This is my very first attempt at creating an army list. Well, not actually "creating", but updating The Ulani list with a few touches, so kudos to the EpicUK team for their good work.

Here it goes:

Konig Armoured Reg 1.1.pdf [30.08 KiB]

Stats coming... but basically the same as Epic UK Ulani (Conquerors are 25cm 5+ RA, Tank Hunters are AT2+ Sniper, etc...)

All comments welcome 8)

That looks great!

A friend is a die hard tread-head, and always plays Ulani, but it always felt like he had a hand tied behind his back. I tried many times to help him come up with a good list out of it but always found it came out as a big static lump, rather than a blitzkrieg army.

Loving the conquerers in core, also love the idea of 6 strong hellhound formations ! However I think the other key improvement you have made is letting the supreme commander be an upgrade to any tank formation - this stops the SC always being the BTS (at least with out adding another even more humongous formation.) Along with the other cheaper formations above it should allow a higher activation army to work and let the army play in the more fluid afrika korps style that it always seemed it was aiming for.

One question - tank riders? The current Ulani ones are rubbish as far as we could tell (Always seemed better to spam griffin upgrades for 50pnts.) but some kind of infantry would be good. perhaps as an upgrade for the salamanders something like the 8th army and their Bren carriers ?

Thanks JZ - I'm about to move from the end of the earth to the middle of nowhere; to a new area where no one plays epic - I might just do that ! :-) Need to get my life in order first though.

Ooops I totally forgot to include some infantry there. What about the standard Armored Fist Platoon (Chimeras+Infantry)???? The Salamanders+Infantry sounds great though: Scouts with some staying power.

In the top row, there is still Ulani listed. Guess thats a typo ;)
Perhaps you could also replace the 'o' in Konig with the ö, for proper spelling (König is the german word for King). I always frown when German words are misspelled and used for coolness
(Kreig instead of Krieg is a prime example here)

Another idea: What about specialized tanks which encourage a bit of scratchbuilding? For example dedicated anti infantry formations like the Leman Russ Punisher? Or hull modifications with heavy bolters?
Just some ideas which come to my mind :)

Ja ich weiss, ich spreche Deutsch ;D but it is set as Konig in the background (famous armoured regiments) so I don't know...

I always wanted to see the Punisher and the Annihilator in Epic, each one specialized in AP and AT. Is there already a Gatling Punisher cannon in Epic somewhere (statswise).??

Yeah as LB notes, the actual planet exists in the lore/fluff as that.

The community stated the Punisher up a few years back but the only list, AFAIK, that currently uses(d) it is my Penal Legion list. See my sig to a compiled PDF of all those "red-headed stepchildren" needing love. :D None of these should be taken as holy writ and are open to debate but were discussed to provide a basic starting point for use (I had taken it upon myself to keep a running log of them in one spot for convenience).

edit:
For the lazy and the fact this document needs updating as many units now have homes =>

Leman Russ Punisher
AV 20cm
A:4+ C:6+ F:2+
Punisher Gatling Cannon 20cm 15cm (restated as 15 but I never updated) 2xAP3+disrupt
2x Heavy Bolter 30cm AP5+
Lascannon 45cm AT5+
Reinforced Armour, Thick Rear Armour

Leman Russ Annihilator
AV 20cm
A:4+ C:6+ F:5+
Twin Lascannon 45cm AT4+
Lascannon 45cm AT5+
Reinforced Armour

Both IIRC were expected to be cheaper than than the standard LR but no prices were suggested.

Perhaps even change the hull weapon on the Punisher? HB hull ftw.
There is also the Vulture Punisher, which sports the same gun, I think. Maybe longer barrels for more range. But I think those are just AP3 and thats it.

Hi Jimmy
how updated are your modules? I have V 1.1.13, and am interested to find out if there has been any progress with it since then.

A finished version with stats is available.

Just my version of an armoured reg., Ulani style, no experimental units whatsoever AFAIK. Going to playtest it next weekend.

I was looking for Punisher Cannon rules when I came across this. Yours does seem a bit OP as even Hellhounds Inferno cannon is only one AP3+ and no disrupt and it is supposed to be the ultimate infantry fighting vehicle IG has. Yours is a lot like my take on the Leman Russ Incinerators Volkite Demi Culverin that initially was 45cm 2xAP3+/AT5+ with disrupt but now I'm using the semi-official nerfed AP4+/AT6+ for the time being. I feel it should have at least AT6+ component like your basic autocannon. The punisher I'm now using in Valkyrie is 45cm 2xAP3+/AT5+, though I'm not sure if they have the same stats in 40k. Marine assault cannon is 30cm AP5+/AT5+, well that's a bit off too I think.
