    platoon:
    4xPlasmagun, Junior LP/CCW, C/L

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Tactics is to infiltrate into cover, shoot, shoot, burn closing enemies with chimaera grenadiers, if something charge then countercharging withrough riders (or prevent charge with them)
    Sentinels shoul move out of LOS to capture objectives, spec teams and HQ are covert ops team to operate behind enemy lines/flank making mess
    I know that my Leadership is weak and also that Rough riders are weaker than allyed DH marines but I like those models ;-)

    Some other comments or experiences with such army?

    Cameoline can't be confered to Grenadiers, they don't count as Guard Infantry.

    HQ
    4xMeltagun, LP/CCW junior, C/L

    You dont need 4 meltaguns in this squad as each man costs 16 points and the enemy will be gunning for you command squads anyway so dont make them a even bigger target then they allready are. If you really want to use this unit then use the drop troop doctrine which is free and drop them in.


    3xLC antitank C/L
    3xAC firesupport C/L

    Some say that lascannon squads cost to much and are to easy to kill but with Cameleoline they may just work here.

    6xSpec team, 2xmeltagun, Democharge, C/L

    This squad costs too much and will never make it within range of the enemy even with Cameleoline,you really need to use the drop troop doctrine with these guys as that way you dont need to run your guys past the enemys guns and hope. Aslo vets so this job a lot better and for around the same cost. Vets aslo have a better BS. Use the vetaren doctrine so you can take 3 squads.

    1xSentinel AC

    Nice

    TROOPS
    5xGrenadiers, 2xFlamer, Vet.sgt, Chimaera HF,HHF, xtra armour, smoke

    Flamers are nice but they are wasted on Grenadiers as your not making use of there good BS,plsama guns would work better here.


    4xPlasmagun, Junior LP/CCW, C/L

    To many weapons in this squad! A few heavy bolter shots and thats 80 points gone in one turn. Give this squad one plsama gun and a banner to help with Ld.

    7xLasgun, plasmagun, Lascannon team, vet.sgt. LP/CCW C/L
    7xLasgun, plasmagun, Lascannon team, vet.sgt. LP/CCW C/L

    Nice but if you use Cameleoline then you must give them TO ANY SQUAD THAT CAN TAKE IT so you need to give it to these guys and your command squads. The Grenadiers are fine as they can't take it anyway.

    FAST ATTACK
    Sentinel LC
    5xRough riders, lance, vet.sgt. lance+power weapon
    5xRough riders, lance, vet.sgt. lance+power weapon

    I like the single Sentinel as the enemy would need to waste a whole squads firepower just to take out one Sentinel. Rough riders are fine but maybe lose the ver sgt and power weapons as the squad only has 5 men and a round of shooting from say a squad of marines would kill off this squad before you have the chance to use them. Only take them in full size squads.


    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Thats the best set of weapons you could give it as you still have something to use when you move.
