PostSubject: Too Much Dakka?   Mon May 11, 2009 2:05 pm

Sometimes when I get free time at work I think about dream army lists for 40k. I surprised myself when I was able to fit this much dakka into a Guard 1750 list:


-= HQ =-

110 Company Command (50) w/ Master of Ordnance (30) + Lascannon (20) + Sniper Rifle x2 (10)

55 Chimera Transport (55) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter + Multilaser


-= Troops =-

65 Platoon Command (30) w/ Heavy Flamer (20) + Flamer x3 (15)

55 Chimera Transport (55) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter + Multilaser

65 Infantry Squad (50) w/ Flamer (5) + Autocannon (10)

55 Chimera Transport (55) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter + Multilaser

65 Infantry Squad (50) w/ Flamer (5) + Autocannon (10)

55 Chimera Transport (55) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter + Multilaser


115 Veterans (70) w/ Shotguns + Powerfist (15) + Meltagun x3 (30)

55 Chimera Transport (55) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter + Multilaser


-= Heavy Support =-

220 Vanquisher Tank (155) w/ Hull Lascannon (15) + Tank Commander (50)


510 Battle Tank x3 (450) w/ Hull Heavy Bolter x3 + Sponson Heavy Bolters x3 (60)


325 Artillery Squadron w/ Griffon Heavy Mortar (75) + Basilisk x2 (250)
+ Hull Heavy Flamer x3


Point Total: 1750


For those keeping tally, if the army doesn't move and is at full strength it can fire in a single shooting phase:

- 3 S9 AP3 Ordinance Barrage Large Blasts
- 3 S3 AP3 Ordinance Large Blasts
- 1 S6 AP4 Ordinance Barrage Large Blast
- 2 S9 AP2 Lascannons
- 1 S8 AP1 Vanquisher Anti-Tank Shell (+2D6 Armour Pen)
- 4 S7 AP4 Autocannon shots
- 15 S6 AP6 Multilaser shots (5 Chimeras)
- 42 S5 AP4 Heavy Bolter shots (5 Chimeras + the 9 Heavy Bolter Sponsons on the Leman Russes)
- 2 SX AP6 Rending Pinning Sniper Rifle shots

And that doesn't take into account the 3 meltaguns, 4 Heavy Flamers, 5 flamers, and assorted lasguns that may or may not be in range...

...


Shocked


Yeah... I don't think I'd play a list like that against anyone I want to be friends with afterward for a long while...

I like the list, lots and lots of shooting. Add that with your ability to hit with your Mater of Ordnance all the time (lucky rolling), you have one nasty army.

The only think I see missing is a Valkyrie. Having the ability to have a scoring unit in there for last minute objective grabs at 24 inches would be hard to pass up for me.

Other then that looks sound to me, you have lots of anti horde shooting with a combo of long and short range anti tank.

Oh, also there is a pretty small body count in the list for guard, but if you can keep them alive and let the tanks do all the talking, it shouldn't be to much of a prob I would think.
