    This popped out of my head as an idea for a "stormtrooper" force that wouldn't get absolutely raped too badly. Might be fun to play with against marines, as suddenly all of their AP5 bolters become half as effective and get vaped by BS4 plasma in return. The low number of heavy weapons might be a problem though...

    Seems like a nice idea and you still have around 60 troops which isn&#39;t too bad.

    However to give your hardened veterans Carapace armour you need to have it included in your doctrines list, i suggest dropping Sharpshooters for now as your HQ has no attachments.

    Also get some heavy bolters or autocanons for horde killing, i suggest dropping a sentinel to do this, and place them in your stormtrooper squads.

    Overall seems like a great idea

    Oh, bah, typo on my part. I originally copied from the wrong list.

    Last I read stormtrooper squads can&#39;t have heavy weapon teams, which is why I have 4 sentinels. Maybe swap the two multilaser sentinels for a heavy bolter team?

    Aaaahh sry yes didn&#39;t see that Stormies can&#39;t have heavy weapons.

    But still to add firepower i would change one lascannon sentinel to Auto canon or multilaser to get a fwe more shots off.

    You could get 1 more heavy weapon in my placing one in the Command Platoon?

    I want at least 4 lascannons in my army (scared of tanks). Another vet squad would be too expensive, and lascannons on sentinels are cheapest ones you can get (only +20 instead of the +25 everywhere else).

    And yeah, I guess I could put a heavy weapon in my command squad. They&#39;d be more exposed, but I guess that&#39;s what carapace armor is for.

    Might be wrong, But thought that with the Grenadiers doctrine, you could only have 0-2 Stormtrooper squads as Troops choices.

    It&#39;s 0-3. And i would suggest you figgure out a way to work voxcasters and a master vox in to your list. Moral becomes a lot more important in one moth&#33;
