Genestealer Cult have a lot of really good cheap troops, so I wanted to be sure to take a lot of them. One unit of Neophytes are armed for ranged fighting, so will hang back with the Chimera and add a bit of covering fire. The other Neophytes are armed for closer engagements, so will be approaching and being meat shields too. The acolytes will ride in the Goliath and try to get into combat as soon as possible, to put all hose rending attacks to good use. The big-boy backup comes from 10 purestrains; which should give anything brown trousers in hand to hand.
After that it was apparent that I needed some anti tank; which comes in the form of 3 Sentinels. At 50pts each and armour 12 they should be worth the cost. Luckily the Russ can pick up the slack with a plethora of anti tank guns. With 4 twin linked auto cannon shots I'm hoping it'll provide some anti-air if needed.
I suppose I should talk HQ choices too. Well, the Patriarch is a beast, and only 90pts, so that one should be obvious. He also has a psychic level, which helps. I already have the Magus though and at 40pts I couldn't not take him. It also covers me quite well from a psychic standpoint and I really want the force to be covered from all directions!
Well that about rounds it out for the minute; and I don't want to hear anyone lamenting the lack of Riptide Wings in my list!
I also painted this rather nice Heavy Stubber over the weekend. One more model I can tick off the plan!
Oh, and I'm also currently working on a short narrative campaign for them, so stay tuned for some cool little battle reports from that one in a few weeks.
