Welcome to Librarium Online!
This is my current IG list kinda cheesy but i want to expand and make it fun.
CC-master of ordanance,Lc--- 100
CC-master of ordanance---80
5 Vet's-Lc each---450
2 LRBT-heavy bolters and Lc---370
this list works really well for me the infantry bein my anti tank and my tanks bein ant infantry fought a few games havnt lost yet 2 draws and 4 wins
But for the expantion to 2000 i was thinkin this to add on
another Russ with same set up 185
3 Valkyries with MRP's and HB's 420
3X10 Ratlings to go in the valkyries for a fast punch and objectives 300
with 95 points left didnt really know what to put in thought of 3-4 vets with carapace armour or move some points around for a couple of griffons
also thought of replacin a valkyrie with a vendetta
let me know what u think critsism and idea would be welcome.
MoO is rubbish IMO, very inaccurate, I would drop both of them.
vets benefit from being able to take 3 special weapons, you aren't taking any!
Normal Inf squads would be better In the role of line squads than veterans.
You are using no melta weapons, meltas are pretty much the only reliable way of popping high armour tanks.
I don't know if you have read through anyone else's lists, they normally contain chimeltas, 3x melta vets in a chimera. These would be a very good thing to have in your army list.
Vendettas are much better than Valkyries IMO.
ratings suck, sniper rifles suck, I wouldn't take these.
Don't take carapace, its a waste of points.
heavy bolter sponsons on LRBTs limit manoeuvrability, and lascannons suck on BS3 tanks.
you make some excellent points, would just like to comment on them.
on the MOO's agreed are highly inacurate but for 30 pts i find they make up for it with pts back each game they have netted me around 100 pts at least each so i like em for what they give me, a cheap scare tactic more or less lol
As for the vets with Lc's i think u may have somethin there i might trade the Lc's in for 3 meltas apiece but not with chimers i know it limits me a bit but im not makin a mech list but merely mech assisted
the reason i didnt go with vendettas is because i already have enough anti tank now with 15 meltas at Bs4 the whole 3 twn link Lc thing would over kill it when i could always use a good transport with great anti infantry power
to me Ratlings are great i use to mess around with eldar and even with their pricy snipers i found they were just the thing to thin the ranks of some nasty things i play against alot of heavy infantry and beasties and its just i feel they can only help me
and yea i think i agree carapace isnt the way to go at least not with this army ill be goin with the griffons 2 Maybe 3 if i can sneak another in.
minus 2 MOO's -60
minus 6 Lc's -120
and minus Lc's on the tanks -45
add 15 meltas +150
take the bolters off vendetas+390
one russ +170
30 ratlings +300
3 griffons +225
what are ur thoughts on that? also i dont mean to be so argumenative lol just tryin to get better
Seeing as your vets have to be within 6" to use their meltas at max efficiency against tanks, they really need a chimera.
I stand by my comments on MoO and ratlings, yes they may make their points back sometimes, but other units can do it better, and for less points.
Vendettas can put out 3 twin linked lascannons, although with a very lucky shot you can take out AV14, that's not what they are for, they are perfect for taking out light-medium tanks and heavy infantry(and if you can fit them in, Heavy bolters are always good to have on vendettas.)
Also, vendettas can transport as many people as a Valkyrie.
i just read up on meltas and now see why there in chimeras lol ill think ill go back to LC's on em the BS4 LC rocks
what would u recogmend in place of the rats?
ill have to sit on the idea for vendettas like i said already have plenty anti tank not sure if more is what i need plus as a i side note i actually maintain apachee atk helicopters for the army and thats why i love the valkyrue so much the similarty of look and weapons is awesome
