Posted this in the wrong forum a moment ago (sorry about that Chaosbrynn), so here's the second try:
There is a tournament comming up in the next month and I would like some advice in preparing a list for it.
I am strongly considering drop podding my entire Salamanders list but I am concerned that opponents might be offended by such a tactic because I have heard 'podded marine armies can be vicious against just about anything but a hardened CC opponent. Any advice?
My list would probably have a librarian with cmd squad with FotD and FotA, and the rest in tac squads with flamer/melta gun. I have a dread I could drop also, or terminators, but I expect that due to the unpredictable nature of droppod armies, I will want to have as many owunds in my list as possible.
Will opponents cry "cheese" against something like this? I am sure that nids/orks certainly won't be complaining if I draw any of them, and the weapons choices are certainly in theme with the Salamanders.
It sounds fair to me. If anyone cries "cheese" just tell tell them that your list is perfectly legal. If they make a big deal about it bring in the tournament supervisor.
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!

Good going mate, Salamanders rock!!!! Why aren't they feathered more often though :huh: ? I don't understand it, there the best Chapter of them all!!! Much better the Ultramarines anyway!!!!! Keep up the good fight!!! For The Emperor!!!!
My list at this point is 5 tac squads (melta & flamer in each) 3 at 10 models, 2 at 9, and a librarian with command squad with bp/ccw (also 10 strong). The librarian has FotD and a bolt pistol (and the force weapon of course), and all the pods are the basic configs (storm bolter).
Nearly 60 marines should be able to absorb alot of punishment, but if they arrive piecemeal, samurai_socks is right, they would be easy to rip up. Its a chance I am willing to take, I went all mechanized in their last tournament, so this should be a nice change of pace.
A couple of dreads would be awesome in a dropped army, in theory. I've only ever played one drop-pod battle, and I was on the receiving end. They're surprisingly easy to counter as long as your opponent gets unlucky with the rolls.
Think about one tactical squad against an entire list. If your dice rolls get screwed you could get wiped out squad by squad, but if that's a risk you're willing to take...just remember, if you do roll well, you'll have sixty marines right next to him and a melee Librarian. It'd be flamer heaven.
The terminators could theoretically be useful, since there's little chance of them getting shot up if they don't scatter too far and get into melee quickly. They should be able to hold out on their own as long as the opponent doesn't have power weapons. I've had only little experience with drop pod armies but I can say this; they are risky business. Looks good on paper, not so much in practice.
