Welcome to Librarium Online!
This is hopefully my final post for my list i am hoping to get help with. It comes to 2500 points exact and here it is:
HQ: Marneus Calgar 265
Armour of Antilochus
Troop: 10 man tactical squad 280
10 man tactical squad 235
10 man tactical squad 230
5 man scout sniper 100
4 sniper rifles
1 missle launcher
5 camo cloaks
Elite: Ironclad Dreadnaught 195
Twin lascannon 30
missle launcher 10
Fast Attack: Land speeder 60
Land Speeder 60
Vangaurd Veteran Squad 285
5 storm shields
3 power weapons
1 power fist
1 relic blade
Heavy support: Vindicator 140
Landraider crusader 275
That is my 2500 point list the general idea is to pop enemy transports then roll up the tact squads and spray them with bolter fire and melta or plas fire. I think i have a good fire base. The dreadnaught with the assault cannon will walk around spraying people with the assault cannon and storm bolter and assaulting if the time presents itself. as for the scout snipers will shoot monsterous creatures and enemy heros. Now i had to change out for the vangaurd vets cause my brother moved out and took my termies with him and he live across the country.
Please critize and give me some feed back
If you're loading up 285 points for your Vanguard, and plan on putting them in a Land Raider, you may as well get Assault Terminators. They can get Storm Shields for free and comes with a 2+ armour. Same number of attacks, better weapons and saves. If you went with the standard 5 men configuration, you free up enough points to get a Whirlwind or some other option to add diversity.
yah assault termies are nice but the thing is i dont have them and none of my friends have any i can barrow
I always smile when people sometimes assume that we all have infinite cash to go and buy new models with. I for one have to work within the constraints of my model collection. I somtimes wish I had painted all of my marines the same colour so that I could use the models more interchangeably.
As for your list. I like it. I do think that your Vanguard are a bit vulnerable but if they do make it into combat they are going to be pretty shocking.
When is the Ard Boyz event?
Also the only thing I would say about putting the Landraider with the Vanguard is that it may be a bit too killy. Not something I'd usually say but those assault flamers can slay a good few enemies and unless the things you are charging are incredibly tough cookies you may find that you have a serious overkill problem. This can result in your unit being stranded too far away too charge or not having very many foes to fight.
At the same time this may be precisely what you are aiming to achieve. Best of luck to you!
@atsum: If your list is pretty fixed, then you should play test your Land Speeders in a squadron formation, and in individual capacity. Since you've got the slots open, it's good to test it before the tournament as both versions have their strengths and weaknesses.
