    im new...ugghh

    hey... so i just started space marines a little while ago. I first started Tyranids, then whent to Necrons, so now im here. I currently have 2x tactical 10 man squads, 1 venerable dreadnought, 5 assualt rines, 1 dreadnought, 1 predator, 1 commander, 1 librarian, 1 chaplain, 5 scouts, 1 rhino, 1 techmarine and servitors, 1 landspeeder Im really not sure where to go with this. I really like the idea of assualt terminators, but i realised that normal termies have powerfists and storm bolters, so they are probably more effective...i'm also thinking about getting attack bikes with meltas. any suggestions?

    Yeah give me all your stuff. You started just a while ago and it appears you already have tons more stuff than I have!!! That list list of models is enough for an army anyways. You could fill anywhere from 1000-1500pts with those, and once you get strategy down you could do some damage with that list.

    thanks, but it feels so un speceified, which i guess is not a bad thing for starting out. I also decided to not go with a specific chapter and just make my own.

    Seems as though you love your Hq's and will be ready for any army you verse because you have each one. But if you made a list out of this it probably wouldn't be doing that good because it is not rounded focused on Hq. But you need to find out what type of army you want to play shooty or assaulty. I myself go with assaulty because of my tactics when I am close to the enemey compared to when I am away from them. But for you like I said you have to decide then start buying the stuff to reach your goal for what you want.

    You have quite the array of models, easily enough for 1000 or so points.

    HQ
    Chaplain/Master/Librarian-anything you want, up to 105 points
    Elites
    Ven Dready-Assault Cannon, extra armor, smoke launchers
    Troops
    9 marines-frags, meltagun, heavy bolter, Vet-powerfist
    Rhino-extra armor, smoke launchers
    10 marines-missile launcher, plasma gun, Vet-powerfist
    Scouts-5, 4 snipers, heavy bolter
    Fast Attack
    Land Speeder Tornado-HB, AC
    Heavy Support
    Predator Annihilator-HB sponsons, extra armor

    That would be 1000 points and a fairly well-rounded list. Your IC will ride with the Rhino Squad while your other Tac Squad and Scouts provide covering fire. Dread, Speeder, and Pred advance to support as necessary. Of course, this is one of many possibilities, so feel free to come up with something of your own.

    To expand to the 1500 mark, I reccomend at least 2 more Tactical Squads to fill out your Troops, and then whatever else you want to take.

    I would get five more assault marines and scouts, maybe another tactcial squad or two, a terminator squad, maybe even a devastator squad depending on how much fire power you have, and another land speeder.

    Before you buy: What type of army do you want?

    Shooty, assaulty, balanced.

    Secondly, do you want a theme? Mechanized, bikes, infantry.

    Essentially, you pick one from each category. Then design a list from these parameters.

    Heres a sample army which you might find useful to get you started, this army can work as a core force for a balanced, infantry - which i recommend for beginners.


    HQ
    Chaplain, Reclusiarch, terminator armor, jump pack, bolt pistols, frags, 122 points.

    ELITES
    Dreadnought, Assault Cannon, Dreadnought weapon, extra armor, 110 points.

    TROOPS
    Tactical Squad, 5 marines, 1 lascannon, 90 points.
    Tactical Squad, 5 marines, 1 lascannon, 90 points.
    Tactical Squad, 6 marines, 1 plasma cannon, 1 plasma gun, 120 points.


    FAST ATTACK
    Assault squad, 10 marines, 2 plasma pistols, 1 veteran sergeant with powerfist, 260 points.
    Landspeeder tornado, assault cannon, heavy bolter, 80 points.

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    Devastators, 8 marines, 4 Missile Launchers, 200 points.

    Total: 992

    Obviously, you cant make this army with what you have today. It might not be what you want. But it is a good core force, that will keep you in the game, even if your opponent is much better then you.

    Plus this army expands well to 1500, and even to 2000.

    Good Luck, your next step is to make an army list, then organize your squads to fit that army list, and finally buy things you don't have, but want for the army list.

    Some players find getting Missile launchers difficult, remember with only a minor conversion you can use the ones off the vehicle sprue.

    Peace

    err i dont know what an IC is # 1....and i was thinking about getting like maybe lots of fast moving to give flanking harrasment firepower while a main column of troopers or transports advanced with troopers....sound good? like maybe a squad of attack bikes iwth a squad of land speeders? and some assualt marines? with an advance column of like 3 rhinos with 2 tactical squads, and a commander with company, and maybe two predators with the main column?

    IC is an Independent Character.
    Your tactics sound pretty good. But this will matter also on what army you are versing.

    So the next step is to make an army list.
