    CCS, Vox 55

    Troops:
    PCS, Vox 35
    IS Vox 55

    if you put the 3 autocannons in the PCS and 2 IS's you protect your cannons and save 45 points. drop Ex armour on the tank. now ad marbo for winsauce.

    Voxes aren't really needed in general, but they are completely pointless if there aren't any weapons in the squads. CCS is BS4 and can take a ton of weapons/gear, load them up. Same goes for the PCS.

    Extra Armour is junk. Weapons on the chimeras should be Multilaser/Heavy Flamer. Consider upgrading the gun on the LR to a lascannon for some added versatility (not needed, though). Other than that, not bad. Just add more guns.

    The PCS can take a single heavy weapon. The Infantry Squads can take one each.

    Chimeras should never take turreted HBs. Multilasers are always better.

    Welcome to LO!

    I think your list would be better with some more weapons, you'd have to drop Marbo though.

    Give your infantry squads grenade launchers, aswell as a fourth to your platoon command squad.

    Your company command squad also looks like it would love a pair of grenade launchers.

    That should leave you with 40 points, which is just enough for a scout sentinel with an autocannon or a heavy flamer, normally i'd suggest the autocannon but in your list at this point value I actually think that the heavy flamer would be a better choice.

    Kevin V. makes some decent points, but at 750 giving up marbo is a tough sell. Marbo is a beast for his points, but he is frail. If you favor a riskier play style, I'd suggest keeping him. If you want to play more conservatively make the changes that KV suggested.

    Well I find Marbo is best around 1500pts, as is there wont be very many valuble targets for him to hit, although he is more likely to survive into the turn after he is used I just dont know if he's worth it in low point games.

    I guess it's like you said, a more conservative way to play, weather or not it's better would be personal prefrence but if you're starting out it can be good to see a lot of different vets views.

    The primary argument in favor of Marbo in lower point games is that a demo charge can have a disproportionate impact if the dice gods favor you. Above 1500, your opponent is likely to have a large enough mass of troops to take the hit and get a free kill-point for your trouble. My own favorite Marbo story happened at 500. In that case he managed to take out a DA dev squad and a Dread before being taken down in a hail of bolter fire. Your mileage may vary.
