Pretty green to 40k, and to this forum as wel, I've found this place an enormous treasure of information. Really great!
I've come up with this list as beeing my fist attemt at making one. Aiming at approx 500 pts, friendly, I will be facing Orks, Nids, Tau and Spacemarines, so I figured that a balanced list is probably the best option. I am also trying to do this with a Cadian Battleforce and a Leman Russ for a start, but I recon it 'll get bigger overtime... The Leman is waiting patiently in its box, eager to get out and fight, the Battleforce is still to be bought.
Here we go, your comments are greatly appreciated!
Platoon Command Squad:
Infantry Squad I:
Infantry Squad II:
Heavy Weapons Squad:
Hull mounted Lascannon
Total Points: 453
My plan is to use the platoon like a (tiny I know) sledgehammer, the Russ for infantry support and the Sentinel as an outflanking Tankhunter.
What would be a good thing to bring in to get the points over 500?
There is probably a lot that can be improved, please let me know, thanks!
You need a second troops choice.
If I recall correctly, infantry squads do not have access to heavy flamers, just the normal ones.
I do not recommend Plasmaguns at this point level, especially on a BS3 model. GL, Flamer, or Meltagun would be my recommendation, in that order.
Armored Sentinels (cannot outflank) are good tarpits, if you want an outflanking Sentinel, I'd opt for a Scout Sentinel w/ autocannon or multilaser and a HK Missile.
The Russ is a solid choice.
You have some good ideas, but your missing some required elements. A simple platoon list would look something like this at 500 points.
CCS: 4x GL, Camo 90 Platoon PCS: 4x Flamer 60 IS: GL 55 IS: GL, Commissar 90 Platoon PCS: 4x Flamer 60 IS: GL 55 IS: GL, Commissar 90
