Greetings and Salutations
just starting up a small 600pt DA army. Never played a game in my life but my friend wants me to get into it, with some advice from the helpful staff at Games Workshop here is my rough draft of my army list, keep in mind i will be fighting a Gaurdsmen army so i went pretty heavy on meltas' and bombs:
HQ: Chaplain 100pt
+plasma pistol 15pts
Troops: 5 man tactical squad 90pts
+ 5 additional marines 75pts
+missile launcher 10pts
+melta gun 10pts
+melta bombs 5 pts
5 man tactical 90 pts
+melta gun 10 pts
+melta bombs 5 pts
fast attack: 5 man assault squad 125pts
+power fist 25pts
+1 plasma pistols 15pts
+ melta bombs 5 pts
I have all these units currently, unpainted and un-modelled as i don't want to put the together and then find that i should have used different additional wargear.
Any suggestions or additional units i can swap out if the situation warrants?
thnx in advance
This should of been posted in the Army Lists section but a mod should hopefully move it (if there is an active one on the Marine boards).
Anyway I'll comment still.
If you are fighting Guard I would say don't use Meltas, swap these for Plasma guns to counter act the hordes of Guardsmen. Drop the Plasma Pistol on the Chaplain and add another set to the Assault Squad. You don't wanna lose your HQ to one bad Plasma shot. Drop the Melta Bombs and try and fit a Lascannon instead of the Missile Launcher into the 10 man squad, this has a higher chance of dealing to vehicles than the Missile Launcher does.
thnx heaps for the great tips, sorry for not posting in appropriate section, made the changes to my army list, anyone got some great tips?
