    Scouts in mass

    I have a an infantry heavy army of dark angels and I have for the last couple months buying lots of scouts.

    My number now #'s

    One chaplain with a 7 man command squad

    -6 man sniper scouts
    -6 man ccw scouts
    -6 ccw scouts
    -6 shotgun scouts
    -all with krak and frag grenades-

    and two 5 man tactical marine squads, and a newly assembled Land raider crusader for HQ

    so after all that my question is do you think I have spent too many points on mainly scouts or should I have gotten just normal marines.

    P.S.- any ideas on what to do next?

    THANKS

    If you want a lot of Scouts that's up to you.
    I've planned (but never played) an army with 6 full scout squads maxed out on Sniper Rifles. I forgot what the rest of the army was. Needless to say that was a very shooty army

    I kinda want to play that army now.

    @ The doctor

    you can add a dreadnought and a chaplain to that list if you play a 1500 points battle. it´s really fun to see those wraithlords falling down to sniper fire. the dread is then fitted for anti-tank hunting(lascannon and missile launcher).
    Don´t mess with the dicegod

    Firstly, shotguns are a waste of time, bolt pistols and close combat weapons or even just bolters are superior.

    Secondly, you would be better off with a mix of Tactical and Scout Squads with a greater emphasis on the Tacticals. The 3+ armour save is very important as you will face more AP4 weapons than AP3.

    Yeah an all scout army doesnt work out.It needs to have other units in it other than just pure scouts.And yes shotgun scouts are pretty weak and useless against practically anything,rather go for ccw and bp scouts or sniper scouts.
    Cheers,
