Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright, so my local store has been running a campaign the past few weeks with steadily increasing points limit. My current 1000 point army is as follows and I wanted to know what you guys thought about upgrades when the points limit goes up again.
Naked (that's right, they just stand back and order while being totally ignored)
4x Flamer, Chimera
3 x Infantry Squad
2 x GL, 2 x Autocannon
3 x Meltagun, Chimera
2 x Scout Sentinels
Due to special campaign upgrades, all of my troops choices can have medics (FNP guard rock), the blob squad can have Tankhunters and the Vindicare can have +1 T and Slow and Purposeful. Don't think I've forgotten anything...
Points limit goes up to 1250 soon, I've been considering going for a pie-plate-fest by adding another Leman Russ (probably demolisher), a Griffon and a Master of Ordinance.
if you have 60 pts, use them! it is like 4 plasmagunners, or get an autocannon, 2 GL and camo cloak, hide in cover and soak up shots, but not waste them.
Anyway, master of ordnance isn't good. With 250 pts you can full kit the last Infantry squad and get 2 stormtroopers with meltagun to DS in the enemy backfield (going up with points means that vehicles will pop up soon - even you are thinking on more of them, why your opponent wouldn't?) and you lack AP1
Whatever you do, drop those HB sponsons and keep your russ mobile.
I'd drop those sentinels for an hydra: better armor, better firepower, less points, but can't scout. whatever...
Cheers for the comments Frost. I should've mentioned though: I can't change the things that are in the list so far. The spare 60pts is basically there for that reason: I was winning games fine without it and wanted to give myself more points to add things later once I had a better idea what I was lacking.
I don't own any stormtroopers, but it wouldn't be too hard to proxy them...
