    My 1st 40k Army. 1500 points.

    Hello. I'm brand new to 40k and I just drafted up an army to play against a few of my friends that collect as well. I'm going to be playing against Tyranids, Orks and Space Wolves, so I tried to tailor my army so that it had a tactical advantage against them.

    Doctrines:
    Drop-Troops
    Veterans
    Sharp-Shooters
    Storm-Trooper Squads
    Special Weapon Squads


    HQ

    Command Squad: 92
    1 Junior Officer
    -Honorifica
    -Power Weapon
    2 Guardsmen
    -Grenade Launchers
    1 Veteran
    -Medic

    Fire Support Squad: 90
    Sharp-Shooters
    2 Heavy Bolters
    1 Autocannon

    Special Weapons Squad: 110
    3 Lascannons

    Special Weapons Squad: 65
    3 Snipers

    ELITES

    Hardened Veterans: 98
    Drop-Troops
    Veteran Sergant
    3 Flamers

    Hardened Veterans: 109
    Veteran Sgnt
    3 Grenade Launchers

    Storm Troopers: 170
    Deep-Strike
    Melta Bombs
    2 Melta Guns

    TROOPS

    Platoon A: 254

    Command Squad:72
    Junior Officer
    -Power Weapon
    2 Guardsmen
    -Grenade Launchers
    1 Veteran
    -Medic

    Infantry Squad 1:83
    Sergeant
    Heavy Bolter
    Grenade Launcher

    Infantry Squad 1:99
    Sergeant
    Lascannon
    Grenade Launcher


    Platoon B: 254

    Command Squad:72
    Junior Officer
    -Power Weapon
    2 Guardsmen
    -Grenade Launchers
    1 Veteran
    -Medic

    Infantry Squad 1:83
    Sergeant
    Heavy Bolter
    Grenade Launcher

    Infantry Squad 1:99
    Sergeant
    Lascannon
    Grenade Launcher

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Basilisk: 125
    Indirect Fire

    Leman Russ:155
    Hull-Mounted Heavy Bolter
    Side-Mounted Heavy Bolters

    Grand Total: 1522

    I'm thinking of removing the Storm-Troopers and getting another Veteran squad, as Troopers seem to be a massive point-sinks, But i'm still a noob and I probably made countless mistakes while compiling my list so my opinion doesnt count for much.

    What do you guys think?

    Snipers can be useful vs the big nid monsters but for only 20 points more you could get a heavy
    support squad with 3 heavy bolters which can cut down most nid troops aslo dont mix weapons in your Fire Support Squads as its best to keep them for one roll

    If your going to take a Veteran then give him a stanard bearer as these help with your Ld and cost the same as the medic

    Drop troop Flamers arent the best weapon as you could scatter and drop you out of range, drop the squad to 5 men and get some plsama in there, same gos for your other vet squads

    Leman Russ tanks sould be taken in twos as it gives your tanks more chance of getting a shot off as one tank out in the open will be taken out fast but two tanks will make it harder for the enemy to stop them fireing

    If you want to Deep-Strike the storm troops then drop the squad size down to 5 men as next turn they will die anyway so why waste the points, same for the Melta Bombs as they cant assault the turn they come down

    it seems like you forgot one guy in each command section, there are 4 guys and the officer, not 3
