Hey! I'm new. I just got into 40K at the local hobby center and I need some help with my army. My goal is 1500 pts. So far I have the Space Marines Battleforce Box Set including 1 rhino, 1 tact. squad(i have bolters and missile launcher), 3 bikes, and a 5 man assault squad. I know that is only about 600 pts. The prob. is that I have to use my own money. And since im only 14 that is a little hard to come by. I need to buy the right stuff that will work in almost every battle until i can get a job to have a huge variety of choices. So anyway I need some help on what to buy. I also want to know which is the better buy for a tank with good armor and well balanced guns. A land raider, a crusader, or some type of Predator. I'm gonna get an EC but i dont know what my HQ should be for a 1500 pt army. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Over and Out.
Add a Predator Annihilator, then just troops and assault m'friend. Troops can never ever be a bad thing, I'd buy the Blood Claw sets so you get the extra ccw sprues.. You might even want to add a Dread w/ TwinLinked LAscannon to help Annihilator take out armor while your friends charge. The more troops you field, the better off you are. For the HQ I'd get domething like a chaplain to fly along with the assault squad for flanking maneuvers and the like. That added Close Combat punch has hurt me a time or two.
I've been readin up on the Whirly and I want to know if that will be a good choice because i will be fightin a lot of eldar at my hobby center. So im thinkin of a couple more cc tact squads to go along with my long range squad(bolters and missile launcher). I think ive got enough fast attack. I just desperately need a tank. So a pred. annihalator. Please give me some feedback on the whirlwind.
If there're gonna be lotsa Eldar, take Heavy Bolter Sponsons on the Predator. Whirlwinds are great, not gonna lie, but you said you're on a budget. That'll be $30+tax for a 75pt model...And that's a smart choice for the army, but you could get a tac squad for the same price, and get 2-3times as many points out of it..
