Default 1850pts IG Cavalry List

Hello everyone

So I have been slowly working on a Household Cavalry Imperial Guard army (Will always be IG too me). For that I am using the Death Korps Siege Regiment from the Siege of Vraks Imperial Armour. Now I know Death Riders are not the most competitive but that does not mean the list cannot be as competitive as possible. Now I do not want any Infantry. I would really appreciate as much feedback as possilble, especially regarding the vehicle composition

Death Rider Squadron Detachment - 470 Points

Death Rider Company Command Squad - 180 Points
Death Rider Colonel

Death Korp Death Rider Platoon - 170 Points

5 Death Riders

*If you know anyway of turning these into Thunderbolts that would be great, I currently do not know how to within the formation structure

There we have it, really appreciate some advice and thoughts
Thank you in advance

Formations are pretty straightforward, you're allowed to choose from the units listed. FW units are rarely (if ever, really) allowed as unit choices for GW-issued Formations. The Emperor's Spear Aerial Company lists Valkyries and Vendettas as the options, ergo those are the allowed Flyer choices.

That being said, if you play using the Death From the Skies supplement this allows you to take Flyer Wings of Thunderbolts in a Air Superiority Detachment and gain the requisite bonuses.

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

Glad to be of help! It's always nice when you get to play the models you like.
