    Theoretical techmarine list

    Hey all, following a recent thread for the techmarine + jump pack (or bike) i was wondering is this a viable option game play wise. Heres a quick idea i had for what this list might look like. . .

    Traits - Scions of mars, Heed the wisdom of the ancients
    Death before dishonour

    H.Q. 201
    Techmarine - extra wound, full servo harnes, space marine bike, iron halo, bolt pistol, terminator honours, master crafted

    Elites 360
    Techmarine - full servo harness
    Dreadnought - venerable, extra armour
    Dreadnought - venerable, extra armour

    Troops 436
    Space marines x 10 - melta gun, rhino, extra armour, smoke launchers
    Space marines x 10 - melta gun, rhino, extra armour, smoke launchers

    Fast attack 148
    Bike squadron x 4 - 2 x melta guns

    Heavy support 355
    Predator annihilator - heavy bolters, extra armour
    Predator annihilator - heavy bolters, extra armour
    Whirlwind

    Total 1500 pts

    The tooled up h.q. is a bit of fun but i think hes quite good, 5 power fist attacks basic 6 on charge, T 5, 2+/4+ save, twin linked plasma pistol and a flamer. He just misses the WS 5 of other h.q. but hey ho cant have it all. This list is just a rolling wall of armour not the best tactic in the world but this list is just for a bit of fun.
    Any one else out there with more exp with techmarine plz advise, everyone else rip apart as you see fit. :happy:

    If a Terminator can't use a Jump Pack or Bike, why the hell should a Servo Harness that is the same size (if not bigger because of the extra arms) be able to?
    Okay so it doesn't say it's illegal in the codex, but please be sensible about it, I doubt that GW would have expected people to want to try it.

    Why ever not. I have.
    Although I do see the biker techmarine being a thing of the past with the next marine codex I have found it to be an exrtemely effective model on the table top.
    And besides all the techmarine has to do is fold all of the arms in behind him before he rides into combat.

    Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.

    Thanks JvK for at least answering some of my questions! Anyone who wants to discus the legality of it i refer to . . . http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...echmarine.html
    Allthough i do admit it may disappear in the next codex im looking at it from a modeling and gaming point of veiw atm so any more comments on the list would be welcome. 8Y

    take Master crafted away from the techmarine HQ, it's not needed.

    also he's legal, even though it is a pain in the *** to model.
    Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.

    Actually he is actually quite easy to do if you know where to find the right parts.

    Basing him on a normal biker you use

    -The bike, biker legs and one of the arms from the biker sprue.
    -The techmarine torso and should guards from the Land Raider or Rhino sprues.
    - A power weapon arm from the tactical squad/spacemarine commander sprues

    Top this all off with a full servo harness on his back and you get a mostly plastic techmarine on a bike. It is advisable however to put him on a 40mm round base for stability and the fact it looks pretty cool as well..
