Competitive Innovations: List Archetypes

This page acts as a summary of commonly seen list archetypes in the 40K metagame, providing a quick reference to how some lists that we see again and again function. The page is split into a section for current builds and an archive for lists that have rotated out of the metagame for whatever reason, but might still be linked from older articles.

Inclusion Criteria

Credit: Robert “TheChirurgeon” Jones

Not every version of every army is common enough to get a place on this page, so just because it isn’t listed doesn’t mean it isn’t a valid build. In general, for an army to get included on this page we would expect it to have:

  • Made at least three top four finishes at GT+ events.
  • Done so in the hands of at least two different players.
  • Show strong evidence that it is being played by at least a reasonable number of players beyond that.

Are We Missing Something?

If you think a list archetype is common enough that it should be on this page send us an email at contact@goonhammer.com. Bonus points if you can point to an edition of Competitive Innovations that featured a good example!

Current

Adeptus Mechanicus

Mars & Lucius

Mars/Lucius combines the deadly shooting efficiency of Mars Ironstriders, Wrath of Mars and often a couple of Stratoraptors with the durable infantry and early game Solar Flare sucker punch of Lucius to create a list that can deal brutal damage out of the gate while still having the staying power to play the long game.

Mars & Lucius Plane Spam

A spin on the standard Mars/Lucius list, this cuts down everything that isn’t Skitarii and planes to give outrageous reach turn one and a very uniform and hard to attack defensive profile. Has the advantage that it can deal a nightmarish turn one punch whatever the terrain, but can’t hide its assets as well in the mirror.

Drukhari

Drukhari Goodstuff

The Drukhari codex thrives because a whole bunch of their units are just good at what they do. These builds exploit that, bringing in a powerful mixture of shooting threats (usually Trueborn and the guns on a bunch of transports), melee trade pieces (Incubi, Succubi) and general board control (Hellions, Courts of the Archon) to play one of the finest all-rounder games in 40K.

Double Trueborn

A shootier skew on goodstuff that dials back some of the trade pieces to bring in a second Kabal and unit of Trueborn, usually run with either Black Heart/Obsidian Rose to access the two different kinds of free re-roll, or swapping one of those for a detachment of Poisoned Tongue to gain access to Insidious Misdirection, allowing the Trueborn to be kept safe out of the gate.

Talos Drukhari

Talos were a terror in 8th, and although they’ve had a bit of a lag post-codex, it turns out they’re still great, just with a completely different setup to what they were run with last edition. This time around, the hotness is combining the Artisans of the Flesh custom Coven (-1D) with Talos loaded with ichor injectors, heat lances and either scalpels or Talos gauntlets. That creates a very durable unit with an extremely broad set of damage dealing tools, and they’ve also got the considerable upside of being far easier to hide on many tournament tables than most Drukhari toys. They also pair extremely effectively wtih Cronos as they love picking up the Pain Syphon buff early on (and with heat lances, can easily spike something to do so). They’re a relative newcomer in terms of top lists, but there have been a flood of good results for them, so onto the list they go!

Space Marines

It’s not going to be mentioned every single time, but it’s worth noting that almost all top Marine builds will be using at least some Vanguard Veterans with lighting claws and storm shields to provide some melee punch.

Iron Hands Dreadnoughts

Time is a flat circle, and Iron Hands lists designed to slam the opponent out of the gate with a Drop Pod-powered opening salvo then grind them into the dust with the enormous efficiency of their dreadnoughts are back in a big way. Often (but not always) run as Successors with Whirlwind of Rage and Master Artisans, as the big draw is the superdoctrine (especially for Drop Pods and units that can’t otherwise get re-rolls) and the ability to make a Volkite Contemptor a Character with March of the Ancients.

Deathwatch Dreadnoughts

Deathwatch have also been getting in on the Dreadnought action recently, taking advantage of some key relics and warlord traits they have the boost up Redemptors and Volkite Contemptors (the best types). The Dominus Aegis takes care of Redemptors’ singular weakness (no invulnerable save) while Nowhere to Hide and the Vhorkan-Pattern Auspicator significantly boost both flavours against lots of top metagame builds. Optionally, these builds can also take advantage of the ability to build Proteus Kill Teams that can split out a combat squad of 3-4 bikers and 1-2 VanVets, providing super-mobile and relatively durable ObSec models to control the board while the Dreads do their work.

