1000 Point Vanilla Help me out

Post by SobieFett » Wed Jun 06, 2012 12:59 pm

HQ
Libby - Might/Zone

Troops
2 x Tac Squads w/ LC Razorback (1 has a dozer blade)
Melta, ML, CM, MB

Elite
Drop Pod Ironclad
+Assault launcher

Fast Attack
2 x Land speeders w/ Typhoon ML / HB


I'm thinking combat squad tac squads. ML sit back and support while CM, M move forward in razorbacks. The razor back with the dozer blade will have the libby. Drop dread into their lines to cause havoc. Suggestions please.

I'd run the razorback as las/plas, I'd drop the melta bombs and add a power weapon to each squad, change ML for lascannon
Elite
Drop Pod Ironclad
+Assault launcher
I'd drop the assault launcher and give him a heavy flamer

You could have a devastatior squad instead, Id drop these to HB, MM to make room for the other changes

Good choice.

I would make only one a lascannon and do one heavy bolter. Then you can use the extra points elsewhere. You can also drop the dozer blade, you only need one once in a blue moon.

So why a heavy bolter, you can get a MM or a ML for free and I prefer both.
And he's paying the same price as a predator with HB for a single speeder

Are your tac squads 5 man? If so they can take the razorback but not the heavy weapons i believe? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I was gonna combat squad my boys up. ML's stay back/ meltas to the front.

@DJ
were you refering to the razorbacks or the tacs. I'm guessing the razor backs so I save the point cost on it.

@Tristan
so do you think i should switch them out for devs? if so what build

It looks good, Id say drop something to make the second tactical have a lc but I can't find 10 points in the list

Go play and tell us how it goes (I'd put the Libby in the HB razor) as your opponent will probably target your las plas best to not put all eggs in one basket

I'd drop the dev's for something else... their only really worth it in SW or BA, or if you get IA that an HQ can make them troops

I would drop the combimelta and the powerweapon, in razorbacks I do not seem them being so useful. Firstly you should not really try to leave the razorbacks. Also 5 men in cc will die even with a powerweapon.

I would go for the las/plas turret on the 'backs. It is more killy and can survive longer.

The iron clad is not to my taste. I feel it will die to melta fire in the turn after it drops.

I would prefer typhoons to the dev. squads.

Good luck :)
