    While I'm here, I just wondered whetehr anyone would have any objection to me basing my company on a German WWII Blitzkreig tank company. I'm not a Nazi myself, but would hate to get to my Games Workshop with a beautifully painted Armoured Company and no-one play me because of the theme.

    Thoughts please.

    That, my friend, is a terrifying list. Most armies (at least in a tournament setting where they're not geared towards specific armies) have no where near enough heavy weapons to take this list apart! Hell, my army (DH) would be hard pressed to take out two of those by the end of the game!

    As for the German thing, go for it. It's not like you're shouting hate messages or anything, just modeling your tanks after existing tanks. You seen the Armageddon pattern Bassie on the Forgeworld site? It's basically WWII-esque, and everyone's raving about it, so I don't see why you shouldn't do the same.

    Beware the dark eldar and tyranid players with lists consisting of 30+ dark lances or three carnifexes.

    If I were you, then I would look for a way to put in an Exterminator or two for non power armor armies.

    These, with tank aces or such, will chew apart low armor armies.

    Good point. However, if I take a few exterminators, then that leaves a couple of tanks almost useless against armies in power armour. If I take good old fashioned Russ&#39;s however, I can take out hordes of marines and still have a relatively good chance against horde armies such as &#39;nids.

    For example, Vs gaunts:
    An ordnance template usually covers five models or so. In most cases, all of the gaunts, if not all but one will die.

    Let&#39;s say 5 dead.

    If an exterminator was firing:
    9 heavy bolter shots- 4.5 (rounded to 5) will hit on average.
    2 autocannon shots- Usually both hit due to it&#39;s twin linked ability.

    On average, all but one will wound and kill.

    Thus, 6 are dead.


    For this slight difference in kill rates, compared to a much larger one when facing power armoured foes, I have to stick with the good old fashioned Russ&#39;s.

    Any objections from anyone about the Nazi theme (as I would like to gather how many people out of X replies object)?

    though swap one of the vanquisher for the exterminator varient and then the doctrine that enables you to re-roll any ones to hit

    this will make the tank hit on a 3 with all 1 beeing re-rolled

    and besides as long as you don&#39;t go and put a swastika on the tanks to one will even bother unless they are winers

    And what if I did? I take it that would cause offence and people would refuse to play me. Hmmm. Damn it&#33; I hat this politically correct world.....

    Well that&#39;s that outthe window. What is a blitzkreig without swastikas? What else (other than similar markings) distinguishes it from any other armourmed companies. Oh well....

    Any other advice on the list itself?

    Try a find a way to get Sponson heavy bolters onto your tanks, the number of shot you can get out of these (6 + 3 for hull) is sometimes better than the Pie-Plate, this also means you won&#39;t need exterminators for against hordes. You could also add heavy stubbers for 12 shots at 36" or less.
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    You can always use an iron cross in place of the swastika.

    I don&#39;t have the AC list on hand, but I think you can take anti-tank shells or something like that on a normal russ for cheaper than a vanquisher but with the same +2D6 as a vanquisher cannon. If you can skimp on some points that way, maybe also try to squeeze in an extra hellhound and swap a demolisher for a basilisk (the more templates the better).
