Default 2000pt BT Rogue Trader

Ok, Im thinking about taking my BT army to an upcoming Rouge Trader. They are all very well painted, but I also want them to be competitive.

Emperors Champion w/ATCNMTO-140

TROOPS

8 man Crusader Squad w/PF, MG, and LRC w/BH-459

7 man Crusader Squad w/PF, MG, frags and Rhino w/smoke-213

7 man Crusader Squad w/PF, MG, and Rhino w/smoke-206

5 man Crusader Squad w/LC, PG, and Razorback w/twin-las-191

The total is 1995. I would like to fit in either assault Terminators or an assault squad, but I cant figure out what to drop. And the LR and Grimaldus has to stay.

Pssst, take Assault Cannon, their rending and do a lot more damage than the Heavy Bolters.

Also drop the seven man sqaud without frags, add two more intiates into the squad in the LRC, add one Neo, is that is were Grimaldus and his 3 are going, unless your champ is going there as well. Then hey just have the 10 man initates. That should give you a few points to play around with.

Well you can do that. I would if you want to have both.

Personally, however, if I had a heavy bolter I would have an assault cannon, just because I ahve ahd more luck with them and popping armor than multimelta. I mean, Multimelta needs 12 inches to get that double pen roll. Where as I get an auto pin with an Assault Cannon that has a possiblity of rolling 4 hits and 4 auto pins with a roll of six.

Still just play test out the different styles and see which one you get more success with.

.......Power of the machine spirit vindies. They are nasty now with BT. They cost as much as a BA one, but in order for people to stop them they have to weapon destroy it or destroy it. They updated the power of the machine spirit for bt so its the same as standard Marines now. You can move 12' and still shoot and always be able to shoot it. Makes them a key target and a bullet spunge

Id say drop the preds and pick up 2 vindies that would leave u 21 points to work with

Id say drop Grim unless your really stuck on him. BT suffer from low LD and rhinos arent super good transports sucks when ur making pin and rite zeal test at ld 8. Pick up a decked out Marshal with lightening claws......hes a beast compared to Grim. And cheaper
