    Hmm... you cant post the price in points directly like you did with Marbo and the Basilisk, is a violation of the copyright rules of the forum.

    The company command squad cant buy 2x heavy weapons.

    The Valks look a little expensive for medium AV vehicles.

    two masters of ordanance eh?... dirty boy, as such for your arial support you should definately have some vedettas to hunt tanks and anihilate hight armoured troops, you drop enough pie with two masters anyway, remember also that your command squads will attract bullets like thermo nuclear magnets, consider a medic for the just in cases, lastly reconsider going valk heavy, they are cool but simply put they are very large, killable targets that dont provide as much fire power as i would like for 140 points, not to mention that something that big sitting almost a foot of the table will be able to be seen by almost every model on the board no matter where you stick it.

    You sure? I quote:
    "Replace 2 other veterans with a heavy weapon team"
    It doesn't say only 1 can be taken, just 2 can be replaced. So technically couldn't you replace 2 twice? Your probably right tho... Ill swap one team for a sniper rifle.

    And i sorted out the points thing, thanks for pointing it out.

    Im very sorry but did you just say: "don't provide as much fire power as i would like for 140 points" Why on earth not??????

    They provide 6 S5 AP4 shots, 3 S6 AP6 shots and 2 S4 AP6 pie plates...

    All that for 140pts? Thats probably more fire power than almost ANYTHING else for that many points. Certainly in the guard army as a russ costs 150. As for bieng vulnerable, it doesn't matter! The whole point is to dish out a huge amount of firepower for relitivley low points!

    On top of that you get a very fast transport to put your melta-guns on enemy rear armour.

    And as for swapping for vendettas my army has 6 melta-guns, 21 melta-bombs 6 S8plus ordinance weapons. My army is designed to drop a HUGE number of pie plates on the enemy. With BS3 standard its probably the best use of guard. And i definitly have enough anti-vehicle stuff. Also the valks have one place to hide the enemy can't see them, in reserve, they can outflank.
