    Sup?
    Alright, so.. this is a dual question, really. First off, I need to know what kind of army would be in the 1000-2000 pt range, and Secondly, although the below is about HALF of what remains to be built/painted/detailed, its what I have so far, and I wanna know whether its a good army, or what I should do to strengthen it. My intentions are to get 2 Baal predators and a landraider, but as of now, this is what I've got.

    10x Marines with boltguns and misc melee
    3x multi-melta
    2x rocket launchers
    2x flamerthrowers
    1x plasma gun
    1x Marine captain w/ heavy bolter
    1x marine with dual bolt-pistols
    1x bike with twin-linked bolters

    Any comments/suggestions are appreciated. Yes, even if you MUST be rude in making them. Although I remind readers that Ive been playing for under 2 months, and Ive only had 2 games. BOTH of which were with the guy who started at the same time with me (we were clueless as to the rules, so all weapons basically had a 4,5,6 hit roll, and a 4,5,6 save/cover roll).

    -ota

    O.k first thing is to get some more basic marines as you can only have 1 heavy (Multi-meltas and bazookas) and 1 special (flamer + plas gun) My suggestion would be to get another box of ten and use 5 as devastators (can have up to 4 heavy) and use the rest as foot troops. Get some more bikes as you need a minimum of 3 but 4 is okay. Then get a H.Q and you should be set. I dont know much about the blood angels but I hope this has helped.

    You are wrong, the first thing is to post in the Right board, unfortunatley I dont mod this forum, but this belongs in one of the ones I do -

    40K-Space Marines
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    hello and welcome, so you want to use Baal Preds, but you play ultramarines? I dont think you can do that. the Baal is for BA only, I think. But dont mind me ^_^
    I tend to prattle on and on and on and on and on and on and on and zzzzzzzzzz
    Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.

    This isn't really a list of any kind, more like a "what can I do with these models?" It definitely doesn't go in the introductions section. It also doesn't fit the requirements for posting in the list forum, so I'll put it in the marine section where it should get more attention. -moved-

    Blood Angel Captain is correct. If you want to field Baal Predators you must play Blood Angels. (until/unless the new SM codex changes the rules)

    Otahak if you want more of an evaluation on an actual list, sit down with the appropriate codex and try to make one up. Then, following the posting rules, list it in the Army List forum. Other members will help you with mistakes and provide a variety of suggestions for possibilities with the list.

    run into to many tanks

    1 predator annihilator + (X side sponsons lascannons) + X (dozer blades) +X (extra armour)
    Total: 145 (heavy support)

    these are just guide lines

    For starts DO NOT do this. You may not post the individual point values for all the upgrades or equipment on your list. You can post the unit total, but that's it.

    Squeaks, I removed the points listed on your list.

    You may follow Squeaks list format now that it has been corrected.

    dude. no worries. Its totally kewl. I mean.. ive only been playing for maybe a month now.. and ive only actually had 2 games, both of which with my mate who started at the same time as me, so.. Like I said. Any and ALL comments are greatly appreciated. I just needed to know what to do with my men, since.. y'know.. Im too poor for a codex and cant find any other players to consult in real life.
