Planetary Empires Lists 500/1000

Post by NemesisForce on Mon Jan 18, 2010 1:54 am

Next Friday one of our members at my local gaming club is starting a Planetary Empires campaign for us. Not sure really how it's going to go down but we're aiming for two quick 500 point Combat Patrol and one 1000 point doubles game for the first night. These are the two lists I'm contemplating:

500 Point CP:

2 x GK squads with Justicar and 4 x GK's
1 x GK squad with Justicar and 4 x GK's w/2 x pc's

Basically two assault and one heavy weapons squad.

My standard 1000 point list:

B-C w/psycannon and Hammerhand
4 x GKT's w/'cinnie

2 x GK squads with Justicar (mb's) and 6 x GK's (one squad with 'cinnie, the other pc)

LR w/extra armor

Any comments would be appreciated.

I like both lists. 15 PAGKs + 2 p-cannons for 500 pts is not bad at all.

Our 1000 pt list is very similar. Have you considered a stock GM? I know the trade off is one less PAGK for each squad and no pc, but its like having 2 more GKTs as far as wounds go. I think the biggest gain is the GMs I5 and the force-kill capability. Just a thought Very Happy

15 PAGKs plus two Psycannons are enough to handle most enemy units in CP, I'd say. Not that you have any heavier options with a pure GK force. <.<

The 1000 points force is quite standard I'd say. That raider will probably see some heavy fire against it, being alone though. But hey, it's hard to fit another raider in a 1000 points force, and doing so isn't always preferable.

And Rivan's point considering the GM is one worth considering too, but only removing two PAGKs and a psycannon would leave you at 1009 (if it is a PAGK psycannon that you remove) or 1004 points, meaning you'd have to remove a further item.

By the way, is the mission type played in the 1000 pts doubles predetermined, or will you roll for it?

Yes, I have considered a GM for this list. Since it will be a doubles game the loss of a few PAGK's may not be felt as much as if I were playing this list alone. I was also considering Stern as well as I have never fielded him before and this might be a good setting to test for myself how he plays out. I'm not sure how the doubles scenario will go. At this point I'm assuming it will be rolled for in the usual manner.

note: reason for edit in 1st post was spelling correction

I love the GM even at 1000 points so Stern might be a good compromise
