Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi guys.. i was wondering if it's possible to make a pure infantry list.. the only tanks i have or want to use are LRC, LR , and Speeders / Dreads when i get too many points.
The list should be 1000 points .. as i'm doing 1 list of each army i like, to make a HUGE dioram showing a battle between 4 armies, and then select the one i like to play =) (i'm more into painting and modeling than playing for now, as i lack too many players here)
Atm i got DH, Necrons and now i want Trait Marines or Vanilla ones =) .. but pure infantry..
Besides the actual "showcase" i want the list to be playable, so i was thinking about.. HQ (chaplain) , 2x squads of 5x Troops, 3x squads of Devastators using 4x plasma, and 8x HB .. i think that would give me enough support.. and about 35 models ..
And the other question.. i have 20 termies painted like DA, that were meant to form a deathwing army.. but i could use some of those if i decide to use the marines as my playing army.. and i want to know if i can use them painted differently than the rest of the army, or i need to paint them again?
I'm not sure what you're asking.
Of course an all infantry list is possible. That's pretty obvious from the codex.
If you want a competitive, 1000pt, all-infantry list, then you can ask for inputs.
But if you want to max-out with 12 plasma cannons in devastator squads and talk about squeezing terminators into 1000 points, I think that's kind of rediculous, even for a diorama. But that's up to you, man....
The Devs alone will run you close to 650 pts. Termi-Capt with Termi command squad is 265 minimum; Capt with standard terminator squad is 262 minimum. Troops minimum is 130. It's not all going to fit...and that's without any Heavy Bolters or a Chappy as your HQ.
Wanna try again?
EDIT: Ah, I misread your post--two of the devestator squads were supposed to have HB's. Well, that would leave some points for troops... but you need some Lascannons or Missile launchers if you aren't using vehicles. And what about an assault squad for your FA slot?
the termies are in case i decide to go over 2000 pts.. for now i'll limit myself to 1000 ^^
and i juz wanted to know if anyone tried a full infantry list, and if it worked well ^^
I run an all-infantry devastator list. Everything infiltrates and I have 24 missile launchers and 4 plasma cannons. if you like devastator squads then honour your wargear is the way to go.
But that list is 1850 pts. For 1000 pts you can probably get something like 3 dev squads, some tactical squads, and a command squad (which, BTW, can take 2 heavy weapons).
All infantry armies get played, and well, all the time. You just want to have lots of shooting, and then a small combat contingency.
In your surgestions, I would not do all HB and PC. Not enough armor punching there. Change out one of the HB squads for all missle launchers. They are very versitle, frag vs troops, or krak vs IC and vehicles. Don't think you even need tank hunters for only 1000 pt games, not likely to be so much heavy armor out there, what you have can't contend with it.
Do two squads of troops marines, one for combat one for shooting. Put the chapi in the combat squad.
My Black Templars are all infantry. All day, every day. Hehe. Your list sounds like DA to me. Lots of plasma and dev squads. DA love dev squads.
my shadow hunters army si an all infantry infiltrating army.
nothing with armourvalues.
as i did, you can compensate for the missing transports by using infiltrate and it islso handy to deploy your devies as last.. trust me.
so all infantry lists are always possible and with the traits you can shape them a bit in your own way. be careful with traits, they suck up points fast :yes:
