Default BT List. C & C please.

As I am finishing up my Tau, I bought a few BT boxed sets. so I was drawing up an Army list at 1000 points. Please feel free to comment.

List 1.

Emp Champ.
-Cheapest Vow

Crusader Squad
-10 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 6x CC
-5 Neophytes -all CC
-LRC - smoke

Crusader Squad
-9 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 5x CC
-Rhino - smoke - extra armor

2x Land speeder Tornado -Assault cannons and HB

Total equals 999

List 2.

Castellan -Combi Melta, frags,bolt pistol, power weapon, terminator honuors,

Emp Champ.
-Cheapest Vow

Crusader Squad
-9 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 5x CC
-Rhino - smoke - extra armor

Crusader Squad
-9 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 5x CC
-Rhino - smoke - extra armor

Crusader Squad
-6 Initates -plasma gun - HB - 4x bolters

Land speeder Tornado -Assault cannons and HB

Predator Ann. - HB - extra armor - smoke

Total equals 998


I am leaning more towards list one. I love the LRC model model count wise they are about the same. on the other hand list 2 is more balanced.

As much as I love them, LRC's are not really for 1k games. Also, (and feel free to correct me,) but the EC does not take up a slot in the HQ slot on the Force Organization chart. (see page 31 of the BT Codex.)

That being said, I like List 1 better. It just needs a commander (may I suggest a Chaplain?)

Hey Feeple,

I thought the emp champ counted as HQ choice. but does not take up a slot....

Chaplain is always a goo choice but I feel its needlessly expensive..

Do you feel that the list 1 lacks anti -tank? as 1k games tend to have 1-2 tanks in them.

This is just my reading of the 'dex, but it says he's in HQ, but doesn't take up a slot. So, you still need to fill one HQ slot. This is just my interpretation, and if it's been errata'd, I'd love to be wrong.

As for anti-tank, not at all! 2 Meltaguns, 2 Powerfists can make a lot of tanks pause. the only think to make this more tank buster-y would be to exchange the HB on the Landspeeder for a (you guessed it) Meltagun.

how about the following?

Emp Champ.
-Cheapest Vow

Castellan
-bolt pistol, power weapon

Crusader Squad
-9 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 6x CC
-5 Neophytes -all CC
-LRC - smoke

Crusader Squad
-9 Initates -melta gun - Power fist - 2x bolters - 5x CC
-Rhino - smoke - extra armor

Land speeder Tornado -Assault cannons and HB

Land speeder - multi melta

I don't have my dex with me but maybe like the above minus some neophytes, and initates to fit the castellan. If i need to fill a HQ slot.

I do have my dex, and it's lunchtime for me! ;D

I came up wtih 1025 points there. Sack a couple of the Neophytes, and maybe take Blessed Hull for the LRC for an even 1k.
