from time to time I come back to the tenth, i like the aesthetics, i have quite a few bits sitting around etc. but I never was too happy with the lists i come up with: they are limited model and tactics wise (CoBI), are based on spartans (and/or Gorgon), both models that are not among my favorites or just a bit glad really (my recently started topic on iron hands tanks, in the army list forum). Mostly i'm just toying with ideas and collect stuff, a project dead not even underway?
now, I think here is something that brings together everything that (imo) is cool about the tenth (except dreads and mechanicum, i have space for those somewhere else). Without further ado here is the idea:
Tanks all flanks (As above so below)
Tanks: Falchion (i happen to have one and i think the iron hand are a great fit), Venator and regular Sicaran, both bring a certain redundancy, but are more versatile than vindicators that just need to stand somewhere and hence might be better, if outflanked. Just a bunch of heavy tanks the look great and could shot anything.
Troops: two Tacticals in Rhinos, no surprise here, and Plasma Support in a Proteus with scouting upgrade to potentially put pressure on early one.
Elites: Gorgons in an Anvillus and Immortals in a Terrax Assault Drill. Apothecary for the Plasma Support.
HQ: Delegatus or Praetor that goes with the Immortals. Orth sure is a nice addition, but i am unsure where to put him
The idea is to start the tanks on the field, where they bring some fire saturation and depending on opponent outflank and hopefully clean the table's center. Everybody's hope when going HotG, I guess. I am quite content (at the moment) about the delivery for Gorgons and immortals and delighted I found an interesting way to put the HQ somewhere. they are the alpha strike so to speak, disrupt, kill and block lanes. Yet, I do miss Anti-Air. The Arcus I find hideous in comparison to the regular Sicaran. With the Terrax though there is no slot for a Lightning or Xiphon. A dual-Kheres dread would be a 'cheap' addition, but I'd have to make cuts somewhere.
Any ideas to make this list more rounded out?
