__________________________________________________ _________________________

I thought I'd finalise my 1500 point list before I started buying the army. What do you think? any suggestions?. I want a 17-1800 British style army going on. The Griffon will be horse drawn and all the Heavy Weapons will be wheeled etc.

I have Close Order Drill on all my squads, thatís why 2 of my squad sarges from Platoon 1 have Shotguns. I plan to lay out Platoon 1 in a two lined formation. The Shotgun Sarg squads out front, when the enemy gets close the Remnant squad, 2 Shotgun squads and the Command squad will charge, all getting into Close Order. The rear squads can either advance behind them and rapid-fire or they can remain stationary and use their Autocannons.

The Griffons with Infernus Shells are there to push back advancing enemy troops to allow the rest of my force more time to fire.

The cavalry are obviously my main counter-charge units.

B-e-a-utiful list there Veq. I love the Praetorians, i'd take them if i could afford it.

Only one or two additions i might make. I would (even though its mostly static) take a fire support/anti-tank squad in a chimera. Seems stupid? but if you zip it into a nice place in cover then you have some serious firepower where it shouldn't be. Aside from that, it's great.

Imp-ressive.

Highly fluffy, and I could see its usefulness on the battleboard.

Ah, so I do. Fixed.

'Only one or two additions i might make. I would (even though its mostly static) take a fire support/anti-tank squad in a chimera. Seems stupid? but if you zip it into a nice place in cover then you have some serious firepower where it shouldn't be.'

It would come in handy from a gaming standpoint but would totally compromise the fluff/feel of the list so I'll have to pass on that one.

MEQ's will be a big problem for this list to deal with. Hopefully the Infernus shells will be able to push them back long enough for my force to actually do some damage at range. The cavalry all have Hunting Lances pretty much just for MEQ slaying.

I like this army, Veq. It is just screaming to be used against a Hoard-army, Zulu style!

...Hmm, if I can proxy up a 1,500pt Ork army...

Default Re: 1500 Infantry, Static-Firepower Praetorian List:

Yeah. I had that in mind when I was making the list. It will be aweful against MEQ's but really fun to use against Orks [or Nids to a lesser extent].

The fluff about the world they are from is going to heavily feature Feral Orks.

'...Hmm, if I can proxy up a 1,500pt Ork army...'

I have a 1500 Ork army.... . Although I still do need to buy this army, may take me a few months with saving up for the greatest Metal festival in the world an all.
