Hi,

Anyone interested in a Tallarn army? I just saw the Dark Realm Minitures Standard Infantry, and it really inspired me :)

Tallarn army is mainly a light, fast one, with lots of Sentinels, Salamanders, OR armoured stuff. Inspired by the mechanized/tank desert wars of 1941-43, and the Gulf War (Iraqi themed army). With some "appearing from nowhere" light scout units..

Is there any need of a Tallarn army list, or just play with Steel Legion, with another paint scheme/different minis? :)

I'm thinking of:

-Rough Riders with Scout/Infiltrator,
-Tanks/infantry that not moved previously in the game -Invulnerable Save

True. :) But do they need a new list?

I think since there's already a couple of good Tank Regiment lists, a Light Infantry list would be fun.

Special abilities I can see would be:

- Fond of Sniper Rifles; Sniper Rifles instead of Missile Launchers?

- Preponderance of Scouts?;Perhaps space for a new type of human Scout unit?

- They use horses and Mukaali as Rough Riders. Mukaali would be "heavy" Rough Riders with a RA 5+ save?

- Lack of AV's ; No AV or WE units except Titans?

- Fond of sentinels; Give 'em the rocket sentinel?
Image

- Light Equipment only ; Thudd guns & Heavy Mortars as the heaviest artillery available?

They'd seem pretty well covered by the Tank Legion and Steel Legion lists. However give a stab at it. Always could be a fun Fan-list

Thinking of something like Alaitoc eldar -Invulnerable Save/Teleport special scouts, Scout+ Sentinel mixed units.. Special Sentinels :)
A high number of units with Infiltrator skills, Infantry Companies with scout sniper upgrade!

We should keep the tanks in the list :) At least Salamanders Scout, maybe 6 unit strong Tank platoons, with a few lighter variants! Invilnerable Save for a vehicle, that not moved previously in the game = camo netting, etc

I wouldn't give Invulnerable Save, that's totally not logical. If you get hit by a Volcano Cannon no amount of Camo Netting will help ;) I like the general concept however so perhaps instead vehicles count as in-cover when not moving?

Post subject:  Re: Tallarn Desert Regiment

Good idea :)

Cover save for the vehicles, and Invulnerable Save for the special scout unit!
I will spend some time with braintsorming, asking around experienced IG players!

Any units, that we should not include?

Superheavies should be out for this list as while they are accomplished tank legionaries, that'd be better covered by the Minervan Tank Legion list already.

I'd like to see Larger more varied sentinel formations, teleport scouts, and E&C's suggestion for Mukaali sounds grand. Detachment sized (4-6???) Leman Russ, perhaps with Exterminator option, and Artillery formations only and probably 2:1 for the core Infantry formations. I like Scout vehicles however. :D They seem like they use lots of support formations from the FW stuff I've seen.

There is already a Tallarn list. Don't remember who came up with this.

Well then there we are! :)

having read the post that's eerily similar to what I had in my head which tells me I've read this before. Perhaps we should see about merging / sticky this thread?

where'd you find that anyways, BL?

Nice! :D

It needs a little update, but the concept is almost the same!
