I have been experimenting with a kind of mech guard, and it seems to do fairly well against my friend's Eldar and it won against 'Nids, but I'm lacking in Anti-Tank power, I need to kill AV14 more, and SM kill me as well. Any advice to get some more anti-tank? Also, should I get more troops in?
Here's the List:
JO with meltabombs
x3 veterans with plasma
x5 veterans with 3 melta
x3 squads of 10 grenadiers
Each squad has:
2 plasma guns
Chimera with Smoke, EA, Multilaser, and Hull HB
Inquisitorial ST's x10 with a rhino and 2 plasma guns
LRBT: hull Heavy Bolter, Heavy Bolter sponsons
Leman Russ Demolisher: hull Lascannon, Plasma Cannon sponsons
Basilisk: hull Heavy Bolter, indirect fire
TOTAL: 1493 points
On Warseer: Iracundus: "So you might end up with "renegade" Chapters, but more split due to ideology rather than because the big bogeyman of Chaos suddenly makes them all cackling mustache twirling villains."
Ok this will disagree with everything you have heard, but if you are serious about taking out the big 14 without changing your list entirely, try one meltagun and one plasma gun with your grenadiers.
All of your storm trooper units will be able to bust open tanks with ease because of the 2d6 you will get when within 6 inches. Most of their anti-tank will go at your leman russes while your chimeras get close enough to unload that one melta gun. The plus one on the vehicle damage table is vital, it gives you a 50% chance of destroying the tank if you penetrate.
At the end of the day its 3 shots instead of 4, having that one shot that could take out any vehicle is worth having one less shot that could take out more infantry.
