I'm looking for advice in building a 1000pt force from the "vanilla" codex. I wish my force to be balanced as much as possible, and I'm not interested in a "mounted" list.
1. I have enough pieces for 2 rhinos or 1 rhino/1 razorback.
2. I have two complete AoBR sets.
3. I have a slew of plastic to make tactical, devastator, and terminator squads.
4. I currently don't have any HQ models.
Thanks in advance.
In 5th edition mech is key, so devestator squads are pretty pointless when compared with other HS choices.
A chaplain is the most cost effective HQ.
I'd go something like this:
Tactical Squad (with Razorback, powerfist, missile launcher, flamer)
Tactical Squad (with Rhino, powerfist, multimelta, melta)
Terminator Squad (with CML)
Venerable Dreadnaught w/ Assault Cannon + Missile Launcher
I think that's a smidge under 1k.
Althought, I would probably pick up a librarian for an HQ and a regular rifleman dread (ML/Autocannon). Unless the Chaplain is with an assualt squad of some sorts (Terminators/Jump Packers).
An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded...
Nope, he rides in the RB.Does the chaplain slog with the terminators?It's very survivable, and has decent range.Why a venerable dread in a 1000pt list?
You could swap the chappy for a Lib with Null Zone and one other psychic power but then you have a HQ without an inv. save.
I tend to get confused when there are no numbers floating around ( ei. 10 man squad ).
Some things to think about, but I like the list so far.
I tend to field
a librarian, with The avenger and might of ancients,
2 10 man tactical squads with flamers and missile launchers, usually with rhinos but you said non-mounted
10 sternguard w/ plasmagun in a drop pod (librarian comes in with them)
1 Vindicator w/ siege shield
and with 20 points left i'd melta bomb up the sergeants
Mostly because its fun to play to be honest
WORSHIP THE VINDICATOR!!! (And a Drop Pod full of Combie-Melta Sternguard never hurts either)
