    The fire support squad is illegal. It needs to be either as part fo a command or a heavy wepaons platoon. So you need to have a JO command at least in there. Id say use those points for some vets or stormies. Extra armour on the chimeras woudl also be a good idea.

    Hope that helps

    well, I got beaten to saying that...

    In 400pts. I'd advise using Grenadiers, lets you get cheap inantry with plasma weapons
    which then frees up a 260pt gap (2 squads of 5, 2 plasmaguns each = 140pts)

    with which to buy a half decent command squad. Something simple like a junior officer then a couple of special weapons squads or a sentinel squad

    I like your tactic but as the good commissar pointed out, is illegal, so either replace that with something similar (??) or change your list completely
    as that tactic wont work with only one chimera.

    Good man

    Its a nice tactic but its very narrow points to be pulling it off
    and I've never actually seen Guard try to pull it off, and I think they could. Stormies in chimeras like that would work great, but you'd never fit it into 400pts.

    I'm not a Stormie buff by the way, they are just very useful in small points costs or when u need cheap plasma/melta fire

    I'm looking forward to see what you can come up with now though

    Drop the pintles

    Give the vets special weapons. Make use of their superior BS.
    They inflitrate as well remember. Give them a couple of plasma weapons and between that and the autocannon can probably take any tank you'll come up against in that many points.


    Glad you stuck to the tactic though
    Let me know how that turns out as I like this list.

    you need 1 infantry platoon per armored fist squad and you need a hq choice. however this may not be the rules in your game place

    This list uses the 400 point combat patrol rules which require a single troops choice and remove the restrictions on the platoon mandatory choice.
