Its time to look at the lists readers are making, and see just what people are experimenting with. List building is just a ton of fun, and I will be posting up in the order I receive them.

So if you would like to submit an army list (if you already have an idea of what you might field), shoot me your list to share with others. Please title your email "8th Edition Army Submission" or similar, and shoot it off to natfka@live.com. Only first names will be used along with the submission.


I know people have seen the rules, so lets skip that part whether you might have read them at a shop or have access to them, and just see what everyone is thinking for their armies.


via Ryan, 1500pts Imperial Guard 
Here is a 1500 point IG army that takes a full Brigade and gets 13 command points.   The idea is two main parts.  

The first idea is a couple of big guns protected by a screening force of infantry.  All of the infantry have enough HQ to get orders, with heavy reliance on falling back and using "get back into the fight" to set up a counterpunch with demo charges or "first rank fire second rank fire".  The commisar and Priest will make the 50 man squad of conscripts very resilient and act as a force multiplier.  The sentinels and hell hound have the mobility to react to enemy maneuvers to break the defense.

The second main idea is leveraging the deepstrike capabilities of Tempestus Scions to disrupt and destroy the  back side of the opposing army.  Four squads kitted out with an array of weapon types allow for on demand deployment based on available targets.  Two Tempestor Primes have 4 orders between them, so they can "Take Aim!" with heavy plasma load out and reroll 1's to hit, or possibly "Bring it down" to reroll 1's to wound.  There is a lot of flexibility in this group.

Command points are used to negate mission special rules and to auto pass morale tests if there isn't a commisar nearby.
