Like the title says I faced this in round 2 of a tournament over the weekend. It was a tough battle, naturally I lost. Nids just arn't the right army for it but still. I thought the army was awesome and I'm actually interested in running it with my guard. Its quite a sight to see on the table, I must say. Anyway here it is check it out! Please give opinions.
Company command squad
10 man psyker battle squad
-multiple rocket pod
- heavy bolter
There all mounted up.
This actually churns out to be 1755, and I'm unsure where the other 95 points in his list came from, what would you do?
What a waste of 50pts. You can do so much with this squad and leaving it naked makes it no use to anyone. If you're going to take a naked HQ just because you have too, get a Psyker instead.
It's ok, I don't like the Valk lists. Your main units, your scoring and therefore important units, are basically suicide units. They jump out, kill some stuff and then get killed by the 3 Marines they failed to kill. Personally i'd take Chimeras over Valks/Vendettas as transports. Not having to get out of your ride is an insanely good thing and it makes your infantry very hard to shift.
VALKs, I'd drop the Lascannon. You've got Vendettas and Melta Vets for Tank killing so keep the Multilasers and save yourself some points.
With the large amount of Mechanised forces starting to spring up i'd grab 2 squadrons of Vendettas supported by 1 squadron of Valks.
Valk lists look like alot of fun to play but they're not really my style so I leave them be. Only having 3 Vehicles (to me squadrons count as one) seems very fragile. AV12 is also not that hard to take out to an opponent who's got a balenced list. The list is very fragile so you need to be seriously canny to pull it off. It does look very impressive on the battle feild though.
I hear Mastershake and Diggums hammer are very good with their Valk lists so you might do well to drop them a line. They have actual experience using valk lists where as my advice is all theory
