Welcome to Librarium Online!
so tommorrow I am facing shrike in a space marine close combat powergamer list, and he will be taking no less than
marnues calgar + lightning claw terminators
shike possibly sectarius instead of one of the two
land raider redeemer
dreaadnought w/ power claw twin linked las cannon
two tactical sqauds
6 man jet pack assualt squad with various power weapons
and possibly a vindicator instead of something
the points list is going to be about 1500-1750 and I reallly really want to beat this guy
I basically have access to everything except pariahs and the deiever
oh, and I am to be defending on a planetary empires campaign
Not really sure of what to take
I am certainly going to take some H. D and quite a few warriors, I am tempted to take two lors because last time he used calgars special ability to s:10 ap1 ordanance my guys first turn and kill my lord because he wasnt a destroyer and no phase shifter so instant death >.< annnnd he failed his wbb
last time I misdeployed my army sp my lord was out of place, and my ctan was at the back, but if I field the ctan I know I can handle calgar as last time he charged and killed off 4 of them. also, I know hes going to outflank shrike to keep him out off harms way
I may have forgotten some stuff but pleaaasssseee help
Heavy destroyers will be a good start. Two squads of two might be warranted in this situation
Destroyer Lord w/ res orb, phase shifter, warscythe. if Calgar gets close, punish him.
Some tomb spyders can get you a long way against marines, if they die? you don't have to care, and on the charge they tend to take a couple marines with them (granted there are no relic blades...). And really, when those spyders hit, marines crumple like paper, it's wonderous.
C'tan....well he's got nothing that can REALLY rip up the NB *coughsternguardcough* so if you want that as your powerhouse counter, go for it. May really deter his assaults.
Other than that 30-40 warriors should do alright. make sure to not let yourself get charged.
Vanguard (assault power weapon dudes) = at least 250 points with only 3 power weapons
Shoot the Land Raider, and then out maneuver him. With almost half of his army in SIX models and a tank, that's one hell of a liability. Unless his assault squad have storm shields, you should be able to take them out as you would any normal marine (just do it quickly).
Is he going to give Calgar the terminator armor? And if you wanted to get risky, you could use wraiths to tie up his tanks (a lot of points to do that though) or try fielding Destroyers against the Assault squads.
