I also intend to take down a Warhammer army of Dwarves. Their main aim is to find some Hill which happens to have a Dwarven cemetery beneath it that needs defending. I aim to figure out that list in the next few days.
The 40k list I am gonna take is 1500 points of Guard. I have decided not to use my Flying force (seen here), and am instead going for a variation of this list.
Company Command Squad, Creed, Officer of the Fleet, Vox Caster
Command Squad: 3 x Flamers, Vox Caster
1st Squad: Vox Caster, Autocannon
2nd Squad: Vox Caster, Autocannon
2nd Heavy Weapon Squad: 3 x Lascannons
1st Squad: Vox Caster, Flamer
2nd Squad: Vox Caster, Flamer
3rd Squad: Vox Caster, Meltagun
4th Squad: Vox Caster, Meltagun
Valkyrie Assault Carrier: Multiple Rocket Pods
1st Platoon is built around sitting on objectives and not moving, with a mobile command company to counter any chargers, either by absorbing the charge, or toasting them after combat.
2nd Platoon can advance across the battlefield to take objectives in enemy hands, and also means they have to wipe out 5 elements before they cannot contest an objective.
The Valkyrie and Vendetta are there to either get my troops across the battlefield quickly (I am looking at you Scout moves) and allowing me to get some units right in the enemies face early on, these speed bumps should help so an enemy advance toward me.
The Demolisher can happily advance across the table with 2nd Platoon to help them content the objective and to bring its Demolisher Cannon to bear, while the standard Russ can help out 1st Platoon as a stationary firebase.
The Company command squad is basically there as ablative armour for Creed whose huge command range and abundance of orders can really make an Imperial Guard shooting phase into even more of a monster than usual.
If the mission is not objective based then I will have 11 Killpoints on the table (after merging squads) and I don’t think that is too terrible for 1500 points of IG.
The main thing I will struggle against is the drop podding meltas, Long Fangs and the dreaded Landraiders. Terminators could cause me some problems, however the suicidal Plasma Gun Command squad of death might deter them away from me.
As usual any comments or questions let me know.
