    The 500pt 10 Man Challenge

    I'm not sure that this is the right place to post this (looked through where I could and deemed it the most suitable).

    Anyway I came up w/a challenge for my friends and I for modeling and gaming purposes. Here are the rules.

    Take a unit of 10 (no more or less) from the Troops section of any codex. You have 500pts to spend on the entire cost of the unit and equipment. Now here's where it gets interesting: they are allowed to take any upgrade in the codex. So your tac squad members could all have relic blades etc. There is no limit on equipment that is unique as long as it is an upgrade for points somewhere in the codex. Each member of your 10 man squad can take any of said upgrades with the following limitations:
    1. No upgrade that adds models to the squad may be taken (servitors etc)
    2. On the flip side if there is an option to upgrade the "sergeant" of that squad then it may be taken.
    3. No vehicle upgrades.
    4. The points cost must be the most expensive version of that equipment (ie if it appears as "for free" in one squad and +10pts in another you need to pay 10pts for it)
    5. Every model may carry a single 2 handed weapon (heavy weapon, relic blade etc) 2 one handed weapons (pistol, cc weapon etc) and any amount of other equipment such as banners, bombs, grenades etc.

    No offense as well to the armies this effects but you may not take units that "count as troops" if a certain HQ is taken as this defeats the "troops only" point of the challenge. My friends and I have also stated that this squad is to be WYSIWYG to add to the fun.
    Well there's the rules. I look forward to seeing everyone's ideas.

    This would be fun, for the Orks. Random, but fun:

    10 Shoota Boyz:

    3 Shoota boyz w/cybork and combi-skorchas

    5 Shoota boyz w/Shokk Attakk Gunz and cybork

    1 Painboy w/cybork

    1 Nob w/powerklaw, bosspole, cybork, and combi-skorcha

    Oh it's completely random but that list looks great! My chaos friend has a unit of plague marines (can't remember weapon specifics) but he has 3 of them carrying icons of Tzeentch, Slaanesh and Khorne. My other friend has grots in mega armor.

    Good lord, that unit would trash ANYTHING in close combat.

    he did say no squad that counts as troops if a certain HQ is taken.

    So no Wyches.. sorry. Those would have to be warriors... far less effective, but the 2+ invulnerable would still rock

    How about 50 conscripts formed into 25 mortar squads. Then give them forward sentries so they all have camo-cloacks.
    It's only about 355 points but a squad like that wouldnt need anything more, just imagining having to fire 25 ordnance barrage weapons at once seems fun enough.

    10 Scouts all with artificer armour segeant with a thunder hammer and combi flamer 3 relic blades shotguns ( one of which with melta bombs) 3 storm sheilds shotguns and the remaining 3 flamers (most expensive in the upgrade for the assault squads) Oh and at this point I would like to point out the outflanking rule, and how well it works with 10 2+ save models with 3++ wound buffers 4 flame templates a couple relic blades and a thunder hammer

    @Eldarin your choice is illegal, the OP specifically noted 10 models no more, no less your choice is 25 models broken down into the mortar teams.
    Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
