1500p CA Detatchment

Post#1 » May 28 2017 09:44

I am planning a second army to use for battle, and I wanted a list that would give me a good counter/offence force with high mobility. In other words, I am aiming to design a army that can engage for long periods of time, and hold it's own against Imperial Guard tank battalions using lots of Leman Russ tanks and at least one Baneblade. I need some help refining the list below, so any help would be kindly accepted. My current playstyle (I changed it recently) is high mobility using Piranha skimmers to strike from the front, while using Broadsides to flank. The broadsides remain static in easily defendable positions while teams of Breachers protect them on the ground. My commander (which I haven't bought yet, but plan to soon) will be a XV*-05 Coldstar with a anti-air/high mobility loadout which will keep the suit safe and sound. My plan is to buy most of these models over the next few months, which is why I need responses, so that I don't waste money on the wrong things. Thanks ATT!!!
