    Well you can mix the tanith and catachans(why anyone buys the ugly plastics i dont know) just have they in seperate squads with similar paint schemes. At 1500 I would consider losing the basilisk and getting ONE leman russ with HB sponsons. and No Chimera and 3 Orgyns. you should max out the heavy weapons and I find Autocannons and Heavy bolters more effective as we IG miss so bad

    I always say that one tank for every 500 points is acceptable.
    For once, I agree with CommanderCameron on maxing out your heavy weapons. Take about 3 lascannons and then make the rest of your heavies Autocannons or Heavy Bolters. You need all the extra shooting they get just to hit something every once in a while. Sharpshooter doctrine really helps out too.
    Oh yeah, I have catachans and some Tanith too. I thik that it&#39;s a great looking army. It usually comes down to how well you can model and paint as per how well an army looks.
