Default Space Vikings:IG

How bad would this army be using these doctrines?
Warrior Weapons
Sanctioned Psykers
Hardened Fighters
Carapace Armor
haven't decided for a fifth...suggestions?

I've made what looks to be a decent list but not sure...opinions?

BTW: I'm focusing on assault weapons and getting stuck in...

Get the Glory boys as troop choices then. They've got nasty things you can use...

Restricted Troops: Rough Riders. Either that, or Ogryns. You could totally Norse-out both of those, if you're doing a Viking IG army. I could just imagine all the conversions with Space Wolves + Fantasy Dwarves.....mm....

Rough Riders, for the fluff, and awesome marauder conversions!

Sanctioned psykers are always fun, but you're not going to have many men on the ground, with the hardened fighters AND carp. armour.

make sure you get the full 5 psykers, they're worth it to just bulk out on, and they're totally a laugh to play with.

Haha yeah you said it. Though in a viking army they'd be all jacked and like....Norse Mystic Shaman guys. Very cool.

by sanctioned psykers im guessing you mean the Pysker + Honorifica + Force weapon = oh my god, my carnifex! i'd go with rough riders, they are the only way to make a succesfull CC guard army. also, by carapace, do you mean plate mail? becuase i have a tendency of attacking people who claim plate mail = carapace, i dont care what drivel the codex says. anyways, enough of my grumblings. have you thought of fluff yet? if you haven't decided you could use the fluff i used for my CC army. they come from a feral world called norska(yes i know, very original) and are put together and sent to fight ork hordes to weed out the weak ones. the best of the warriors are then recruited as greyknights by the ordo malleus. this allows me to take stormtroopers with melta guns(inquisition sends in tank busters since all the norsemen have is laspistols and axes) and grey knight allies. this would explain all the sanctioned psyker warriors since greyknights are all psykers.

well actually rough riders is unrealitic because Vikings didn't really use vikings because they couldn't sail with them. But I'll consider them. Yes I'm using catachans/maruaders for troops, a giant for a basalisk and making longships on wheels for chimeras! Basically this is going to be a converting/fun gameplay army. working on fluff/lists now

Whoa. Longships on wheels?

Umm I'd just put idk, runes or sigils on your tanks....idk if I'd go as far as to make your tanks of wood + strap an axel onto them.

And yeah, sure the Vikings didn't use horses, that's more Mongol....but hell, it's an entire planet/system of guys we're talking about, chances are, if they're as feral as you're playing them out to be, they'll have some sort of cavalry.

And....a giant for a basilisk? Like...a Fantasy Giant? He'll have an AV? You've got a good thing going with these Norse/Viking Guardsmen, but I think that's a little pushing it. Remember, you're playing Guard...they still use tanks. Make them as Norse as you want, go to town with the Space Wolf and Fantasy conversions....but just stay in the year 40k. Otherwise I'd say that my Hell Hounds always inflict a Pen. on a 2+ against your Ships on wheels.
