After returning from abit of a hiatus from the gaming tables, i walked into my local store and played a game with my old BA list. It got wiped out by 1500 of chaos ( 2 DP, 2 squads of plague marines, 1 khorne, oblits and termies). Basically i failed to charge him got charged instead and it was all over from then onwards i only managed 2 kill points.
Decided to start from scratch building a 1000pt army want to know what you guys think.
Librarian (Base has sword and soul shackle powers) - 100 pts
Sanguinary Priest - 50 pts
Furiso Dread (Drop pod) - 160 pts
Tactical Squad (Razorback, melta gun, plasma cannon) - 235 pts
Tactical Squad (Razorback, flamer, plasma cannon, power weapon) - 245 pts
Assault Squad (5 more, power weapon, melta bombs) - 210
Total = 1000 pts
Give the sarges power fists. They do better.
Don't know the BA codex that well or I'd comment more. It does seem balanced though.
You might struggle against any AV14.
"I have dug my grave in this place and I will either triumph or I will die!" Reclusiarch Grimaldus
"Those I cannot crush with words I will crush with the Tanks of the Imperial Guard!" Lord Solar Macharius
"Hear Me Inquisitor Ordinary. Obey me. I am of the Malleus!" Inquisitor Jaq Draco
Did I read you right in that you took on 1500 of chaos with only 1000 of BA? If so, I suggest that you start by adding another 500 pts of guys to your army.
i would make both the tac squads assault squads, you would save points on the because they can exchange their jump packs for 35 pts toward their transport, and they are still troops
My bad watchwood I should have been more clear i was giving a reason for wanting to start a totally new list. I played chaos with a 1500 list, but that list was abit retarded so i thought it'd be better to start over and i wanted to set out a 1000pt base which can be expanded later.
I would consider giving your sergeants a bit more love. A Power fist here and there is never a bad thing to have. Expecially when up against Monstrous Creatures and T4 2 wound models (like Obliterators, Ork Nobz etc).
I'd also think about giving your assault squad some special weapons. Flamers and Melta guns are so cheap it's rude not to take them.
To get points I would probably loose the Dread and take something else. Either a Vindicator or Predator/Baal to give your Razor backs a bit of Armoured support and Cover.
