Well, today I had a 2000pt game against Tyranids. Things went pretty well, my opponent conceded at the top of turn 5. Here is the list that I used:
Col. Straken w/ 4x vets in carapace, 2x meltagun, 2x flamer, mounted in a Chimera(extra armor)
Lord Commisar w/ power fist
Ogyrn x 5 mounted in a Chimera(extra armor), Killed 10 genestealers and 3 warriors.
Leman Russ 3x heavy bolters (extra armor)
Demolisher lascannon, 2x plasma cannon, (extra armor)
Valkyrie hellfury rockets, multi-laser, heavy bolters
Veterans x10 meltagun, plasma rifle, grenade launcher, & demo charge. Sgt. w/ plasma pistol & power sword. I gave them Demo and Grenadier Doctines. Expensive squad that underperformed.
Command officer w/bolter, lascannon, 2x sniper rifles.
Squad 1 lascannon & grenade launcher.
Squad 2 missle launcher & plasma rifle.
Squad 3 autocannon & grenade launcher.
Heavy Weapons Squad 1 3x lascannon.
Heavy Weapon Squad 2 3x missle launcher.
Ratling Squad 1 5x ratlings
Ratling Squad 2 8x ratlings
Overall, I am happy with this list. However, I will be tweaking it further. The upside is there is a great deal of flexibility that no gunline has. The downside is that I miss the large gunline.
I did some painting today. Hopefully, I can get some pics taken tomorrow and get them posted.
