Hi y'all im new and i was wondering if you could give me some marine tactics i generally collect Dark eldar and im not sed to my army prodding along like snails..
Cheers y'all. :p
for speed theres the land speeders, thats dark eldarly right there for you....
as for tactics for space marines: think taking a stroll. DE need high speed because their weaponry and armour are semi-low grade by wh40k standards. There are the exception but for the greater part DE dont have armour saves to talk about, and weapons to feel overly proud of (atleast none that live long anyways)
Meanwhile spacers can load up on every weapon available, including plasma weapons. Why plasma? becaus ethey get their armour save, an average armour 3+ is slightly insane! You almost never lose a man to plasma! Also, think about waeponry from other races...theres not that much that gets through armour 3+ or worse yet, termies with 2+/5+...
Long range combat with destroyer squads in the back, assult squads on the flanks for speedy entry to the enemies long range weaponry with lascannons or plasma weaponry and lets not forget the evilness of dreads with missle launchers and plasma cannons for anit infantry! When your terminators get into melee they are neigh unstoppable destroyers of anyhting resembling life and after all that you still get cheap units! 15 a man for 3+ armour saves and 4ws 4bs ? ouch! Every man is a small ig squad for gods sakes! Just dont try to swarm with these guys off the bat, it can be done but get used to how tough they are and how they perform before you try it!
Yes they plod, but why would they need to move?
I play tau and GK...so I cant claim perfect understanding of space marines but thats my view on them, super equipped hard to kill buggers with the ability to adapt to any situation given the right equipment.

Welcome to LO, I hope that you'll have a nice stay and as been posted previous, have a look at the space marine board, there's alot of players that could answer your question there.
everyone thanks for your help and welcoming
i suppose marines dont have to move but collecting 4k of d-eldar kinda messes your head up ^_^
meh anyway if you want to see my new army list i think its in the marine forum
I really can't think of anything witty to say.
Welcome to LO, you'll surely enjoy your stay here!
"Do you want your heretic rare, medium or well done, Lord Inquisitor?"
Indeed welcome. Don't forget to come over to the DE forum too!
I'd just like to briefly shake my fist at Harye, Dark Eldar weapons are great, point for point they are certainly better than the rubbish marines tote around. Las cannon? Er no, I'll take 2 lances for the same cost please. Heavy bolters? How about a pair of splinter cannons? Powerfist, pah, agoniser OR punisher.
OK rant off and back to welcoming you. You may have noticed I'm rather a de fan so I won't be much use ing iveing you marine tactics, but if you want to discuss the dark kin then I'll talk your ear off.
Welome to the Librarium Online. I hope you enjoy yourself on the forum, and I hope we enjoy you too.
DO please read the rules, they are mainly common sense and courtesy anyway, you will find a link on my sig.
Any problems, ask a Mod.
Best regards and well done for introducing yourself, Aun.

Welcome Cortana to LO! I look forward to viewing your post in the near future.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
Hi Cortana welcome to LO.I cant really give you any tactics on Dark Eldar becuase it dont collect them but my advice is go to the Dark Eldar forum and ask there.
Look forward to seeing you round the forums.
