Doesn't the FAQ stop this since it says it gives the model +1 cover save, not any special abilities like stealth

MidnightSun That's probably a better idea.

Put Commissars in three squads, for Hark, Ludd and Novobazky if you want.

Hmm that comes out to 500 points.... I think I can tool up a 1500 list of SW around that...
why are you putting a commissar in the PCS? wouldnt it work better to put him in an IS and blob them?

MidnightSun I meant have a Sniper for Larkin, and then put one guy on a big base to represent Bragg.

Ratlings as the marksman division works too. Personally I'm thinking heavily on adding some Blood Pact to my Chaos army, with some Ogryns to represent once-wrought Stalkers with the Bone 'ead being a twice-wrought and Nork Deddog being a thrice-wrought.

scscofield The way the allies rules work I could take 2 vet squads max, or I could do a platoon and one vet squad. As to the suggestions of who and how to gear I agree with most of what you said but the larkin/bragg one. Unless the sniper rifle was just for show and it just counted as a autocannon HWT. Hmmm I need to dig out the codex and see how much all that costs.

Edit: Was considering a squad of 'counts as ratlings' for a sniper squad. Instead of Marbo.

MidnightSun For the Tanith, I'd go for squads of Imperial Guard Veterans with Forward Sentires (camo-cloaks). If that's unavailable, I'd go for a Platoon Command Squad with attached Commissar with Plasma Pistol, and then five Infantry squads; a flamer/sniper in four squads, a Sniper and Missile Launcher/Autocannon manned by one guy on a big base in the 5th (Larkin and Bragg), a Heavy Bolter in one squad (the stubber crewed by the two hive-girls), and then a mix of Heavy Weapons in the other squads.

Also add a Lord Commissar with Camo-Cloak and Power Sword. Fluff-wise, they all have their own which is what provides the Stealth, but in game that's not an option so you'd have to run it as an attached Lord Commissar for the buff.

Oh, and take Marbo for Cuu, Mkvenner or Eszrah.

scscofield Since the fluff of the game was not what I was asking about I will return to what I was discussing in the first place.

I have SW and I plan to do IG as allies. I was thinking of doing a small force of IG modeled after the Tanith First and Only. Most likly 2k points or under and I have been trying to decide how big of a IG force I should make while still having the SW be the primary.

In the long run I will probably expand the IG army to a full size army if I like how they play. This is never going to see the light of a tourny beyond the small get together and have pizza and beer tournys my FLGS do.

If your worried about the fluff of it, my armies are not actual armies from 40k. They are count as 'codex x' armies. If I ever bothered to do a real tourny I would fully flesh the made up fluff of them.


So Tanith are light infanty that like snipers, flamers, and auto cannons. I can probably make a decent representation of them with 1 large platoon? How many points would the various people here think of doing in a 2k game? Plan would probably be to start them on the board on average and bring in my SW via DP.
