We are starting a new story campaign and or first battle is 500 points? I play dark angels and would like to know what units i should have ?
probably a few tac marines and an HQ
are you playing combat patrol?
a few more specifics would help
Take life seriously, its lethal.
Use 5-6 man squads.
2 or 3 tactical squads, an assault squad, and some scouts will do well. Actually, the new battleforce contents make a very nice 500pt list (minus the rhino, I think).
My favorite 500 pt combo is 2 5-man Tac squads with plasma gun, 1 5-man Dev squad with 2 missile launchers, 5 scouts (no snipers or shotguns), and a 5-man assault squad with plasma pistol and veteran sgt w/ power fist. That's 495 pts.
You can use the extra points for a heavy bolter for the scouts, or upgrade the Assault marines with a plasma pistol or give the sgt "Stubborn" since you play DA.
Of course, if the devs are overkill, you could drop a ML and make it a tac squad instead, and use those points for other upgrades.
For Dark Angels 500pts, here's my suggestion:
Chaplain + BP
Tactical Squad 5 men with LasCannon and Plama Gun
Scout Squad 5 men bp + ccw. Sargeant with PF
Dreadnaught AC + CCW
LST 80 tps
There are spare points available for upgrade the HQ or increase the size of the squads. If you feel you like more troops, pick a Captain instead of Chaplain for more spare points.
The idea is to do what Dark Angels do best: shoot! The scouts are there to offer protection to whatever come close to your tactical, but can also infiltrate. The HQ can either join the scouts or run alone.
I would say have a Captain or a Master as the HQ. Have about 2 tac squads of 6 with a PC and a PG. Have 2 Devestator squads of 6 with 4 MLs. Im not too sure how many points that would come up to because I am typeing this at school :shifty: . But if you have any spair points try and put in a few Ravenwing Landspeeders with the ass. cannon. Or try and put in more squads.
