Hi, havent played 40k in a long time, and havent had a chance to look at the new SM codex. but I would like to know if an army like this would be somthin that could be done: 4 speeders transporting scouts
2/3 fotslogging scout units
1/2 scout bike squads
some heavy suport.
the importen thing is really not if its good, but if its a legal composition of units.
I have some fluff that would fit a list, so would like to know if it could be done?
looks perfectly legal to me. it'd be a good list for going up against armies with a lot of light infantry and not much on tanks. Scouts are cheap as heck for marines. with modest upgrades they're less than the base cost of a tactical squad and they have some good weapons choices i'd certainly take some heavy hitting heavy support choices to go with it, or possibly some standard speeders with meltas to give it a bit more AT punch but aside from that it looks pretty good.
nice and inventive too!
Doesnt seem like a good choice to me. Considering the stats of them. And the fact they about about the same points, with cloaks, as a tact squad. I guess they are 30 cheaper with out them. But hitting on a 4+ seems rough for 30 points.
Some adjustments can be made to make it legal, though:
- You need an HQ choice
- The maximum amount of land speeders storm you can take is 3
- you can have up 6 troop choices, but the speeders are not dedicated.
- If you max the amount of speeders, you won't be able to field the scout bikes, since you have only three slots on fast attack.
All of the above is explained in details on the codex.
You could always take the Apocalypse rules and use the scout Company rules in there! Perfectly legal... and viable and playable!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
