My current list is now resting at approximately 700 points, I'm looking to expand it to 1000.
My opponents are, if relevant, Orks, Imperial Guard and/or Chaos Marines.
2 Tactical squads; 10 + 7 man
1 Assault squad; 5 man strong.
I really like the Assault marines, but I'm thinking that maybe I should get some more Tacs?
Or some tanks, like my brother says?
Any advice? I know you have.
Hm well, that totally depends on your playstyle. But as you already have 2 tacticals and 1 rhino I would get:
- 1 Razorback (you can model it as a rhino plus get that turret)
- At least one heavy weapon. Maybe a Vindicator fits into that army, driving with the rhinos.
I think the rest is completely open for everything.
I'd grab one of those little 3/4 packs of tactical marines to fill out your one squad.
If you like assault marines, grab another unit. I'd look into a second Rhino, make your army very mobile that way. Some extra heavy guns wouldn't hurt though, and if you want to use rhinos and have a mobile army, a predator or vindicator wouldn't be misplaced. On the other hand, Sternguard veterans or terminators are a solid addition to almost any space marine force.
you can get a razorback with 5 tactical marines for £25
like others have said model this so it can be used as either rhino or razorback
use 3 of the marines 2 bring you squads 2 10 and 10 and you have 2 spare bodies which always come in useful
blood angels 5000 pts
imperial guard 500 pts
orks 1000 pts
I'd grab another Rhino and fill out that Tactical Squad. Get them both Meltaguns if you haven't and a PF. That should be good for a bit.

Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
Three Tactical Marines should be cheap enoough on eBay. Then pad the Assault Squad out to ten men. And then you can buy some fun stuff!
Some heavy fire power would help make your army a bit more versatile. A Predator or a Vindicator would do well - and take some heat away from your Rhino too.
You've definitely got the core of a solid army.
Thanks a lot for all the tips!
You really h elped me make up my mind. I'll be getting my broken Tactical up to ten, get an extra Rhino and fill up my Assault squad.
If you regularly face off against chaos marines, it would be well worth investing in a squad of sternguards and either a razorback or drop pod to transport them. With their special ammunition options, they're worth their weight in gold against that pesky power armour
