    1500 Vendetta Challenge

    Ok, I pose a challenge to the board:
    Make a list with the following constraints: (ps, a list i made follows, so you can comment on that too)
    1. The only vehicles in the list must be Vendettas
    2. The total amount of points must be no greater than 1500 (and no less than...say 1400, so no 1000 point lists)
    3. The only other units allowed must be able to ride inside a Vendetta.
    4. You may have Vendetta's without units inside, but you may not have units that are not inside Vendettas
    5. You may only use units form the 5th edition Imperial Guard Codex

    Guideline:
    Your list must be able to do ok against any kind of list but so it can be put to test, it must be able to do well against both a heavy vehicle list and an heavy infantry list.

    Things to remember:
    1. as per the rules, you need at least 1 hq and 2 troop choices
    2. a vendetta squadron can have 1-3 vendettas in it

    Sugestions:
    So the various lists are easy to compare, try to format your lists as below.

    Here's my list:
    Vendetta Gunship Squadron: * 2
    --Pair of sponsons w/ Heavy bolters on each
    Vendetta Gunship Squadron: * 2
    --Pair of sponsons w/ Heavy bolters on each
    Vendetta Gunship Squadron: * 2
    --Pair of sponsons w/ Heavy bolters on each
    Sub-total: 840

    -Inside 1: Veteran Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Shotgun
    -Inside 2: Veteran Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Shotgun
    Sub-total:200

    -Inside 3: Veteran Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Shotgun
    -Inside 4: Company Command Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Heavy Flamer
    ---Plasma Pistol
    ---Carapase Armor
    Sub-total:230

    -Inside 5: Veteran Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Shotgun
    -Inside 6: Company Command Squad
    ---Meltagun * 3
    ---Heavy Flamer
    ---Plasma Pistol
    ---Carapase Armor
    Sub-total:230

    Total: 1500

    So your only anti-horde weaponry is 12 Heavy Bolter sponsons and 2 Heavy Flamers?

    You may want to try this one.

    Company Command + 2x Melta-Gun
    Platoon Command
    Infantry Squad
    Infantry Squad
    Platoon Command
    Infantry Squad
    Infantry Squad
    3x Vendetta
    3x Vendetta
    3x Valkyrie with Missile Pods

    As per your list, exchange pair of Vendettas per pair of Valkyries with Missile Pods and drop all Heavy Bolters. Per these 60 points drop also Carapaces and PPistols from Commands and make all your Veteran units look something like that: Fist; 2x Melta; Heavy Flamer; 7x Shotgun. Your commands too with three meltas each, you know the drill.

    Then, if you have nay points left buy sponson bolters for Valkyries.

    Good lists so far. My only suggestion:

    Drop hb sponsons cuz they are truly worthless. They have a very limited firing arc and if you move more than 6" they aren't firing anyway. Oh and did I mention they are wasted when you fire them at whatever those lcs are firing at?

    Utter rubbish upgrade. Not even worth it on the anti-horde valk setup. Get rid of them and use the points to bolster your troops.
    If you win games against Nids with flamers (aside from the Inferno Cannon on a Hellhound), you're playing against opponents with stupidity of impressive magnitude.

    Fun list Vanrooyen, one suggestion that I made above:

    Drop the HB sponsons and instead give your Sgts some CCness, maybe a plasma pistol. Only benefit I see of HB sponsons is for weapon destroyed results, but your opponent chooses what you lose anyway, so that is sort of negated.
    If you win games against Nids with flamers (aside from the Inferno Cannon on a Hellhound), you're playing against opponents with stupidity of impressive magnitude.
