Guard & raven guard: a new take after chapter approved
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:16:52 AM »
After a few months out, I'm wading back into the carnage! I've bought a few models that can be converted to rough riders. I have about 50% of my list below, but don't know what I should do with the heavy support slots. Basically, I'm asking what heavy support choices would go well with this. I have about 1142 points to spend on heavy support choices or whatever I need to take out armored targets. What units do good job of that these days?

On the guard side, I can field at least one of any heavy support choice, but no more than 2 of any.
On the marine side, I own at least one of everything but centurions, but the only thing I have lots of is devastator marines.

So without further ado, the list so far!

Mordion Brigade

Company commander, power fist, boltgun
Company commander, boltgun (Warlord, kurov's Aquila)
Company commander, boltgun (maybe the dagger relic)
Infantry squad, boltgun, plasma gun
Infantry squad, boltgun, plasma gun
Infantry squad, boltgun, plasma gun
Infantry squad, boltgun
Infantry squad, boltgun
Infantry squad
Special weapon squad, 2 plasma guns, demolition charge
Command squad, 4 plasma guns
Astropath
Rough riders, 2 plasma guns
Rough riders, 2 plasma guns
Scout sentinel, autocannon
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT
Valkyrie, lascannon, multiple rocket pods


Space marine (raven guard?) battalion detachment:

Captain, storm bolter (teeth of terra upgrade, 1 CP)
Lieutenant, storm bolter, power sword
Scout squad, bolters
Scout squad, bolters
Scout squad, bolters, heavy bolter
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT
UNKNOWN HEAVY SUPPORT

vs. gunlines:
Valkyrie delivers special units up close to target characters with the Mordion order and plasma, then the power fisted company commander leads a suicidal charge! Scouts blitz. Rough riders work the flanks. Infantry squads bring up the rear and wipe out light infantry.

vs. blitz lists:
Valkyrie delivers as above, scouts and infantry can bubble wrap and take out enemy hordes.
