So doing some more planning for the admech force.

 

The theme is to defend a position, basically a forgeshrine and/or repair bay.

 

I already plan for three squads of Skitarii with 2x snipers and three squads of destroyers.

 

My question is that with the new tank what would be a good trio of heavy support?

 

I'm open for suggestions since I don't have the models yet.

 

Also suggestions on fast attack would be nice.

 

Overall I'm looking to build a brigade.

A challenge is a challenge till it is beaten, then it is a victory.
The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.

If you are defending I would suggest the Dunecrawler over our new fast tank as you aren't moving and the better saves.

Deffo the Onagers, in my esteem. 100% agree there.

I also rather like the idea of the Dragoons and Ironstriders as sallying cavalry too.

(Difficult if you subscribe much to the [frankly bizarre] perpetual motion foolishness, but I like it thematically.)

But a solid "Fort" of Skitarii and Onagers would be very impressive. Breaches and/or Secutarii Hoplites for plugging breaches could be a lot of fun too.

Hell, even little squads of six Vanguard as dismounted Dragoons could be fun to paint distinctively from other Vanguard squads!

But a straight-up Skitarii heavy force strikes me as very pleasing. Especially if in Voss-like colours, going for a more heraldic/feudal take than an of-Mars solid coat scheme.

(And in contrast to the other direction that my own brown coats went: radioactive space janitors.)

Scheme is here, sorry for the poor picture though.

Thinking breachers with the heavy arc rifles. Just need to find the proper spider kit for them.
 
As for Dragoons I was looking for a reason to design a custom kit for them. so the perpetual motion fluff wouldn't be an issue.
 
I'd like a squad of Hoplites, but I'd be too tempted to use the lichguard shields.

The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.
