Tactically, the army uses the Bolster Defenses to support the Thunderfire Cannons and the Sniper Squad, which is typically combat squadded to provide better battlefield coverage. Three teams of bikes lead the army as well as three squadrons of Speeders; Firepower in the middle, close support on the flanks.

TURN 1: When first turn pops, two drop pods with Ironclads split the army into thirds, negating support fire across the line of deployment until the drop pods are destroyed, allowing the firepower of the army to be focused during the first turn.

TURN 2-3 Afterwards, the army diverges and the fast-moving vehicles and bikes pressure what remains of the enemy flanks until nothing remains, with Thunderfires and Snipers picking off hordes and Monsterous Creatures that escaped the initial barrage.

TURN 3-5 Typically, the winner is already decided. But, if the enemy proves more resilient than expected, one last drop pod hits ground; Vulkan He'stan and six Sternguard Veterans, ready to claim victory and any artifacts the enemy posseses. Using meltabeams and holy promethium, the Emperor's foes will be purged in bloody fashion.


How well do you thing it will fare, T-O?
"I have exactly one-hundred men under my command counting on ME to lead that charge, you two-bit mechanic. I have five seige tanks, eight APC's, an artillery platform and a light mech that need resupply and repair by dusk. I need remote mines set, trenches dug, and my men fed and rested, or those Marines are going to be using us for toothpicks. Get it done, Fio'vre." Officer Sherwin Jackson, 13th Dal'yth Company, to Fio'vre D'nan

"Feed well, my Bretheren. You are what you eat, and we have devoured the mighty." Master Shaper Korl Muur
