500 Point Guard list
I need a critique on this 500pt Guard list I am playing for a tourney.
Commander w Boltgun
Grenade Launcher x2
Sgt w Bolt Pistol
Chimera (normal loadout)
3 Plasma Guns
Hydra Flak Tank
My only hesitation is the Flak Tanks performance. Many people I play with are trying to convince me it won't hold up or will underwhelm. I always have good luck with it, as long as the Armor it faces stays below 12, which other than Land Raiders I can't think of anything that would fit in a 500pt list that packs Armor 13 or 14. I also tend to knock down a lot of infantry with it. I had a list that supported a Vendetta, but it was the only vehicle besides a Armored Sentinel w Autocannon. If I add the Vendetta back in, I lose the Chimera and the Hydra.
I guess my thought was more shots, and that two lascannons and 3 meltaguns should hold the anti-armor slots and wouldn't need the high profile Vendetta. I also normally don't take camo netting since its expensive, but my thoughts there was to get the Hydra into cover, and position the CCS and Vet Squad w the Plasma Guns/Lascannon HWT near it, but outside of 6" of it. That way the two squads could provide support for it, and I could still issue the Bring It Down order to either squad. I was going to either use the Meltagun Vets in the Chimera to pop incoming armor to soften the targets for the other two squads, or to go after other armored targets. What are my fellow Heretics thoughts?
"Take a moment, please. Ponder the depths of your insignificance."
"It would be disappointing if you were unable to overcome this simplest of defenses. Hilarious, but disappointing."
