Imperial Fists Army List - Horus Heresy [1850]

This list is based upon my original 1500 point list and my first game. I'm using the Onslaught FOC by the way in case you're interested. This is a very elite army as it has a low model count but every unit really packs a punch. You'll find that 30k Space Marine armies typically require 500+ points in comparison to 40k Space Marine armies to generate close to the same model count. The next step will be a 2500 point army list which is typical for games of 30k

The squads are well protected and mobile as designed. Some changes to the original 1500 list are as follows:

- Terminators: Exchange pair of lightning claws for another power fist and combi-bolter
- Leviathan Dreadnaught: Exchange storm cannon for grav-flux bombard, Phosphex discharge and Volkite cavilers
- Templar Brethren: Exchange master-crafted solarite gauntlet for nuncio-vox and plasma pistol

There was a suggestion to drop the Centurion for more terminators but I have found Feel No Pain to be more worthwhile plus the WS5 will net more hits over the course of several rounds of melee. I have added quad launcher artillery and an apothecary to flesh out the list. As you'll see the boost in model count is incremental. The army could face some challenges versus heavy mech but otherwise is well rounded.
