Tactics:

This army is really centered around the idea of using the dark angels stratagem to increase plasma damage by 1. That means you’ll be dealing 2 damage on a normal shot or 3 damage when overcharged. You’ve got the command points. Use this every shooting phase that you can.

When deploying start off by screening your army with the conscripts. You’ll want to have 2 razorbacks on each flank since they are your fastest units and your most durable. They’re going to be your main objective grabbers. In the middle behind the conscripts drop all 15 hellblasters, the company master, lieutenant and chapter ancient. Their whole job is going to be running up the middle blasting everything they don’t like with plasma, rerolling 1’s to hit and wound and getting to shoot again on a 4+ when they die. In the backfield you’ll drop all 12 plasma cannons with another chapter ancient and lieutenant. These guys don’t want to move so they can reroll 1’s to hit and still get to reroll 1’s to wound and shoot again when they die. All in all you’ve got a strong presence on the flanks and center with a solid firebase to back it up.

The razorbacks are going to be a huge help dealing with hordes and all that plasma should make pretty short work of any armour you come across. The big weakness to this army is going to be anything with -1 to hit on it since you really don’t want to be overcharging in those situations. Thankfully the Dark Angels stratagem can help to mitigate that a bit by still dealing 2 damage on a regular shot.

You’ve also  got a few points to play around with if you want to give power weapons or an extra combi plas to one of your hq’s or toss storm bolters on all your razorbacks.
