Hello hivemind,

I have a game tomorrow versus the Thousand Sons. Any and all critique is appreciated!!!

General tactic will be to keep all but one infantry unit within the Chimeras to zerg rush objectives. One Infantry unit which is equipped with a mortar will be somewhere midline to fire upon the enemy.
Psychers travel in the Chimeras to provide support for the guardsmen when disembarked. Primaris Psycher will hang with the one infantry group not in the chimeras.

Tanks will run a pincher move one on each side with the command tank driving in the center.

1 Mortar in a squad isn't going to do much in terms of support, you'd be better off going for a Heavy Weapon Squad.

I would drop a Russ for a HWS, and maybe even drop both Astropaths. You could then get a CC for the orders for your Infantry Squads,

HI!

1. Your vox casters are useless with NO order to pass, so drop them.
2. Gaze of the Emperor is a rough spell to find use of. It may zip across some of your and some of his troops but the one thign that is sure is that your astropath is REAL close to the enemy and made of paper. Perhaps giving one astropath +1 to save and the other -1 to be hit to cast, and then making your psyker primaris a melee unit (I know, sounds insane) with the relic "deathmask of oleanus" on him. Its a command point well spent, and he can run around doing stuff with a 4++ shield that he would be very hesitant to do with just a robe on. Like smiting, gazing of emperor, or hitting with stick .. ing.

That way your 2 "workhorse" guys can hang back and strip cover for troops or tanks, and not be risked up front (its a unique ability the primaris doesn't share). And if you are firing 24 shots lasguns just out of the chimeras and another 48 to 96 from 3 squads, stripped cover matters.
