I like your list, seems like it would be fun to play. LOTD seem a bit expensive but they are a cool unit :victory:

As for comments:

Which squad does Vulkan ride with? I can't see anywhere for him to fit?

I would suggest dropping the command squad down to just melta guns and putting them with Vulkan in a drop pod.

I like the attack bike squadron but i think the bikes could be whittled down for some more toys. A stormtalon or a thunderfire cannon would do better i think. I would take a smaller bike squad with grav guns or just drop it entirely.

For air support the flakk missiles are not a very good use of points i have found. I would Get an ADL with a quad gun instead for anti flyer.

Thank you. It is very fun to play :grin:

I like the idea of dropping the bike units all together- Stormtalon is a nice replacement

Should I drop the Devastator squad all together or use them to man the quad gun?

I quite like devs and they work well with the ADL. The sergeant can use the signum to give whoever is manning the quad gun BS5 too.

Varakir has got it right with this list I think. I strongly second the notion of putting Vulkan with the HG and using a DP so you have two coming in T1 (I just finished putting together my third for a game tomorrow :D). Only thing I would add is that if you are facing AV12 fliers and you have the ability to bring a Stormtalon do so. If you're only up against AV10/11 fliers then go nuts with all the points you want to spend on S7 anti air. Maybe my dice are cursed, but Glancing on a 5 sucks ass....though if blowing things up gets moved to 7+ on the Vehicle Damage Table like all has pointed in the new BRB that means stacking S7 shots the way you have is basically the only option for its efficiency at Glancing down Fliers....but all that's just speculation for the moment. It might not even make sense! :laugh: Either way that's one of the reasons why I play Imperial Fists over anything else from C:SM: gotta love Tank Hunter on the Devastators!

One thing I would add (you made the mistake I did)

Command squads can take any wargear from the ranged and melee list not the specialist weapons, flamers fall under specialist not ranged
