Armies of the Late Heresy

Sorry for the long gap between articles *insert generic excuse here*. The post-Nova of wrapping up my militia force(a proper article on them is in the works) has faded and I’m looking to 2020 projects, all of which are geared towards the Solar War and The Scouring.

This first list is of course, another militia army. I wrote it before reading The Lost and the Damned, but now that I’ve done so I can’t wait to get this force assembled. The theme was taken from a smell blurb in Solar War about an orbital platform being stormed by thousands of traitor militia juiced up on combat stims.

HQ: Force Commander + charnabal saber + iron halo + cyber familiar + melta bombs + planetary overlord + Muster of Worlds- Alchem-Jackers and Feral Warriors 175 pts

Discipline Master Cadre- 5x Discipline Masters + melta bombs + power weapons 160 pts

ELITES: Medicae Detachment + 2x orderlies 50 pts

Ogryn Brute Squad + 3x ogryns + 6x power weapons + carapace armor 370 pts

TROOPS: Infantry Squad + auxilia pistols + krak grenades + vexilla + Frenzon Dispensers + Blade and Fury + power weapon and melta bombs(sergeant only) 135 pts

Infantry Squad + auxilia pistols + krak grenades + vexilla + Frenzon Dispensers + Blade and Fury + power weapon and melta bombs(sergeant only) 135 pts

Infantry Squad + auxilia pistols + krak grenades + vexilla + Frenzon Dispensers + Blade and Fury + power weapon and melta bombs(sergeant only) 135 pts

Infantry Squad + auxilia pistols + krak grenades + vexilla + Frenzon Dispensers + Blade and Fury + power weapon and melta bombs(sergeant only) 135 pts

Infantry Squad + auxilia pistols + krak grenades + vexilla + Frenzon Dispensers + Blade and Fury + power weapon and melta bombs(sergeant only) 135 pts Dedicated Transport- Gorgon Heavy Transporter + lascannon sponsons + 2x twin lascannon + armored ceramite 360 pts

Fire Support Squad + heavy flamers 125 pts

FAST ATTACK: Sentinel Scout Squadron + 3x sentinels + 6x multi-melta 240 pts

Sentinel Scout Squadron + 3x sentinels + 6x lascannon + 3x hunter-killer missiles 255 pts

Thunderbolt Heavy Fighter + 4x Hellstrike missiles 200 ptss

HEAVY SUPPORT: Carnodon Strike Squadron- 3x Carnodon Tanks with heavy flamer sponsons 180 pts

Heavy Ordinance Battery- 3x Earthshaker Cannons 225 pts

3,000 PTS

So I tooled the wargear and provenances in this list to give the maximum number of attacks to each model. With the +1 attack from the Auxilia pistols and Feral Warriors, and then Rage from the Frenzon dispensers, your basic infantry have FIVE attacks on a charge at WS4. Their modest toughness values and armor save aren’t particularly important. They’re there to fight and die for the favor of the dark gods.

I wrote this next list solely because I got an amazing deal on a large force of Imperial Fists bikers already painted up and ready for the table. This list is no way geared towards making the most of my favorite legion’s rules or characters, but honestly, that’s half the point. This force will represent a mobile column on the Ring of Iron or maybe a quick reactive detachment to address an attack in the Imperial Palace.

HQ: Praetor + space marine bike + iron halo + Divining Blades + digital lasers + melta bombs 305 pts ROW: Pride of the Legion

Command Squad + 2x chosen + space marine bikes + melta bombs + 5x power lances

TROOPS: Veteran Tactical squad(Stalkers) + 5x marines + melta bombs + nuncio vox + 2x flamers + 5x combi-flamers + power fist(sergeant) 310 pts

Dedicated Transport: Rhino 35 pts

Terminator Squad + 2x terminators + 7x combi-plasma + 5x power fists + 2x chainfists + teleportation transponder 344 pts

Terminator Squad + 1x terminator + 7x combi-plasma + 4x power fists + 2x chainfists 302 pts

FAST ATTACK: Javelin Attack Speeder Squadron- 3x javelin speeders + 1x twin-linked lascannon + 3x multi melta + 6x hunter-killer missiles 235 pts

Outrider squad- 9x Outriders + melta bombs + 3x power lances + Outrider Sergeant with power lance 370 pts

Outrider squad- 6x Outriders + melta bombs + twin-linked melta guns 360 pts

HEAVY SUPPORT: Sicaran Arcus Strike Tank + dozer blade + neutron flux warheads + pyrax warheads + skyspear warheads 275 pts

Sicaran Venator Tank Destroyer + lascannon sponsons + dozer blade 235 pts

2996 pts

This list, to me, personifies the desperate defense of the Sol System. I imagine this force charging the traitor lines; hopelessly outnumbered, but resolved to sell their lives dearly. Also, those power lances are S7 on a charge, which is pretty okay against Demons and Mech.

As always, thank you for your time.
