Dusted of my Valhallans the other day and am thinking about getting back into a few games of 40k after an extended break.
Looking at using this 1500pt list -
Doctrines - Close order drill, sharpshooters, light infantry, iron discipline, special weapons squads
Heroic Senior Officer w/ Plasma Pistol, Power Sword, Refractor Field, Frag Grenades, Iron Discipline
4 Guardsmen w/ Veteran (2), Standard Bearer, Medic, 2x Grenade Launchers
Mortar Support Squad w/ 3x Mortars
Fire Support Squad w/ 2x Heavy Bolters, 1x Autocannon, Sharpshooters
Anti-tank Support Squad w/ 3x Missile Launchers, Sharpshooters
Special Weapons Support Squad w/ 2x Sniper Rifles, Light Infantry
Commissar w/ Stormbolter, Power Fist, Refractor Field, Frag Grenades
Infantry Platoon (#1)
Junior Officer w/ Laspistol, Power Fist, Honorifica Imperialis, Iron Discipline
4 Guardsman w/ 2x Flamer, Light Infantry
2 Infantry Squads w/ Flamer, Vet Sgt, Light Infantry
Infantry Platoon (#2)
Junior Officer w/ Laspistol, Power Fist, Iron Discipline
4 Guardsman w/ 2x Plasma Gun, Light Infantry
2 Infantry Squads w/ 1x Plasma Gun, Vet Sgt, Light Infantry
Leman Russ Battle Tank w/ Hull-mounted Heavy Bolter
Basilisk w/ Indirect Fire
9 Hardened Veterans w/ 2x Grenade Launchers, 1x Plasma Gun
Hardened Veteran Sergeant w/ Bolt Pistol
Leaves 5 pts for some other piece of wargear or similar.
Or with some minor adjustments I can fit in a LR Demolisher in place of the Basilisk.
The list is mostly driven by the models I have, but I do have more infantry/heavy weapons/sentinels (x2)/pyskers/enginseer.
Thoughts and comments welcome.
I'd drop the fire support squad entirely, heavy bolters suck in 5th edition
whats the point in frag grenades on your commisar? he goes last anyway
drop the special weapons support squad, get a squad of ratlings and use normal ig models for the snipers, no one complains as far as long as ive played, but insted of getting 2 snipers with infiltrate at bs 3, you can get 6 with infiltrate at bs 4 for 1 extra point if you just use ratlings(no one cares if you use a ig sniper as a ratling honestly they are one of the ugliest abhumans in our codex)
insted of a powerfist with horifica, swap the powerfist for a power weapon and use close order drill to make him initiative 5!!!!
give your plasma gun squads a heavy weapon, plasma guns are a fairly stationary special weapon, give them a autocannon(both weapons are the same str, they can hunt monstrous creature or light vehicles together. or if you give them a heavy bolter(i know i said they were crap, but they are good at putting wounds on monstrous creatures(snipers are even better) add a heavy bolter and tear up monstrous creatures.
go with a demolisher insted of a basalisk, it seems you want a mobile list and I love mobile lists, drop the bassie for a demo, its a very mobile tank, that is great for any spearhead.
perhaps you might want to drop the russ for a bassie, everyone uses russes static, and a basalisk can do that better because of its indirect fire and it's more powerful cannon
anyway, good luck getting back in the field!
