    Balanced 1,500 list

    Here's a reasonably balanced list with plenty of infantry and armour, anti-infantry and anti-armour weapons. Company Command sits inside (or behind) the Chimera giving orders, which itself sits behind the main Platoon gunlines. Platoon squads switch between Frag or Krak depending on the enemy.

    Vendetta vets hunt enemy tanks or MC's, Chimera vets hunt MC's or heavy infantry with Bastonne at the enemy lines. Sentinels outflank to attempt to hit the enemy rear armour and can lend support to either unit as needed. Leman Russes provide covering fire or distraction wherever needed, probably supporting the main gunline.

    Company Command Squad
    Mortar, Master of Ordnance, Regiment Standard
    Chimera with 2 Heavy Bolters
    155

    Platoon A
    Command Squad with Mortar and Grenade Launcher
    Infantry Squad with Missile Launcher and Grenade Launcher
    Infantry Squad with Missile Launcher and Grenade Launcher
    180

    Platoon B
    Command Squad with Mortar and Grenade Launcher
    Infantry Squad with Missile Launcher and Grenade Launcher
    Infantry Squad with Missile Launcher and Grenade Launcher
    180

    Veterans in Vendetta Gunship
    Shotguns and 3 Meltaguns
    Vendetta with 3 Lascannons
    230

    Veterans in Chimera
    Lukas Bastonne and 3 Plasma Guns
    Chimera with 2 Heavy Bolters
    230

    Scout Sentinel Squadron
    3 Lascannons
    150

    Leman Russ Battle Tank
    Heavy Bolter
    150

    Leman Russ Battle Tank
    Heavy Bolter
    150

    Total: 1425

    ---

    I have 75 points remaining. What should this be spent on?
    • Comissar Lord to babysit the Company Command and gunline
    • Upgrades such as Heavy Stubbers and Extra Armour for the vehicles
    • Upgrades for the Veterans; Demolitions and Grenadiers respectively
    • Buffing up the cheap Command Squads with Medics, Special Weapons, Power Fists etc
    I could also swap the Sentinels for another Vendetta, which could fly solo or with Bastonne instead of the Chimera. Doing the latter would give me another 75 points (for 150 total). That is potentially:
    • A third Leman Russ
    • Two more Platoon Infantry Squads with ML GL
    • A cheap unit of Ogryns
    • etc.
    I can't decide. What are your thoughts, trusty Imperial Guard forum?

    Just the one Vendetta will draw a lot of fire and die horribly, taking another will give you redundancy so things don't go pear shaped if your enemy guns down 1 AV12 vehicle.

    I don't like lascannons on Sentinels, very expensive, I prefer autocannons.

    Autocannon > Missile Launcher generally, it's cheaper and better against light vehicles and infantry depending on how much they bunch up.

    Russes are cheap and blasty.

    It looks good enough, but a little focusing wouldn't hurt. Getting more vehicles, more meltas, and more templates are never a bad idea.

    I know what you're saying, but I'm trying to stick to a blast theme with the Platoon squads. I prefer the versatility of the ML over the AC, especially because it works so well with the GL. A frag missile will generally get more shots on horde armies as they bunch up, a krak missile will deny MEQ's an armour save (also may Instant Death). AC does neither.

    What about swapping 3 LC Sentinels for 3 AC Sentinels, drop a Chimera and use those points to get a 2nd Vendetta for the other Veteran Squad? But the Vendetta doesn't have all those juicy fire points for Plasma death.

    I'm fairly (perhaps wrongly) cocksure with my choices so far, mostly because I've bought all the above models, haha. I'm just stuck with what to do with the points left over. Making the LC Sentinels AC instead would give me 100 points. Hmmmm.
