    Astra Militarum Tank Core @ 2000.

    So, I've been gone from wargaming for a while, and gone from Warseer for 8 years. Now, I'm moving from Fantasy to 40k.

    I've already bought models and assembled them during lockdown at work.

    6 Leman Russ tanks
    3 with battle cannons, plasma sponsons, mix of heavy flamer and bolter on hull, 1 is Command.
    2 With punisher gatlings, 1 has 3 heavy flamers, the other is command with lascannon and 2 heavy bolters
    1 with demolisher cannon, 2 heavy bolters and a heavy flamer.

    1 Baneblade
    2 heavy flamer sponsons and a heavy stubber added.

    1 chimera with heavy bolters

    2 techpriests

    I've ordered 2 basilisks to add to this. I also plan on using the Gunnery Experts and Jury-Rigged Repairs Doctrines, and giving the Baneblade the Steadfast Leviathon rather than taking a Warlord trait.

    My standing questions are how do Tank Companies end up playing? I know that my Leman Russ will get Defenders of Humanity in a Spearhead Detachment, but should I be more or less worried about taking fire with T8 across the field? I don't know anything about the local gaming groups yet, and I haven't played warhammer since before End Times, so I felt it was time to enter 40k and get that tank army I always wanted but never had cause to play.

    It's good to be back, Warseer!

    Hmm... I didn't post a proper list, did I? Well, here's what I've got so far.

    Super Heavy Auxillary
    Baneblade with 2 heavy flamer sponsons
    550

    Spearhead Detachment

    HQ
    2 tank commanders
    One with Punisher Gatling and 2 Heavy Bolters, lascannon
    240
    One with Battle Cannon, plasma cannons, heavy bolter, relic goes here.
    230

    Heavy
    4 Leman Russ

    1 with Punisher, 3 heavy flamers
    210

    2 with Battle Cannon, 2 Plasma Cannons, Heavy Flamer
    205
    205

    1 With Demolisher, 2 heavy bolters and heavy flamer
    195

    Elites
    2 Techpriests
    35
    35

    Transport
    Chimera
    2 heavy bolters, 2 lasgun arrays
    95

    Total: 2000 pts

    Again, custom Regiment with Jury-Rigged and Heavy Gunner. I haven't decided on a relic, but it's going on my Battle Cannon Commander. I have 6 Command Points.

    Anyone play with an Imperial Guard Tank Core? Suggestions? No, I'm not going to suddenly add a bunch of guardsmen, I'm playing my niche for a while first... once I can start playing! Emperor bedamn this newest lockdown!

    It's a good start, but I think you're missing a couple of troops from the org chart.

    What? No I'm not. This is a Spearhead Detachment, minimum of 1HQ and 3 Heavies, no Troops required (or wanted).
