I posted this in the army lists forum, but no one seemed interested to reply. Here it goes again . . .
I am an old 2nd Edition player trying to get back into 40k. My old 2nd edition 2000 pt. Ultramarine force can only make up about 1500 pts. at max, so I thought I'd post what I have for some comments from all of you. This is based on the 3rd edition SM Codex (even though I realize that some point values might change with the 4th ed. codex):
Commander +Bolter, Power Fist, Auspex, Teleport Homer or Melta Bombs (Teleport homer if more than 500 pts. taken) = 79
Tactical Squad (10) + Flamer (Sergeant with BP/CCW) (Squad moves forward to engage the enemy usually, Commander is with this squad usually) = 156
Tactical Squad (5) + Heavy Bolter (shooty, anti-infantry squad) = 80
Devestator Squad (5) + 2 Missile Launchers, Plasma Cannon, Las Cannon (shooty, anti-tank/big guys squad) = 185
1000 pts. add the following:
Whirlwind (sit back and shoot) = 75
Dreadnought + Assault Cannon, Extra Armour (shooty/close combat) = 110
Terminator Assault Squad (5) + 2 Lightning Claws, 1 Thunder Hammer, 1 Chainfist (Close Combat) = 215
Chaplain + Terminator Armor, Storm Bolter (usually with Terminator Assault Squad) = 100
1500 pts. add the following:
Land Speeder + Multi Melta, Heavy Flamer (flank attacker, anti infantry/tank) = 90
Terminator Squad (5) + 1 Assault Cannon, 1 Heavy Flamer, 1 Chainfist (shooty, anti-infantry) = 245
Razorback + Extra Armour (Heavy Bolters) (shooty anti-infantry, or transport command squad/commander) = 75
Command Squad (5) (tech, apothecary, std. bearer, sergeant, marine) Bolters, no wargear (may be with the chaplain or commader, separate from other squads; shooty or protect/follow commander/chaplain into close combat) = 90
The last two 500 pt. groupings are interchangable, as are the Razorback and Whirlwind point-wise. These are all the models I own except for Chief Librarian Tigurius (my Commander is a Marneus Calgar model). I don't plan on buying anymore (plan on getting into Tyranids next), so I'd like to know what you guys think of this list? Thanks!
