    750 Dark Angels vs. Chaos

    Okay, I'll be playing Chaos Space Marines tonight and have put a list together...

    Arkaan Adeodatus (Epistolary Profile)
    Terminator Honors
    Stubborn
    Iron Halo
    Storm of the Emperor's Wrath
    Fury of the Ancients
    169pts

    Tactical Squad (6)
    Lascannon
    Plasma Gun
    115pts

    Tactical Squad (6)
    Lascannon
    Plasma Gun
    115pts

    Ravenwing Bike Squad (3)
    2x Meltaguns
    Meltabombs
    146pts

    Assault Squad (eight)
    Veteran Sergeant
    Powerfist
    2x Plasma Pistols
    206pts

    751pts


    Tactics: Librarian stands back and annoy's advancing units, counter charges units that reach the front line with force weapon and SotEW.

    Tacs provide long range support fire and anti tankiness.

    Assault Squad and Bikes utilize cover and ravenwing abilities to reach the enemy weak point unmolested. Support each other.

    By your Librarian 'annoying' the Chaos do you mean using a Psychic power that works out as a 169pt Heavy Bolter if your opponent is halfway clever? Because for those points you could do alot more. Your opponent is Chaos, any Mark of Chaos, be it Undivided or otherwise confers almost total morale protection, Ld 10 with re-roll wont be pinned and neither will Fearless.

    Two Shooty powers is something I would never contemplate, you want to lauch a counter attack? then take VoTime and hack up twice as many with all the re-rolls as well as surving thier return attacks twice as well.

    I would be tempted to give him a Plasma Pistol if I was desparate for a smite-like power, it's alot more reliable than a S4 blast and can be used in conjunction with VoT.

    I might also be tempted to swap the Melta's on the Bikes for Flamers unless you expect to be facing a large amount of armour. Melta bombs and 2 Lascannon ought to be enough at 750pts, and Flamers are better anti-infantry weapons and ought to do more to soften up the Chaos.

    Okay, using your suggestions, that reworks to...

    Arkaan Adeodatus (Epistolary)
    Terminator Honors
    Stubborn
    Iron Halo
    Veil of Time
    Bolt Pistol
    Frag Grenades
    170pts

    Ravenwing Bike Squad (3)
    2x Flamers
    132pts

    I'm now at 745 pts.

    Okay cool, that works.

    Thanks, Silver Wings!

    I hope you included a Bolt Pistol for the Librarian and consider Frag Grenades for him.

    Appart from that, I like the list it has good Assault and Ranged elements, without knowing anything of the force composition you will be opposed by I can't say much more, you're anything but a newbie Adrian.

    This guys needs a bike, or a jump pack. Sending both those squads to meet the chaos army is suidice without the protection of your librarain.

    Id consider reducing the Iron halo to a combat shield. Personaly, id give the librarain a bike - but thats a lot more expensive.

    Id also reduce him buy one wound.

    You cant go head to head with a demon prince and this guy anyway, no reason to buff him half way.

    Ravenwing Bike Squad (3)
    2x Flamers
    132pts
    Flamers arent very useful against MEQs. Id use meltas, youll probably kill more. Melta bombs are illegal on DA bikes - it looks like you removed them, but i thought id just clarify.

    Tactical Squad (6)
    Lascannon
    Plasma Gun
    115pts

    Tactical Squad (6)
    Lascannon
    Plasma Gun
    115pts
    Solid, but i dont see him taking many 2+ save units, unless hes sneaky and pulls out an obliterator. (But, that wouldnt really be a good choice, almost 10% of his points on a dude with basically 1 lascannon shot a turn is not worth it.)

    so consider MLs to save on points.

    Hes unlikely to field heavy tanks, if he takes a preditor, youll have the bike mounted melta guns to bring them down.

    Assault Squad (eight)
    Veteran Sergeant
    Powerfist
    2x Plasma Pistols
    206pts
    These cost 216, otherwise solid.

    With the changes above, your list would come to 748, maybe give the lib an auspex.

    nice list, but i personaly wouldnt take a librarian in 750 pts, instead, id go with a chappy with jump-pack, chappy special rules with a whole assault squad hurts. It would also free some points up, possibly add another couple marines here and there.

    2 Meltas will kill 1.11 MEQ's per turn on average, but if the 2 Flamers can cover 6 MEQ's between them they'll get 1.00 kills. Add in any cover at all and the Flamers do better.
