I am thinking about buying a starter army for Space Marines and wondered what you think of this for a starter list?
The idea is for it to be used against any opponent.
HQ: Recluisarch+bp+frag gren+jump pack=107
Vet serg for Assault Squad+powerfist=52
I plan on using the squad with the missile launcher to stay still and blast away, while the other two squads can move and fire to wherever they're needed.
What do you think? :yes:
I think that's a great starter army.
It is indeed a nice starter army, though there is just one option i might consider.
Dropping the assualt marines down to 5 and the tactical squads down to 5, an grabbing a landspeeder Tornado with those 80 points. It'll add alot of firepower to the list. Just a thought at least.
He's coming for you...
Landspeeders are also more fragile than the 4 marines you seek to drop.
It's a nice list, although I'd say to add the trait which lets you take 2 special weapons.
Then get yourself a squad with 4 bolter marines and 2 plasmagun marines. Those will kill stuff. Make your other squad 5 man with Missile launchers, change nothing more. That will help alot I think. Might even take the Take The Fight to Them trait to change the equipment of the missiile launcher squad to ccw+bp so they can fight back in CC. it's a great list, but by using traits you can utilise your army to a point that you like most.
