Im relatively new here. I play tau normally, but I am planning to start a new marine army. So far I just have a tactical squad, but I plan to expand with a battle force soon. This is my first list, any help would be great.
Pedro Kantor - 175
10 Man Sternguard squad - 320
2 combi-meltas, powerfist sergeant, drop pod
10 man tactical squad - 215
Missile, meltagun, sergeant with meltabombs, rhino
10 man tactical squad - 215
Lascannon, flamer, rhino
5 man scout squad - 75
Total - 1000
I plan to put Pedro with the sterguard and come in hard but not too deep behind, use the melta tactical squad as assault reinforcements for them, provide range support and hold objectives with the lascannon squad, and then outflank and objective hold/grab with the scout squad.

this is a good star but you have a couple of problems.
pedro kantor is quite expensive, he takes up almost a 5th of your points. i would buy the model but just use him as a captain until at least 1500 pts.
sternguard are good, especially if you are looking ti build up a themed list later on with pedro. in objective games then i would combat squad them when they get out the drop pod.
troops are good but i would ditch the scouts and get a razorback fore the one without a transport and then combat squad. serge and flamer goes forwards and rocket launcher stays back.
ill post more later
Decent list to start with.
Pedro will give you a boost in objective games with your sternguard. As in previous post of mr.darkness, in objective games, combat squad those sternies. Pedro is a tad expensive for this pointslevel and be carefull with him. He isn't as survivable as you might want him to be. The second factor to keep in mind is that he makes your army stubborn. This might be advantageous in some cases, but personally I prefer ATSKNF.
Personally, I'd drop the scout squad to free up some points. Use them to upgrade the rhino's for your tacs to razorbacks for some extra firepower. Give special CC weapons to the sarges in your tac squads too. PF is my favourite. if any points left, use them for extra combi weapons for your sternguard
Thanks for the replies!
If I was to drop the scouts and give the tac squads razorbacks, I would always combat squad the tac squads pretty much right? My only worry is in KP games that means a lot more Kps available.
Ill do some math and post a possible change in a bit.
EDIT: How does this look?
HQ: Pedro - 175
Elites: 10 man sternguard - 325
2 combi-meltas, 1 combi-flamer, powerfist, drop pod
10 man tactical squad - 255
Meltagun, missile launcher, sarge with powerfist, razorback
10 man tactical squad - 245
flamer, Lascannon, sarge with powerfist, razorback
