Ok so think will be our first game of 6th edition. We have decided to not have fortifications and I will be the only one with a flyer. I believe he will take GK and IG as the ally (KG will be henchmen heavy)
So my list
HQ: Lib with termi armour, 2 powers (gonna have a go at swapping these to see what other powers are like so Idea on which ones to go for would be great - playing in 11 hours time) and a storm shield
Elite: dread with 2 x TL autocannon + drop pod with DML and beacon
Elite: 7 termis with CML ( wanted to try them instead of assult ones I usually field)
Troops: Tactical squad with ML, flamer and PW with Razorback with las/plas combo.
Troops: tactical squad with ML, flamer, PF in drop pod.
FA: Land speeder typhoon
FA: Stormtalon - thought I would try Skyhammer to see what it is like.
FA 6 man bike squad with 2 meltas and a PF + attack bike with MM
HS: 2 x vindicators
HA Fireknife but add iridium armour (the 2+ will help ignore all those PW he will have) and a shield drone
Elite: 2 x fireknifes
Troops: 10 firewarriors in devilfish with disruption pods
HS: 2 broadsides
It is about 1900 points of SM and 600 points of Tau.
What do you think. This is a fun game so the aim is to test out new rules not win. I like the idea of Allies as making an army is now so much more intersting.
