Imperial Guard versus Blood Angels Pre-Game thoughts

Howdy folks!

Dok and I plan on playing a couple of games this weekend. We are going to run a round 3 of Orks Vs. GK which will have a full picture battle report. We will also be doing a mini battle report on our 2000 BA vs IG game but I am missing a few tanks still and no one wants to see a game full of proxies. :(

It should almost be as epic as the battle over Yavin 4!


So with that in mind, I had mentioned earlier that I was switching over to Guard and I think this is a grand opportunity to test out a few things.

Here is my list for 2k:

HQ
Company Command Squad in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Flamer
4 Plasma Guns
Melta Bombs (5 loose points)
Company Command Squad in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Flamer
4 Plasma Guns

-No elites-

Troops
Veteran Squad with 3 Meltaguns in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Bolter
Veteran Squad with 3 Meltaguns in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Bolter
Veteran Squad with 3 Meltaguns in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Bolter
Veteran Squad with 3 Meltaguns in a Chimera with Multi-Laser and Heavy Bolter

Fast Attack
Vendetta with Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Vendetta with Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Vendetta with Heavy Bolter Sponsons

Heavy Support
Hydra Flak Tank Battery
2 Hydras
Hydra Flak Tank Battery
2 Hydras
Leman Russ Executioner with Lascannon and Plasma Cannon Sponsons.

________________________________________________________
I feel this is pretty standard list with the added Leman Russ because:
1. I have the model
2. We know Dok will be facing one in a future match in the WarMasters League.
3. PLASMA MOTHER FUCKER!

I wanted to use my Psycher Battle Squad, but I am short on points and I feel like the 2nd HQ is better here than then the potential boom that the PBS can bring.

I need to keep him off me somehow, and that stands to be the biggest challenge. AV 12 is not that strong and it will be hard to keep his fast tanks off my sides.

I learned quite a bit from getting my ass handed to me at the BAO by Christian Allesi (who won the whole deal) so I will take some of the aggressive tactics he used into this game with me.

My track record vs Dok is not very good, so only time will tell how this game will go.

Wish me luck!

    Guard at 2k is ridiculous...
