The stormblade and the warhound sound nice :)

We need to allocate them to people - I assume you'll take at least one of them?

BDA just suggested we meet on the friday night to finalize plans/assets etc. Sound good?

I can't make the Friday night, I'll be there early Sat morning though.

I can take either, I guess we just need to decide who wants to take the higher points cost hit. I've just realised that if we can go with "counts as" we can put 2 x S D weapons the Warhound, or just replace one of them, for the same cost.

I'd rather take the Shadowsword due to the points hit, which would make my list something like this:

Emperor's Hammer Tank Company: 3 x Vanquisher, 4 x Demolisher, 3 x Leman Russ

Emperor's Wrath Artillery Battery: 3 x Basilisk with indirect fire

Hydra Flak Tank

Destroyer Tank Hunter

Shadowsword


Is that enough anti-armour? Should I go with the formations, or just the bare tanks? I've got 135pts left too, so I was looking at maybe adding extra armour and/or track guards on various to keep them mobile, or maybe adding an Exterminator/Conqueror.

Or if I switch the Shadowsword with the Warhound I'd also have to drop the Destroyer Tank Hunter, but that would give us more heavy weapons, albeit on a single large easy to spot target ...


Then again, if two want to take a SH each that's fine by me too - and means I can put another 4 or 5 tanks in instead ;)

If you can get a formation in that's a nice one, go for it. I can take the Warhound if you like with the weapons it already has. Let me know the cost and I'll take it off my allocation.

Spending the points on extra armour etc sounds like a plan.

I forgot you were not there Friday night....doh.

The Warhound is 750pts, the weapon config doesn't matter as it's the same no matter which you choose.

Well BDA and I will be adding more infantry (so we have some!). A ton of guard might slow things down but a few wouldn't hurt.

Unless you want even more tanks!?

Yeah we had to drop that when the chaos [strike]scum[/strike] side lost the traitor THawk.


I'll obviously post a more accurate list once I have it done but in the meantime my force goes along the lines of:

Approximately some Ultramarines

;)

You guys got any (secret) thoughts on what our 2 team assets are going to be? PMs all round for those I think. I might have a think about it tomorrow.

I could have lent them a Valkyrie to make up for it :P
