Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey, this is my first marine list, i purchased the starter box set with orks and marines, but i soon sold them :/
So will i collect again, i have absolutely no idea. But i was curious if this would be a good 1000pt starter army?
Chaplin * Goes with assault marines
flamer, missile launcher
snipers, missile launcher
5 terminators(should i have normal terminators or assault terminators?)
with either plasma or assault cannon
9 assault marines
sg with Power fist
I think this is a alright list, how could it be more competitive? Do i have to many units? All comments and advice appreciated, cheers guys
The vindicator's going to die pretty fast, followed fairly quickly by the dreadnought. Both are high value threats, and not all that hard to kill. I suggest dumping both of them.
Get a second tactical squad with the points, and add another assault marine to that squad. (also, give them a pair of plasma pistols so they have a little extra light AT)
Missiles are fine on the Tactical squads, though I prefer lascannons or plasma cannons. I suggest giving them meltaguns though, and combi-meltas on the sergeants. It's a powerful combo for kill tanks (plasma and combi-plasma is fine too) Bolters, power armour, and good tactics generally cover your anti-horde needs, so I generally avoid flamers.
People generally consider TH/SH terminators better over the shooty ones, although I think an argument can be made in favor of assault cannon or ML terminators that footslog. And vindicators are suppose to die fast so the rest of his stuff can get into bolter range.