Space Wolves

Space Wolves are arguably the best Marine Supplement right now if you want to play a relatively normal all-rounder sort of game plan. They can lean in pretty hard on Dreadnoughts to some success (as they also provide great support to Redemptors via Storm Caller and Counter Charge), but they’ve got plenty of other things going for them – cheaper VanVet equivalents, slightly better Devastators (who have a way to ignore hit penalties out of a drop pod in Keen Senses) and access to a great utility datasheet in Cyberwolves. Current metagame signs look slightly ominous for them, as they’re the only Marine faction that routinely relies on a Psyker (bad into Grey Knights and Thousand Sons), but they’re coming into the current environment as a real force.

Can also be run as Successors very comfortably – the Whirlwind of Rage/Born Heroes combo aligns very well with what the supplement wants to be doing.

Dark Angels Deathwing and Friends

Dark Angels have had lots of valid builds since their supplement landed, but as the metagame in general has gotten meaner they’ve generally coalesced on lists that use a reasonably heavy Deathwing contingent to control the board (often Bladeguard and basic Deathwing Terminators with some spicy gear) backed up by powerful characters, a bit of spike shooting and Talonmasters protected by Deathwing Command Squads. Azrael is a pretty common sight to provide a better invuln to Terminator squads, extra CP and some protection for other shooting tools.

Dark Angels Ravenwing

A bit rarer than it once was, but Ravenwing handing out free 5+ invulnerable saves to already decent units makes them pretty efficient, and if you go heavy on them the Death on the Wind secondary becomes very reliable and powerful. These lists tend to pack lots of Attack Bikes and at least a couple of Dark Talons, providing a powerful early alpha strike to strip away the opponent’s best weaponry, then use the shooting of Talonmasters and ObSec bikes to lock up the game.

Ultramarine Successor Alpha Strike

Ultramarines have some very powerful tools to enable a strong alpha strike, and lists utilising these alongside the Master Artisan/Whirlwind of Rage Successor Chapter Tactic have been very successful. Most notably, the Seal of Oath gives them a pretty much locked-in tool for destroying one of an opponent’s most powerful tools, and the ability to deploy Invictor Tactical Warsuits hyper-aggressively then pull them back if the roll-off is lost allows the army to present huge turn 1 pressure at minimal risk. Once the game is joined, the superdoctrine keeps Devastators and Suppressors mobile on turns two and three, and if the opponent tries to charge the gunline they’ll find themselves hit with a multi-overwatch fusilade.

White Scars

In pre-codex 9th Edition White Scars were probably the single best army in the game – the combination of the speed provided to them by their Chapter Tactic with deadly melee threats and ranged units out of the old Marine codex made them an absolute nightmare to deal with early on, and the incredible late game boost that their Superdoctrine provides was usually enough to seal the deal.

Some of their top units have taken some fairly hefty nerfs over time, their synergies with the 9th book are a little less good, and 9th is less melee focused than it was early on, but the core White Scars plan of going fast and brawling the opponent out of the game is still a valid one, and they provide strong support for Devastators, one of the best Marine shooting units, via Hunter’s Fusilade, which lets them pull off an accurate volley after leaping out of a Rhino. This allows you to ration out a couple of units over multiple turns rather than going all-in with a drop pod, which adds flexibility, while Advance/Charge VanVets that jump to D2 late game are still exceptionally strong.

Almost all lists will be running a couple of big VanVet blocks and a double Devastator Rhino, and from there other popular choices include Volkite Contemptors to pop Raiders and Bladeguard for general purpose board control and murderising. Scars do also have some strong character options, with Kor’sarro being pretty popular, and various models carrying around either Plume of the Plainsrunner also frequently seen.

Blood Angels Jump Pack Spam

Blood Angels do one thing well, which is put down walls of angry men with jump packs to rip opponents to shreds. Sanguinary Guard and Death Company both provide some unique tricks (6″ heroics with Unbridled Ardour from the former, pre-game move with Forlord Fury from the latter), and being able to fly around a Chief Apothecary Sanguinary Priest with the Guard is very valuable. As well as that, Angel’s Sacrifice provides a powerful, unique tool to mess with the flow of combat for profit, and you’ve got a few other cool herohammer combos you can set up if you’re so inclined. Lacking any real shooting buffs is a major strike against them right now, but experienced players are still managing to make melee-themed builds do some work.

