as the title says I am teaching 3 people how to play warhammer 40k but the only problem is making 4 lists (one will be mine) that are Equal to one another (as I have 4 armies) the armies I have are Tau IG SM CSM(not going to get new dex cause its crap).
for tau i have this to work with
9 crisis suits (6 fire knife 3 tl F
6 stealth suits
6 pathfinders (3with railrifles)
2 railheads (Seeker missiles)
2 broad sides
and 20+ drones
4 command squads
4 infantry squad all the same (HB and GNL)
2 lascannon HWT
2 autocannon HWT
2 mortar teams
1 Missile launcher team
SM and CSM (can mix and match)
1 lib with jetpack
39 marines (2 ML, 2 flamers, 1 hb)
5 termies (2 asscannons)
10 assault marines
10 scouts with sinperrifle
1 Daemon prince
what should I do
Tau 12/1/3 (3000 pts)
IG 4/1/0 (2500 pts)
SM 3/1/0 (1500 pts)
CSM 1/0/1 (1500 pts)(W/D/L )
Make a list for each, or go to each separate forum and have someone make a list out of the models you have and offer advice on said list? And the new codex chaos is definitely not crap, and if your gonna teach someone how to play, you probably should do it with the right codex.
From my experience, teaching people to play can be kinda difficult when you are teaching that many. The key is not to overwhelm them with too much stuff, keep it simple, and as such the lists need to be kinda simple with out a bunch of gear or whatnot.
I would make all four lists at around 500 to 750 or so points which should allow you to fill out your compulsory choices, and then a few extra maybe if go towards 750.
So for example:
HQ - Suit w/ necessary gear
Troop - 2x Firewarriors (10 each) mounted in devilfish
Around 500 if my memory serves me right (I don't play tau, my friend does)
HQ - Libie or Captain w/ gear
Troop - 2x Tac squad (5 each). 1 w/ ML or HB, 1 w Flamer
Something similar to SM, The Demon prince would be nice for variety, but that would depend on the points spent on him.
IG: (sadly don't really come alive at 500 pts but oh well)
HQ - Command Squad w/ mortar
Troop - Infantry platoon (command squad, 2 reg squads w/ HB and GNL)
Troop - AF squad w special weapon and properly equiped Chimera
These should allow the people you are trying to teach a chance to see differnt tactics each army uses, different unit types (tanks, infantry), and various characteristics of each army.
Good luck, hope this helps.
Battlesuits, putting the BS in BullS*%t.
first off the chaos codex is not crap, geez, people hear of the Cheesyness of Lash of ssummission and something is deemed total cheesy crap
and it would be more helpful to have them play against the new chaos, because strategies against old chaos isn't always gunna work against ew chaos (and you'd make them mad for not allowing them to have Cheese marines with AP3 bolters)
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
