    BA 1850 Tournament List - Need Help

    There is a new local tournament starting up for WH40k, and I would like to have a good army to take to have fun with and still win. So w/o further adieu I present my 1850pt list.

    HQ:
    Epistolary Librarian - Sword and Shield - 150pts
    I really want to bring this guy because I kit bashed him out of some 7+'ish kits and really want to use him.

    Elites:
    9x Sternguard - 5x Combi-Meltas + Rhino D.T. - 285pts
    Librarian rides with these guys in the middle of the armored column.

    Troops:
    5x Assault Squad - D.T. Razorback w/ TLAC - 155pts
    5x Assault Squad - D.T. Razorback w/ TLAC - 155pts
    5x Assault Squad - D.T. Razorback w/ TLAC - 155pts
    5x Assault Squad - D.T. Razorback w/ TLAC - 155pts

    Fast Attack:
    Baal Predator - Flamestorm Cannon, Dozer Blade - 120pts
    Baal Predator - Flamestorm Cannon, Dozer Blade - 120pts
    Baal Predator - TLAC, Dozer Blade - 120pts

    Heavy Support:
    Vindicator - Dozer Blade - 150pts
    Vindicator - Dozer Blade - 150pts
    Predator - Lascannon Sponsons - 135pts

    Pretty standard Razor/Pred Spam, Razors stay back and assist firepower where needed until they race to claim objectives. Preds and Vindi's do what they do draw fire and blow lots of things up. Anyway, let me know what you guys think and improvements that could be made to the list.

    Thanks

    Librarian's a fine choice. I would Pod the Sternguard into battle. They're only effective at point-blank anyway, they distract the enemy from rushing you and, well, you're going to have traffic issues with so many vehicles.

    I would also lose a Flamestorm Predator for the tenth Sternguard, so they can combat squad out of the Drop Pod. (The Librarian can easily ride in a Razorback.) The points left over would be well spent on power weapons and such for the Assault Squads. Nobody but the Guard is going to play the shooting game against this list.

    Thank you for the reply. I made the changes you suggested, and this is what I came up with. Also, since I removed 1 Flame Baal, I decided to turn the other back into a TLAC Baal, or do you think I should change them both into Flame Baals? Regardless here is the new proposed list:

    HQ:
    Epistolary Librarian - Shield & Sword - 150pts

    Elites:
    10x Sternguard - 4x Combi-Meltas & Drop Pod - 305pts

    Troops:
    5x Assault Squad - 1x Power Weapon, 1x Meltagun & Razor w/ TLAC - 180pts
    5x Assault Squad - 1x Power Weapon, 1x Meltagun & Razor w/ TLAC - 180pts
    5x Assault Squad - 1x Power Weapon, 1x Meltagun & Razor w/ TLAC - 180pts
    5x Assault Squad - 1x Power Weapon, 1x Meltagun & Razor w/ TLAC - 180pts

    Fast Attack:
    Baal Predator - TLAC & Dozer Blade - 120pts
    Baal Predator - TLAC & Dozer Blade - 120pts

    Heavy Support:
    Vindicator - Dozer Blade - 150pts
    Vindicator - Dozer Blade - 150pts
    Predator - Lascannon Sponsons - 135pts

    Same as always, comments welcomed. If you have any experience running a list like this in a tournament let me know how it went, and things I should look out for.

    Thank you.

    Bumping the thread, this tournament is coming up soon and I would just like to get the best/most possible advice before committing this army list. Like am I lacking in certain areas anti tank/infanty? Do I need to swap any units out that would better fill certain roles? Let me know, I appreciate it!

    Humm. Baal Predator should have dozer blade and flamestorm. Reasons? hoses MEQ, Hoses Units in cover. And can hit the other side of the board first turn. Baal preds should basically make a run at prime targets like devestator squads, and anything trying to vainly receive a cowardly cover save. You could remove the pred and change one of teh assault squads dedicated transports to a land raider instead, AV14, twin-linked lascannons, assault viecle, ect. Take advantage of land raiders being dedicated troop movers. did you ever think of running terminators over sterguard and just deep striking?

    I have a few practice games with this list this weekend, I'll try TLACs and Flamestorms on the Baals in different games and see which I prefer. I wasn't too sure on how well Flamestorms did in a tournament scene which is why I asked about it.

    About the terminators, no I had not thought about it, but I suppose it could be worth looking into. 305pts towards Terms and perhaps a Priest could provide a fun distraction. I'll post a 2nd list here in a moment with some DS'ing Terminators.
