Ok, so I picked up my Codex: DA yesterday and spent most of my lunch hour reading. Today on lunch, I decided to try and develop a rudimentary shoot DA list in the 1500 point range. Now as some of you may have noticed, my lists have a lot of miniatures which makes things a little different given the larger point cost for Dark Angels.
Here is a 1500 list that gives a lot of plasma goodness to vaporize the vile enemies of the Emperor.
HQ (240)- Master with storm bolter, Command Squad with 2 plasma guns
Tac 1 (180)- 10 Marines with Plasma Cannon
Tac 2 (180) - 10 Marines with Plasma Cannon
Tac 3 (180) - 10 Marines with Plasma Cannon
Tac 4 (180) - 10 Marines with Plasma Cannon
Dev 1 (265) - 10 Marines with 4 Plasma Cannons
Dev 2 (265) - 10 Marines with 4 Plasma Cannons
Total 1490 Points
66 Total Marines
1 Storm Bolter
2 Plasma Guns
12 Plasma Cannons
When in doubt call in an ordnance strike.
so what do you do against tanks??? if you come up against a leman russ or a Land raider this army is gonna be in trouble, those Plasma's will bounce off and do nothing but bubble the paint.
maybe give the devvies Missile launchers at least
all that plasma.. maybe split the squads into combat groups and chuck in a mlta gun? i know that means removing some men and stuff, but stella has got a point.
Ok fellows we have a difficult task, so we have to be more deadly than everyday.
Make mistakes and confuse the enemy - The Doctor
Tactics are nice but it is violence that wins the day.
give your master a combi plasma and a plasma pistol ?
