Default Team League Army List

I've signed up for a team league at my local Games Workshop. Here's a quick synopsis:

Each team consists of two players. Each player may not go above 1250 points (for a 2500 cumulative)
Each player must abide by the normal compulsory units; i.e. 1 HQ and 2 Troops
Each player may take up to 1 HQ, 1 Elite, 3 Troops, 1 Fast Attack, and 1 Heavy Support.
Each player may select an additional Elite, Fast Attack, or Heavy Support choice, but only one (i.e. 2 heavies). In addition, each player may not choose the same one (who are on the same team; so no having 4 heavies)

There are several other rules, but they are unimportant (special characters et al.).

I'm teaming up with with Imperial Guard, so they get the heavy slot.

Our basic strategy is have the IG provide fire support, softening the target before my army drops in. We'll be playing against Nids/Nids, 6 Dev Pink Marines/Marine Relics (RT models), Deathguard/Worldeaters, Tau/Saim Hann (goody goody gumdrops!), and one other that I cannot recall at the moment.

First game is next Wednesday, and I do not have to use the same list.

Without further ado, here's my pod list. I use Trust Your Battle Brothers, Cleanse and Purify, Eye to Eye, and Death Before Dishonour.

2 things. 1. you do not need to take a major and a minor disadvatage because you are only taking 2 advantages. 2. is it wise to have every single unit deep-striking. even though the IG are there to take the hits and dish out death they will have 2 armys to contend with for as long as you are out of the game ant that could be 2 turns or 5. i would leave 1 squad on the ground as a fire support squad, 6 marines- missle launcher, plasma gun, vet serg with power fist and bp, true grit and counter attack.........169pts. this leaves you an extra 60pts to play around with and will probably help you in the long run.

apart from that your army looks realy good and combine that with IG firepower you will make a meal of anything that comes in your way.

P.S. let us know how the cometition turns out

1: Yes, I do need to take a major and minor, since I took advantages from two different traits.
2: The speeders will be on the field.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll consider switching one over to a dev squad, on the ground of course.

should post up what your IG partner is going to play? It sounds like an interesting concept. I wonder if taking an assault squad to protect the IG infantry might be an option.

It all depends i guess on what he takes. This idea could work really good or really bad. The Tau/ Eldar and the Nids/Nids looks truely scary. If the Tau and Eldar guy are on the same page. OYYYYYYYY

Why not be hilariously cruel and have the Guard ally play a drop troops army?

Your team could be Death from above. Or even better that army could be "It's raining Men"

Anyways I digress,

I think having a full army (except for the speeders) off table leaving the guard to face two enemy armies all on their ownsome won't work. Basically the guard will probably lose half their army by the time you show up only to have all their power focused on you wiping out your marines.

I'd take at most half your army in pods and leave the rest on board as a firebase/counter attack units for the guard.

Or alternativley go with my first idea (i.e. Drop Troops)
