OH MAN. I totally thought you were using the Steel Host formation because of the name and the 'Steel Host HQ' and such. So this is a Combined Arms Detachment then and has nothing to do with the formation?

@ntaw Can't it be both? It's the Steel Host Formation, which can be used in a CAMS, correct? I want to be bound and use the formation rule of Preferred Enemy. Am I missing something?

Coteaz

How about that? Drop the vets add Coteaz, make him the warlord. Can he give blessings to the tanks, like ignore cover?

From the OP, you can run it as CAD but won't get the PE bubble effect. But pask himself does have PE. Plasmacutioners love PE though. In that instance I'd probably trade out the Punisher for the Exe since the PE benefits the whole unit and tank orders can let them split their fire.

Yeah sorry man, @ntaw and @christopher.dean are right.

Unbound may be a problem for your meta, but the CAD way of running that would be fine though you'd lose the preferred enemy, or drop the special and heavy weapons from the squads, throw in a L1 Psyker inquisitor for divination and use one squad to hide on objectives in cover and the other to protect your psyker as he sends the tanks into beast mode.

Your second one looks nice too, Coteaz will be a major target but if you play with enough LOS blocking terrain and un-ruined buildings/bunkers, maybe that won't be a problem?

What about running Pask without HB and bringing a Vindicare Assassin instead of Coteaz?

I like both of these Assassin and Inquisitor ideas. My definite preference goes towards the Assassin though, that Temple is even my favorite! I have never been let down by a Vindicare.

Jeeze, I have to get one more Leman Russ so that I can try out this formation.

Not a huge fan of the Vindicare; he's super useful, yes, but he's such a high target priority and he's so fragile.

Probably less fragile than the 3 Servitors and Inquisitor though, so fair enough. His Turbo-Penetrator Rounds (pretty much the only ones I ever use) are good, but the lack of Tank Hunters can make him a very unreliable tank hunter.

I don't know if a Culexus would work without any means of transport, but between his size, his Etherium, and the fact that you can't get that many guns to shoot him with at 1000pts, I'd be tempted to run him instead as currently the list just keels over and dies if you fight an Invisible unit of Centurions (or Invisible anything, really).
