I'm a fan of this v0.7

I'll have a play around and see what I can come up with :)

Though now I need to go on a hunt for some good Mukaali proxies

====================================================
Quick edit after playing around with the list and I keep getting stuck with the traditional guard 1 core for 2 support.

250pts left over and no decent way to spend it.

Current build is:

MEch Inf Compay 400 (450)
Sup commander stnd 50
10gaurd
2snip
7chimera

Anti Aircaft Platoon (175)
4 Chimera
4 Sabers

Hellhounds (250)
6 Hellhounds

Mukaali Company (300)
10 Mukaali

Griffon Squadron 175
3x Griff

Griffon Squadron 175
3x Griff

Inf COmpany (275)
Sabre

Tauros Platoon (200)

Tauros Platoon (200)

Thunderbolt (150)

Thunderbolt (150)

Marauder Squad (250)


12 activation's is nothing to scoff at but a lot of this is light vehicles or fragile units of three.
I know I could go another bomber and take me up to 13 activations easily but I'd just love to be able to get another guard unit in. Something like the light artillery or the unit of sentinels.

What's out thoughts on going 1 core to 3 support for this list?

Also just a quick question, is the upgrade limiting me to a single sabre for core, or is it an upgrade with sabre platforms being 25ea? Thus allowing me to buy 3 for a core formation?

Why not grab a Knight, and 75pts of Upgrades?

Or, just a basic Inf Company?

And/or drop the Marauders because they are Marauders. :-P
(And then you have 500pts to play with)

Traditionally, Guard lists have only been allowed to take one of each upgrade, per formation.

Hey Jimmy, the army list looks good - the Knights do seem overpriced though. In the Knight World list, 3 Knights (Paladin/Lance) cost only 300 points. Due to the understandable lack of traditional Guard WE support, the Knights become a more important option in the list so I'd suggest a points drop to 300 for three. They could be priced at 100 points each or a higher price for one Knight and a discount for each additional Knight after that as it is done with Ork formations. Just my two cents

Note these are Questoris statted Knights - statted to match the modern GW plastic model, not the E40k era Paladins.
So they're a bit better.

So they're Primaris Knights then? ;)

Fair enough

Hi.

This weekend I'm going to a tournament in Madrid (Spain). We will be 12 players. I'll try this list:
Companies
Infantry Comp @ 250
Sabre @ 25
Commissar @ 0
Infantry Comp @ 250
HQ @ 50
Sabre @ 25
Commissar @ 0
Mukaalis (6+4) @ 300
Commissar @ 0
Mukaalis (6+4) @ 300
Commissar @ 0

Support
Tallarn Sentinels @ 150
Dessert Riders @ 175
Teleport @ 50
Commissar @ 0
Conquerors @ 325
Conquerors @ 325
Rough Riders @ 175
Commissar @ 0
Hellhounds (6) @ 250
Griffon (6) @ 175
AA Platoon @ 175

Total 3000

My intention is to try the rule of garrison two extra units to put them near, according to the game, the Mukaalis or the Conquerors next to the two infantry formations and the Rough Riders.

As I need the 3k points in Tallarn to do this, I've omitted the aircrafts and the IKs. That's why I've use that AA platoon.

I think that the list fits well with the spirit of the Tallarn Desert Riders and use most of the units.
