    Space Marine 500pt - 1000pt.

    Hey i'm planning on joining the escalation league in my local GW store so first it starts off as 500pts then im gonna need a 1000pt army. So this is what i got so far for the 500pt from the help of the people in the space marine forums.

    500 Points

    HQ

    Captain 60pts
    -Power Weapon +15pts
    -Storm Bolter +5pts
    =80pts

    Troops

    2x Tactical Squad
    -4x Sm
    -1x Sergeant -Bolter
    -ML +10pts
    =85pts 85x2= 165pts

    1x Tactical Squad
    -4x Sm
    -1x Sergeant -Bolter
    -Heavy Bolter +5pts
    =80pts

    Fast Attack

    2x Land Speeder Tornado
    -AC
    -HB
    =80pts 80x2=160pts

    Total
    = 490pts

    Ok so thats what i got so far for the 500pts any suggestions welcome. I have no idea what i should get for the 1000pt thing if i even get there . One thing i wanna know is do i havta keep this layout if i enter it and then when it comes to the 1000pt i just gotta add to it or can i change it completely. I was also wondering for the seargents do i havta use a seargent model or can i use a simple space marine cause the boxes only come with 1 seargent and 9 sm's and i dont wanna havta buy 3. Any thoughts and advice welcome.
    -edit- I forgot to mention that i was gonna amke this a blood raven army so if im doing it all wrong and stuff please let me know.

    I would give him a bolt or plasma pistol

    -4x Sm
    -1x Sergeant -Bolter
    -ML +10pts
    =85pts 85x2= 165pts

    ok, if you have any extra points then upgrade to lascannons, but these are fine

    2x Land Speeder Tornado
    -AC
    -HB
    =80pts 80x2=160pts

    For 1000pts, I would get Assault Marines, and upgrade Captain to Chaplin with Jump Pack. Mabey more men, or even a dreadnought or whirlwind.

    I like your army though

    Alright so for the 1000pts taking blue waves suggestions i came up with this.

    1000pts

    HQ

    Reclusiarch 85pts
    -Power weapon 15pts
    -Storm Bolter 5pts
    =105pts

    Elites

    Dreadnought
    -Ml +10pts
    =115pts

    Troops

    2x Tactical Squad
    -4x Space Marine
    -1x Sergeant -bolter
    -ML +10pts
    =170pts

    2x Tactical Squad
    -4x Space Marine
    -1x Sergeant
    - Plasmagun 10pts
    =170pts

    Fast Attack

    2x Land Speeder Tornado
    -Ac
    -Hb
    =160pts

    Heavy Support

    Devastator Squad
    -7x Space Marine
    -1x Sergeant
    -2x Hb
    -2x Ml
    =190pts

    Whirlwind
    =85pts

    Total
    =995pts

    As you can hopefully tell this army is completely ranged. The plan is to just sit back and shootem down. The Whirlwind with strike and weaken anything important or anything not in the range of my marines bolters. The dreadnoguht is to help take out tanks and infantry. The devastator squad Helps take out infantry and vehicles also. LAnd speeder tornados are there to flank enemy units. Any advice and suggestions welcome. The only problem is im not to sure this might work becausei dont really know what are the basis of other armies other then IG which is mass units and some nice vehicles.

    If you are going to have an army that is completely ranged, I'd stick with the commander of your first list. Chaplains are much better when they are dedicated to CC and are leading a unit equipped in the same way. If you plan to just shoot with him, you lose the use of their special abilities, which also makes the storm bolter a less than great choice for a ranged weapon. Bolt pistols are probably the best ranged weapon for function and cost. Also a chaplain already comes with the equivalent of a power weapon, so buying another one for him is not needed.
