    500pt Tourney

    Ok so I haven't played in years and am getting back into the game.
    Local shop is having 500pt tourneys in summer and winter and I figure this would
    be a good starting point. This is what I came up with. I'm a total noob and would
    appreciate some good criticism

    135 Lord
    Mok
    power fist
    combi-melta

    175 8CSM
    Icon CG
    melta gun
    Rhino

    190 9CSM
    Icon CG
    melta gun
    Rhino

    figured the lord would cruise with the 8man squad....

    Give a lightning claw to the lord so his Ini is not wasted and can still do damage.

    Since you're not using the CSM to get up to 10 models to have 2 special weapons, might as well run them minimum sized.

    Here is what I would play at 500 points

    Lord, combi-melta, lightning claw 125
    5 CSM, meltagun in a rhino with extra combi-bolter 125
    5 CSM, meltagun in a rhino with extra combi-bolter 125
    5 CSM, meltagun in a rhino with extra combi-bolter 125

    When you need to assault you combine charge to get more attacks.

    At 500 points people can't pack that much firepower so 3 rhinos is pretty survivable. With the meltaguns you can bust tanks and the CSM are ok against everything else. Don't forget that tank shocks are pretty good to break un-fearless units and with 3 rhinos you can tank shock the same unit more then once on the same turn to give you more chances at making it happen.

    Alternatively, you can run your CSM squads like this (a cheaper version of the dual special weapon units)

    7x marines with glory icon
    *1x special weapon
    *1x champ with fist & combi-special
    *rhino
    Spambot kill tally. . .337

    Thanks for the input guys. I will defiantly go the Lord rout. I like the sounds of that
    and just picked up a model for him. And 3 small fast units is starting to sound good also.
