Mantis Warriors Devastators & FLAGS Tournament 4/2/2011

2nd Company Devastators

Due to the hit and run and gorilla tactics employed by the Mantis Warriors, the chapter rarely took up defensive positions or utilized massed heavy weapon squads. It was only at the closing of the Badab war, when the Mantis Warriors had their backs against the wall, with no where else to go, that they began fielding Devastator units in mass. The Second Company even had to take the heavy weapon troopers out of multiple Tactical squads to form Devastator units, as there were no standing Devastator squads in the company.

Today might be Adepticon for some, but I'm going to a FLAGS tournament!!! The last couple of weeks I've been testing out lists with Sicarius so I can use my new Captain Hoenir model and Devastators for the first time in a tournament.
