Default Re: Trying Something Different: Dredbash Mek List (1500)

I think 1 trukk is fine, but 1 deffkopta isnt really going to do much. Its like having 3 nobz in a footslogging squad, you just shouldnt do it their strength lies in numbers.

Take the trukk, but make it more durable. Armour plates and grot riggers means that it will keep on moving until it gets blown out of the sky.

Why give shoota boyz a nob with a power klaw? would you give a devastator squad sergeant a power fist? think about the roles they play, and do you really need it. Its alot of points into something you wont use.

What is your mek doing? im guessing hangin with the shoota boyz, which will be more like footsloggers. Trust me, with slugga boyz you can run instead of shootin, and you get to the enemy a turn faster (so more men to attack with) and each slugga boy gets an extra attack EACH so thats 30 attacks your missing out on. If you want shoota boyz take them in more smaller squads, say up to 16. Then you can park them on objectives and lay down fire support for your nobz.

For the kans, i can see why you took rokkits. Nothing else has AT apart from power klaws. This is where your list will let you down. Killa kans are for taking grotzookas. Try them...i wasnt too keen, but wow do they make an impact. They even murder terminators when you reign down 2 blasts a model. Imagine taking 9 kans with that. 18 S6 blast templates a turn.

I would consider dropping a loota squad for some tankbustas. That will provide you with more AT firepower. BY all means keep rokkits on 1 or even 2 squads of kans, but grotzookas will help you much more in most situations, apart from vehicles.

For help and assistance, i suggest you read my tankbusta tactica here

That will help you know what squad is right for you. Build the squad to the role, not the role to the squad.

Hope this helps
