Army list for my game on Friday

The 409th prepare for battle!!




I have a 2000pt game coming up on Friday. It is against either Dark Angels or Orks, and i have never played the chap before, so I have no idea what to expect.

I never like list tailoring anyway and prefer to go for an all comers list.

So this is what I have come up with:

+ HQ +

Company Command Squad [Carapace Armour, Veteran w/ Flamer, Veteran w/ Laspistol & CCW]
····Chimera [Autocannon, Heavy Flamer]
····Company Commander [Carapace Armour]
····Master of Ordnance [Close Combat Weapon]
····Veteran w/ Medi-pack
····Veteran w/ Vox-caster

+ Troops +

Veterans [Grenadiers, Veteran w/ Flamer, 6x Veteran w/ Lasgun, Veteran w/ Meltagun]
····Chimera [Autocannon, Heavy Flamer]
····Veteran Sergeant
····Veteran w/ Vox-caster

Veterans [Grenadiers, Veteran w/ Flamer, 6x Veteran w/ Lasgun, Veteran w/ Meltagun]
····Chimera [Autocannon, Heavy Flamer]
····Veteran Sergeant
····Veteran w/ Vox-caster

Veterans [Grenadiers, Veteran w/ Flamer, 6x Veteran w/ Lasgun, Veteran w/ Meltagun]
····Taurox [Twin linked Autocannon]
····Veteran Sergeant
····Veteran w/ Vox-caster

+ Fast Attack +

Vulture Gunship [Twin-linked Punisher Cannons]

+ Heavy Support +

Manticore [Camo Netting, Heavy Flamer]

Wyvern Batter
····Wyvern [Camo Netting, Heavy Flamer]

+ Formation +

Emperor's Fist Armoured Company 

[Enginseer]

····Leman Russ Squadron
········Punisher [2x Heavy Bolter, Heavy Bolter]

····Leman Russ Squadron
········Exterminator [2x Heavy Bolter, Heavy Bolter]

····Leman Russ Squadron
········Demolisher [Heavy Bolter]

····Tank Commander
········Command Vanquisher [Knight Commander Pask, Lascannon]
········Executioner [2x Plasma Cannons, Lascannon]

I will probably stick the Enginseer in with the command squad. Need to be mindful to keep him within 6'' for the 'roll twice and pick the lowest' on the damage table!

Also, need to consider the BS4 bubble of the commander for units in 12'' most likely use this for the Punisher, although he will need to go forward to make use of his weapon.

I know a lot of you will say Pask is wasted in a Vanquisher, but I love the look of the tank, and think it is quite fitting that the Tank Commander will be the tank hunter himself, plus Pask really lends himself to this roll!

As always, comments and criticism welcome.

  1. I worry about the veterans only having a single meltagun. They're not a reliable threat to anything. Consider moving all of your meltaguns to a single squad and distribute the flamers amongst the rest. Now you have one squad that can reliable mess something up.

    1. That is a good point, although then 'all my eggs are in one basket'
      is there no merit to having them multi role?
