Dang dude, I think it might have just come down to me having more horde-killing stuff in my Leman Russ tanks. Orks don't seem to have much that makes tanks explode over being wrecked, I pretty much just left my Chimeras up front where they were and emergency disembarked troops out the back. I didn't mean to do a gunline so much but it turned into that when he assaulted T2 that's for sure. The LRs were pretty much just in the corner killing the Orks as they spilled over the wreckage of my Chimeras and Bane Wolf.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

That sounds like a good game though! Also, sounds very cinematic.

My decimated front line as the Orks continued to swarm over it:



Both me and my opponent agreed it was a crazy fun match, while he was sad to lose we both had so much fun. If I had that Manticore I don't think it would have been nearly as balanced of a match (considering I tabled him with 700+ points left), I would have been peeling stuff off the table with a barrage weapon on top of what I already had to dish out. We're totally going to rematch regardless.

I want a Basilisk so bad. Made a swanky 2k list as an extension of this one that includes it:

HQ

Pask in a Punisher - hull and sponson heavy bolters
Executioner - hull heavy bolter, sponson plasma cannons
Company Command Squad - carapace armour all around, Chimera

Troops

3x Veteran squads - 3x meltaguns, carapace armour, and Chimera for each

Fast Attack

Vendetta

Bane Wolf

Heavy Support

2x Battle Tanks - hull and sponson heavy bolters

Basilisk

Manticore


Comes out to 1998. Any thoughts on that one? I might have found a used and unpainted Basilisk at a respectable price, but I'm not sure once I drive out and back it's worth it. Either way, she's coming soon!

Doesn't look too bad mate, but what's the purpose of the company command squad? It doesn't have special weapons to make it effective as a combat unit, and all your troops being mechanised means that they won't have a target for orders either.

Consider dropping them for camo cloak sniper vets to park on an 'in cover' objective?

I...guess....uh....OK so there's one Chimera painted red and gold to signify that it was the lead tank, but my plasma Vets are red/yellow too so I can totally run four Vet squads instead of 3 and a CCS. They do end up getting a few orders out though as my squads disembark to mow down the enemy. Since I play them vanilla my opponents have pretty much ignored them in games right up until I dish out some tasty orders at just the right moment.

Pretty much all fluff and no game-sense on that decision. But hey....I'm getting a super cheap Basilisk tomorrow! Here's a rewrite of the list with four Vet squads and a Sentinel for lols. I figure the gold bastard can hang out with the Chimeras trying to pop transports at range before the squishy Guardsmen get out to melt some face. I also upped Pask's armour dealings because I'm sick of dreadnoughts getting all up in his grill and hoping for good Rending rolls.

HQ

Pask in a Punisher - hull lascannon, sponson multi-meltas
Executioner - hull lascannon, sponson plasma cannons
Troops

3x Veteran squads - 3x meltaguns, carapace armour, and Chimera for each

Veteran squad - 3x plasma guns, carapace armour, Chimera

Fast Attack

Vendetta

Sentinel - lascannon

Heavy Support

2x Battle Tanks - hull and sponson heavy bolters

Basilisk - camo netting

Manticore


2k on the nose this time.

Nice! I think this list will play really well, and should be a good game against a variety of foes.
