Post by: thrst77 on December 13, 2016, 01:03:19 PM
Hey guys after finishing my SM army I thought maybe a new play style would be cool while also staying in the emperor's light. So I started looking around and have made a basic list. Tell me what you think, I am going for a blob with some tanks because who doesn't want tanks?

30pts

Troops

Heavy weapons squad
 - 3x autocannon
75pts

Infantry platoon

Heavy weapons teams usually end up pretty lackluster in terms of firepower however autocannons are indeed the best option if you want to take them.  I would swap them out in addition to the conscripts for another wyvern or 2 as they are some of the most brutal anti-infantry tanks in the game and could take out pretty much anything infantry wise. As for leman russ variants, the standard battle tank is very good. Some things to consider adding to the list would be basilisks and demolishers although they are very expensive points wise so in 1000 points you will likely only be able to find points for 1 however they pack a punch and those medium points levels can do some serious damage (especially the demolisher).

Less so with the basilisk because of it's minimum range in medium engagements. Just sayin' ;) (imo)

It only has minimum range for indirect fire, if it can see the target it doesn't apply!

ohh... well then grab 'em all!
You will have to protect them, probably with the conscripts due to their high price, but they will be devastating against marines.
