Alright. Just another list i am thinking about to convert my IG to a IM list for 30k. I dont have the artillery yet, but i have a good option to pick them up.

So. Artllery company. Again. Weird and heavy handed but this is probably going to be used along side 2 other players' 3000 point armies in 3vs3 3k per player games.

I'd definitely recommend Alchem Jackers for this. There's some debate over joining Discipline Masters to Ordnance Batteries, due to the wording for DMs only joining Infantry units. However your group plays it, leadership 7 or 9 still leaves you open to falling back, leaving the guns behind. With Alchem Jackers, you get pinned if you fail, and won't leave the guns. Also helps to keep screening squads in front of your big guns.

My only other obvious advice, anywhere you have a power weapon, it should be an axe, marines will strike first and artificer armour is common, it's better in almost every situation.

Hope this helps. Also, have fun resolving 30 mortar shots per turn, that seems like some kind of psychological warfare.

There is definitely a psychological factor to 30 mortars, 7 grenade launcher, 3 meduaa breacher and 6 earthshaker pie plates.

The idea would be to deploy 1 earthshaker battery into my left corner, and deploy my other earthshaker battery to the right corner and put the medusas dead center. Bubble wrap each battery with a mortar squad which is further bubble wrapped with infantry. The commander and platoon command would also go center. Ideally the artillery is out of sight so shouldnt get shot too much at first.

No matter which of the 3 batteries the enemy goes after, the other 2 batteries can cover them. No real objective grabing beyond advancing surviving infantry at any smoking holes in the enemy line...

In the team game the other 2 players can go for objectives.

To be fair, there are a fair number of flamer templates too from all the characters and sgts with hand flamers for overwatch protection.

Ok. I change the liat with the suggestions.

Battleacribe doesnt let me set a power weapon, but obviously, yes power axes are the only sensible option. They have little hope in melee, but the axe at least means the weilder might bring something down before the lot of them are butchered.

And yes the stim upgrade is also definitly a better option too. Freed up 15 pointa which went into the force comander's war gear.

Battlescribe is saying the Infantry Squads are only 90pts, did you not list something or am I not seeing something right in front of me?

 

EDIT: Yeah unless I'm missing something your Infantry Squads should only be 90pts, which free's up 15 points. Unless you plan on making bigger changes as a result, the only place I can see to put those points in your Force Commander. I'm thinking you could go for Carapace and Mastercrafted or Power Armor and Digital Lasers. Up to you though.
