    1300 Cadians

    A simple list i think, I love Lemans Russes and are a must for me, By far my fav. Vehicle in the game in all aspects. i have 2 fodder squads designed to move in for objectives and distractions and the Vets are anti tank/ 2+ save killers. The other 2 squads with the HQ are pretty much anti armour defense i dont know if i should give the 2 squads hvy bolters instead? The 2 cmd squads are just fodder to advance on objectives with squads 1 and 2.
    3 battlecannon plates are ment for closing assault troops.

    Your HQ Lascannon will be targeted very fast, so I would drop the Lascannon and add Drop Troops and three Meltaguns to this squad to drop in take out heavy armour.

    Add a Mortar to the Command squad and Iron Discipline. Are you going to walk these guys around? I don't think it is a good idea. I would add a HB to each, and keep in cover. If you add Cameleolene to the Vets, you have to add it to all squads, so either drop from the vets, or add to these other squads.

    I would exchange the GL for Plasmas, it fits better with the roll of Lascannons.

    Nice! I like to have a Bassie as well, but who can fault three Russes! I might add smoke as well.

    Hope that helps!

    Cheers!

    Hey - nice list here. I share your enthusiasm for Russes.

    I would take the Lascannon out of your HQ. If you are setting up a vox network you want these guys out of LOS. Their primary role on the battlefield is to stay alive.

    Your Veterans are excelent, apart from one thing. If you take Cameleoline, you need to equip all squads. So either take it away from the veterans and get back 20pts, or spend 70pts giving it to everyone. This is a doctrine best kept for armies with alternative troops like Grenadiers.

    Your infantry squads are using less than ideal weapons combos. The best ones to go for are Plasmagun/Lascannon, Grenade Launcher/Heavy Bolter, and possibly Grenade Launcher/Autocannon. These compliment each other best.

    Also, equip all your squads with Heavy Weapons. 2 squads reserved for assault may seem like a good idea, but trust me - you will find out they cant fill that role very quickly.

    The russes are very nice. The hull and sponson H.Bolter combo is a particularly effective one.

    One other comment I would make is that 1300pts is an unusual cost. 1500pts armies are considered to be pretty much standard, so I would try and spend 200pts somewhere. Perhaps some fast attack? Hellhounds or Sentinels. Maybe switch one of those russes for a demolisher? It's up to you - but I advise slapping the extra 200pts on it. After all, you can always go back down from 1500, you just cant go up from 1300.

    I would make 1 change: unless you have any serious fluff reason not to, put plasmaguns with your Lascannons. It will only cost 4pts and the weapons work well together. Other than that, looking excelent, and good choice with the Hellhounds for 1500.
