2k IG blob/arty mix...

Alrighty so have to put thought into some possible ways of spending xmas cash hehe. Thinking about mixing up an IG list I had earlier and beef it up some.

2,000 Points Even

HQ: 160 Points
CCS - RS, VC, HWT (Mortar), MoO, Chimera (Mlas/HF)

Troops: 1,135 Points
Meat Shield Infantry Platoon
- PCS - Flamers x4, Chimera (Mlas/HF)
- Blob x30 - Commissar (PW), VC, Flamers x3, PW x3, MB x3
Dakka Infantry Platoon
- PCS - Flamers x4, Chimera (Mlas/HF)
- Blob x30 - Commissar, VC, GL x3, HWT (AC) x3
- HWS - Mortars
- HWS - Mortars
Veteran Squad - MG x3, Chimera (Mlas/HF)
Veteran Squad - MG x3, Chimera (Mlas/HF)

Fast Attack: 225 Points
Armoured Sentinel - PC
Armoured Sentinel - PC
Armoured Sentinel - PC

Heavy Support: 480 Points

So I know folks might /slashwrists for 3x manticores, but they are just so good at being so awesomely evil hehe. Also know folks might say lolwtfgtfo for 3x sents with PC but upgraded from the Mlas for nice blasts and to have something that can specifically deal with TEQ (w/o any gets hot! rolls to worry about) and can double as other rolls like tarpitting or transport popping or general horde blasting. Meat blob sets up in front of the dakka blob with the mortars behind. CCS is in mobile pill box tucked away out of sight. Thinking for the most part I'll keep the PCS and chimeltas back as reactionary units (to assaults and deepstrikes) and let all the blast goodness run its course. Even though I'm probably keeping all 5x chimeras back I still kept Mlas/HF's to maintain mobility as needed. Not a problem though to make some or all of them Mlas/HB for more static fire.

I could change the PC's to ML for S8 vs AV and still have blasts equal to mortars as well. Then I could get either PG's for the dakka platoon or perhaps an OotF.

Oh well, thoughts, suggestions, advice, C&C, etc, etc are always appreciated.

Good list overall...some things I'm not all that keen on, but that's personal preference for ya.

Tactical plan seems fine...bare in mind that those Sentinels will be a priority taeget IF you keep all your other Vehicles back (Sentinels tend to not get shot at so much if other vehicles are within range).

Best of luck with the list
