Welcome to Librarium Online!
Are mechanized marines worth it for larger scale battles? I have only used mechanized marines for 1500 pt battles so far, and it has worked for me (razorbacks w/ 5 man squads 1 equipped with multi melta, 1 equipped w/ melta gun) I play BA so I can give my veterans and honour guard jump packs to move them fast.. I've only used them on IG so far, but not sure if i should scrap them while playing tau or another shooty army...
*(note that BA had the honour guard long before ultramarines)
ahhh no the honor guard is basically a command squad.
there blood angels so you dont neet to mechenise them....hello just run at them on foot and distract te enemy with faster units like assault marines and bikes and land speeders.
so against tau get nothing but cc units...and scouts
scouts work well against tau in a blood angel army becuase they are cheap and can do some damage if place right on the board. because they have the abilit to move through cover you have to move past the tau to a flank and clapse there flanks.
i would also recommend bikes they are fast moving marines and when you give one of them a power sword fire worriers cant do anything at all.
and liughtning claws are good too.
P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
