From the a previous battle we played, my opponent is using a lot of Leman Russ tanks (irony). So I wanted a list that will threaten them. That's the reason of plenty of lascannons, altough I will need a 6 for penetrating their armor. 

The idea is to drop the dreadnought close to his tanks but not to far from my main forces. The grey hunter pack with the plasma gun will stay back to guard objectives and confront any deep striking units the enemy sends. They will also protect the Predator which will have the role of long range support with its twin linked lascannon. The Land Raider will roll along with the Rhino to support the Dreadnought and unleash the infantry as close to the enemy as possible. What I haven't decided yet is if I will put the WGBL with the bodyguards in the Land Raider or the Grey Hunter pack with the meltagun and the WG Pack Leader in TDA. I will probably go with the second option and have the terminators walk beside the armor. In that way they will be covered and they can also unleash their heavy weapons. Furthemore, because of their terminator armor, they can suck more punishment than the Grey Hunters. When close to the enemy they will probably go after some tanks and open them up with their chainfists, before assaulting the infantry. 

Hopefuly all will go well and the sons of Russ will emerge victorious! Keep an eye for a battle report at the end of the week.

For Russ and the Allfather!!
