Cant go wrong with this, try buying one with a jump pack if you can find one, that or you might have to steal one from an assault marine, if your looking at a 1000 point game, you cannot beat a chaplain with 10 man assault squad.Um, id mostly stay away from this. One nice thing about it, is that it gives you power fists, and weapons, but in the new rules, you pretty much only need fists, for your sargents.SpaceMarine Command Squad(5)Probably need a 1500 list to field bikes, at least in my experance, unless your an expert bike user or something.Fast Attack
SpaceMarine Bikes(4)get 10. other wise perfect, give 2 in total plasma pistols. 1 sgt with powerfist and your set.SpaceMarine Assault Squad(5)Drop this, and instead pick up a tornado, or 2.SpaceMariner Land Speeder Typhoon(1)What kind of army do you want? consider picking up a set of BT tactical marines, and Spacewolf tactical marines. You should have at least 20 marines, so either way, pick up 2 boxes, that way youll have special weapons already including in the box, plus some powerfists for sargents. And a bunch of other things to model on your marines. Unless your playing strick ultra marines.SpaceMarine Tactical Squad(10)Well, these can be ok.. but a lot of people dont like them, id say use a proxy model first, see if you like how they play, then dicide once you get a few games under your belt, also compare it to how a drop pod proforms.SpaceMarine Rhino(1)Dont ever buy these.SpaceMarine Razorback(1)Alright, but becareful, you might not get what you want, the only good devistaors are 8 man, with ML 4 bolters.Heavy Support
Forged in the Furnace of war said almost all.
some things though.
Typhoons are bad, it's way better to go with tornado or multi-melta landspeeder, only use Typhoons as assistence when you have loads of the other two types.
Rhino's are ok in my opinion, but their uses are very limited nowadays, proxy it first like FITFOW said, and if you like it, buy one.
Razorbacks have their uses, but overall it's better to just get five man with a heavy weapon for same point cost.
The Devastator box is a great thing, however, do consider bying more of them, so you have at least 8 heavy weapons, to put in your tactical squads or Devastator Squads. For the best bargain buy the space wolves long fangs box, it has a lot of accesories next to the 4 heavy weapons in the box. It has powerfists and stuff in for your commanders, so that might be handy. Note you don't get missile launchers in the box but all the other heavy weapons are in there.
Hope that helps a little;
and and since FITFOW forgot these two:
yeedha! nice thing, I never leave home without them. There are many efficient ways to equip these chaps, but the best two configurations are:
1. Assault Cannon, Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon, Extra Armour and a Drop Pod (venerable) (furious Charge)
2. TL Lascannon, Missile Launcher, Extra Armour (venerable) (tank Hunters)
and the termies, easy to go wrong with.
Most point/efficient (what is important for Termies)
is to equip them with 2 assault cannons and a drop pod.
go killy when they land
Ok thx that all i needed to know
