Ok so i thought i would start this thread off, to get ready for my Imperial fists. So far it will aim to be 1500 and will include-

Captain Eeifmund of the 5th Company (Master)
Where i shall be using the power sword and antique bolter carrying masters from the new master of the chapter box.

9 Man Command Squad with x2 Missile Launcher
These shall have the veteran shoulder pads available from the online store.
I was hoping to use the new missile launchers from the devastator box but the fact they are only available in the devastator boxs means i'll have to use the standard tactical ones.

Dreadnaught Yanyr, Former Captain of the 5th Company
Twin-Linked Lascannon, Smoke Launchers, Extra Armour

For this guy i thought i would make him special because fluff wise he was a former captain, To do this i shall be using the mark IV dreadnaught from forgeworld along with the special dreadnaught drilling arm (i think it would look good considering imperial fists are masters of seiges) and imperial fists markings and the scenenic base which are also available from FW

10 Man Tactical Squad with Heavy Bolter and Flamer
I shall be using the tactical squad and chapter shoulder badges available from online store. Again i was hoping to use the devastator plastic heavy bolter marines but again its not cost effective and would be a waste.

9 Man Tactical Squad with Heavy Bolter and Flamer
Same as above

Land Speeder Multi-Melta
For all my landspeeders i shall be buying the assault squad pads to fit the crews with them.

Land Speeder Tornado with Heavy Bolter and Assault Cannon
same as above

Land Speeder Tornado with Heavy Bolter and Assault Cannon
same as above

10 Man Devastator Squad with 4 Missile Launchers
I need to figure out how to get more missile launchers as only buying three tatical squads ill only provide three missile launchers i need a total 6

Vindicator with Extra Armour and Smoke Launchers
Shall be using the forge world model and most likely the imperial fist doors.

Again using the forge world version and this time using the imperial front panels and doors.

Thats what i am hoping to get, it shall cost a bit but i am taking my time with it, i've started by buying the first squad and shoulder pads :) will see if i can get any good pictures of them up.

Yeah but the problem is that would give me the two heavy bolters i need and one more missile launcher but where do i get the other three missile launchers from.
if i dropped the landspeeder with the multmelta i can have instead a full unit with plasma cannons or lascannons.
If i picked all plasma cannons i lose a bit of power destroying tanks but then i can destroy large units of toughly armoured men but then i also have the possibility of blowing myself up
if i pick lascannons i won't have much chance at repulsing larger quantities of troops but then i have in effect strength 10 weapons to take out tanks. if i have two of each then i only need one devastator box and i have enough to equip my devastator squad and my two infantry units.
Nope :( don't know anyone really since i moved here and none of my new friends play it, i think the two lascannons and two plasma cannons may be better anyway especially with tank hunter the lascannons become strength 10 against armour and plasma cannons strength 8 vs armour to. Also now gives me something deadly that can take down dead striking terminators.
Ok no problem i was just stating what models i am going to include :)
