Suddenly... tanks! Thousands of them!

10 Veterans

+forward sentries

10 Veterans
+power weapon
+3 meltaguns
+vox caster
+grenadiers

2 techpriests
+10 servitors

Primaris psyker

10 sanctioned psykers

10 sanctioned psykers

Company command squad
+vox caster
+sniper

3 basilisks
+camo netting

4 devil dogs
+camo netting

2 banewolves
+camo netting

Deathstrike missile launcher
+camo netting

8 chimeras
+camo netting

That's 3000 points, and 18 tanks. All with camo, so it's unlikely that you'll kill the artillery pieces, and unlikely that you'll get a 1st turn kill, if you go first. Also means I can sit in place and kill. Like?

It's good at a first glance, I'm not too familiar with the IG statlines to say much more though

They're not bad, it's quite nice, in my opinion. The basilisks are likely to kill over 25% of a unit in a turn, and the sanctioned psykers can use their power to reduce any enemies Ld by 9, to a minimum of 2. So, that's them running, stopping them from hitting me. Plus, it might take them off the board. The vets are mostly to fill up the obligatory troops, although the 5 fire points means that they can make use of BS4 and various weaponry. The primaris psyker is stupidly powerful, and can use a fire point.

The deathstrike is a d3+3" blast radius, and S10 AP1, so it's designed to make things spread out. The dogs and wolves, by contrast, are to blow up anything that isn't herded enough. Techpriests are used to follow the dogs/wolves around, repairing them when they need to, and one can look after the deathstrike/artillery.

The camo netting gives everything stealth, which should work very nicely, as well as being nice fluff-wise.

Renegade. I'd houserule a renegade inquisitor, if only for flavour, treat him as the company commander, and add him to a chaos side, if I could. I've been thinking about just having a stealth force for a while, maybe starting with the sniper squad, a bunch of vets in a camo chimera, and a psyker in one. Could be nice, storywise.
