Custom regiment: gunnery experts, jury rigged repairs

Spearhead
-hq- tank commander (battlecannon, lascannon) 179 [warlord: master of command, relic: kurov's aquila]
-hs- leman russ (executioner, lascannon) 137
-hs- manticore (heavy bolter) 133
-hs- basilisk squad (2, 2x heavy bolter) 216

Spearhead
-hq- tank commander (battlecannon, lascannon) 179 [tank ace: steel commander]
-hs- leman russ (executioner, lascannon) 137
-hs- manticore (heavy bolter) 133
-hs- basilisk squad (2, 2x heavy bolter) 216

Spearhead
-hq- tank commander (battlecannon, lascannon) 179
-hs- leman russ (executioner, lascannon) 137

-hs- basilisk squad (2, 2x heavy bolter) 216

Total: 1995 / 6cp (-1 for tank ace)

Command points allocation:

The only problem I could foresee is that you don't have any screen to protect you from deepstike/ and fast moving melee units. Other than that everything looks good.

I would re-arrange things to get an emperors wrath arty formation and an emperors fist tank company. For the CPs you would need to make the wrath company into a battalion with 3 cheap infantry squads who also get to be your screen.

The ability to spend CPs to double up your firing really is a no-brainer...

1cp UNYIELDING ADVANCE to always fire twice with main gun regardless of speed, as well as the flat damage 3 battlecannon relic and the warlord ability to re-roll overwatch and the excellent 2cp POUNDING BARRAGE (Basilisk, Wyvern or Hydra gets to fire twice with main weapon) combined with the relic orbital tracker to ignore cover on that double firing model and tank commander to maximise damage with the warlord ability of extra -1ap on 6's a nice to have.

If you don't want to see the infantry on the table make them bare bones scions squads and keep them off table in case you need them.

Something like

Spearhead - Fist!
TC (Top Cat)
LR

Spearhead

AV (I would make one a Wyvern for anti horde)

Battalion - Wrath!

Just run something easy.
3 banehammer (detach 1)
6 basilisk (2 squad of 3)
1 trojan with 2 engenseer, 2 astropath, and a company commander in it.

Sure, you are a little lighttm on screens...

Note I think that lord commisar yarrik is something a big armor column could bring along -- rerolling all those 1's with big guns is worth it, even if the poor guy gets tired of advancing every darn round.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I'd like to keep the list as a tank-only, but i'm considering alternative options. The wyvern could easily fill out the anti infantry role.

There are melee sentinals in the forgeworld book that fight about like ogryn, only better toughness and wounds.
You could run a bunch of them as your vehicle screens, too, and even a few with just normal weapons behind those. They won't WIN the melee war, buit they can give your big tanks an escape moment.

I have not thought much for counter assault, my solution is just to fall back and shoot with other units. The plan is to deploy into 3 separate castles of tanks, each equally built.

My worry is your every move costs ballistic skill, and in basilisk/wyvern/manticore, that becomes really, really bad.
