PLZ can you help me im starting a space marine army and i wanted know which was the best in range and y?
A loyal marine is best, why? because the imperium is neat. Couple of good army to check out are blood angels, and space wolves, who dominate CC. Blood angles are probly the easest army, with a huge bang for the buck. However, you must min max with them. Triats marines are also quiet good.
As for fluff, dark angles.
I'm not sure what you mean by this: "wanted know which was the best in range and y?". Anyways, if I were you, I'd head down to your nearest GW store and look at codex Space Marines. After you have looked at that for a while, check out the supplement codices (Spce Wolves, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Black Templar). After that, you can decide if you wanna go with one of the Big Five (above ^ or Ultramarines) or if you want to make a chapter all of your own.
Also, one more bit of advice: since you are a junior member, I thought I would mention this. You should get into the habit early of giving out rep. Rep stands for "reputation". You give this out by clicking the little yellow star under the stats of the person you are giving rep to. You give out rep to people who are helpful (me), nice (me), and just plain cool (me again). :tongue:
Anyways, I wish you luck starting your marine army and don't listen to any of the people out there that critices your army choice just because you play a certain army *cough* Space Marines *cough*.
Shields of the Emperor SMs (in the making)
Nurgle IG AC/Grenadiers
Remember, give people rep if they help you.
Which type is best?
The dead type. :tongue:
But no, really; there is no true "best" as the game relies a lot on designing an army list; and army lists can be however the maker wants them. If you're asking what's the "best" in shooting; obviously, a list designed around a shooting army. Get shooting units, like Devestators. I'm pretty sure Dark Angels are a pretty good shooting Space Marines army.
And please; the mods look down on "net speak," which is when you use things such as "PLZ" for please and "y" for why.. I would really recommend you spelling the words out and checking your grammar. It's a forum; nobody judges you on how fast you can type/post, so make sure that each post is readable.
Yes, because DA never fall back from shooting.Originally Posted by Lost Nemesis
If you like shootign armies, I suggest 8 man Devastator squads with 4 missile launchers, which runs in at a very nice 200 pts. The Dark Angels also have standards that let you do things like shoot in your opponents assault phase.
Of course, it's still smart to have at least one assault unit. I suggest a 10 man assault squad with a powerfisted sergeant and an attached chaplain. This is a very effective squad that gives you a great fast attack and HQ choice.
I suggest reading some of the SM tacticas on the top of the SM page.
#1) get a Space Marine Codex(as was suggested), and read through all the units and rules
#2) After you buy the Codex, make sure you get 2troops, and 1 HQ, because these are required for your army
#3) After you have bought the esentials, have fun building your army
