1000 tourny army

My local Games Workshop is running a 1000 point tournament in 6 weeks.
There is no comp for it with the manager pushing the local kids to min/max their lists i expect to face some real filth. I normally try to run more fluffly friendly lists, but with prizes up for grabs I want to go in with something thats got a bit of teeth to it. I was orignally thinking of doing a 3 wraithlord eldar army, but decided it would be cheaper financially to do a 3 tank army.


Company Command Squad
3 Plasma Guns
Total 95


Infantry platoon

Platoon command Squad
2 Grenade Launchers
Total 45

Infantry Squad
Power weapon
Total 100

Infantry Squad
Power Weapon
Total 65

Veteran Squad
Las cannon
Total 90


Leman Russ Battle Tank
Heavy Flamer
Total 150

Leman Russ Battle Tank
Heavy Flamer
Total 150

Leman Russ Battle Tank
Heavy Flamer
Total 150

Grand Total 845

So with 155 points left i am split between more troops or a vendetta.

personally i would add more troops.

you do not have any chimmeras for them to hide in so they will die VERY quickly.

if you have the ability i would take 3 meltas (or proxy them) in the vet squad and drop the lascannon.

i would take autocannons in the infantry squads & in each command squad (the platoon should take 4 flamers other wise.

the CCS should take carapace armor & a medic if you plan to keep the plasma weapons. i think meltas & a lascannon (in a chimera/proxy) would do nicely.

basically i think that you need more guardsmen (or chimeras) so you dont get killed fast.
