Nice balanced list. The only thing I can see wrong with the list is that the Lemun Russes don't have extra armour, this upgrade is worth the points on all your tanks..

looks good. Certainly worth a try.

Chupathingy:
Extra armour wont fit into the list.... see the 1000 point limit?

Koggol:
The only thing i dont like is the ML on the armoured fist squad.... other wose completely fine!
If you took it out you may be able to fit in the extra armour however.

What would you suggest to do with the missle launcher? just drop the entire heavy weapon? I was kind of hoping to deploy the armoured fist squad on a board edge and rush up a side to draw enemy fire/forces and be able to pop any rear armor coming across the board while giving the plasma a nice firelane of the middle for any footsloggers.

Considering the relative instability of Plasma, I'd suggest swapping some for Meltaguns or Grenade Launchers.

He might mean the multilaser on the chimera, as the heavy bolter might prove better, since you standard squads can all take down light - mid tanks, and horde control is lower. I've never been a fan of laspistol/CCW sarges, I prefer the extra shots of a lasgun.

If you need points, consider pulling the heavy bolter sponsons off one leman russ, and changing the lascannon for a HB on another. That will pay extra armour on the Russes, hellhound and chimera if you're so inclined, and also consider dropping the platoon commander's storm bolter for a plain bolter and giving the chimera smokes. (Drop it off the PLATOON commander, as he has lower BS then the HQ commander).

Don't consider me an oracle, just a few opinions.

Personally, I like gun-toting Armoured Fists. They aren't assault units, so don't use them as one. Giving them Heavy Weapons lets them lay down heavy firepower, and simply move onto an objective once all the enemy are dead and broken...

With Leman Russes you should just have the battle cannon and the mandatory gun. also I would consildate your missle launchers into a heavy weapon squad.

Otherwisae that is a good balanced list. Opposite of mine but good. No doctrines?

I think you have to buy a Senior Officer for the HQ command squad. I could be wrong though, I'll check it out tonight.

That would throw your points off a little bit though.

I think you're wrong...


Anyway, I'd drop the sponsons off of both tanks, and possibly change the sentinel into another hellhound. If the points aren't there, I'd cut the ML from the armored fist squad and maybe the SBs from the officers (as much as I love those, I have 3!)

Or, I'd drop the sentinel to upgrade one tank to a demolisher and the heavy bolter squad to an autocannon squad, and take extra armor on the tanks if there are points left, starting with the demolisher, as it will get more from being able to move than the russ will.

Doctrines aren't really necessary, we did fine without them for ages.

The problem I have with the sentinel is there's only one. It's like giving free victory points to the enemy. If you're going to take sentinels, take LOTS. 1-3 is no good.
