    [500] Combat Patrol - Themed

    This is a themed CP I've been working on, based around the Alliance army from the show Firefly and the movie Serenity... let me know what you think. It's a slight bit lacking against MEQs, but I think it can be made up for with "skill"..

    Doctrines: Grenadiers, Carapace Armour, Allow Storm Troopers

    [9] Veterans (Carapaced)
    +Autocannon
    +2x Grenade Launchers
    +Plasma Gun
    [1] Veteran Sergeant
    +Powerfist

    [10] Grenadiers
    +Grenade Launcher
    +Plasma Gun
    [1] Chimera
    +Multilaser
    +Heavy Bolter

    [10] Storm Troopers
    +Infiltrate
    +Grenade Launcher
    +Plasma Gun

    Total comes to 497 points..

    The idea is that the Grenade Launcher/Plasma Gun combo is a "standard" infantry setup - the GL is there for the high explosive work, bunkers/places that need blowing up to get into, while the Plasma Gun represents a "bioweapon".. more expensive, used to get rid of single targets.

    Opinions? Keep in mind, this is a themed army, so any suggestions that don't fall within the theme will be disregarded. I know how to make reasonably effective army lists, so don't state too many obvious things.

    Appreciated in advance.

    He's there for two reasons...

    One, as a "just in case" when the enemy assaults.

    Two, I don't have anything else to spend points on.

    *shrug*

    Suggestions welcome for that.

    Hi Nemesis, I've never seen Serenity - so I can't really comment on the theme, but the first thing that strikes me is that the army is illegal. You have no HQ choice and only 1 troop choice. Obviously you would need to fit a command platoon in there somewhere and loose the infiltrate on your stormies to make them grenadiers

    Combat Patrol rules. One Troop choice required, HQ is not required. We just upped the 400 point limit to 500.

    Aren't power fists Officer only ? I don't think a vet sarge is allowed one, but I don't have my codex to hand to check....

    Oi- Are you going to do any conversions to make them look more like alliance troops? Or just paint them up all nice? I've seen the movie and the TV show, so I am interested to see how it comes out.... Good luck!

    Cheers,

    I need the bugger so I can see!

    THe powerfist is fine, fair enough giving him one, its not just smurfs that are allowed hidden powerfists after all. he's in a veteran squad dizzyjock so he's allowed officer only items.


    and why can't anyone ever read the bit which says 'combat patrol'... the amount of threads where people bemoan the lack of a 2nd troop/hq choice...


    anyway, pretty nice list really, why not try taking more veterans squads (using that doctrine) instead of stormies/grenadiers. you could have more guns that way. big guns
