Hi all,im making a space marine chapter but would like to know what you think of it.heres my army list:
5xspace marines+missile launcher=85
6xscouts CCW+Bolt Pistl= 65
4xAssault marines+2 plasmapistols+vet serg+powerfist=150
1xLand Speeder Tornado HvyBolter+assltCannon=80
Its only 500pts but im a beginner so ill start there The name i want for them is Void Walkers<sorry if someone is using that name,im not sure what made me think it up :/>Would it be possible for them to deepstrike like legion of the damned?and can they hate deamons like slaansh<which they fight alot being around warps,or voids.>

You have pretty good movement for 500 pts.
If you just take 1 heavy weapon the the missile launcher is the one to take.
Have you considered taking any Trait Advantages / Disadvantages?
"The sword that takes life gives life."
If you like the deepstriking so much like the Legion of the damned (don't know that much about them, so deepstriking.. .i believe you on that one) why don't you make up your own chapter and play bij Legion of the damned rules?
As for "hating daemons" you could for fluff include a squad of grey knights or something. Perhaps even paint them in the same colours as the normal squads. Just keep in mind that each army uses their own rules and if grey knights cannot deep strike that's a rule that should be kept in mind when eventually fielding a Marine/Daemonhunter force with a single painting scheme. Also make sure your opponent is aware of it all.
That's all I can tell you now. But like I said before I'm not into Legion of the damned. Perhaps I should look into their rules to make a more solid statement about it.
It would all depend on the group you play with. The old rules for LotD are long out of date and traits suggestions have been made by GW so it wouldn't fly at tournaments but if your local group doesn't mind then there is no reason why you couldn't use their rules. A better option in my opinion would be to use a regular marine list (with or without traits) and Deep Strike with everything that can and Droppod the rest when Deep Strike is allowed and Droppod everything when Deep Strike isn't allowed.
Another option for simulating LotD is to use the Necron codex with marine miniatures. You are far more limited in weapons and wargear and will need a degree of creativity to justify some of the items but it can be done. Necron stats are basically marines and gauss blasters are bolters with rending. Just a thought.
What are you using for a chapter symbol?
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.
Not all the Emperors Children turned coat. We will redeem our name.
thanks for the advise guys,no i havent really thought of a symbol,mabye a portal or somthing?,feel free to post any ideas on one.:yes:If i were to use the necron rules for SM would i have to convert them?
Also ive changed my hq to a Captain with power weapon, stormbolter and term. honours 95 pts.tht gives me 25points to spend,unless u think the old hq was better,any suggestions?:diespam: :spell: sorry for all the smileys,

(That being said, it would be pretty entertaining to see swarms of "servo skull" scarabs chasing down enemy units...that's something you'd expect to see more in an =I= army.)
And gauss blasters are NOT bolters with rending. They cause glancing hits on a 6 against vehicles, but that is far different from "Rending." They don't ignore armor saves, either.
Using the LOTD list is an option but it has certain limitations that may not appeal to the marine player. It is probably best to use the basic codex list with a few traits to tweak it and bring out the character that the prospective player desires.
oh sorry i think i misunderstood.im a noob.obviously ive had an idea on a chapter symbol:
<------- (changed my avatar to it)
what do u think?
Also ive changed my hq to
Captain with power weapon, stormbolter and term. honours 95 pts.
tht gives me 25points to spend
should i change my hq and what should i use the 25 points on?
