Welcome to Librarium Online!
You may remember my first attempt at a Drop Pod army, this is my second...I'd love to know what you think...
HQ - 17x (not sure if I can give his exact amount?)
Troops - 570
10 Man Tactical Squad
10 Man Tactical Squad
5 Man Scout Squad
Elites - 595
10 Man Sternguard Squad
Fast Attack - 140
3 Attack Bikes
Total - 1480
The plan is to obviously drop three pods on turn one to one side of the enemies line. The Sternguard go in first, with their locator beacon guiding a pod of tacticals and a Dread. Which Dread depends on what i'm facing - If it's armour, in goes the MM. Against Fexes I guess either is good - Hordes will see the Plasma Cannon going in, as well as the Sterguard's combi melta's being exchanged for combi-flamers...
I was going to sit Telion and his Scouts on my home objective and take long pot shots at the enemy - Telion can either snipe or guide the ML. Scouts will have standard bolters.
The final two pods will hopefully come in rather rapidly to support the initial attack, or if required add fire support to the scouts - i'm thinking the biggest threat to them is outflanking genestealers or teleporting warp spiders of the like....
I was planning on using the attack bikes to go tank hunting - Might swap out all the MM's for HB's if I'm going against a horde...could give me the potential for a lot of dakka dakka goodness...
Now - how think ye all I will fair? Also, can anyone see where I can save a few points in order to take Lysander instead of Kantor if I feel it necessary? I was thinking taking out the Power Fist and using a Power weapon instead...that would save me a few I guess...
Thanks in advance!
Youcould drop a sternguard to take lysander instead of kantor, but then you wouldn't be able to combat squad them. Still though the abitity to bolter drill the 10 of them should make up for this bolster defences lets ur sscouts live with +2 to thir cover saves and help out with the sternguard losing scoring status.
