I plan on starting a Vostroyan army in the near future and have a few questions.
What are their Doctines?
Just by looking at the models I know of Carapace Armor, Sharpshooters, Veterans, and Special Weapons Squads. From the fluff I've read I can see them taking Die-Hards and Iron Discipline. Anything I'm missing? I know its 6, but the fluuf n the back of the codex has some armies with up to 7 doctrines.
What are the Vostroyan's preffered weapons?
I also have a few general questions.
Would it be more cost effective to only take Sharpshooters on support squads? Seeing how thay have 3x heavy weapons compared to a single trrop unit's one.
Since I'd be giving the support squads Sharpshooters, should I leave my Veterans a closer roll? Infiltrating plasma guns sound fun. The increased BS will help when it counts and since they infiltrate, I might want to leave the heavy weapons elsewhere.
The Vostroyan doctrines are here:
But those suck. Really, take sharpshooters, Carapace if you want it (cameleoline otherwise) and fill out the others as you see fit.
Vostroyan preferred weapons are Plas and HBolter.
Also, you can't take 6 doctrines unless you're using one of the regiments from the back of the book.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
I'm not a big fan of the Doctrines either so I don't bother using the Vostroyan doctrines . But I do have a 1,500 pt army of them and I absolutely love the models, especially the officers!! Also the Atilan Rough Riders go great with them!! And for fluffiness I am including a radical DH inquisitor into my 1,750 list named Rasputin. I'd say defiantly pick em up!
hmmm I do have a bunch of Sisters of battle laying around... haha good thinking and historically correct!
Kudos on that one!
