right im kind of stuck on what to get next for my ultramarine army:cry:
3x 10 man tactacil squad
3x attack bikes
1x 5 man assault squad
1x force commander
1x 5 man veteran squad
check my forum http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spa...&action=logout its cool
if you yoyo check this forum
come on the space marines
Why not a Chaplain for assault squad. Also another 5 man assault squad.
Land speeders... I love mine and the speed of them adds a great amount of tactical flexibility.
Or you can go for broke, and get the greatest armored vehicle in the imperium.. The Land Raider. always a fire magnet, but puts out great firepower and will occupy your enemies firepower for a while.
Terminators are an option but be warned, its a bit of a learning curve to play them properly.
Definately more assault marines. A chaplain to lead them would be a good idea too.
LST's are always good, cant go wrong with them.
A termie squad wouldnt hurt. Neither would a lib to go with them.
Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.
Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
Gotta second the Landspeeder idea. Especially a Tornado with the assault cannon. Mmmmm...
I also think another 5 assault marines with a jump pack chaplain would do wonders for your force. Have fun!
Beware the Agapanthers!
Codex Astartes: More a guideline than a rule...
If you want a good rounded army, Terminators with Assault Cannons and more tactical marines are never a bad option. If you really feel like blowing some cash you could always spring for a FW Drop pod!
Personally I love Dreadnoughts and the more the merrier! Bring on the mechanized death dealers!
Bolter Blasting Blizzard = Victory
If I was in your position, here would be my top ten wish list, by priority:
1. Devastator Squad
4. Land Speeders
5. 5 more assault marines to complement the existing 5
7. Ultramarine Honor Guards
8. Chief Liberian Tigurius
9. Land Raider Crusader
10. More tactical marines to form a command squad
11. Sergeant Namaan & Sniper Scouts
But hey, that's just me. Luck with your army!
I agree with Chapel:
You got a pretty well rounded army there. But you need some big guns. The predator alone can get popped. My Advice? Get two SM combat Squads (The 5 man Squads) and use their two Rocket Launchers and the two you already ahve to make a Missle Dev Squad. And use your old bits to maek the other 8 Marines into whatever other type amrine you need. But whatever you do DO NOT buy the Devestator box. You Get 4 Weapons that SUCK if you put them in the same squad. Theri Range/Damage/AP is all mixed up, and that's no good for you. When you take the two Missile marines from your Tac Squads, get 2 Plasma Cannons or LAscannons to add to the Tac Squads. Plasma Cannon are they bane of Power armored or Armor 3+ armies, and the dread 2+ save. Where as LAscannons are tank killers.
OH OH OH OH OH lol, Games WOrkshop would kill me for throwing this around but... DONT BUY THE SPACE MARINE TACTICAL SQUAD BOXED SET. It's a rip, except for the Missilie Launcher. Buy ONLY the Space Wolves Grey Hunter BOxed set. You get the stuff you need to make 10 Tactical Marines, and on top of that...
1 Power Sword
1 Power Axe
1 Power Fist
1 Plastc Melta Gun
5 Unique Armor fronts
5 Unique Armor Heads
Several BOlt Pistol Arms
1 PLasma pistol arm (Posed alot better than the assault plasma pistol arm)
6 Knives (in Sheath as wella s the SPrue Knives)
Chain Sword Arm
And a Unique Bolter
All for the same price, and all you lose is a few Purity seals and Detail pieces. The SW weapons are all plastic so the SW look can be shaved EASILY with an exacto knife. I did it for all my weapons till the new Assault Marine sprue came out. In fact if youc anf ind the Old boxed sets they are usnually cheaper than the new Tac Marine sets.
After you get the Devestators... I'd add some more Tac marines sine your Ultramarine, though Marneus Calgar is a Kick Ass HQ for you, as well as Tigerius. And a Chaplain is cheap $ Wise (Or can make your own as I did. Very Personalized), and does the work of any other 4 marines in CC>
