does buying as many space marines as you can work, or is the best tactic to take squads that have been fully equiped. I would have thought that the horde (to a certain extent) with a few squad upgrades would work. No tanks, just men.
Is it any good?
Marine heavy SM armies are great. However I always give them some gubbins for example. 10 marines against a Carnifex=dead. 8 Marines inc veteran sgt with powerfist against a carnifex=ok.
A half company of 3 tac squads, I assault and 1 devastator would be a good army.
Plus lascannon, lots of lascannon.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
i thaugh of an idea, 6 10man squads with one lascannon each a rhino for each squad a vet srg pf to. first and/or second turn you will probobly destroy any tanks avalible after that assault anything that might be left.
And then you discover that you're facing off against my ork horde.Originally Posted by Astroth

or a nid army... ad a predetor destructor then. there should be points. and those lascannons should make it rather easy on those TMC
Get 3 dev squads, one with lascannons and the other two with HBs. Fill out the rest of the list with 10 man tac squads with lascannons, vet with fist, and some rhinos and you should be fine. Just try to avoid cc armies they can be a pain with these types of lists.
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
Horde SM armies are very good except against orks and some nid armies (as stated). I would use them depending on your opponent. If your fighting a super fast DE army and you don't get the 1st turn that's pretty much game over. But on the most part they are very effective.
Against Horde armies you really need to take advantage of vechiles such as WHIRLWINDS!They work wonders against nids and orks.There also cheap so you can even take 2 and unleash alot of mayhem.But SM horde armies in general i dont know ive never tried.
Hordes of marines are great, I do it all the time with my chaos, but you do need something to back it up like a whirlwind or two and maybe a dreadnought for good measure.
