    Semi-new player, 500-2000 point progression list

    Hey, just put this together and would love comments.

    HQ

    CCS
    Missile Launcher

    Troop 1

    PCS
    Flamers x4
    Chimera w/hvy flamer & multilaser

    Squad 1
    Auto Cannon, Grenade Launcher

    Squad 2-3
    Autocannon

    Troop 2

    Veterans
    Melta X2
    Chimera

    Total: 500 pts

    CCS addition: Plasma x2

    Troop 1 squad 2-3 addition: Grenade Launcher
    Troop squad 4 added with auto cannon

    Vet Addition: Bastonne, Vox, Melta x1, Change Chimera for Vendetta

    Total: 750 pts

    CCS addition: Remove Missile Launcher, Add Medic, Plasma X1, Chimera

    Troop squad 4: Change Autocannon to missile launcher, Add Grenade Launcher

    Add LRBT

    Total: 1000 pts

    CCS addition: Carapace

    Add Basilisk, Leman Demolisher

    Add Vet Squad w/ GL X3 and Chimera

    Total: 1960 pts

    Sorry if the format is weird, I thought it would be the easiest way to show the progression from 500 pts to 2000. I think most of it is straight foward (chimeras run around destroying things, vendetta drops in and kills vehicles, etc). I'm not quite sure what to do with the last 40 points. It pretty much has to go to the vehicles, either extra armor for the chimeras, sponsons for the lemans, or pintles all around.

    Any questions or comments are welcome and appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    For 500 points, how about a commander with the orbital bombardment guy.

    2 squads of guardsmen with 3 heavy weapons teams of heavy bolter
    Plus
    1 heavy weapons team of autocannons? and they all have carapace armour.
    Plus a tech priest with a power weapon.

    Just short suggestions

    thanks

    Thank you for your comment.

    First of all, I'd like to keep it as a progression list, so I don't want to change the 500 point list too far from the 750 point list, and so on. The idea is that at 500 points, it can deal with the threats expected at 500 points, and so on as the points increase.

    Secondly, I'm not sure how your suggested layout works. I've tried a couple of calculations and I'm not getting 500 points. Is it a command squad, two troop choices (two PCS, four squads), and a tech priest? What's the purpose of the tech priest with no vehicles? He's not independent and can't join a squad, so he's just a target.

    Thirdly, I noticed some of my primary calculations were off. The last list is 1460, not 1960.

    Again, please keep the comments comming, I appreciate all advice and critiques.

    No problem, i understand

    the tech priest with a power axe is just a good old c.c character when some oddball reaches through your hailf of fire. usually a guy with a good save or a nasty power fist equivilant.

    ( he can join any squad, if they have no special rules that don't allow anyone in, once the game has started )

    I saw it happen a few times today and the tech marine sorted them out every time, when other guardsmen couldn't.

    CCS
    orbital guy


    Platoon 1

    PCS
    grenade launcher x2

    Squad 1
    Grenade Launcher

    Squad 2
    Grenade Launcher

    3x heavy weapons teams
    3x heavy bolters

    Platoon 2

    PCS
    grenade launcher x2

    Squad 1
    Grenade Launcher

    Squad 2
    Grenade Launcher

    2x heavy weapons teams
    2x autocannons

    something like that, might just clip 500 points, but i don't know at the top of my head.
    Also putting points cost of each individual squad would help.

    thanks
