HQ: Tank Commander - Leman Russ Vanquisher /w Lascannon & MultiMelta Sponsons - Camo netting
Leman Russ Executioner /w Lascannon & MultiMelta Sponsons - Camo netting

Primaris Psyker (Mastery Lvl 1)

Troop 1: Vet Squad /w Melta x2 - Chimera


Troop 2: Vet Squad /w Melta x2 - Chimera

750 points.

So I have a list like this at 1250 that preformed very well against space marines. And this was my first attempt to scale it down. The prim Psyker is there to give the tanks twin-linked.

My main question is do I have too many points sunk into my tanks at this point level?
First post, thanks in advance for any replies!

Two Leman Russes at 750 points seem quite a lot indeed, but now that everything scores in the new edition it may not be that bad as it used to be. I personally would put the camo netting on the chimeras though. They have less armor and since they are delivering meltas into close range, they really need all the protection they can get.

@ModernMouse seems that your post is perfectly visible!
about the list: 2 tanks are good, only thing i'd advise against is to super pimp them. you basically could get 2 wyvern, removing all the sponsons and the lascannons...also, consider that a single meltagun can wash away 1/4 of your army...not so good.
I'd say take the tanks naked and add some deadly wyverns (3 if you manage that) at this low point set they can be brutal.

Do not currently own any Wyverns but my group is okay with proxys.

What I do have however, are a ton of HWT/Vets/Chims/Russ/Bask

Any Suggestion from that pool?

So the changes I just made are:

Took all the bling off the Tanks. Added a Vet Squad /w x2 Plasma - No Chimera.
Figured they could lag behind and cap basepoints if needed/support tanks.
