Hi guys

this is the first idea for my WW2 themed list

counts as catachan

 

Lord Commisar

-warlord / master of command

Company commander

-Kurovs Aquila

Company commander

 

30 conscripts

infantry squad

-grenade launcher

command squad

command squad

-3 flamer, heavy flamer

10 veterans

-3 flamer, heavy flamer, 5 shotguns, power sword

10 veterans

-3 flamer, heavy flamer, 5 shotguns, power sword

master of ordnance

 

5 rough riders

 

basilisk

3 heavy weapon teams

-3 mortars

3 leman russ, no upgrades

 

Valkyrie

 

chimera

-twin HB, track guards

chimera

-twin HB, track guards

 

Fairly aggressive list, tactics somewhat inspired by board member mordian guard and his educational videos.

Vets in chimeras, one company commander to accompany both units, to use Burn them out x2 and experienced eye strategem.

all 3 command squads in valkyrie for 12 flamer weapons cooking up whatever they want, again can use experienced eye strat (does on average 12 wounds to MEQ with this strat)

lord commisar to babysit conscripts to make use of his non officer orders.

master of ordnance with focused bombardment.

 

not sure there's enough high S weapons to deal with vehicles, can switch mortars for autocannons at same cost. concentrated fire strategem plus take aim would be awesome combo for either weapon tbh.

my theme is somewhat limiting, but hoping this could be a fun list.

 

C+C always welcome. im currently working on an all infantry list using the same theme/limitations

Have you watched Mordian Glory's video on flamer Command squads by any chance? :P

In terms of AT, a Basi and 3 Russes are probably an alright amount...I'd maybe upgrade one to a TC, you have the HQ slot. The Rough Riders you can probably drop, almost guaranteed to disappoint. Master of Ordnance is also one I'd only bring if you have nothing to spend points that'll bring consistent value.

For the HWTs...stick with Mortars. I recently tried 3x3 Lascannons and ran into massive issues with line of sight. They ended up being expensive and fairly toothless infantry squads.
