This is my universal armylist of 1750 points.
Librarian, terminator armor, epistolary.
5 Assault Terminators, 3T and S and 2 LC
Dreadnought, Assault cannon, heavy flamer
10x Sternguard veterans, 1x combimelta
10x Tactical marines, ML, Flamer, sergeant have PW
10x Tactical marines, ML, meltagun, sergeant have PW
Landraider godhammer pattern
1x Landspeeder, multimelta, heavy flamer
Predator, sidesponsored lascannons, autocannon
The Landraider is Dedicated to the termies, and the librarian will allways stay with the Terminators so he will too start in the raider.
The Rhinos are ment to be for the two Tactical squads as both protection and taxi, if the situation require it.
The Landspeeder is a very flexible unit, which is why I gave it opportunity to be good vs tank but also against infantry.
Well much more to tell so I keep it to the basics so you dont need to spend all night reading my post (if anyone would do such thing)
your landraider can only transport 10 models, 5 in terminator armour, so the libby wontbe able to go with them. perhaps geta redeemer or crusader instead?
what are your sternguard planning on doing? consider a rhino or drop pod for them
The Landraider can Carrie 12 models.
Well maybe it's worth to give them a Drop pod at the cost of taking away the "epistolary" upgrade from my Librarian
The Raider has got a transport capacity of 12, so no harm done there. Just keep in mind that models in terminator armour take up two spaces.
walking sternguard might not be a very good idea. The intention is for them to soften up your opposition so they need a way of getting to the front line. better get these a transport. only a single combi weapon? that is very limiting. Try and squeeze some more in there.
The speeder will often end up to be a suicide unit. I prefer to take two in my list and not just a single one to increase the possibility of it actually doing something.
I've got the same problem with that lonely thunderfire cannon. This is a very vulnerable unit to start with. Even with the techmarines bolster defences rule, how many times will you actually have a suitable ruïn or the likes in your deployment zone to put it in? A lonely one is likely to be taken out early in the game.
Gotta agre with Boradsword here, try sticking in another couple of combi melters in there, you don't lose out on your special ammo and your gaining some limited anti tank fire which is a must now days with guard armies being so tanked up, this also comes in handy if you are gonna chose a drop pod for your stern guard, dropping them down landing near a vehicle you can pop it with ease!
To be hounest, i would leave the speeder at home, there so easy to take out and when you get them in close your not really gonna get much shooting.
As for the rest of the list, looking good!
The thunder-fire is up to you, yes it will be fragile by its self but its gonna lay down some good fire before it can be taken out (hopefully)
Well, I converted a flamer and a bolter, the mission was succsessful. So I got two now.
The problem for me is that I cant but just weapons. So I dont know how to get more combiweapons. And yeah I'm talking about modelling.
I prefer using WYSIWYG for my models too, but for playtesting there is no shame in proxying a normal bolter to a combi something.
The plastic captain kit comes with both a combi melta and plasma. combi flamers are hard to come by though. If you buy the sternguard kit, you only get one marine with a combi melta.
Just try some more conversions of your everyday plastic bolter. A single unit of my sternies can come with 4 or 5 different conversions for combi flamers.
You can look into bits stores, but combi weapons are almost always out of stock. So probably you'll end up converting the lot of them.
Well yeah, i converted a standard bolter with a flamer yesterday and the result was really good actually. I need to find more flamers though =P
I know its not most cost effective may of doing this but there is a combi flamer in the space marines conversion set from forge world!
Yeah xD, but my question is, What weapon combo should I use on my termies?
