To be honest, all I can do is drool at this thread. I have no book. :(

I've only really been through the army list section of the book a few times but this looks like a fairly balanced list to be honest, obviously Lupercal is going to be a hell of a noticeable presence on the field, but even without him I reckon this could hold its own against most other armies out there.

I'd say it looks like it might get a little outgunned in early turns, but with a big tactical squad to soak it up and two rhinos to hopefully split low AP fire, I don't think it'd be too much of an issue unless it was a uber-tailored Guard list or somesuch you were up against.

That's all I can really say, other wise it looks to be a cracking list! Good call on giving the command squad a sawbones... I've lost count of how many small but expensive units I've lost due to lack of survivability (or a transport to bravely hide them in).

How much of this will be appearing at out March gathering, chap?

Not bad. I like it. Very balanced.
