So a buddy is thinking of starting a new space marines army and asked for my advice on a shrike list... I offered up the following and figured I'd post it here for some good feedback as well....
8 Assault Terminators SS/TH
Shrike(attached to the terms)
5x 10 CCW/BP scouts, sergent with PF
1x 10 CCW/BP scouts, sergent with Powersword
3x Preds with HB side sponsons
This is a go first fleeting hidden powerfist army... It will have problems with dawn of war scenerios, but I figured, just outflank the entire army for those lol... It will kinda play like an old alpha legion army...
Tone down the terminators, five should be fine. Use the points to upgrade the preds to AC/2LC to give the army some anti tank ability outside of combat.
For balance I think swapping in a couple of vanilla tac squads to 2 of the troop choices would make objective holders more resilliant and add a little shooting flexibility.
Also not one assault squad for Shrike to join? disgraceful
