Evening All,


I'm proudly returning to the hobby after 10 years, having discovered that alcohol costs money and gives you a headache, and women... well do the same thing, really...


Previously played Space Marines but they seem fairly irrelevant in the Primaris era; plus I always wanted to collect Guard (and let's face it I want an excuse to build a new army). This is my draft 3k list - designed to fit all the rules but I expect to play fairly casually.


List includes plenty of cheap infantry supported by commissars, commanders and a priest. Designed to screen, die and hold objectives. 3 mortar squads because they are cheap anti-light inf artillery. Pask and two LRs all with Punishers for dakka. 2 sentinels and a hellhound for extra support. Hydra for anti-air. Vindicare Assassin for warlord sniping.


3x Tank Commanders in the Super-Heavy Detachment with battlecannons and Catachan (re-roll dice for total shots); fluff-wise representing tank aces. Baneblade supported by a Tech-Priest and a Trojan allowing re-rolls to hit.


Pros: heavy tank line and large troop count, high command points. Cons; no physcic, no deep strike, slow moving, no long range artillery.

Looks like a good mix. At this points level, having lots of everything is a good idea and you have that. Don't forget to post any battle reports with it in the barracks :)
