    1,500 points marines

    This is my 1500 point list and i would like to know how to improve it:

    Captain
    Relic blade =140
    Storm shield

    Tactical marines x10 =250
    Plasmacannon
    plasma gun
    serg w pw
    rhino w extra armour

    Tactical marines x10 =170
    heavy bolter
    flamer

    Scouts x5
    snipers
    camo cloaks = 90

    Sterguard x5
    lasacannonx2 = 155

    Sterngaurd x7
    Combi-melta =170
    lightnig claw

    Venerable dreadnoughht =200
    heavy flamer
    assault cannon
    Extra armour

    Predator
    Lasascnon sponsors =120

    Terminators x5
    Cyclone missle launcher =235
    Chain fist x1
    Ttoal = 1500

    Nothing more funny than 3 inquisitors with sanctify when facing deamons. They cant do anything while you stand in front of them having a tee break.

    looking at your list the thing that stand out most are the sternguard with lascannons. You probably want to drop the lascannons from the squad. Use devastators for a function like that. Giving a sterngaurd a heavy weapon means he isn't advancing taking full advantage of his special bolter rounds and 2 attacks in close combat.

    Aslo I think I would move the rhino from the tac squad with the plasma cannon to the 7 man sternguard squad with the melta and lighting claw. This will portect your more expensive troops and allow them to get stuck in quickly if need be.

    You might consider dropping the 5 man sternguard squad all togther in favor of making 1 a 10 man squad.

    actually, i've heard that 5x Sternguards with 2x Lascannons is cheaper than 5x Devastators with 2x Lascannons...

    however, i may be wrong as i do not have a Codex: Space Marines.

    It is cheaper point wise but I consider it a waste of their considerable skills. You can always move points around to acccount for the sligt increase in cost. you may consider something like the following:

    Captain
    Relic blade

    Tactical marines x10
    Plasmacannon
    plasma gun


    Tactical marines x10 =170
    heavy bolter
    flamer

    Scouts x5
    snipers
    missle launcher

    Sterngaurd x 9
    Combi-melta
    lightnig claw
    rhino with extra armor
    (place captain here)

    Devastators x 5
    2 missle launchers

    Venerable dreadnoughht
    heavy flamer
    assault cannon
    Extra armour

    Predator
    Lasascnon sponsors

    Terminators x5
    Cyclone missle launcher

    I didn't point it out but it should be about right probably a little under. The devastators with the missle launchers should give your list more diversity and the ability to anit tank. just my two cents. I hope some of my suggestions will spark new ideas.

    personly i use a squad of sternguard with 2 lasacannons for a gouple of reasons.
    Firstly its 5 points cheeper
    Secoundly if they get charged thats 10 attacks instead of 8 attacks
    Lastly those 3 sterguard will be usful if facing monstrus creatures such as carnifexes with there hell fire rounds.

    Im a bity hiesatant in putting a rhino and captain with the sternguard beacuse they are supposed to just sit back and fire and i dont want them to get into ccb so putting the cptain wit them would render him usless. My general plan was to split the tactical squad into 5 and the 5 with the serg and plasma gun would go with the captain and hop into thwe rhino to take objectives.
    i can see your point but as i need some fast troops in this army to capture ojects i wil stick with the tactical squad. Thanks anyway

    just out of curiosity, what long-ranged anti-infantry weapons can sternguard take to complement their awesome bolter? heavy bolters? missile launchers? or maybe even assault cannons?

    cheers!
