”Taking you up on your offer to look over lists, etc, I’ve got a few. I’m curious to hear other people’s input on as I’m just not 100% sure with them. The first list is Guard which I’m working on for a club, world cup type, event.

HQ:
CCS: Medic, 3 plasmas in chimera, heavy bolter swapped with heavy flamer, company
commander, melta bombs.

TROOPS:
4x Vet squads, 2 come with 2 flamers and heavy flamer, other 2 come with 3 melta
guns, all come in chimeras with heavy flamer hull mount

FAST ATTACK :
2 single Vendettas

HEAVY SUPPORT:
3x Hydra flak tanks
1x Manticore, heavy flamer mount
2x Medusas, closed top, heavy flamer mounts

James Jennings”

Hey James , okay lets see here. We got Vet Spam Guard. In your email, you pointed out the lack of a psychic battle squad as a problem. You are bang on. Those guys are awesome and should be in here. I’ll get them in but a few other things jump out to me.

You know those guys who always seem to roll that one when driving their vehicles over dangerous terrain? Who always roll the 1 when they need to pass a 2+ save?

Yeah, I’m one of those guys. 😀
I really don’t like plasma guns, they’re just not goddamn safe. ^^

Your troop are vets and form the core of this army. The 2 all melta squads are grand. I’m not a fan of the full flamer units though. I see where your coming from, anti-GEQ/cover huggers and all, but that can be done in better ways in my opinion.

Vendettas are awesome, why not take 3? ^^
There’s too much stuff going on in the heavy support department. I’ll try to streamline it a bit.

This is my take on it:

Company Command Squad – 120
Astropath, meltagun x4
Chimera : 55
Heavy flamer

Psyker Battle Squad : 80
Overseer, Psyker x6
Chimera : 55
Heavy flamer

1.Veterans : 100

3.Veterans : 100

4.Veterans : 100

Manticore : 160

Total : 1750

So, there you go, James. I hope its of some use to you. I’m sure the other contributors will chip in their own .02 euro in the comments section below, as well.
