Countdown to Counter Offensive 2: Imperial Guard (Armored Company List)
Rob Van Pelt-Cathcart, a long-time Imperial Guard player, is bringing his massive army to Counter Offensive 2. 

Phalynxian 201 Armored Battalion: 1999 points  by Rob Van Pelt-Cathcart 
Without any real fanfare, this list is a run-of-the-mill armored company. I didnít invest in any doctrines or frills, just plenty of tanks for killing. It has a little bit of everything. 

  • Command Tank (HQ). Leman Russ Exterminator w/ twin-linked autocannon, sponson heavy bolter, hull-mounted heavy bolter, improved comms, searchlight, smoke launchers, extra armor, pintle heavy stubber
  • Tank Ace (Elites). Leman Russ Vanquisher w/ co-axial storm bolter, sponson heavy bolter, vanquisher battle cannon, hull heavy bolter, smoke launchers, extra armor, pintle heavy stubber
  • Storm Troopers (Elites). Storm Trooper Veteran Sergeant w/ power weapon, storm bolter, frag grenades, krak grenades. Seven Storm Troopers w/ hellguns, two w/ flamers, all w/ frag grenades and krak grenades. Chimera w/ multi-laser; hull heavy bolter, searchlight , smoke launchers, extra armor, pintle heavy stubber 
  • Storm Troopers (Elites). Storm Trooper Veteran Sergeant w/ power weapon, storm bolter, frag grenades, krak grenades. Seven Storm Troopers w/ hellguns, two w/ flamers, all w/ frag grenades and krak grenades. Chimera w/ multi-laser; hull heavy bolter, searchlight , smoke launchers, extra armor, pintle heavy stubber

I took a Basilisk for some indirect ability to find the enemy wherever they hide. I also have several Russes of different patterns in the troops, HQ, Elite, and Heavy sections. Obviously since the Commander and Ace have better BS scores, they got the tanks that could benefit more from that, such as the Vanquisher and Exterminator. I also threw in two squads of Storm Troopers to take up left over points and to provide some infantry support in case I need to get an objective. Lastly, the Hellhound is just fun, so hopefully my opponent brings the wieners to the game, because I am planning on a cookout!
