    new to ig, doing catachan-ish, 2000 pts... help please

    so with the new disappointing rules on the deathguard i realized i need a second army so im wanting to do a catachan themed army. (AS in im not using their doctrines)


    my doctrines with explanations:

    Close order drill (when they ambush they will have to jump out all at once and together)
    Drop troops (ambushes)
    Independent commissars... (there commissars walk around alone?)
    Light infantry....... (duh, i picked this over jungle fighters..... because i think jungle fighter rules . are seriously dumb.)
    conscripts (cause everyone needs cannon fodder)


    anyway here is the list.

    HQ-

    command platoon - 105
    heroic senior officer
    master vox, mortar


    Elites -

    Hardened vets - 80
    3 melta guns, drop troops

    commissars - 150
    2 commissars (1 laspistol and power weapon, 1 powerfist laspistol honorifica imperialis)


    troops -

    conscripts - 200

    infantry platoon - 360
    junior officer - 60
    vox, 2x melta gun

    squad - 75
    drop troops, meltagun, vox

    squad - 75

    Heavies -

    Leman russ - 160
    heavy bolters(all around), extra armor

    Earthshaker platform (imperial armor) - 75

    that is the list. drop troop in the drop troopers on juicy targets and shoot. thats the plan.

    it could work due to heavy numbers but againts MeQs i can see this becoming a game of attrition.
    but also the biggest factor would have to be.. Do you really want to paint that many models

    One thing real quick... Why the Honorifica on the Commisar? That addition actually lowers the leadership on your commisar. You could always take that off him and put it on one of your Infantry platoon leaders and ditch the vox. That way you get two good leadership bubbles and you don't have to pay out the rear for a commisar who doesn't lead like one.

    Hmm I think the only thing I'd suggest would be to drop the vox on your non-deepstriking squads, and put that HI on a Junior officer to get the extra bubbles. If you don't want to do that, you can always grab a banner or two so even with lower leadership you still get two chances at it.

    I have no idea how earthshaker platforms work, so I can't help you there. Other than that, keep us updated.
