Commentary: USA ETC army lists
I continue to comments ETC army lists. This time, comment on army lists of USA team, which looks relatively good. Surely I do not want to be compared with Internet celebrities such as Kirby or Stelek. All opinions which are published in this post are only my personal opinions, they aren’t be absolutly true and any of readers can disagree with me.

I’m not sure about this footdar list, especially with Wraithguard unit. Ok, they go close as possible and Warp Spiders can do some disturming factor and with fortune can arrives to center of battle before they die. They can generally works well only with few match ups.
Next list, whitch can works well only with few match ups. Dread with MM without pod is inefficiency before reach range for effective shooting. When Land Raider with terminators and dreads are lost, then whole battle is lost.
Battle wagon spam. I think list is ok, bud be carefull for match ups. Why ork boyz units consist 18 green skins only?
As I mentioned in precedent posts with army lists comments, It seems, for me that they can do very well, in just few match ups. Most of BT lists seems to me better, than this one.
MSU Wolves. Many Grey Hunters units with rhinos for move forward and in lasplas razorbacks for take and hold. They looks fine, I like it!
Jays variation on army from Adepticon 2011. He know, what tyranids can do well. Be carefull for heavy land rainder armies.
Command squads, psykers and veterans embarked to chimeras. Platoons can holt home objectives and try open some tanks with lascannos or can be embarked into vendetas to taking objectives at long distance. Seems like nice guard build for me.
List is faulty. Daemon Hammers for Justicars is 10pts only, not 25pts. So you have points for another rhino as you needed them. Librarian will join purifiers, it’s only reason for argue with that purifiers are only nine men. Becouse all infantry units haven’t transports, I think, that army is poor against ani infantry shooting even they can benefit from shoulding. Stricly average (It has nothing to do with Brent’s blog) GK list.
Team of America have some good lists as Space Wolves, Imperial Guard or Tyranids, but have som crack lists like BT or Eldars. Team’s overall is standard. Nothing extra strong and nothing worst.
