    old IG player - Reloading

    Hi Team,

    old IG player- looking to dust off the LAZguns-

    is there a way to legally have IG drop troops-

    before with the docs- i was just able to rain IG troops like, well rain.

    other then taking ESp drop troops- is there a turnie legal or spech char, cheese head trickery i can employ with new rules.

    or is it time to adopt a new stragitum?

    all input is appreciated -

    -+the Emperor Protects+-

    S.D.

    The best you're going to get is an air-cav list. Vendettas, Veterans/CCS riding those Vendettas, an handful of deep-striking Stormtroopers. Completely one-dimensional, but legal.

    Another option is the Imperial armour vol8 book which has the full elysian drop troop army list updated to the new codex standard. It is legal but like all FW stuff you should ask opponents permission. I've never had a problem in pickup club games but most tournaments won't allow them.

    The Elysian list allows squads to deepstrike and you can take Valkyries as dedicated transports. the MM sentinel and Goliath demolition tank are also in there.

    Thanks for all your input; Madcat, Stradius.

    I have the armor book: and have actually played Ely drp trps, and modeled most the troops as so- full masked heads, torsos, arms from cadian, catachan legs, with space marine back packs
    - sounds silly but look in your bitz bin- instant elysian drop troops-

    now living overseas- tunnies will be the only time i really get a chance to play- so I was hunting for /idk/ maybe something I missed.

    - looks like stormies and Valkyries are how I will go then. And wouldn’t you know it, Valkyries are the only IG model I don’t have like mad reserves of.

    = now correct me if i'm wrong= and since were on the Valkyrie ship-

    Troops units can combine if in the same platoon.

    So I can mix x2 spcl wep teams (12 models) then assign them in same valkyrie?

    They can’t split up later as a unit correct?

    again- thanks for all the input- let’s see what I pull off this time.

    Sadly, it's one squad per transport, 12 models or less.

    Also, only infantry squads may combine. Heavy Weapons and Special weapons cannot (the platoon command cannot either)

    Sadly only infantry squads can combine. Can't combine PCS, SWS, or HWS at all.

    Correct, once combined, always combined.
