Welcome to Librarium Online!
I originally posted this under the general Space Marine thread but thought this maybe more suitable.
I have finbished the inital part of my 500 point hit and run tactic space marines, based on / around Kayvaan Shrikes own mish mash army.
I currently have
Chaplain mounted on a bike
5 Assualt Marines
+ jet packs
+ 1 ligtning claw
Attack bikes x 2
+ Multi Melta
Scout Squad x 5
+ Camo Cloaks
+ 4 Sniper rifels
+ 1 missle launcher
Tactical Squad + Sergant
standrad bolt guns
This amounts to around 500 with add ons etc, but dont have my definitive list to hand.
Im looking at expanding this to a 1000 point army, i still want to use my tactics playing style which is as follows, however id just like to expand upon it -
The chaplain is used as an independant charicter, zooming around with turbo boosters joining squads preparing for an attack especally the assualt marines, he grants them a re roll, so with the charge, 2 CC weapons and his re roll ability its a pritty effect attack.
they hold up the location / strategic position etc and he zooms off to go and help some other squad out some where else or just the attack bikers who maybe preparing to drive back a tank, combat squad / scout squad arrive and take control of the location and the assualt marines are off again.
the attack bikers are there to take on any tanks or to cause a distraction if things arent going to plan with the assualts.
i currently have Shrike and his wing made up of Vanguard Veterans + Lighting Claws painted etc ready to go but due to there extremelly high point cost was hoping to leave them out till around 2000 point games once im ready.
I have been toying around with the idea of adding the following
Making the Squad 10 man, with 2 flamers, the rest CC weapons
Making the Scout Squad 10 man, with a 2 snipers 3 more heavy duty weapons
1 more attack bike + multi melta
However this only come out at around 890 or so, and im unsure what to include next
if anyone has recomendations to playing style, additional squads etc please let me know what you think. my 500 point has proven pritty good and solid and hopefully i want to carry this on to 1000 entering some competetions.
Thanks for reading my novel,

Hace also thought of an assualt terminator squad.
tatic would be to have the snipers equipped with the teleport hommer and with there ability to infiltrate i could in therory land my terminator assualt squad (eqquipped with claws and sheilds in keeping with my fluff) teleport onto the field and strike vengance ,
although i have no experiance with terminators are they good to be used as i have described?
