A guest post from Inquisitor Mikey
Lo there Readers!
Inquisitor Mikey here again. I know, I know… long time no hear. Well… let’s just say work has not been kind to me recently.
I have made some headway, however! Not as much as I’d like, but some. I have a list, and some paint on models. My biggest concern with my list is that I have created a 1750pt list… and it is purely Astra Militariguard. It includes all the stuff I like though; Tanks, Deep striking suicide squads, and a platoon of chumps. Oh. And ROUGH RIDERS!!!
But I digress. In my list is not nearly enough Inquisition. So now I either have to move some stuff around or only play, like, 2500 point games. Anyways, the list as it stands so far is thus:
Pask in a Punisher (with heavy bolters), a Demolisher for funz (with MultiMeltas).
A vet squad (with 2 melts guns, a heavy flamer and a power fist) in a (heavy flamer) Chimera.
A platoon – the Command with 2 sniper rifles in a chimera (which is actually a Salamander scout vehicle); 2 squads with a flamer in each, and a Power Fist Commissar.
A heavy weapons squad (with autocannons)
3 Armoured Sentinals (with lascannon on each)
10 Rough Riders (there’s a plasma pistol in there too, because, you know. If you are going to waste points… COMMIT)
An executioner (yes, with Plasma Sponsons)
A Vanquisher. That’s it. Big cannon, no add-ons.
A Scion Platoon – 2 squads of 5, with a melta and a Plasma in each.
Anyways, that’s it so far. My basic thinking for the army is for Pask and friend to advance slowly right up the middle; the vanquisher hanging out at the back, preferably with LOS to everything, or at least Lotsothing; the Executioner up one flank; the Sentinals supporting the Executioner, the Rough Riders and Vet squad pushing up the other flank; the Scions deep striking and popping vital assets before viciously killing themselves on the enemies weapons (take that Xenos scum!); the Heavy Weapons supporting/covering the Vanquisher; and the Platoon either camping on home objective, or slowly advancing behind Pask and his escort.
The next inclusion, or what I would like to include, is a Xenos inquisitor; with a band of merry people (storm bolters and riot shield acolytes, crusaders and death cult assasins) in a Land Raider Redeemer. Straight up the middle. Into combat. Burn Maim Kill… I mean… Purge Cleanse Cauterise…
I’d be really interested in what people think of the basic components of the list. I realise with 8th inbound, most of this could go flying up in a pall of smoke. But Rough Riders will always be cool, right? RIGHT?!?!
