A friend and I were wondering about AM and hordes of infantry when we read that leman russ tanks in a spearhead gain obsec so can take objectives. This got us thinking about the meta and potential for the fabled leman to make its mark. All together there are 81 heavy bolters shots that will gain dmg2 soon to help with hordes and primaris spam. 10x2d6 battle cannon shots rerolling 1s (Cadia) once they gain positions over objectives. T8 chassis with 3+ armour is not bad at a minimum. The characters have master mechanic to reduce damage and can issue orders. With the cadian relic to improve a round of shooting, overlapping fire for a specific target, hail of fire for extra shots. 2 tanks sit on home objectives, a Commander and 2 more tanks for 2 groups of 3 tanks spread to outer objectives leaving 1 tank on middle objectives Commander's responding to major threats. Not great but not bad, what could be better?

I think that there is a tendancy in our heads as garud commanders to overstandardize and overuniform our armies. Perhaps a front line row of tanks with flamers would be useful, allowing a few of your army to get into it and potentially out again -- or just to be hell on wheels for overwatch.

Also, remember there is a cadian "style" one unit strat that can boost ONE tank on a single target, in addition to the relic of lost cadia. I use it sometimes with superheavies but it could also be used on the rounds the relic isn't available, with the tank that is boosting shot count.

Finally, you have 10 leman russ, and that's fine, but any army with a few obsec will drown you out. 1 leman russ = 1 obsec model.
6 aggressors (no obsec) and 1 surviving marine = 7 obsec models, so you suddenly face losing a lot of objectives despite obsec. I don't know if you figured that in your calculations of what the army could do or not.

Again, I personally woudl probably make 2 short range tanks (demolisher + 3 heavy flamer with master mechanic would make for interesting tank commander play) to be the lead element, but that is aqlso my own playstyle. All in all I like the idea and am curious how it goes.

Hey, I like the list, the only thing that I'd change is tank ace, to give extra order, the cadian 'pound them to dust' is very good.
