    help with army list

    I was thinking about making a pure footlogging armywith as much boyz as possible, and I 've come up with this:
    Warboss(and wargear)
    -104pts

    21 boyz +nob(and wargear)
    234

    21 boyz +nob(and wargear)
    234

    21 boyz +nob(and wargear)
    234

    806pts

    I need something else to make 1000pts, more boyz would be great, but I want that squad to take down tanks at a distance. So my question is: could you suggest a squad of boyz that can take down tanks at a distance? Thanks.

    tankbustas as far as i could guess do that as well as just arming all your squads with rockets. which is what i think is best for a footslogging force. you'd get 3 or 4 turns of shooting once you're in range, so you would be able to take out tanks with 3 squads of 3 rockets.

    This should (and will be moved) in the army lists section.

    Lots of boys are good, but make sure to pack in enough ranged to cover your anti-armour and to pose some threat at a range. If you don't then some armies will just run circles around you while firing at you and you will do nothing but move your piddly 6" a turn.

    Also, I wouldn't go overboard with this in 1000 points, but I would still put in some support unit(s) [i.e. killa kanz or warbuggies] to give your army some diversity and tactical flexibility.

    Hope I helped, good luck and have fun.

    yeah, even though you want only boyz, things like some buggies with TL rokkits or a trukk boy squad or two are pretty essential in my book. of course boyz can do the same thing as the buggies, but not anywhere near as well or with enough manueverablity. trukk's cant have their job replaced by any boyz excepting stormboyz, but there too they do worse.
