I was messing around the other night with my trusty CSM codex trying to find the perfect balance of power, and points.
I was interested in what the rest of you use.
Since I play Night Lords here's my super-efficient squad set-up:
The optimal Night Lords squad:
5 Choas Space Marines w/ Bolt Pistol and CCW
1 Choas Space Marine w/ 1 Heavy Bolter
1 Choas Space Marine w/ 1 Meltagun
1 Aspiring Champion w/ Bolt Pistol & Power Fist.
Skills: Infiltrate, Stealth Adept, Move Through Cover
Cost: 199 Points
Those of you who worship a specific god or use a special legion (Iron Warrios etc.)post your most effective squad combos.
Rules: Troops choices only.
Limit 200 points max.
asp. champ powerfist.
and if pistols don't loose me my +1 attack for charging some lovely plasma death!
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
My IW are run in 115 point, 6 man modules for shootyness, and minimum 200 pts modules for CC.
6 Man, Las/Plas
9 Man, AC included w/ PF/D. Mutation, and two meltaguns or PW/D. Str and two flamers, and Rhino.
i play black legion and i got:
cc squad of 12 berzerkers inc. asp champ (elites)
squad of red corsairs w/ bolt pistols and ccwpn's (10 troops w/ asp champ)
squad of CSM w/ bolters, 1 heavy bolter and 1 plasma gun (8 troops inc asp champ)
1 Chaos lord and 1 chaos lord sorceror
thats just core force. thats my combo (sorry for not posting in army lists )
<a href='http://kevan.org/brain.cgi?chaosbringer' target='_blank'>40k-forum.tk go there, its the best</a>
i've heard alchohol makes you stupid!
No i'm . . . doesn't
glad to see another NL player join the fold (i was a tau player too).
if you want a perfect squad that can effectively do everything itself (cheap), then I would take:
5 Chaos Space Marines w/. boltguns
1 Chaos Space Marine w/. lascannon
1 Chaos Space Marine w/. plasma gun
1 Champ w/ Bolt Pistol & Power Fist, and daemonic visage.
All with MoCU and stealth adept.
TOTAL = 178pts
However, a cheap, decent marine squad when working in coordination with the rest of your army for me would be 6 marines, lascannon, plasma gun, stealth adept, MoCU. These are really great at taking hard stuff like tanks and terminators out and they also act as a bait to lure my opponent into one of my traps.
Apathy is the greatest enemy of all.
Well Ive been thinking about building an army around this squad
11 space marines with sonics blasters and mark of slaanesh
1 space marine with blast master and mark of slaanesh
this comes to a whopping 293 pts but think of all the dakka. that can be up to 33 shots of bolter equivalent fire up to 24" and a blast master for a lil tank hunting.
And people say EC is a CC army *laughs*
