OK, well iv worked out what sort of SM I want. I want a close shooting that also loves the cc, With the close shooting i mean flamers etc (because there so cool lol).
So i checked out the "Which chapter thread" and i couldnt really find a chapter that excels at this.
Or do i just go standard marines and get alotta those units?
Salamanders, my personal favorite, would probably fit. Vulkan (The salamander HQ)makes all your flamer and melta type guns twin linked, so they're twice as deadly.
For example; If you combat squad a 10 man Tac squad you can get one group with a flamer and one with a missle launcher for no extra cost. Then you put the group with the flamer in a razorback, which you can put a heavy flamer on, and have Vulkan join them, because he has a heavy flamer. If they happen to survive your flamers, you can charge in with them because Vulkan does pretty well in CC with his Relic blade and nice save. And if you give the sergeant a power weapon/fist its even better.
I've killed entire MEQ squads in one round with this, and crippled GEQ ones. Salamanders might not be the BEST in CC, not by a longshot, but they can get the job done and they're fantastic with flamers.
Zygh, i'm a bit slow when it comes to 40k abbreviations, so what is 'GEQ'? Gechanised?
