It's totally illegal... you cannot have units of <10 tacticals with specail or heavy weapons and you cannot have 3 HQ choices in an army.

Other then that I would say scrap the LCR, they are very good but you have nothing nasty to put inside it so its kinda useless (never, never take LRs just for their own weapons- they are principally transports).

I agree i would boost the tactical squads up to 10 men so that i could have heavy and special weapons. I would scrap some of the HQ's as you can't have all three and the Land Raider Crusader would go. I would then use the points to buy some anti tank fo example a predator or devastator squad and see if you have enough points to invest in some Terminators or assualt marines.

errrr ...

step 1 - buy updated codex. Lol.

Are you working out of a 4th ed codex? You need to grab the new one. Your ideas on your list might change slightly with the new book.

I would also point out that even with the new 'dex spending a ton on your HQ is a sure way to get you screwed over 9 times out of 10 cause the couple of tooled up characters just cant take on the pts equivelent in enemy units as you spent on them.


All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

The points are still off... I'm guessing you dont have the new dex still- its an absolute must before you start making lists.

I would say my normal- assault termies in transports... or shooty termies DS/on foot. Putting shooty termies in a LRC is either a waste of their guns or taking an extra transport that isnt needed (LRC's guns arent worth its points-it needs to be used as the assault vehicle it is).
Assuming that your LS are actually worth 50pts each that means they have either a heavy flamer or a single heavy bolter... if your gonna use them with heavy bolters give them the 2nd for an extra 10pts. With heavy flamers is very specialised and will only work vs hoards... again I would give it the second HF for +10pts or give it some ranged firepower with a different weapon.

I keep forgetting how hilarious my old posts are.

It's not a question of who will let me, it's a question of who will stop me.
