    500 pts fun/mean

    I'm curious as to how this would work... any comments?

    HQ-
    Brother-Captain
    61pts

    Troops-
    7xStormtroopers w/ 2x Grenade Launchers
    90pts

    7xStormtroopers w/ 2x Grenade Launchers
    90pts

    Heavy Support-
    Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, Extra Armor
    130pts

    Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, Extra Armor
    130 pts

    TOTAL: 501pts

    I think everyone can kind of see what I'm going for here... Lots Of Dreadnoughts! With the assault cannons, they can deal with anything that gets near them, and the stormtroopers are cheap and (hopefully) effective with their 4x Grenade Launchers. The BC can either Deep Strike or set up normally, at your choice.

    To start a BC can't have melta bombs, he is in terminator armor, and second isn't a psycannon on a terminator (3 strength 6 AP 4 assault 36" shots versus 3 strength 6 ap 4 shots that are only range 24?) I think if you are really cheesing it out, maybe drop some stormies or the launchers for a psycannon (and if you really want to keep numbers maybe the extra armor) I just think it will do the same damage are greater range, is more durable, and can hide behind your other units.

    Nice list, just a couple of tweaks....

    Nothing wrong here, but I always prefer a psycannon on this guy for superior dakka power. And, actually, you can afford it since you've overspent by exactly a psycannon's cost on your dreads. (See below.)

    I don't really see any purpose behind GLs in a DH list. The templates are smallish and weak, and not terribly effective unless you happen to be facing gaunts or IG. I would always prefer plasma guns for the price; they perfectly complement the rest of the squad's hellguns.

    The only thing wrong here is that each dread, as you've outfit them, costs 115 pts, not 130. Leaving you enough recovered points to put a psycannon on your BC!
    ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

    Ok, seeing as how I spent a lot more points than I thought, and with the suggestions in mind, here's the new, revised list.

    HQ-

    Brother-Captain w/ Psycannon
    91pts

    Troops-

    7x Stormtroopers w/ 2x Plasma Guns
    90pts

    7x Stormtroopers w/ 2x Plasma Guns
    90pts

    Heavy Support-

    Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, Extra Armor
    115pts

    Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, Extra Armor
    115pts

    TOTAL: 501pts
