I'd be going up against T7 or T8 most of the time, so that's what the Sentinels would be focusing on. Marbo will have to find his way into another list I guess haha Poor bastard, I really want to field him at some point. Thanks for your comments

Executioner is up to you. If does put out a fair amount of shots, great for the wraithlords and wraithknights. But If he only runs one or two I would almost stick with bombarding them with the russes i no other targets are open and gang them with the vets, vets shouldnt have a big issue dealing with them,
Russes it is! I wouldn't have enough for an Executioner anyway, ah well, another time

Gotta be honest here, my army looks the same as the first with all carapace. Firstly make one of those Leman Russes into an exectioner and it does wonders. Secondly, yes, there are very valid arguments for not taking carapace but I have to point out that a majority of basic weapons are AP 5 these days(bolters, pulse rifles, etc). Dont take stormtroopers, they suck horribly. Those sentinels need to have autocannons badly for the sole reason of a guardsman's OK ballistic skill. Lascannons will statistically get 1 1/2 hits where as autocannons will get 3. If you doubt anything I say look at my battle record.

I'm really not a big fan of sentinals, It's like a weapons team that costs more, has the same BS and armour that can be glanced (unless it's armoured and then you loose the point of having one) by Str 4 weapons. Have you got any other Mech you can take other than a sentinel.

Just a personal opinion.

It is said that the guttural sound of Dwarfs bellowing Grungni’s name is enough to make an Elf’s knees knock and a Goblin turn a sickly shade of yellow!

I took the carapace armor originaly because of that AP5 problem, and the fact that my opponent uses Eldar and the Dire Avenger's gun (if I recall correctly) Is AP 5, which shreds them if they're ever out of their transport. He takes a Wraithknight (even on such low point lists, with makes T8 with a 3+ and occasionally a 5++ hard to get rid of), which is why the Sentinels are configured with Lascannons. I'd rather concentrate on it with both a Leman Russ and the Sentinels to crush the bastard before it wrecks something really important.

Nothing else sadly. Since Imperial Guard's being released in a month or two I've stopped buying them until the new releases. Heavy Weapons Squads require a Platoon, and since that's not easily made mech I'll stick with what I've got. I can live with the fact that Sentinels would be shot to hell in a couple of turns, but if they manage to get some wounds off of that Wraithknight then I'd be happy.