Adeptus Custodes

Shadowkeepers

Successful Custodes lists cluster around one build, but it’s a strong one. Shadowkeepers handing an extra defensive stratagem to an army that already has plenty gives them a critical mass of tools to keep their units on the table, vital for an army with a low model count. Those tools almost always comprise Trajann, a Bike Captain, 3×3 troops (either shield Custodians, Sagitarrum or a mix), a Venatari bomb and a Telemon, filled to taste with more of the above or a few other things. You also sometimes see Trajann swapped for a second Bike Captain for extra mobility.

Hyper aggressive builds packing large numbers of Repentia, Sacresants and Zephyrim (often given ObSec by a Dogmata and fired at the enemy) to handle melee punch and a few units of Retributors backed by Morvenn Vahl to burst down key targets at range. Celestine is also a staple, providing an extra threat and some positional trickery via the ability to bodyguard her high-footprint unit with Sacresants.

Orks

Mech Orks

Orks love getting into the opponents face and krumpin’ them, and the Ork Codex gives them some pretty decent tools to do just that, most notably Trukk Boyz and the supreme power of the Kill Rig ferrying Beast Snagga Boyz around. Add in great utility infantry units for scoring secondaries and various ways to build powerful herohammer champions and you can craft a list that can body the opponent hard and fast enough, while scoring reliably enough itself, to run away with the game.

Chaos Space Marines

Iron Warrior Daemon Engines

Chaos Space Marines have a few cool tricks up their sleeves, and one of them is definitely the Daemonsmith warlord trait out of Iron Warriors. Daemon Engines are some of the best datasheets that Chaos have access to, and piling on extra hits to their shooting (along with the other cool toys Iron Warriors bring like healing) gets them over the line to where they’re genuinely pretty good. You usually see a Master of Possession for Cursed Earth (improves invulns for Daemon Engines) and infernal Power (RR1s) carrying the trait around along with a Lord Discordant with the powerful Insidium buff leading things up. In terms of the Engines themselves, Decimators are very popular and the Lord of Skulls is a genuine player, but almost all of them are at least fine. More recently, this has been seen as a soup list with Death Guard for a Terminator brick wall to significant success.

Emperor’s Children

The Emperor’s Children stratagem sheet in Faith and Fury/Book of Fire is wildly better than all the others, with powerful buffs for shooting and melee and one of the best charge reliability stratagems in the game. Honour the Prince lets you change a dice in a charge roll to a 6, which takes your charge percentages out of deep strike sky high. That’s great with lightning claw Terminators, who are a pretty decent unit on rate anyway and also want to be Slaanesh for Endless Cacophony, so lists built around lots of these plus a unit of Noise Marines in a Dreadclaw for Discordant Frequencies are a pretty potent prospect compared to the rest of what the (non-Iron Warriors) faction has to offer.

Death Guard

Inexorable

Death Guard have some great units, and that allows lots of different spins on how they’re used to succeed, but the most common are definitely those leveraging the Inexorable Plague Company. These build an anvil of Deathshroud Terminators protecting Plagueburst Crawlers and Volkite Contemptors (who love the Ferric Blight of this company, though it’s not mandatory), and dare the enemy to either ignore it and get ground out by the shooting, or charge in and risk getting sliced into tiny pieces once slowed by the Revolting Stench Vats of an omni-present BlightspawnA Tallyman with Tollkeeper is also a very common sight to boost the Volkite Contemptors.

Mortarion’s Anvil

Do you know what’s great? Death Guard Terminators. Do you know what’s even better? Death Guard Terminators your opponent can’t re-roll against thanks to the Gloaming Bloat and that can heroic with Relaptic Assault (unless Typhus has come to play, which is at least somewhat common in these builds). Mortarion’s Anvil has continuously vied with the Inexorable for most common Plague Company, and while there tends to be quite a bit of overlap in the tools they field, the Anvil generally bring slightly fewer shooty tools and slightly more Terminators, and often sport a Daemon Prince to take advantage of the powerful Warp Insect Hive relic.

Blightlord Bomb

Take many of the same tools that make the Inexorable list great but cuts down on some of them to free up points for a big unit of Blightlords, providing an extremely hard to shift core that’s also pretty versatile in the field of murder. Cloud of Flies can give some clutch protection, and this flavour also sometimes runs as Mortarion’s Anvil to unlock Relaptic Assault to make them harder to avoid. With Cloud of Flies as a part of the plan, Poxwalkers to gum up the board and get in the opponent’s face are particularly important.

