Very good list.
I would swap the flamers over to the PCS and give their Meltas to the Vets..the Vets get max use of their BS4, and you negate the BS3 of the PCS.

Who's riding in the Valkyrie..if no-one you might as well take a Vendetta and use it purely as a Gunship, which is perfect.

DD's are good tank hunters but are tricky to get the best from.

Well done, very nice list.

Hi HOBO!

Thanks for your reply.

Very good list.

I see your point but statistically the PCS and Vets have the same 2 hits per turn. And if I have a good dice roll I will have 4 hits instead of 3.

Who's riding in the Valkyrie..if no-one you might as well take a Vendetta and use it purely as a Gunship, which is perfect.
Again, valid point. My plan is to use the Valk as a backup transporter for one of my troops and it will gives my list my a nice anit-horde bunch. And if is it necessary I can embark the PCS from the beginning of the game.

Very good list.

Well, I haven't tired him yet. Did you have some experience with him?

I'm thinking to replace from the CCS the MG with PG to improve my mid range fire power and I think that I have enough anti-tank in the list.
What do you think? Will this help the list more or should I stay with MG load out?

I always take some Plasma..higher RoF with that extra shot helps against some targets, plus the extra range has its benefits..staying out of the enemy's MG effective range been one.

I use my DD's by either having them out front of my other AV12 Chassis, or keep them back for a turn or 2 and habe them do hit-and-run raids on enemy vehicles that come within range (been fast).

It's good you have given them a Hull MM because that second AP1 hit is useful at 24", and means you don't have to get within that 12" range to get the single shot's 2nd D6.

I should add that I don't particularly like the DD, I give my HH's Hull MM's (and my BW's..stops wound allocation against SM's) and they do as good a job as the DD for anti-armour, plus have that duality of been anti-infantry as well. Plus nothing beats the Vendetta for AT up to AV13..but that almost a whole other story.

Hi HOBO!

@DD:
I understand. I haven't used him and I don't see him a lot (I guess that depends on the fact that the Vendetta will to same job better and cheaper). But I want to give him a try and if I'm not happy with him then I can/will replace him with BW.

@Flamer PCS:
Your point has given me to think about and I guess to embark this squad in the Valk. will be in some situation a great deal.

Ok, this brings me to following list:

*************** 1 HQ ***************
Company Command Squad, Company Commander, 4 x Veteran with Plasma gun, 1 x Astropath
+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts..
- - - > 195 pts.
*************** 5 Troops ***************
Infantry Platoon
+ Command Squad, Platoon Commander, 1 x Guardsman with Heavy flamer, 3 x Guardsman with Flamer
+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts.. -> 120 pts..
+ Infantry Squad, Guardsman with Grenade launcher, Guardsmen Weapons Team with Autocannon, Upgrade to Sergeant -> 65 pts..
+ Infantry Squad, Guardsman with Grenade launcher, Guardsmen Weapons Team with Autocannon, Upgrade to Sergeant -> 65 pts..
- - - > 250 pts.

Veteran Squad, 3 x Veteran with Meltagun, Veteran Sergeant
+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts..
- - - > 155 pts.

Veteran Squad, 3 x Veteran with Meltagun, Veteran Sergeant
+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts..
- - - > 155 pts.

Veteran Squad, 3 x Veteran with Meltagun, Veteran Sergeant
+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts..
- - - > 155 pts.

+ Chimera Transport, Multi-laser, Heavy flamer -> 55 pts..
- - - > 170 pts.
*************** 3 Fast Attack ***************
Hellhound Squadron, Smoke launchers
+ Devil Dog, Multi-melta -> 135 pts..
- - - > 140 pts.

+ Devil Dog, Multi-melta -> 135 pts..

1 Valkyrie, 1 x Multi-laser, 1 x Pair of multiple rocket pods

*************** 3 Heavy support ***************
Manticore Rocket Launcher, Heavy flamer
- - - > 160 pts.

Manticore Rocket Launcher, Heavy flamer
- - - > 160 pts.

Leman Russ Squadron
+ Leman Russ Executioner, Heavy flamer -> 190 pts..
- - - > 190 pts.

This list improves the flexibility and my anti-horde capability too.

Thoughts?

Thanks for helping me.
