An Alternative Army List

If I continue to be disappointed by my Attack Bikes, I will try out the following list:

-Dante
-Corbulo

-Death Company, Rhino w/ Ex. Armor
-Furioso Dreadnought, Death Company, Heavy Flamer, Ex.Armor
-Furioso Dreadnought, Death Company, Heavy Flamer, Ex.Armor

-Assault Squad, Powerfist, Rhino w/ Ex.Armor, Pintle Storm Bolter
-Assault Squad, Powerweapon, Rhino w/ Ex. Armor, Pintle Storm Bolter
-Assault Squad, Powerweapon, Rhino w/ Ex. Armor, Pintle Storm Bolter
-Tactical Squad, Meltagun, Razorback: Twin Linked Lascannon, Ex. Armor

-Baal Predator, Heavy Bolter Sponsons, Pintle Storm Bolter, Ex. Armor
-Baal Predator, Heavy Bolter Sponsons, Pintle Storm Bolter, Ex. Armor
-Baal Predator, Heavy Bolter Sponsons, Pintle Storm Bolter, Ex. Armor

The list is a slight alternative to what I have been running. I like the idea of getting in a second Furioso Dreadnought. Also, I find that with my die rolling, the previous style of Lascannon out the top hatch from the Tactical Squad may be better replaced with the Twin Linked Lascannon on the Razorback. However, the Razorback is more fragile than the Tactical squad.

One shot can eliminate the Twin Linked Lascannon on the Razorback. Whereas, the old list would require someone to pop the Rhino and deal 10 wounds to the Tactical squad in order to eliminate the Lascannon.

I cannot decide which list I like better on paper. I really would have to play test the lists to get a feel for the difference.

What do you all think?

Looks pretty good...

Infact, seeing how Jawaballs is supposedly doing pretty good with his list, and both of your lists are nearly synonymous...

I don't mean to accuse you of anything or whatever, as if I did run Blood Angels(which are super cool) I would also run a similar list.

I just thought I should point that out. :)

2 dreadnoughts?? Great. Just great ;) Personally after friday I would fear 2 dreads more than those bikes. They were too easy to pop off and didnt do enough damage.

@UltraLemming> It is ok. I studied Jawaballs blog before and while I was building this army. I built his list and started playing his tactics. Now I considering altering slightly to fit my own designs. I have been open in admitting as much here on my blog. I played IG for 12 years, and I have just started building and playing BA 4 or 5 months ago.

@High Marshal Hunter> Hmmm, I will take that as a vote for this list!

My attack bikes weren't even an irritation to you. They did nothing!!

I still have the image of the bikers splatting on a giant tree in my head!

I laugh every time I think about it.
