1000 points for some friendly games. I want to try and get a brigade with 3 hellhounds in 1k points, and I did it! 

 

Brigade:

Company commander (boltgun) 31 (Warlord Grand strategist + Kurov's Aquila relic)

company commander 30

primaris psyker 40

 

10 guard (plasma gun)

10 guard (plasma gun)

10 guard

10 gaurd

20 conscripts

5 scions (metlagun and plasma pistol)

 

commy (bolt pistol) 31

commy (plasma pistol) 35

astropath 15

 

hellhound (heavy flamer) 110

hellhound (heavy flamer) 110

hellhound (heavy flamer) 110

 

Basilisk (heavy bolter) 108

cyclops demo vehicle 40

cyclops demo vehicle 40

 

Comes to 999 points with 12cp at 1k points. Will probably join the 2 x10 man basic guard squads and run the 20 conscripts and 20 guardsmen with a company commander (potentially given the laurals of command for double orders, FRFSRF re-rolling all hits anyone?) and commy for objectives (with the primaris psyker) the other 2 guard squads with plasma will roam with the astropath and other company commander. 

 

hellhounds are there to burn! Cylcops to be area denial/ explosions and Bassy to have fun!

 

I will be using the cadian regiment, since thats what my models are. Even if catachan would benefit the hellhounds and cyclops more

Looks good! That´s a good amount of bodies, and what is not to love about Hellhounds!?

 

A very tiny suggestion: Hellhounds can take stormbolters now, which synergize well with their role. If you drop one plasma pistol you could equip all Hellhounds with stormbolters and end up with 1000 points exactly. 

 

That´s some extra range for your Hellhounds. And at 12 range, That´s 1 plasma shot traded for 12 bolter shots. 

 

What doctine will you be using?

Cadian probably since thats what the models are (old 90s metals in the majority).

 

I like the stormbolter idea! The hellhounds don't have storm bolters on them though. Plus If i remove either of the 2 plasma pistols I have, I will have to replace with a bolt pistol. so wont be able to afford them on all. Think I will keep the plasma pistol, since thats how the models are armed. Think I will have to hunt for some storm bolter parts in the bits box and add them on anyway for future games.

You´re welcome! You have to see how it looks, but adding two coaxial bolters might do the trick for a conversion. Kind of nasty such upgrade parts don´t come with the box..

One is a chimera conversion into a hellhound so no parts there. One is the old metal one, so yer, no bits there. But one is the newer one, which should be easy to get a stormbolter on.

 

Time to hunt! the two coaxial bolters would look sweet. Now where did i put my knife.....

Your list looks pretty good, some good tanks, I'm not a big fan of the basilisks (but I love the models). Wich doctrine do you choose ? Cadian ? Catachan ?

Cadian because thats what my models are.

 

I had a choice of a basilisk and a meltagun and 2 plasma guns or a manticore. I went for the former since basilisks are now ap -3 :)

Yeah now they are a little bit better, they are better than the index version, and with the cadian doctrine...  Oh and you can spam the cadian stratagem with 12 CP... Let's get that +1 to hit !!!

Also with my warlord trait. I can get the cp back on 5+. If my opponent has a decent amount of cp, I have the aquilla to give me cp on 5+ as well. if an opponent has a small amount of cp, i will take the laurals instead for a lovely potential combo of FRFSRF on a 20man combined squad, re-rolling all hits
