So, I was reading WarZone Damnos recently.
And I came across a formation...

and with 7th ed, I can field them in the regular game no problem...


its 1 Captain
and 2 units of Veterans (either Sternguard or Vanguard)

I totally want to do this now!

I was thinking:
1 quad of 10 Sternguard in a Rhino

1 quad of 10 Vaguard, with jet packs.
+ The Captain.

They Heroic Intervention in and cc whatever needs cc-ing.

My question to you is:
Is this cool?
Does this work?
How would you arm/equip this?

At 1150 points its nowhere near enough models. two Troops and an HQ would get slaughtered. My basic SM list at 500 Points is 2 tac squads and an HQ usually chappy or Captain. And if find myself really struggling against horde opponents and vehicles. at 1150 points its doesn't need to be a horde army. Your opponent will be able to field so many extra troops its not even funny. never mind the fancy stuff your veterans have on them. this is feasible in a Apocalypse game or 2000 Points plus game but definitely not in a "regular" game (1000-2000 points)
