A B-C leading a squad of IST is a little unorthodox but it could work. The LRC will definitely give you an edge at 500 points as it can put out a squads worth of dakka all by itself. Any heavy weapond in the IG squads?

well depend on what type of game he's playing, i guess. 500 points is usually combat patrol, but then he can't take the BC or land raider, but that only requrires one troop choice. perhaps it's another varient like that?

if this list is legal (your playing some specialty game type) be careful of cheap melta! I can see deepstriking dreads really tearing it up in this type of format (which is probably why combat patrol has the armor restriction) so being taken a lot and if they come in and destroy the LRC, even if they die to return fire they've basically destroyed most of your force.

and tau probably wont resist throwing a railgun or two in or cheap melta pirahna/crisis to deal with this sort of list. Fun when it works, but i imagine its not so fun when the LR dies early.

WORST LIST. jk. but your avg list has a lost of anti tank in it, esp IG i playe in 2 combat patrol tournaments and lost in the first round both times. the first was with a PAGK AND IST list w/ dread and the i played sm and they killed me w/ heavy wpns. the next tournament i took a sm list with ISTs instead of scouts nd it went better but my dice rolls were abysmal ( 5 kraks missiles all 1s for penetration on a chimera and 2 multimelta shots that missed) DH 500pts list are very had to make and even harder to wi w/ because 18 PAGKs are about 500pts.

My bad never new u had to meet your army list req. b4 bringing allied troops. This was just list for a miniturized game. thats why i took the IG for objectives and the IST squad with meltas for anti tank so i could be versatile. But i chose the LRC because its both anti tank and infantry killer. Which is imo the best LR handsdown

Just watch out for those pesky melta guns. It would be quite a blow to lose half your army points in one shot.

lrc in 1000pts or less is a huge risk because you can bring about 7 grey knights to the list and then you're done. and it is a huge fir magnet. as Brother Nemesis said.

Your relying on the anti tank at very short range, and most normal anti tank doesn't have the same problem.
In smaller games I'd be more inclined to use a LR rather than a LRC your getting more effective anti tank, with the same almost impossible to kill armour, and you don't need the shorter range. At 500 points I'd be a bit hesitant using a LR of any variant. Its hard though because at 500 points we REALLY suffer from PAGK's being rediculously overpriced.

ya our shit really is overpriced, it be nice to see model pt reduction in the next DH codex. And u make a good pt about LR vs LRC. i just figured id c more troops then actual heavy suport on my opps side. so a lrc will help clear out troops while i get the brother captain and the ist squad with the meltas closer to there heavys

really all we truely need to at least be able to play combat patrol with grey knights instead of inquisition is to be able to put heavy weapons in GK squads and transport options
