So this is pretty much my entire collection at the moment,  apart from a valkyrie and 6 converted rough riders. All the tanks are magnetised with removable sponsons though.

Any thoughts? what could I swap with the limitations listed above? what should I look to pick up next?

  1. I think that this list has some serious potential. I can't wait to see how it works out on the table top.

  2. Hi Hewkers,

    I followed your link from the Bolter and Chainsword AM page. I spent my lunch half-hour following your posts. I love the blog! It’s been fun watching your army grow and seeing your list change over time.

    I reviewed your latest list and it looks good. My only suggestion is to shift your 2 missile launcher veteran squads into a less static role by adding 3 melta, 3 plasma, and/or 3 flamer weaponry to them. For example, in your game against your chaos opponent last year you could have sent these veterans out as a speed bump rather than using them as a static unit. Doing so would have delayed his advance, thus giving your other units more time to shoot and redeploy to your left and front.

    Other than this, your list looks great!

    Good luck with the list!

    P.S. My favorite model in your list is your kit-bashed vulture. That thing is very creative and very impressive! Your veterans' conversion from admech rangers is my next most favorite conversion--those chaps look superb(although-I might be wrong- butit looks like you might have missed some mould lines on top of their heads).

    1. Glad you like the blog!
      Thanks for the advice, ive actually been changing it around a little since writing this one, I will take your advice on board and post a version 2 update of the list soon.
      And damn about the mould lines, will take a look, amd be more cautious next time. Glad you like the conversions though, the vulture was good fun to build and I just kind of 'winged it' excuse thd pun, so gladm I you like the way it turned out!
