what to do w/ 60 points?
I like this list, it's a little different. But it has a few kinks that need fixing. 1) Your Predator is going out the window, 1 tank is just going to get wasted right away. The points from that and the leftover points you already had are almost enough for an 8 man devastator squad with 4 Missile Launchers, a much more resilient, and versatile unit. So find 10 points somewhere and you'll be set. 2) Consider giving the first Tac squad a heavy weapon if you can find the points. Good Luck, Cheers.
Whoa, time out, I missed a few major things. 3) Lose the drop pod on the termies, they need to be shooting as long as possible. Unless your planning on popping tanks in which case give them cyclones and tank hunters, then you could drop pod them. 4) Lose the drop pod on Tac squad one, give it a heavy weapon. Your Tac squads should be support fire for your assault squad and chappie, and they'll need as many distractions as you can give them. Ok, you really do have an awesome list in the works here, just needs some tweaking. Good Luck.
I agree that losing the Predator would be helpful, as the 130 points that you'd have to play with could be used for better things. I'd also drop the plasma pistols on my assault squad, in addition to both the Terminator Honours and Bionics on the Chaplain (or if you're set on keeping the Honours, demote him to a Reclusiarch), as this will open up enough points for you to include 2 Land Speeder Tornados, which are quite useful in a Drop Pod Marine army.
the point of the first tac squad is a combat tac squad. it drops near the opponents and shoots a lot into them. next turn, the meltagun and bolt pistol fire and then charge! i can find 10 points by removing bionics from both the chappie and the librarian. the 3rd wound on the chaplain is invaluable when charging because he's gonna draw a lot of fire. the plasma pistols are also invaluable because they can knock out light-medium armored vehicles and heavy infantry. finally, land speeder tornadoes got really nerfed by the new erretas.
It did? How? In that it can't Deep Strike and fire in the same turn? I don't know many people that did that in the first place...Originally Posted by bladeofdeath3
that was the whole point of the tornadoes. you deep strike, then you open up with 7 shots. now they count as moving over 12" when deep striking :'(
With their speed, why wait till turn 2 or three to get them on the table? Just set em up on the flanks of the table behind cover and wreak havoc on the foe each turn.
breath, sight, squeeze.
now double tap just for grins
and Another One bite's the dust.
A bolter round for all that oppose the Emperor.
That's how most people do it. You have to wait until at least turn 2 for Deep Strikers to show up anyway... why not have them on the table from the start?Originally Posted by Chaplain Stephen
my friends play ig and have 3+ leman russ' in 1000 points. that's why i dont start anything on the table. 75% of my guys are deep strikers. allows me to not get totally obliterated 1st turn.
