Default Re: Fire-Power Force - Changes[?] - [1000 Points];

Heya,

Well, for one thing, I would drop the Dreadnought & the Scouts. Instead, I would insert two Elite Veteran squads. Each with a tank hunting lascannon (6 man team) for 123 points each. Maybe figure things around the list a bit to make things fit. But the Str10 lascannons will help poor rolls still make destruction happen. That allows your other lascannons to follow priority as normal. While the Tornados are wonderful, they're also facing down upwards of 6 autocannons. Unless your opponent just ignores them, they're doomed from the start. Overall, with 6 lascannons, you should be able to munch his Obliterators and Vindicator first turn. Your predator should be able to take care of a transport on it's own (rhino). You'll have to spread out and suffer the Bassy, but a deep striking Multi-melta Speeder should be able to knock out a Bassy on turn two if you're a bit lucky.

Really, as bad as it may sound, I would drop all armor from your list. I would just take marines, with lascannons. Use veteran skills & traits to get the marines to work as you need, and just toast the hard stuff off the board. Then when you don't need lascannons, start walking.

I say that as an IW player. People think you can't claim objectives, but if all it takes is a turn or two to totally cripple an opponent due to sheer volume of critical firepower, you then still have 4 turns of walking to do what you need. That's more than enough for the majority of missions. Only one mission will be near impossible (capturing deployment zones).

Against horde armies, the Speeders will play a better role, but currently, they're taking up points that marines would fill better probably in terms of firepower. I would separate into two different lists. One for MEQ and one for GEQ. At 1,000 points, especially when facing people who take tooled Lords, Oblits and duo-ordance tanks in 1k, it's not a poor choice.

Cheers!
