We had 16 people show up at out ard boyz event in Bakersfield California. I saw chaos marines x 3. Space marines x6. Tyranids x2. Eldar x1. IG x1. Inquisition x1. Orks x1
I went with Blood Angels All Jump Pack and here is my list.
Death company x8
3x Vet Assault Squad 10xman. Powerfist, 2x Melta Gun
3x Assault Squad 10xman Powerfist
1x Assault Squad 5xman Powerfist.
3x Attack Bikes 3x multimelta
First Match: Chaos Space Marines
4x Plague Marine 8xman Powerfist champ. 2xmelta rhinos
I was able to charge on turn two. One squad of vets kept the two daemon princes occupied for the 3 turns that we played. Princes kept whiffing and killing two at a time.
I killed one prince with melta fire, Berserker Squad died to death company and lemartes. Dante charged plagues. Assault squads multicharged plagues and rhinos. Some Assault squads went after the two vindis. At the end I won with minor victory. 12 kill points to 4. I was too busy fighting I didnít get any objectives. We only played three turns. I had Lemartes, death company, 1 vet assault squad, 1 attack bike, 3 assault squads. He had Lash Prince, Greater daemon, 1x Plague Marine Squad, Oblits,
Second Match: Space Marines
Sternguard in Drop Pod
Dreadnought in drop pod
Tactical squad in drop pod
Tactical squad in razor back
Land Raider Crusader
I think thatís it.
I won with a minor victory. I had 2x assault squad, attack bikes, he had dreadnought, 2x land raiders, razorback. I also got a turn two charge. He had a lot of shooting but once I charged with everything at once he had no where to shoot. Powerfists are necessary in this army with so few meltas.
Third Match: Chaos Space Marines
Thousand sons in rhino
Chaos space marine squad
I killed Chaos Lord, Thousand sons and rhino, berserker squad, marine squad, bike squad, he killed 2x assault squads, 2x veteran squads. None got objectives. Again I didnít get time to move and reach them. Won minor victory.
I ended in third place with three minor victories and was the only one out of the group who went all three rounds without a loss. First Place went to Space Marines. He went one minor loss, two massacres. He lost in the first round. Well I feel like using the same list for the semis but remembering from going last year it was tough so I donít know how ill do. I am taking a way different list this year compare to last and this list is way better. Well see how I do.
I will be playing at Game Empire in Pasadena for the Semis.

Wow...nowadays, it's not often that you see a marine list do well that's not mechanized to some degree. Not only are you not mechanized, but you won without the use of any vehicles at all! Congrats on a job well done.
Honestly though, I think you will have a lot of trouble against stronger armies. I've seen marines lists with Shrike + 30 TH/SS termies and another with 6 land raiders at my local circuit. Imperial Guards with their blast weapons will just eat your army up. Just be prepared, because you will face those types of armies in the semis.
Thanks for doing a battle report.
I would worry about mech'dar though (especially Dark Eldar), as they can kill the bikes fast and then just shoot and move around everything else. Also in order to help you get the objectives, maybe drop a vet squad to get a unit and a half of tac marines? That would give you 3 scoring units that could focus just on objectives.
yeah thanks guys. against IG i dont think i would have a problem because i dont mind losing half my army as long i get to ur lines with the rest of it. I truly always charge on turn two. With eldar and dark eldar its kinda like playing cat and mouse since they move away and i just chase. I really have to multicharge almost everything to try and beat thunder termies and nob bikers. Havent had a chance to try it out but this list is so much fun i will gladly play it in the semis. Ill let you guys know how i do.

I'd enjoy a bit more details, interesting list though.