Thousand Sons

Cult of Duplicity

The Cult of Duplicity are first out of the gate as a clearly identifiable and successful archetype out of the Thousand Sons book. The reason isn’t especially complicated – Rubricae and Scarab Occult Terminators both absolutely rule in the new book, and being able to teleport them around the board with Sorcerous Facade on demand provides some exceptional board control and objective play capability. Running tandem with the Umbralific Crystal and Temporal Surge also lets the lists throw some big punches out of the gate, and Master Misinformator is a potent optional addition to help them adapt at game start.

Duplicity/Time Pressure

After a bit of refinement, this combination is starting to look like the Thousand Sons list to beat. The combination of a big Time Scarab unit using the Umbralefic Crystal, Duplicity Warpflamer Rubricae using Risen Rubricae and Master Misinformator to adapt pre-game and lots of Spawn provides a truly nightmarish amount of pressure out of the gate, putting the opponent on the back foot, pulling ahead on primary and allowing the attrition tools that back the rest of this up to grind the opponent into dust.

Grey Knights

Dreadknights and Interceptors

Dreadknights of both the Grand Master and regular flavours are exceptionally strong all-rounder units, able to deal great damage at range and in melee and pretty hard to shift thanks to a 2+/4+ invulnerable, creating a very strong army core that puts the opponent under pressure fast thanks to multiple ways to redeploy them. Meanwhile, Interceptors are exceptionally vast and very deadly infantry who can quickly take control of the board and rack up secondary points. Put these two together and you have an extremely powerful list, especially with access to Foretelling of Locus for pre-game flexibility. The army is usually run with most of the Dreadknights as Swordbearers, then the Interceptors and a second Grand Master Dreadknight as either Blades of Victory or Rapiers. The Blades of Victory flavour usually moves the third regular Dreadknight to the BoV detachment to allow it to be an eligible target for the Vanguard Aggression warlord trait, which gives the list even more options to confound or cruch the opponent early, while the Rapier list allows its infantry to punch up in an emergency.

Harlequins

Bikes and Boats

One of the few archetypes from right at the start of 9th that’s still just about holding on, lists featuring a swarm of tooled up troupes riding around in starweavers blowing things up with fusion pistols and backed up by some nasty characters and (optionally) one big bike squad for Prismatic Blur can still do a number on opponents who don’t have the right tools to deal with it.

Aeldari

Harlequins and Artillery

The Craftworld codex is extremely dated at this point, but their heavy support section holds up, with Tempest Launcher Dark Reapers, Shadow Weavers and Night Spinners all being valid ways to chip away at opponents over the course of the game. These make a strong backup for a cut down Soaring Spite contingent to dominate the mid board, helping reach out and pick off small units that you can’t affort to send a clown car after, and pressure the opponent into committing to positions where they’re vulnerable.

Tyranids

Kronos and Kraken

The one true Tyranid list right now. A Kraken Swarmlord, usually with a unit of Genestealers (and optionally some other big nasties) riding shotgun, provides fast pressure and some janky combat tricks to keep the enemy locked down. While that’s being dealt with, a Kronos Hive Guard unit using Single Minded Annihilation to double shoot and an Exocrine taking full advantage of Symbiostorm grind the enemy down. The true glory days of this build are past, but it still works and it’s the best thing that nids can put on the table.

Necrons

Eternal Expansionist Swarm

Being able to get army-wide ObSec from the Eternal Conquerors Dynastic Code, comboed with a pre-game move from Relentlessly Expansionist, gives Necrons their biggest unique asset right now, letting them dominate Primary scoring to a ridiculous degree. There are broadly three directions this can be taken, the first of which is just to pack in as many wounds with the trait as possible, using a tonne of Scarab Swarms, Wraiths and Lychguard to bog the enemy down on objectives for long enough to claim the game for the Necrons.

Eternal Expansionist Destroyers

The swarm builds of Eternal Expansionists can sometimes crumble in the face of armies that present high melee threat, so some spins on it cut down the sheer number of bodies in favour of some that can actually do some killing, usually Skorpekh Destroyers. These are often backed up by Lokhust Heavy Destroyers at the back, providing a mixture of objective control and some ranged spike damage.
