    N00B SM player. what to get next?

    hey... This is my first post, so i'll just give a background on my SM chapter.

    Advantages: Trust yo' BB
    No Mercy, No Respite

    Major Disadvantage: Eye to Eye
    Minor Disadvantage: Death Before Dishonour

    so far, i have collected the following units:

    ---10 Space Marines, one with a M. Launcher, one with a flamer, one with Bolt Pistol And Chainsword.
    ---Dreadnought.

    My parents told me they would get me two packs of anything as a gift, so I was wondering what you guys think i should get. I was torn between an Assault Squad, Scout Squad, or devastator squad, when I remembered... I need an HQ.(So far my friend and I have decided to ditch the force organization rule until we get more models.) By the way, the person i play against most plays tau, and my other friend is thinking about buying Necron.. (Damn nightbringer)

    I am looking to make a 500 to 750 point army with the units i get.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Yeah, they never said anything about a price, grab a megaforce, and a battleforce mk2. It's only gonna run em 250 dollars.

    on a more serious note, lets assume they meant around 100 dollars between the two boxes shall we? ask for the new battleforce box ($90) and a HQ of some sort (15?)

    Since you've got the 10 men & a Dread, who not just get a megaforce (Command squad, another tactical squad, & Razorback//Rhino) and a simple Commander Boxed set?
    This will leave you with 26 Marines; one of them a Captain or Master, a Dreadnaught, and a Razorback//Rhino.

    This way you get about 500-700pts like you're after, and you can have a legal list.
    If you don't want a force Commander, get the box set anyway as he has some good weapons... PM me if you want a Librarian or Chaplain & I'll help you out with that.
    Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!

    Assuming that you don't want to bend your parents over on a semantical (is that a word?) point, here's what I'd suggest-

    Another tactical squad and a Land Speeder Tornado.

    For one, you need another troops choice. Assault marines are FA. Scouts are troops, but you need to figure them out before you go buying a bunch of them. I've got about 20 and I rarely field them because of my chapter's traits.

    The LST is something you'll use for the rest of the time you play 40K in all levels of games. Until they nerf the assault cannon in 5th ed. that is.

    Buy the HQ yourself. A chaplain blister or librarian blister is like 10 or 12 bucks USD. If you can't come up with that out of your own pocket, you need to find another hobby.

    Of course, all this is assuming that you alredy own Codex: Space Marines and the 4th ed. rulebook. If you don't have those, that's what you need to have them get you.
    We all carry on,
    When our brothers in arms are gone.
    So raise your glass high
    For tomorrow we die,
    And return from the ashes you call.

    Get the battle force MK2 and a chaplain, commander or librarian boxed set/blister that would give you 25 tactical marines, 5 scouts with sniper rifels, a rhino, and a five man assault squad a HQ and a dreadnaught. If you get some extra pieces from BW bits you can make it a razorback and or a predator.

    If you read my post correctly I did not say megaforce which is like $160 I said the battleforce(MK2) which will be 90 and I guess with the spare parts you could build a commander with powerweapon, bolt pistol, and combat shield. So you could just ask for that as it wouldn't be much more and the deal is amazing.

    Well if you read my post correctly if there is absaloutley no limit on price he should get the mega force. And for the next sentence i am sure there is a limit. They both make scense.

    All this tit and tat is rediculous. Stick to the topic, guys.

    My recommendation is to get another Tac squad and an assault squad. You can use both in your traits army, and they compliment what you have quite nicely. A Land speeder is not a bad idea, but it can wait.

    Use the bits from the assault squad sprue to make a Commander for your army. If you stick to combat patrol rules, then a vet sgt is sufficient. Check out the Army Lists section and do a search for "combat patrol." You'll get some good ideas.

    The new battleforce is also looking mighty nice, if you can talk your parents into the 90 bucks plus tax...that rhino can be converted to a pred by ordering a few sprues from GW mail order...
