there is a small tournament soon here and since I had so much success with the List of Doom (3 x LR, 1 BC + Incinerator + Psychic Hood, 3 units of 7 PAGK + Incinerator) of 1500 points I thought I should continue with it!
But this tourney is 1750 and I am torn between the options of filling these points.
Initially I thought, why not another unit of PAGK... another troop on the table and a strong one at that. On the other hand this is nor fluffy (everything else tides in transports) and I believe ALL the infantry fire will go for this unit since apart from AT nothing can harm the LRs and their precious cargo... hence despite the cover I would provide I still fear for their safety against a torrent of fire.
Second option would be to upgrade BC to GM so that he has those precious 3 wounds (rolling a -1- from a normal wound is still haunting me with the BCs one wound). With the rest of the points one 5 man IST squad with 2 plasmaguns in a rhino.
Third option is 2 of the above... 5 x IST, 1 unit with Plasma guns the other with meltaguns tucked inside a rhino with smokes and extra armor.
I am kinda more partial with this last option... it helps leave someone back to defend objectives and a unit that can put 4 MEQ killing shots if necessary to weaken someone who is coming close too fast. The IST's dont even need to get outside the transport.
On the other hand rhinos will attract alot of fire in Killpoint missions since they will be the easy prey to take out.
By the way, the melta totting squad stays back to tackle with any fast-skimmy thingies that come in fast and try to contest objectives... happened last time in a game I played and it was horrible... so if he does it again, he says hello to my little friends!
Overall I am asking for advice and ideas on what you think are pros and cons of above builds but also feel free to mention any of your ideas on how you would go about adding these 250.
Bah, things were so nice and simple in the good 'ol 1500...
What was your original list again? Maybe a brief overview or a link to your army list.
The thing about PAGKs is that all the anti-infantry fire in the world can be targetted at them but if the guns are more than 30" away the likelihood is they won't see them through the Shroud
I would go for option number 2 or 3 personally; you can't beat a Grandmaster, and the Rhinos might well draw a lot of AT fire, but at the end of the day so what? They're cheap and nasty. Upgrade them with delicious Codex-creeping DH smoke and use them as a screen for your LRs
