Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am a solitary BA player in a sea of GKs. That being said, it isn't all that hard to counter these lists. Plasma spam is the obvious answer, maybe throw in the odd missile launcher for those rifleman dreads. I want to mix it up. I love playing a fast, aggressive assault marine force. So, here is my proposed list with this in mind.
-another psychic power (suggestions would be good)
Sternguard veteran squad
-5x extra marines
-5x extra marines
-4x additional marines
-4x missile launchers
I know I went over by 3 points, most of my games are casual and whomever I am playing is ok with it. The priests and librarians would split and go with the assault marines. The sternguard vets will deal with any fast moving elements (interceptors). devastators will deal with the dreadnoughts and transports. What do you think? My main concern is the mobility of the devastators, should I drop something for a rhino each? Thanks in advance for the input
nothing like inter species cooperation!
Your devastators should never move, make sure to deploy them where they have a good LOS. Drop the Powerfists from the Sang. Priests and the Sternguard; add a few combi-meltas to your vets and give your priests swords/LC(if they can take them.) You should have a few extra points to equip your assault squads with either flamers or meltaguns.
Azraell suggestions are golden, also, drop the rhino and get a drop pod, I wouldn't be surprised if your rhino got popped the first turn. You can also put a locater beacon on the drop pod and deep strike all your assault marines in next to it, which gives you an alternative agaisnt jetting across the board against very very shooty lists.
Thanks Juggulator, and I totally agree. I saw the Sternguard and immediately thought they had a Drop Pod, and didn't check it again...my mistake.
But, I would be concerned about the only thing he would have on the board would be the Drop Pod and Sternguard to face off against 1500pts of Greyknights, and that is pretty f***ing scary. What I could see is maybe dropping some of the extra bodies from the Devastators and adding a Dreadnought or 2 with a Drop pod. That will give you some extra threats to their army and your first wave possibly not be completely decimated.
