Hey Guys ,

OKay Guys just thought Id throw my latest List up here for some C and C ,
Its Rhino rush list , assault marines , 2 hq fly behind the rhinos cover ,I try to maximise the many auras in the list .

The enemy cant rly fire on what they plz they have no choice but to smash down my rhino walls first . 4 rhinos move 18" pop smoke . not soo easy to destroy without substansial firepower use . by then my assault troops are alrdy in kill range anyway.

The inherent delay of assualt isnt an issue becouse those 5 mans arnt the '''killing units'' there at best the ''mop up'' guys . the assault marines + herohammer just jump over the rhinos turn 2 and charge w/e so theres no delay the rhinos are shield walls not the main attack delivery system , if you catch my drift.

.Things I was considering ,

1:would rly Like an honor Guard unit in here but the only way to take them would be to drop a 10 man assault marine unit not sure if this is a gd idea myself.

2: this army Obviously Likes to get first Turn perhaps a Deamonhunters Inq. would be nice to bring the tarot along? again not sure how to fit him in.

Constructice C and C apreciated and welcome.

I don't like Sanguinor AND Mephiston in the list. I would drop one of them and take a libby. Something other than assault marines would be good to pack a punch, its good you are considering honor guard. Van vets are good too. Honor Guard gives you another bubble, meaning you could drop a Sanguinary Priest.
So out: Sanguinary Priest and Sanquinor
In: Libby and Honor Guard to taste

At 1750 points range you need to be putting down more than four AV11 tanks. I recommend you re-evaluate your HQs & drop a Priest to save points (525 points is 30% of your army on just two models) and spend them on some Baals, Predators or Vindicators, AV13 is far more of a screen and it will also give you some ranged bite, something your list is lacking. If you want to do this kind of list you need to give your opponent hard decisions, so that means at least 6 tanks IMO.

Also, for 5 points more why not take Razorbacks? You're effectively getting a heavy weapon for your RAS.

Good luck
Dallas
