    [2850] Friendly

    First off, this is my "everything I have right now" list. As such, it only totals out to 2726, so I need some ideas to get to the next mark. That IS 2850, right?

    Anyway, here it is:

    Traits: Cleanse and Purify, We Stand Alone

    HQ

    Epistolary, Terminator armor, Storm of the Emperor's Wrath, 140pts

    Terminator Command Squad, 7 termies, 2 assault cannon, 320pts

    Master of Sanctity, plasma pistol, artificer armor, bionics, terminator honors, jump pack 176pts

    Troops
    Tac Squad, 10 marines, Vet. SGT w/pfist and boltpistol, 2 plasma guns, drop pod, 230pts

    Tac Squad, 10 marines, Vet. SGT w/pfist and boltpistol, 2 meltaguns, drop pod, 230pts

    Tac Squad, 10 marines, Vet. SGT w/pfist and boltpistol, 1 plasma gun, 1 lascannon, 205pts

    Tac Squad, 10 marines, Vet. SGT w/pfist and boltpistol, 1 plasma gun, 1 heavy bolter, 195pts

    Scout Squad, 10 scouts, 9 sniper rifles, 1 heavy bolter, 180pts

    Scout Squad, 10 scouts, boltpistol and CCW, 130pts

    Elites
    Venerable Dreadnaught, Assault cannon, Storm bolter/CCW, Extra armor, Drop pod, 160pts

    Dreadnaught, TLLC, Missile Launcher, Extra armor, 140pts

    Fast Attack
    Assault Squad (will be led by chaplain), 10 marines, Vet. SGT with pfist+bolt pistol+combat shield, 2 plasma pistols, 265pts

    LST 80pts

    LST 80pts

    Heavy Support
    Devastator Squad, 8 marines, 4 missile launchers, 200pts

    Land Raider Crusader 265pts

    So that's what I've got, right now. I need 124 points to fill this out. Ideas, critiques, and criticisms welcome.

    Drop some marines from the non-drop podding squad and add 2 more lsts.

    Alternatively, add a whirlwind and give your librarien a second power.

    I like your squad set ups, good job.

    Hmm. But I already have 3 fast attack. So, I'd have to combine these into 2 squadrons of 2. Isn't that a tactical no-no?

    No, it's quite good, the only rule is to spread as much as you can, and yeah, sometimes you have a bad day, but combined fire-arms is good too.
    for the new milestone, I thought it was 3000, but I think big you know
    I advise you to boost up your Epistolary, since he's termie-squad and would likely ride in, or I really messed up in seeing your battleplan... I'd say give him fear the the darkness as second power, everyone would run away ^_^
    You could also go with a Close Combat Power, since your termies might actually end up there , Might of Heroes is more than likely to earn it's points back.
    It's seems like a good list, and the units you field are "what it takes".
    I'd love to see you on the battlefield.

    Yeah, I think I will boost up the Libby some. I love FotD, but unfortunately most of my opponents are either Space Marines or Bugs, so it's less effective than if I were facing other foes. One guy does play Tau a lot tho, so maybe for him

    I think I also might give the 2nd scout squad a vet SGT so I can take a teleport homer for the Libby and his command squad to teleport in on.

    I'm eventually shooting for 3000 pts, too, but I'll have to buy some more things to pump it up some. Although I do have some spare marine parts laying around, I guess I could field a squad of veterans-- I really like just the plain old space marine, so another squad of guys with bolters would make me happy.

    As was noted, just spread your lsts as much as possible and keep the OUT of rapid fire range of strength 4+ weapons.

    Personally I use 3 squads of 3 + a speeder special character. Works out fine all the time. Just apply the tactics in the speeder tactica and everything will work out for you and your lst's.

    I don't like the plasma pistol on the chaplain, but I have horrible luck with all plasma weapons.

    I'd put venerable on the lascannon missile launcher dread, more fire should be coming towards him during the game. The drop pod dread should only be a target for one turn or so.

    You could give your librarian another power to take up points, you could also give him a familiar too.

    As for the points, you could take more land speeders, a predator, or a whirlwind depending on what you're facing.
    I can read now!
