Don't forget to swap out one of your regular training doctrines for a special equipment doctrine. Based on what you've said about the Spireguard idea, maybe a Covert Strike or Forward Observation equipment doctrine might suit.

Just on the points count thing, regiment creation allows you 12 points to play with which covers your homeworld, commanding officer, regiment type, training, and special equipment. The drawbacks allow you to spend a little bit extra in other areas so that you have spent equal to or less than 12 points. You could actually have a complete regiment created based on your current selection if you swap out one of your trainings for special equipment and only take one of the drawbacks.

When you get to standard kit and extra goodies, everyone has a flat 30 points to spend. However, for every point under 12 that you spent in creating your regiment, you can an extra 2 points to upgrade/supplement your kit eg. regiment costed 10 points, therefore you have an extra 4 points for a total of 34 points when upgrading standard kit.

Hope that helps. Looking good so far.

Honestly, none of the special equipment doctrines interest me at all. Far as I remember, it didn't say one of the doctrines specifically HAD to be equipment - it only specified that one HAD to be Regiment Type, and we're only allowed a total of three doctrines all up.

As for the drawbacks... yeah, I know the book says only one, but Dom's been running with multiple drawbacks for his regiments, so... XD *shrug* House ruling it, I guess. And yeah, I know about the double leftover points going into extra equipment points, no worries.

I'm not too fussed about having only one or multiple drawbacks - either way, I'm most likely gonna end up with a glut of points that I won't really have anything to do with, even with the leftover points = equipment points thing.

Ah my bad, I actually didn't know that about the doctrines and how only one had to be Regiment Type.

And yeah, I might just be quiet so that I don't butt in too much. Sorry about that. If you have so many leftover points just go nuts and possibly equip them with some Best-quality equipment or something like that. With that many Drawbacks you're going to need it because your Spireguard have been through hell and back.

No worries, man! Butt in away, 'sall good. Very Happy

As for equipment, I'm trying to figure out whether I can replace the M36 Lasrifles entirely with the Triplex Lasrifles, or if they'll just end up with both versions, which doesn't make much sense to me. I could probably do it by just paying the points cost difference between their rarities, since the M36 is Common and the Triplex is Rare, which is a ten point difference. So instead of paying the full 15 for the Triplex and ending up with both, I pay only the 10 point difference and replace the M36 entirely, so they only have the Triplex Lasrifle as their main weapon. Would that work?

Other gear I'm considering:

Knife/bayonet - 2pts
Mono upgrade for the bayonets - 10pts
Laspistol and 2 charge packs as a sidearm - 5pts
Carapace Chestplate - 15pts

So much indecisiveness, so little time... XD

Okay, so gone with Grenade Launcher/Heavy Flamer as their Favoured Weapons, since as ship-board Spireguard they would've been trained/experienced more as ship boarding/counter-boarding crew rather than anything else. It just so happened that all those grenades and heavy flamers also worked pretty well against the occasional daemonic boarding, too. XD

Yea i missed the "only one" thing when i was looking at drawbacks, and several described by guys background exactly.

Gear looks good, may also want to look at Flash Goggles and Re-breathers tho, would suck to loose atmo.

Also i think for 5 points you can select an additional special weapon, which you could assign to some kind of shield to represent human sized boarding shields. I think the Suppression shields are closest.

Good quality suppression shield give 4 ap to the Arm and Torso, And allows a Basic weapon to be braced on it (letting u use the weapon one handed).

When you hit someone with it, its -15 to hit, but 1d10 shocking damage, alto the shocking does have the recharge rule.

with that and the carapace chest, the shield bearers will have a damn nice 10 Chest Armour! making them largely resistant to small arms fire.

Okay so I've updated the regiment, spent their gear points, and I think it's pretty much done for now bar some possible tweaking!
