I like the army overall. I like the theme. But as you've taken a close combat librarian i personally would have given his command squad ccw's and bp's, dropped the plasguns and given them furious charge instead. Again that's just my opinion tho. Good luck with your list

Don't they get ccw's & bp's for free? If that so then they've got them.

Yeah but they're not standard, they're a free option. And the furious charge will heighten there strength and initiative on the charge, combine that with the librarian's powers and that is one awesome close combat machine!

OK, I've changed the list to include furious charge and the ccw's and Bolt pistols.

Hey, don't just listen to my opinion. It's your list! Try it either way and let us all know how you get on, and good luck!
