Welcome to Librarium Online!
2 platoons with flamers and auto cannons. (PCS and 2 squads)
and a chimera
Then I dont really know where to go from this point. I was thinking
rough riders or a hell hound. Any ideas please.
I think this thread will be moved to the "lists" area in the Guard section of the forum.
Like andrewbeater said, this needs to go in the "Army Lists" subforum for Imperial Guard.
You also need some other information. What point level are you playing at? What kind of IG army are you going for, gunline, aggressive mech, or leafblower? I suggest you take a little time and browse some of the threads on the IG forums, there's usually several on the front page asking these types of questions, so you may find the answers you're looking for.
As far as Rough Riders go, nobody really uses them. They're okay as one shot throw away weapons, but they compete for Fast Attack slots with the vastly superior Sentinel, Hellhound, and Vendetta Gunship.
Hellhounds are a fun unit that strike fear into the hearts of infantry everywhere. A STR 6 template that you can fire 12" away? On a fast tank? Awesome! I prefer it to the Bane Wolf or Devil Dog, the former because at STR 6, it wounds T4 on a 2+ anyways, and 1 lower AP in exchange for the greatly reduced range isn't worth it to me. The only time that's better is when you're up against Marine equivalent units, and only those. Anything with a 2+ save or a 4+ save, the Hellhound will be just as good or better. As far as the latter goes, I already have plenty of anti tank in my army, the Hellhound fills a dedicated anti-infantry role.
Im new to forums in general, how do I move it?
*Looks around forum*
I was thinking of going for a specialist infantry and light vehicles and tanks, so yeh I think its the aggressive mech you said.
Sad to hear about the Rough Riders they could make some pretty epic looking models
I was thinking of getting a few hell hound variants, but it would be the Bane Wolf as I normally go against Space wolves or Necrons.
Thanks for the replies so far
A mod has to move the thread. Speaking of which...
*thread punted to the IG army list section*
Spambot kill tally. . .337
Thank you Sorry about that.
It's a good place to start, if you don't want to go with a mechanized force. A Hellhound or two with hull multimelta would give you some fast tank killers and give you some nice cover denial.
Praise the Emperor and pass the promethium!
What point level? Are you talking about a chimera for every squad, or one chimera for the army? The obvious next purchase is a basic russ, or a demolisher...
You really don't have to pigeonhole yourself into one category...mine's a blend between leafblower and agressive mech (at 1850)...With an agressive element consisting of two melta-PCSs, a plasma-CCS, a demolisher, and a pair of hellhounds on the aggro side, and six fire support chimeras and a pair of basic russes on the leafblower side. With six maneuver and eight support tanks, it's pretty balanced, IMHO. The only real downside is that, with six of the eight scoring units being in the fire support element, some of them often have to stop shooting and start moving around turn four in order to lock up objectives.
