Lamenters 1750 list

HQ (2):
Captain - 165
w/ Terminator Armor, Lightning Claw, Storm Shield
Librarian - 145
w/ Terminator Armor, Storm Shield, Force Axe
Sanguinary Priest - 85
w/ Terminator Armor, Power Sword
Terminator Assault Squad - 225
w/ 5x Thunder Hammers & Storm Shields
Dedicated Transport: Land Raider Crusader - 260
w/ Multi-Melta
Terminator Squad - 230
w/ Cyclone Missile Launcher
Dedicated Transport: Land Raider - 260
w/ Multi-Melta
Assault Squad - 115
Sergeant w/ Infernus Pistol
Assault Squad - 140
Sergeant w/ Infernus Pistol, Power Fist
Baal Predator - 125
w/ Flamestorm Cannon, Stormbolter

General strategy is to have all termies mounted up (Capt, Libby & Priest go in LRC) with Jump marines moving up behind the land raiders.

LRC goes in front, moves flat out first turn for 18" total while Lib casts shield (can I still do that?) giving it a 5+. I know that there isn't a 6" bubble around the vehicle anymore though, but that's okay. Standard LR will move 12" and stay behind LRC to also grant it a cover save, machine spiriting 1 las somewhere.

Baal will either outflank or stay close to deathstar, depending on opponent, mission, whatever. I'm not too concerned, it's almost always worth its points no matter how I play it. There are 2 reasons for the stormbolter upgrade: #1, it essentially gives me a 50% save vs. a weapon destroyed, #2, I can always fire it full BS whenever I'd be firing the flamestorm anyway.

I am not a fan of throwing in the extra crap (Infernus pistols particularly) on the Assault squads, but I had extra points and didn't know what to do with them. Might give extra armor to the LRs instead.

Obviously, this list is focused on getting the mega deathstar unit into melee (Furious charge, FNP, preferred enemy, with everyone but the priest toting 3++.). The standard LR and termies are there for backup.

Like always I am open to critique here. I realize a few things are not exactly competitive, like the Captain. I just like the model too much not to use him.

I should have reports from the field in a few days. May tweak the list before then. More to come.
