You are telling us that you can bring Land Raiders for 1/2 price (before or after the -35 for RAS?) and you don't have any?

And what exactly is the point of the Sniper Scouts, without a Missile Launcher, or the lack of AT power in the Sanguinary Guard? You know there will be a zillion armored targets and neither of these squads can hurt anything tougher than a Land Speeder.

I would like to point out the great ploy by GW to make you buy many many tanks :) good on them.
I would also be in definite agreement land raiders are a must for this kind of game so I came up with this;
HQ
Librarian, the shield of sanguinius, the sanguine sword

Librarian, the shield of sanguinius, the sanguine sword

Troops
Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Assault marines x5, melta gun, melta bombs
Land Raider Extra Armour

Total = 1475 pts

PS. I took the 35 points after halfing the cost of the land raiders... there's 6 :biggrin:

PEA SOUP :victory:

No use of any sponsors with such rules.

Predator (las sponsors) (68 pts)
Predator (las sponsors) (68 pts)
Predator (las sponsors) (68 pts)

Assault squad (Razorback with TLAC or TL las) 128
Assault squad (Razorback with TLAC or TL las) 128
Assault squad (Razorback with TLAC or TL las) 128
Assault squad (Land Raider) 208
Assault squad (Land Raider) 208
Assault squad (Land Raider) 208

1486 points total.

a) Hell no the infantry will be of use with such rules.
b) Hell no anybody has so many tanks.
c) Somebody will rob the club or loot his friends and would actually field such madness.

Actual advise:
Maybe it's worth taking Corbulo for a reroll of "seize the initiative". It'd be a kind of battle where the the first turn really matters.

For the Emperor and Sanguinius!
