This is mostly a fun list for a campaign, that includes Necrons and Tyranids
4 grenade Launchers
Commisar w/ power sword
Commisar w/ power weapom
Heavy Weapon Squad
Leman Russ Demolisher
Plasma Cannon Side-sponsons (yes, i know very controversial but so far they've paid back their points in all the games i've played with them)
the two infantry platoons mob up into two large squads with the flamer PCS and CCS runnoing forwards behind them calling orders etc. the autocannons sit on an objective with the grenade launcher PCS giving fire support and going to ground when they need to, the demolisher follows the platoons forwards in sending plasma cannon shots and demolisher cannon shots over their heads. Marbo jumps in and rips apart their firing line with the aid of mr demo charge and mr ripper pistol.
- In an infantry list, Creed will be more helpful than Straken.
- That Demolisher, being the only vehicle in your army, will get dropped on turn 1 as every enemy anti-tank weapon is fired at it.
- Power Swords in your line squads will achieve absolutely nothing
Sorry mate, but I don't like this list. It's infantry based, but you have nowhere near the number of Infantry Squads to make that work. You need to be packing Autocannons in left, right and centre. If your main opponents are going to be Tyranids and Necrons you have to have a way to get around We'll Be Back and multi-wound MC's. The key to this is high strength, AP3 and multi-shot weaponry. Autocannons, Plasmaguns, Missile Launchers. You think Guardsmen with a power weapon are going to take out 10 Necron Warriors? Or 30 Gaunts?
how is creed more helpful in an infantry list?
Unless you're doing a City Fight army A shooty Guardlist will do better than a combat list. Guard just wern't meant to do combat. At the very best they're a close firefight army. All other combat Armies will beat you at the game you're trying to play. Nids, even basic Hormagaunts are Init5 so will hit your first, they have bucket loads of attacks and can re-roll 1's to hit in combat. They'll kill you even if you charge and for the same if not less points.
Straken gives your list the ability to counter attack your opponents when they get close but you still need to use the firepower available to you. Taking a Blobbed Squad of 20-30 blokes with power weapons and a commissar is fine but you still need a decent fire base to thin down the enemy assault units before they get to you.
