If the final version of this list has a few leftover points like this they'll go to bolters on the vet sgt's.
I went for a sort of "hammer and anvil" theme with this list. The infantry deploys into the most opportune position/objective while my tanks are mobile problem solvers. Or I can deploy my troops as normal, keep the leman's in back, and cover my flanks with the other vehicles. And my drop squads are on call to deal with indirect threats and extra hard targets. The only thing that concerns me is leadership, hence all the vet sgts and the pseudo-vox net.

If the tanks succeed, then victory follows.
Nice list, are you trying to use up points as melta bombs arnt needed on your vets as 3 metla guns sould take out any tanks that they drop near
Drop the metlas on the command squad as you dont need them when you have the vets and get two plasmas in there so you can dive by and blast some marines
drop the Vet Sgtx4 as you have voxs for Ld and with all the points saved maybe get some more squads or some sentinals with lascannons as they wont be shot at caz of your other tanks and can snipe enemy armour from the back of the line

FF7: ABOUT RANDOM BATTLES
You need more bodies on the ground. With guard, you need to totally outnumber your opponent with either tanks or men. You need either an armored company or more than 100 guardsmen in a 2000 point game.

they took the words right out of my mouth
Well, lets see... he's got 6 tanks on the board to start with, so I'm guessing the need to 'outnumber' his opponent is significantly reduced. Add in the fact that every troop he has can either infiltrate or deepstrike, and I reckon he's actually got quite a flexible and competitive list on his hands.Originally Posted by Alcibiades
How is having more than 100 guardsmen on the table going to win him the game? Some people, myself included, prefer lists that combine tanks and elite units over the hoardes of guardsmen route. Not suprisingly, lists of this type can and do perform well. In certain scenarios, for example recon missions, they actually far out perform standard hoarde type lists due to the advantage in mobility they possess. In standard seek and destroy style missions, they still offer many advantages over hoarde lists in their ability to better adapt to situations as they arise on the battlefield.
Blanket statements like yours dont help people build better lists. Offer up a few reasons why he should consider more bodies, and what advantages more bodies may provide over having more vehicles and then make suggestions that would reflect this view. Its criticism of that kind that help people develop their army.
