56th List(s)

This post will be slightly different from the previous lists that I've posted for two main reasons. Firstly this is more a of a WIP, as I currently only have some of the models and secondly, this will only ever form an allied detachment or formation, and not my main force. As such the list will be in two parts, what I have and what I am building towards.

Current models - 343

Command Squad - 120
Tempestor Prime with Bolt pistol, Vox-caster, 3x Hot-shot volley gun

Squad Red - 111
Tempestor with Bolt pistol, vox-caster, 7x Scions

Squad Blue - 111
Tempestor with Bolt pistol, vox-caster, 7x Scions

I will be adding some extra special weapons to the above squads (when I get the models), probably flames to compliment and also be interchangeable with the below squads.

The next list will for the ground attack formation, and is currently devoid of models

Ground Assault Formation - max 1010

Commissar - 25
With Bolt gun

Command Squad - 210
Tempestor Prime with Bolt pistol, Vox, 3x Melta guns
Taurox with Gatling cannon

Troop 1 - 245
Sgt with Bolt pistol, Vox, 9x Scions, 2x melta gun
Taurox with Gatling cannon

Troop 2 - 265
Sgt with Bolt pistol, Vox, 9x Scions, 2x Plasma gun
Taurox with missile launcher

Troop 3 - 265
Sgt with Bolt pistol, Vox, 9x Scions, 2x Plasma gun
Taurox with missile launcher

At present, the MT force at the top, is used as part time allies for either of the two AM lists, deep striking in behind the enemy or by a problem unit. The vox casters are there to ensure orders get through, as these are a key part of their effectiveness.  Most of the time, these units will be an either/or choice, rarely used together, but it's nice to have options.

When the formation is complete, the top list will form the vanguard while the formation rolls along behind. The formation can be adjusted as needs be as well, just taking minimal squads drops the price to around 790 or even at the most basic 600pts, although you don't get much for that.
