Starting a sucker punch Nazi themed army

Post by madmaxemu » Sat Aug 25, 2012 9:14 pm

Hi guys.
An idea was born after watching this movie, called sucker punch.
Those zombie nazis are sick. And I would love to bring them on the table.
Therefore I looked around and Forgeworld has the DKoK which are great models.

Now that this is good for the infantrie I would like to build a list. A starting list with about 1000 points.

I want a tank heavy list. But I also need mobile infantrie that can kill some terminators or other 2+ armor saves. (plasma+chimera).

What I like to play is a vendetta or vulture a Hellhound or variant a macharius, Hydra, Manticore.
I am absolutly new to imperial guard and I have big problems with HQ and Troops options. I don't know how to fit them together.
I need some take on the hand for the first steps. I hope to develop fastly an idea how to build a list. Even with army builder I dont se it.

I would apreciate if you could help to form a list for my request.
Chaos: 5000 points
Necrons: 5400 points
Dark Eldar 2340 points (since 17.3.2012) (3W/1L/0D)

Looks nice no idea about the first thing thy FW? I personally like to give the vets carapace 4+ plus plasma is nice vs 5+
So you mean to tell me you don't fear the things that go bump in the night? While you're in the woods? Foolish.

Nice list, I'd say consider the advice given. Now for the over all look since it is Nazi themed you have to thread carefully. Paint them up in the different German uniforms, etc so you get your look across. You should probably stay away from painting on the swastika though since that could cross the line. Having WWII themed guard is always cool but you have to tread lightly when you associate your models with a group like this.

First of all I never want to field them on tournaments. I play with about 12 Friends in my group so no issues there.

Secondly I expected you to go more into detail on my list. What I found out is that Mecharius is a super heavy tank so it can be played only in apo games. Then what should I do with the commissar. Field him alone standing on the field?

Does Aegis provide 4+ cover save to tanks?

and is this list really playable? Only 2 Troops choices wont be enough for the most games.

It would be great if someone would take the time and check the list thoroughly.

You won't even need to think about swastika's. Sucker punch didn't have any nazi's. It was World War I, not 2, they were just Germans, and they looked a LOT like the Death Korps of Krieg.
