Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I'm very new to BA but I've done about 3 games with them(and this list) so far with mixed results. First was a loss v.s Daemons, 2nd was a draw v.s Daemons, and 3rd was a win v.s Black Templar.
I cant find any obvious flaws in the list really but then again I'm very new to the idea of a fast assault oriented army and power armor! So any army building or tactics input is welcome! Thanks!
3 Jump Packs
10 Tac Marines
10 Tac Marines
8 Veteran Assault Marines
Attack Bike w/multi-melta
What I've been doing is splitting my Tac marines into combat squads, placing the Plasma Cannon in cover and sending the p-fist and flamer off in the Rhinos to support the jump troops with close fire support and the rhinos to disrupt LOS. The biggest surprise thus far is how effective the lowly flamer can be even in marine armies! haha I dunno any advice?
They aren't a bad choice, pegging 2 extra terminators or marines before the charge can really help, though if that's their purpose i'd be more tempted by plasma pistols (cheaper extra attack in CC, slight risk of explosion) which still fry termies etc just fine or a pair of claws (slightly pricier but more killing power vs infantry).
And always always give assault squads power fists, last thing you want is for these guys to get stuck in combat with some T 6 tarpit (cheap fex's come to mind, wraithlords too).
Imagine people will disagree with me on the meltas but the power fist thing seems pretty universal.
Thats the prob though vet assaults carry that sorta stuff, ive got a 5000 point bd army, and both my vet assaults have meltas a flamer and a plasma gun and multiple power weapons. Also u got only three death watch marines their free get a squad full with a chaplin (nasty combo), id bin lemartes if u dont put him with the death company, get mephiston (tough nut librarian str5 T5 and some awsome powers) or dante 4 attacks 2+ ave 4+invun 4 power attacks, infero pistol is nasty as well, you'l have to sacrifice some upgrades to fit one of these in but i think their worth it, i noticed the lack of heavy support try a 5 man dev squad with hvy weapons these pack a punch and give good support,
Tell me how u get along, hope this helps,
