Hmmm 3 thunderfire cannons...
Lets see, 12 small pie plates, shooting at 60"?!
I don't care who you are, that will F*** up your day.
And it's only 300 points? Plus the Techmarines?
Though I wonder, you didn't include Whirlwinds. Why? They don't fit the idea of a gunline?
Additionally, what are your thoughts on Sgt Chronus? He ups a tank to BS5, which can really make a difference when trying to put a Lascannon through a Land Raider.

i assume this was directed at me.


Whirlwinds weren't included as i really don't have any expierience with them. from mathhammering them out i can tell you this. they are incredibly effective against troops with a 4+ armor save or worse that are hiding in cover. the main problems against it are 1) current meta is mech heavy(nerfing the whirlwind as it really can't hurt armor) 2) it competes with Vindicator and predator tanks for the HS slots. at low point values go ahead and take 1 or 2 as they are pretty cheap, but once you get beyond 1500 you will want more expensive toys.

Cronus is nice and certaintly worth his points. but are you sure other things arn't worth even more? for his points you could almost get another Landspeeder Typhoon, Upgrade a Dreadnought to venerable, get HKs on all your tanks, make a bunch of your Rhinos into Razorbacks...

if he could hop into a new tank when his old tank was destroyed i would 100% include him.

This is a discussion of tactics that can be used with the standard ork codex . The difficulty in discussing specific army tactics is that there is wide disagreement among players about how best to create any particular army list and how that list should be executed .

Can the Adepta Sororitas actually have a space in the 13 (it'll make it 14) sub-categories in category "Warhammer 40,000 Tactics"?

And include the "Category:Witch Hunters Tactica" which could be renamed "Category:Sisters of Battle/ Adepta Sororitas Tactica"?

The 4 articles included all fit in the Adepeta sororitas category, even if very very outdated =P

Is there an article on 7E sisters of battle? I'm kind of tired of playing Eldar.
