Welcome to Librarium Online!
Myself and a mate bought an Ultramarines army from ebay as a basis for a second army for us to play around with. I've listed below basically what we have, and just wondered on peoples advice for where to take it. It'll basically be facing 2 x Chaos armies, 1 x Tyranid, 1 x Eldar, 1 x Tau and 1 x Imperial Guard - so quite a mixed bag.
We've had one fight, and so far I'm thinking LandSpeeders are incredible, especially for points cost, so thinking of going for more of them. Also thinking of a terminator squad and a marine assault squad.
1 x Commander
40 x Marines (sprinkling of heavy weapons)
3 x Dreadnoughts
1 x Vindicator
1 x landSpeeder
So, also probably need to invest in a couple of rhino's I'm thinking (used some IG Chimera's as models for first game!).
What kind of tanks do people reckon are good?
Any advice appreciated!
Good score on the army ^_^
A Rhino or two would add to the amout of targets you present in the form of armour. You want armour? Go all out. 3x Dreads, Vindi, Speeders, and a Rhino+ Drop Pod would really be a headache, even for Guard (maybe not the Tau army though, depends on what he uses)
Would you use Devistators (your heavy weapons in here)? Or heavy weapons in your troops units?
Or get a cheap pt Predator? How would you like to allocate your Dreadnoughts, 2x Elite ones and a Heavy Dread + Vindi + something else? or would you like the Dreads and Vindi as Heavy, and use less Elites stots? Small question, big impact in your point total
Either way, I would go against Assault Marines, and go for some Scouts, or more Tactical Marines Everyone loves Assault Marines, but I can see this list grinding down an opponent with foot troops and armour, and having great counter-attack potential with lots of Troops and some Termies. I reckon, anyways And I like it
Good Luck with it, let us know how it goes ^_^
