This weekend ill be playing a game against one of my mates who play imperial guard. It's going to be 1000 points and I'm pretty sure of what he is going to try and spam plasma guns on his squad, he'll probs be taking a LR with battle cannon and a lascannon crew.
How do you guys think this army list will fair against him?
5 man scout squad
10 man T-Squad (motf join)
thanks in advance for any advice and critiques.
It looks alright to be honest with you. If you're friend is running a Gunline army getting some drop podding units and dreads with Flamers/H-Flamers will be the best way of dealing with them. However with Mech you're going to have some trouble. Guard can field a stupid and I mean stupid amount of decently armoured vehicles in small point games so i'd consider grabbing some more melta weapons.
Also, not sure how competant your opponent is but, he may have some nasty tricks up his sleeve like keeping Bane Wolves, Rough Riders or Veterans with Melta guns and democharges in reserve, waiting for you to turn up and then nuking your marines and Dreadnaughts when they arrive. (something to think about anyway it's what I do against drop pod armies)
Anyway, why the Master of the Forge? you aren't taking more than 3 Dreads so there's no real point in him. Consider another HQ like a Libby or Chaplin. The Libby can be handy with the Avenger power or Gate. I'd also consider putting a powerfist on your Tactical squad sergeant. The ability to punch some tanks into submission will be handy, especially against Guard. Also swap the M-Launcher to a M-Melta. You'll be podding down anyway.
I took a motf because i thought that for a 100 points he comes with a PF and when he drops in i could fix my dreds. no doubt they will be shot to pieces.
and also that was 1st post i made. didnt realise there was an army list section.
