Created this with a handy thing called Battlescribe. The formating of the text copy is a little weird; the infantry squads are really all 10-man squads - 5 with just lasguns and 5 with other equipment. The Chimera with the hull heavy flamer and pintle stubber belongs to the Command Squad. The other four basic Chimeras are for the infantry squads and heavy weapons squad.

I'm using this tomorrow (or really later today, given it's past midnight) against an old friend I havent played against in years (because I haven't been playing).
I think he still plays Blood Angels.
He runs a very active gaming club/store in a town just 25 minutes south of where I live now, so maybe I can actually get back to playing 40k on a somewhat regular basis.

I wanted all my infantry to ride in Chimeras to fit my armored theme, even though those things are really quite expensive now. 93 points for a base Chimera! Sad!
They're all Cadian (or counts as Cadians) so I can use Pask - if that's how it works now - even though I use the Steel Legion models.

Other than that... feedback?

Oh, and maybe we'll do a battle report-thing.

First, two things
1. Damn fine to have you back sir!
2. Hydra, good idea. My main weakness has been my complete lack of anti-air.

Anyhow, even though I might be the only other of the old tread-heads here I got no idea on how well going full mechanized is this edition, so I await your battle-reports and any insights you glean from it with eagerness. As for Pask, you wouldn't actually even need to make your entire army Cadian, just the units in Pask's detachment. Its entirely possible to take all the named characters with careful detachment use.

Thank you!

Battle report is up. I lost, but I feel that was more due to bad deployment on my part than the list itself.
He had no flyers, so the Hydra did nothing. It's the one unit I would have replaced, had I known he had no flyers.

Aha, so that's how it works. My army was all one big detachment though. Maybe I'm limiting my choices by not taking several smaller detachments?

Well, that all comes down to how you set things up. I am running a force with mechanized Catachans, Stormies, Sisters of Silence, Marines, Cadian Leman Russ's and Hellhounds with Pask, Custodes, and a Dread. All popping in and out as my mad mind deems fit so I kinda need to game the detachment system! Also, as I pointed out in your battle report, Hydra gets its bonus against units that Fly, like Assault Marines.

Just got the Imperial Armour: Astra Militarum Index in the mail.
There's no reason to ever even look at a regular Battle-Russ again when the Conqueror is straigt up better - and 20 points cheaper! :o Sure, range is "only" 48 inches, but how often do you really need more than that?

I haven't needed more. I even made a copy of the conquerer rules for my opponent just so he could properly grind me under the unrelenting steel treads of the Imperium. Dude has more Lemans than I have ever seen in one place. My jelly goes on forever.
