Hey guys, I've had precisely 2 games of 30K so am still getting my head around it, so would like some feedback on this list. I'm not sure if it's missing out on some of the "toys" that other lists seem to have. So far this list has had 1 win and 1 loss both vs ravenguard. Looking for some suggestions on what to add.

HQ
Legion praetor - cataphractii armour, grenade harnessm deathshroud power scythe, digital weapons, rad grenades
4 deathshroud terminator command squad - meltabombs
Master of signals - artificer armour, power axe, melta bombs

Elite
2 apothecaries - both with augury scanners

Troops
20 man tactical squad - legion vexilla sergeant with artificer armour, rad grenades, powerfist
10 man tactical squad - legion vexilla sergeant as above
10 man tactical support squad - plasma guns

Heavy
land raider phobos - armoured ceramite
land raider phobos - armoured ceramite

comes in with 35 points left over....
The deathshroud and praetor take one landraider, the plasma squad in the other.

thoughts?

Auxiliary on the raiders & if possible a paragon blade on the praetor. Yes the scythe looks badass and fluffy but it's kind of wasting his initiative. AP2 is cool too

is it worth keeping the armored ceramite on the raiders or replacing them with auxillary drive?

It really depends on your local gaming group. Personally I'd go both now that raiders are cheaper.

Our group arms raced.
Melta tac support>
Ceramite>
Melta usage died off>
Ceramite died off

Might be time for some melt a cannon

No reason why that awesome scythe can't be a Paragon Blade. I'm sure they came in all shapes and sizes!

I'd also make those Tactical's 2x 15 man squads.

Also auxillary drive is worth it, landraiders get pened fairly easy in 30k & you'll want them getting your squishy infantry as far forward as possible

Yes, I reply to a lot of threads with images. That's because your posts are crap, and don't deserve anything more than a cursory Google image search.

That actually heavily depends on the local meta from the ( admittedly limited) games I've seen.

True, but at say 3-4k which is the usual there is just a lot of stuff in 30k that doesnt really care about A14. Its a small price to pay as well since the price of land raiders got dropped.
