Long time wolf player, but I've always loved my fiery brethren. I've been thinking of putting together a small army for team games and was wondering on how some fun/fluffy sternmanders would be decked out.
1.) I thought about this layout to run around in a razorback. This unit would zoom to a decent mid-field position to use their multi-meltas. 40 point LoS blocker will help them secure where ever they set up. The combi-flamers and powerfist are just in case kinda deals for those faster assault units that get to close. Not sure if I should just make the multi-meltas meltaguns for better mobility.
6 Sternguard - x2 Multi-melta, x2 combi-flamers, Sergeant w/ powerfist - 195 pts
Razorback - 40 pts
2. ) Cover breakers, for those annoying units that hunker down in cover these guys will break them. With dragonfire bolts and lots of flamers this is the infiltrator/heavy weapon squad killing squad. I really like the idea of this squad. While not that great against Space Marines, with Vulkan all your flamers will more than likely wound and force tons of armor saves.
8 Sternguard - x2 heavy flamers, x2 combi-flamers, x1 powerfist - 255pts
Drop pod - 35 pts
3. ) Bunker down, with a techmarine in the army these guys sit in cover and dish out some fire.
6 Sternguard - x2 lascannon - 155 pts
I'm inclined to lean towards option 2. It's expensive, but bar dropping them on marines or termies, they will reek havoc. Four templates that can re-roll wounds, special ammunition, and three powerfist attacks on a charge.
