Hy, ive been a long time Eldar player, and with 5th edition i figured i might try an go SM, just to try diffent game style.
This is my 1st SM list, so every comment apreciated.
here how it goes:
Captain w/ jump pack, articifier armor, relic blade
command squad w/champ, banner, power weapons, melta gun in a razorback(TL AC)
Tactical w/ meltagun, PC, in a Rhino
Scouts w/ Power weapon, melta bomb
Dread in a pod
Assault squad w/ power weapon, combat shield
bike squad (5 bikes) w/ 2 melta guns, 1 attack bike (MM)
Land speeder strom w/ MM
predator w/ sponsors LC
that it, i though using the Dread pod as a decoy/fire magnet while i advance with my core units, using my fast attack to support my mech advance. using bikes/ scout in the skimmer to cover my flank/objective.
nothing fancy yet but i wanna try it out seem to have good CC and shooty power even though short range, can still punch a hole in a lot of targets if i place my troops right.
what u season SM'ers think?
First of, welcome to space Marines, as a former Eldar player I was similarly drawn for a different feel. My first comment, would be you definitely dont have enough troops, at 1500 you want as least 3, is really just asking for problems especially with scouts. I would only take 1 HQ at 1500, especially with Space marine's. My personal feel is Bikes offer more survivability than jumpers, and are just better rounded. Turbo Boost is wonderful. That being said, I would take one or the other. In the Tac Squad I would just stick with the free ML, its free, and a wonderful weapon is the Plasma Cannon really worth what you have to pay vs. the Missile Launcher. Some swear by it, but I think its really a Luxury. I like to run, a HQ on a Bike with a relic Blade. and take two Bike Squads as Troops, with 1 or 2 Tac Squads in Rhino's or Dropping. A list I usually play is pretty similar to this one:
-w/ Bike, Relic Blade
Dreadnaught 155 (310)
-w/ Multi Melta, Extra Armor
6 Space Marine Bikers + 1 Attack Bike 250 (500)
-2 w/ Melta Gun
-Sergent w/ Power Fist
-Attack Bike w/ Multi Melta
10 man Tactical Squad (235)
-1 w/ Missile Launcher
-1 w/ Melta gun
-1 w/ Sergeant w/ Power Fist
Fast Attack: 1&2: (140)
Land Speeder 70
-w/ 2x Multi Melta
Heavy Support: 140
Predator - 140
-w/ Lascannon Sponsons
Hope this helped
