    What Can I do with this?

    Hey guys, I just got an awesome deal on some space marines and jumped at the chance.
    I just need to know what would be a good way to configure what I bought, and what I should get next.

    Okay, for $25 I got:
    1 landraider with/lascannons, smoke, missile launcher
    1 dread w/missile and tl lascannon
    1 speeder with/heavy bolter
    15 tactical marines w/2 missile launchers
    1 maybe force commander type thing
    1 devastator squad w/heavy bolter, plasma cannon, 2 lascannons
    3 terminators
    1 chaplain

    I was thinking about going black templars, or maybe just make my own. I would like to stay away from BA as my brother has them already.

    Any comments are appreciated.

    Erm...hmm. If you wanted to play effective Black Templars you'd still need more models. Neophytes, for one, and CC Tactical Marines (Initiates). The Godhammer Land Raider doesn't really work (fluffily and tactically) for BT, and neither do devastator squads (I don't think they can even take them.) The land speeder is fine, but one may consider ordering an assault cannon bit to make it a Tornado.

    You got all that for $25 bucks? Nice frickin' deal. I'd give my sisters liver to have those models. Not my liver, I need that to cope with my regular doses of medicinal gin.

    3 terminators aren't really useful (not a full squad.) And for general-purpose situations, the AC dread is more reliable and versatile; the LC/ML one is only really a good choice if you have alternatives or are in dire need of anti-tank.

    What exactly is a "maybe force commander type thing"? What equipment does it have? Do you have any other pieces you can apply to re-fit it if its equipment is unsatisfactory?

    Maybe a shooty traited list? Note: the changes happening to DA and BA are happening across the board, so that means Combat Squads and armoury restrictions, so be careful what you do buy. This is a really unpredictable time for Space Marines. For some reason. I don't even know why Games Workshop is focussing on Space Marines, they should be past Orks and onto Dark Eldar by now. Hell, we should be seeing a new Necron codex by now, and they don't even need it.

    Well, you could put it on a box, and then mail it to me. I think that would be the best thing. Yes do that right away.

    More seriously, id buy the codex next, then decide what army you want to play. Finally submit an army list for review.

    But personally, i like the first option better. :shifty:

    This is exactly right, and a very good point to keep in mind. BUT, as a DA player I must say that I think you go pick you up a DA codex and play them

    That aside, I would ultimatly wait for the BA codex to release then decide. Go spend about 3 or 4 hours at you hobby store and read through all the codexs and decide from there. You could pick up the Space Marine codex and play everything as you have them.....the only thing with that is you run into a problem like I did when I had to use the DA codex instead. You will be used to giving all these options to guys and major expandability and the with the DA or BA you will be more limited.

    I know nothing about BT honestly....sry.

    All in all you have a decent core of things. You really have to go heavy shooty! The Land Raider and Termies you prolly wont use much honestly. But the other stuff can be quite useful. Whatever you decide to do welcome to the space marine world, and dont get discuraged.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I do have the Codex, due to my brother's Blood Angels. Maybe I'll just go for a trait-ed force. I would like to put an assault cannon on the dread, but oh well. I forgot, I also got about 20 ork boyz in this deal. Sweeeet. I am going to get the other 2 termies very soon. Very nice.

    Okay, so my brother gave me his entire Blood Angels force because he doesn't want to play, so I have

    honor guard w/jetpacks
    furioso dread
    lascannon/missile dread
    16 or so terminators, assault cannon, librarian, missile, heavy flamer
    25 regular marines
    2 veteran sergeants
    6 scouts
    landspeeder w/heavy bolter
    landspeeder w/missile and heavy bolter
    Landraider
    Mephiston Lord of Death
    2 bikers
    2 devastator squads, 1 with 2 lascannons, plasma cannon, HB, the other with plama, missile, las, HB.
    And about 8 death company members.
    and a predator (on the sprue in the box still)
    FOR $35!!!!!!

    What can I do with this? I was hoping to make a assaulty force of BA, with lots of jetpacks or rhinos. Rather, I think I'll go straight shooty with all my dev. squads, backed by a line of spacemarines, with deepstriking or walkon terminators. Sweet, I'll post a list.

    How do I get Jetpacks for my deathcompany? I would only really field a death company army if they had Jetpacks.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
