    1000 Point Space Marine Army List

    Hi all,

    This is my first post and I am making it with a great deal of hope for feedback.

    I am usually a Tyranid player, however I have been converted, hence, please find a 1000 point Space Marine army list below which was generated in AOTE and exported in .txt format. I am looking for any feedback regarding this list. This army will be allied with a 1000 point Eldar force, and will be used to engage a 2000 point Ork army using the new codex (v4).

    I have been reliably informed that there will be many Orks in my opponents force, including Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, and so I have centred the force around suppressing the green skins, and, hopefully pinning them down. To that end, a Librarian with Fury of the Ancients and 2 Whirlwinds have been chosen!

    I am aware that this list is thin of the ground, and I know that if my line will be met it is "game over man". In order to try and address this issue, I have included flamers in both Tactical squads, on my Dreadnought and in my Terminator squad. The Librarian has also been given Fear of the Darkness which I am hopping will send the green skins running allowing me to shoot them in the back for a few turns!

    I am certainly willing to compromise by exchanging my Devastor squad for something else (Scouts with snipers?), my Dreadnought for something else (?) and my Terminator squad for something else (?). The rest of the army is pretty much in stone as I have started painting.

    Please let me know what you think, good or bad, stupid or brave,

    -Matthew

    Normally, I'd just edit out the copyrighted bit, but that's more than I care to tackle to be honest. It's Saturday and I'm about to start some yard work.

    Please read the LO rules and feel free to repost your edited list.

    Hey mate, before I go any further you should remove all those stats from your post - its a copyright infringement and against forum rules. You entries for units should look something like this:

    Using your terminators as an example

    Terminator Squad 230 points
    1 sergeant
    4 terminators - 1 heavy flamer, 1 assault cannon

    Those with a codex will know things like the stats already.

    Cheers buddy,
    Rich.

    hi

    well structered army, should do well if left unchanged but heres my ideas, lose the terminator squad like you said, and expanding the tactical marine squads there good enough against orks to ten a piece, with the remaing thiry points, i would then add 2 marines to the devastor squad because after you've lost a single causity you're losing heavy weapons, bad news, don't know why you wanted to swap the devs for scouts, apart from that love the army, i hope the eldar has lots of dire avegers cuase when they bladestrom they take out a whole lot of orks, as will them whirlwinds with there theres so many of them i cant miss gun, anyway there my suggestion, post the result if you decide on changes,

    I get a little nervous with big Tactical squads for a small game, as if they get engaged, they won't resurface for the rest of the game probably. And with only a few squads, that is it, he will just pile in! Also I really like Terminators. I think they will soak up a lot of fire, whilst dishing a lot out too. When the Orks get close I can always toast them with the Heavy Flamer.

    First of I was not thinking to have them infiltrate, unless it would distract the main attack. I was thinking of deploying the Scouts as a mini-Devastator squad.

    I was also thinking that the extra pinning weapons would be another way to keep those Orksies from getting to my line. Possibly I could get 2, 5 man Scout squads for the same price as the Devastators, with a heavy weapon in each (Missile Launcher) as well as a few Sniper Rifles.

    Having another 2 pinning units would really make my opponents face go green! I would only be losing the Heavy Bolters really (in terms of heavy weapons) but I would gain more men, more Bolters and Sniper Rifles!

    I really like your suggestion, if I were to have the 2 Scout squads I would add to the Devastators, though, I always think I won't be the one getting shot at, then I get surprised.

    My team mate will have a squad of 10 Dire Avengers and with the Farseer casting Doom, combined with the Blade Storm, things can get a bit messy!

    Thanks again for all your comments 8Y, I will let you know the army I eventually go with and I will take all of your comments on board.

    -Matthew

    hi

    i see why you want the scouts now i like your ideas there, why not lose the tactical squads then and put in the scouts your ideas for them could help a lot, the reason i suggested losing the terms is that if they go down you'll lose a lot of points, with big tact squads you get a lot of bolter shots which really punish orks, but i use terms a lot myself anyway, to summerise these comments i like the idea of having scouts so mabye lose the tacts in a direct swap, although you lose the chance of some toasting with flamers you gain the chance to pin, jsut a few more suggestions,

    I have already started painting the Tactical squads, so unfortunately they are in. I agree though it would be nice to have both the Devastators and the Scouts. Notice I have reduced the size of one Tactical squad from 6 to 5.

    Here is the Scout version of the army list, with the Scouts in place of the Devastators.

    hi

    Still not sure about the scouts, I reconm perfer the first list, with the devastotors, it would give you more bodies though, see what your team mate thinks, don't think they've got loads of chance of pinning more then units but orks with ld 7 mabye,

    Gilli,

    P.S let me know if you win perhaps set up a battle report in that section, would be intrsted in the outcome, and after all that delibaraion i think you should stick with original list

    Good idea, I will see what I can do, I will take some pics too.

    I have loads of terrain that I have made that I wouldn't mind taking pics of and uploading too.

    Thanks again for all of your comments,
