    1k mech IG list

    hello everyone, been deployed since the new dex came out so i have not had the opportunity to try this list in any actual game play yet, i was hoping you guys could offer any advice. I realize its only 1k points but i figured start small with an easily scalable list so that i could focus on plugging any weaknesses as the points went up. also ive researched as much as possible what other people have had success with on the forums.

    HQ
    CCS (80)
    Melta x3

    Elite
    PBS (100)
    +4 Psykers

    Inquisitor (32)
    Mystics x2

    Troops
    Vet Squad 1 (100)
    Melta x3

    Vet Squad 2 (100)
    Flamer x2
    Heavy Flamer

    HS
    Leman Russ (150)
    HHF

    Leman Russ Demolisher (165)
    HHF

    Chimera x5 (275)
    Multi Lazer
    HHF

    Total (1002)

    My main question is how bad am i going to be hurting on some of these scenarios with only 2 troop choices? it would be easy enough to drop the PBS for another Vet Squad of whatever flavor. Also would i be better served dropping the HF on squad 2 for a regular one in order to free points up for something else, as there is one on every vehicle? Any input would be appreciated, thank you.

    People do tend to target troops now in games where you need scoring units (66% of the time). On the other hand it is only 1k points and your guys are in chimeras. Keep them protected and use your other stuff as the front line, send them after isolated units but be careful the target is not bait.

    If your not going to use them aggressively maybe you could drop them for an PCS and 10 x 2 guardsmen. Your only 25 points shy of another chimera then, even with keeping the weapons (give the 1 extra from each vet squad to the PCS).

    I would just because it is so many points. I'd only take it if I was trying to clear a bunker (playing planetstrike as attacker).

    Now you are only 5 points away from an extra chimera. Or you could have a unit walk, keeping up with the move move move order when no other orders can be used. I like to have infantry protect vehicles anyway. But you have the mystics...

    Good list though. You could do it either way (2 troops or 3, but I like psykers)

    I like the list though.

    I'd keep the PBS, they'll be prioritised higher than everything bar your russes. Just keep their chimera out of harms way.

    The inquisitor has to take a chimera from the DH codex, you only have 4 IG units with chimera options so you can only take 4 chimeras from the IG codex. Dropping 3 additional psykers from the PBS would be IMO the best way to solve this problem, most things will run with -5 LD anyway.

    You could also drop vet squad 2's heavy flamer and take 2 HB sponsonson your vanilla russ.

    Overall the list looks good, there's just a few minor things.

    Thank you both for your input, thanks darby5 i do see myself as more of a defensive player so im gonna make up another list without the vets and see how it looks. Im kinda adverse to having 1 squad foot slog it as it wouldn't feel like a real mech list to me. If i do drop the vets is the lack of special weapon concentration going to hurt at all, and the BS 3....ughh.

    Kevin V, thank you for pointing that out about needing the DH Chimera, didn't know. ill see if i can talk to my brother about point values (he plays DH so has the dex) and see if i need to readjust. ill play with the idea of dropping down to 5 in the PBS, its just that everyone else seems to run 8.

    I led you astray. The PCS + 2 troops is only one troop choice. Sorry noob mistake.
