About a month ago I posted a 2500pt list, the main criticism seemed to be not enough infantry or tank commanders. I have reworked the list into this 2000pt list as another comment said 2500pts was kind of strange. Like with the other thread, I welcome all comments and criticism about this list.

Seems like a pretty terrifying list, lots of infantry as well as a wall of armor. My only thought would be what about psychic shenanigans?

Rule of 3 comes into account here. Apart from troops, there should only be 3 of each in a list. So maximum of 3 tank commanders. I like the 3 commanders, 3 tank commanders and 12 squads though. A very good base. Removing the 4 additional tank commanders gives you 816 points to spend on other goodies like psykers and more tanks

Collecting this list will give you the flexibility to shift list as meta/editions change. It's a great core.

Rule of 3 on tank commanders remember.. but you can run others as Lehman Russ.

I agree about wyrdvanes, dump em. There is nothing they add. You can already do 3 smites, targeted smite, -1 to hit and +1 save each turn!!

If you drop a plasma pistol you can add an infantry squad.

From am organisation point of view turn 3rd detachment into a battalion, you have the spare HQ and troops to do that and will increase CP.

So I have changed it to this, if I can drop 4 points I could get 14 infantry squads, what do you suggest?

You can get those 4 points by turning 1 leman russ' plasma cannons into heavy bolters because plasma cannon sponsons are exactly 4 points more expensive than heavy bolters.

Sponsor idea sounds good. It's 4pts, no biggie. As someone with 100 guardsmen on painting table good luck!

You have solid core here and 18cp for strats is great.

I recently painted 50 and almost 60 guardsmen and I'll tell you right now, that it's a absolute pain the arse. I've even painted 50 chaos cultists before in the space of a week and I'm not sure what's worse to build and/or paint! I just never want to do that again. But I am painting about 20 Deathwatch storm shields, which is a bit of a nightmare too. XD

 

I'd highly reccomend that you have something like this playing in the background when you're painting your guardsmen.

I have a similar list in the tallarn thread I'm about to post, though I like auger arrays for a lascannon re-roll once per game, and conquoerers are almost as good as Tank Commanders at 24" with their Coaxial spotter guns
