PostSubject: My Salamander Spearhead force   Sun Feb 01, 2015 5:24 pm

Thought you might be interested in some pics of a Salamander spearhead army I took to a campeign weekend a few years ago.

Force was:
Vulcan H'estan with 5 man termie squad(TL thunderhammers)
H'estan twin links Meltas, flamers and thunderhammers!
5 Tactical Squads, each TLMM Razorback Sgt with combimelta, MG marine, MM marine, 7 standard marines combat squaded.
Armoured Assault Spearhead
3 Sternguard squads each TLMM Razorback Sgt with Combimelta, 2 SG with Combimelta, 2 SG with MM, 1 SG with bolter
Tank Hunter Spearhead
3 TLMM Razorbacks
Crusher Spearhead
2 TLMM Razorbacks
Skyfall Spearhead
3 MM/MM Landspeeders

First move the Landspeeders deepstruck and attacked at least 1 tank, The Armoured spearhead outlanked and attacked whatever big thing was within 24 inches preferably a couple of tanks, Tankhunter and Crusher spearheads pickedup the unmounted combat squads. Usually the opponent was so panicked by the landspeeders that they would fire everything at them and any leftover shots at the outflanking armoured assault spearhead allowing the real tactical army to start to play from move 2. Sometimes I was lucky and the Sternguard units were not badly hurt, but even if destroyed both spearheads should have at least killed their points worth. 6 TLMM shots from the deepstriking Landspeeders, 3 TLMM shots from the Razorbacks, 6 TLMM ,9 TLcombimelta shots from the Sternguard.

Sorry for the long post but it was an interesting burny force.

Okay Kevin, I'll bring it along sometime, bit of a bugger to play now as GW/FW seem to have dropped MMrazors and spearhead seems to have been forgotten about, and Hestan has been nerfed, no more TL flamers, hammers and meltas as far as I can see. I'll play the army a few times but I don't think it will be competitive.

Hmm, the MM turret would be a straight forward enough kitbash to warrant doing though if you can be bothered with the faffing about.

no man he means the rules are gone. he has LOTS of MM razorbacks but GW have removed them as an option for some reason.

Hey guys, 

Posted in the other topic for Warhammer 40k discussion.

The rules Forgeworld and are contained within Vol 2: Second Edition of the Imperial Armour books.

Rename the razorback in the army builder list you make as they're 65pts standard (same as heavy bolter one).
