    A 1500 Bike list that may be a large chunk of cheddar

    This is an adaptation of a list that I posted a while back that got good feedback but I wasn't sure it was tournie worthy so here goes another try.

    My main question is A) is this list cheesy? on one hand I included Vulkan He'Stand and packed in as many MMs, meltas, THammers, and flamers as possible and this has been said to be effective/cheesy by a lot of SM players but at the same time I am using this tactic with a bike list which I have never seen done? I spend a lot of points on HQ which I don't like but I think this list could lay down a lot of hurt what do you guys think?

    1500pts.

    Space Marine Captain - 165
    -Bike
    -Thunder Hammer

    Vulkan He'Stan 190

    Space Marine Bike Squad- 250
    -Bikes (9)
    -Flamer (2)

    Space Marine Bike Squad- 345
    -Bikes (9)
    - Attack Bike (1)
    -Multimelta
    -Powerfist
    -Meltagun (2)

    Space Marine Bike Squad- 345
    -Bikes (9)
    - Attack Bike (1)
    -Multimelta
    -Powerfist
    -Meltagun (2)

    Tactical Squad (10) - 205
    -Multi-melta
    -Flamer
    -Drop Pod

    that is
    28 bikes (one of them is the commander)
    2 Attack bikes
    11 infantry (one of which is Vulkan He'Stan)
    3 Multimeltas
    4 Meltaguns
    3 Flamers
    1 Thunderhammer


    Feedback would be really appreciated

    Much Thanks,
    Antilles

    simply....yes... But otherwise it wouldn't be so bad. Obviously your using Vulkan as is instead of a Sallies army but its decent. Theres lots of people that will probably say not to do this because people feel strongly about special characters only playing in thier armies but whatever. This army does pack a serious punch.

    You think that people will look down at his army because of the fluff?

    I don't think so. Look at it this way. Vulkan He'stan travels the galaxy looking for relics of the primarch Vulkan. When he finds one it will often be held by enemies or those who are simply unwilling to give it up. So, he recruits forces from wherever necessary to get the relic. The Salamanders aren't always nearby, and I'm pretty sure that other chapters would be willing to help him. Paint the tac squad as Salamanders to represent his guard if it makes you feel better.

    Yes, a lot of "old players" have goosebumps when they hear that someone wants to use a special character and are ready to start a witch hunt if you want to use her/him in a different army.chapter. It will be controversial till GW moves the game into the 42nd millennium

    Well, as far as you army, you have a lot of bikes there for a 1500 list, you will be hard to pin down, I hope you will strike just as hard...

    Looks good actually, perhaps low on the anti-horde side but you can't have everything. Make sure you offer some support to your TACs as they will be sticking out up front alone...
