I was looking to make a space marines list. I just got back and with the help from the predator loadout thread I finished building them. I have the following models and wanted to make 1k and 1.5k points for fun lists.
35 space marines, 3x with flamers, 3x with missile launchers
15 terminators (Just ordered 10x SS/TH conversion bits)
1 Libarian in standard armor
2x Predators W/Autocannon/Lazcannon Sponsons
3x Dreadnaughts with Multimelta arm
I do like Salamanders and I may end up getting bits to turn the missile Launchers in to Multimelta. Any help would be great. I may end up getting some bikes. Any help with what I currently have would be nice. Any think I should get just let me know!
going from your models, I would go for a vulkan list,
Tactical squads with flamers,
Terminators with TH/SS
Dreadnought with multimelta
if you have points/models throw in some sternguard and give them either combi flamers of combi meltas,
Basically go for a salamanders list, you like the chapter and you have vulkan,
just try to get as many flamers,meltas and thunder hammers in your list that you can.
But IMHO i would try to avoid a 10 man terminator squad in a 1k list, its 400pts for the unit so almost half your points
and they would struggle to kill enough in a game to make their points back, (they would have to single handedly kill half your opponnents army)
If He is For me, Who shall stand against me
would recommend the muli melta and melta guns for the tac squads if you can get them. also I think the whirlwind for long range support is a good option.
I agree about the termies. In a small army termies are not going to get their points back ( though I do love running 8 man squads with lightning claws in an LR Crusader :-D )
I always recommend bikes, give 2 of the bikes a Meltagun, and the sergeant a power powerfist, throw in an attack bike with multi melta and you have a good high speed tank hunter unit. Add Kor'Sarro Khan on Moondrakken as a secod HQ choice ( not in a 1k point army, because of his cost ) an you get a hard hitting tank hunter squad that has a good chance to get in, kill a tank and get out before the opponent can even respond.
I LOVE the bikes but I don't know if I should go a squad of 4 and 1 attack bike or maybe a squad of 3 attack bikes! or 2 squads!
