO 2022 tournament, check this one out!

9th Edition’s meta is again in flux, but some players are taking lists with units that nobody was expecting. Check out this awesome homebrew list that emerged in a tournament over the weekend. This just goes to show us that sometimes it’s more about the general’s skill than what you play.

Top Homebrew 40k Army List: LVO 40K Champs 2022

Thanks to Best Coast Pairings we are able to look back at the event as if we were there ourselves.

If you wanted to see the names and factions of the overall winners, we’ve included that below.

LVO 2022 top 8

However, we aren’t covering all those lists, instead, we will be looking at just one of our favorites this week.

15th Place: Terroxer El Rojo – Thousand Sons

Terroxer El Rojo 1

Terroxer was one of very few Thousand Sons players who made the respectable 5-1 finish at the massive LVO 2022 event. He found success with a 2 detachment list. The first is a battalion led by Ahriman and an Infernal Master. Ahriman is and always has been a fantastic psyker who is an easy include for T-sons lists. The Infernal Master on the other hand is relatively new and has been doing fairly well it seems like another great psychic support model who also brings pacts with extra benefits.

Troops keep it simple with 15 Rubric Marines, hardy and dense troops who are expensive and get the benefit of even being able to cast psychic spells.

Elites bring in a 10 man Occult Terminator squad running two Soulreaper Cannons as it is one of the best weapons for the faction as a whole. Not to mention these still get to do typical Terminator things like being immovable bricks that will just trample over other lesser models.

And just below you can see the end of the first detachment with a total of 7 Chaos Spawn to get the list closer to the 2k mark all while adding a few bodies to help with objectives and soak some wounds.

Terroxer El Rojo 2The second detachment is a patrol led by an Exalted Sorcerer, who of course, just like most T-sons HQs is another fantastic psychic support piece, this time also providing nearby units with re-rolls of 1 to hit.

Troops bring in another 5-man Rubric Marine squad and a 14 model Tzaangor unit,  which can deal some damage in melee if ignored and are generally pretty cheap compared to T-sons other options.

Finally, the list closes with 2 Contemptor Dreads running Volkite Culverins, which are perfect for whipping out 2 wound models like Marines and everything else!
