this is a very troop heavy list. how do you guys think it will fare? i have yet to try it out. i am stycked on it. any tips, critiscisms or suggestions will be helpful! thanks
if i'm correct, you cant use tigurius unless you're running at least a 1500 point army. i would reccomend a jump pack chaplain instead. rest of the list looks fine beside those. maybe try dropping a tac squad for a dreadnought. good luck with the list.
I'm not sure about whether or not there is a point restriction when using "the greatest psyker in the imperium next to the emperor" but I think it has changed with the new codex--GW got a lot more liberal about allowing use of Special Characters, so maybe it's okay. If it doesn't say in the codex (I haven't read the entry lately) then it's okay to use him. Maybe just a little unfluffy.
If he's not a valid choice, I'd consider a basic captain with PW and BP or SB. Use the extra points to buy a special weapon for the 10 man tacs and upgrade the 5-man missile squad to devs by adding a ML or two.
A dread might be a good idea. If you don't add a chappy with JP, then you might also want to beef up the Assault squad and give them a PF vet sgt.
Now, let's see how many people are going to recommend LST's... ack.
First add 7 LSTs...
Drop a man or two from that 10 man and buy them a special and/or heavy weapon.
Also, I think 5 assualt marines with 2 plasma pistols is 120 not 135. I'd try to get this squad to at least 6 strong, maybe add a powerfist.
i checked the codex for tigurius, its 1500 points or more. if you want a psyker that badly, take a souped up librarian.
