What to take...

Just curious.... amongst my many future project ideas is a stormcast vanguard army (as in vanguard models)

Just wondering what people suggest a vanguard list would look like if I want it to be cool as possible.... happy to mix non vanguard stuff in, but would want it to be mostly vanguard.

Every list I put together seems to throw a massive unit of long strikes in an anvils army and build around that- which seems boring... so any ideas for a more varied list ūüôā

Look at the huge vanguard auxiliary chamber battalion, it's doable at 2500 and with it you'be basically got everything. Anvils Longstrikes are the most powerful Vanguard unit, though (some would argue the only one)

It's doable at 2000!

Same situation here. I’m first building up to 1,5K as we play that most often but I just went with 6 long strikes because they are cool. And I just play another stormhost to keep myself from just defending those all day. 
Added to that I have 10 sequitors from the soul wars set to be more of an anvil. Because flying all over the place is cool... but it’s kind of pointless without that anchor unit imo. 
So I’m currently painting up to:

I have only played them in parts though so far. But I like all the different parts. A lot.
Just a shame I can’t fit the aether wings in. Because those are also great fun. 

(Just now realised I could take the gryph charger away from the lord arcanum and fit in those aether wings... but then he doesn’t fit the them anymore. Hmm it’s a puzzle at 1,5K)

Neave Blacktalon 
Knight-Heraldor 
Battleline
5 x Vanguard-Hunters

¬†Vindicators for me as well ūüėĀ

Id love a venator in my collection as well. Just feel the model is slightly to bulky so I’m looking out for conversion opportunity.

regarding the list itself I like it. Currently I want that block if sequitors. Just because I need something sturdy in my armies. Solely movement shenanigans armies I never get to work. Maybe with more games underneath my belt.
