I'll be playing against Space Marines soon, what are some tactics? Thank you. Any units that I should use against them?
Okay this doesnt work. Read what youve been told in just about every single one of these posts. WE NEED TO KNOW THE LIST!!!! There are litterally hundreds of different space marine builds out there and any one of them has different strengths and weaknesses. In fact theres 5 different space marine codexs out there, and each one of those has huge variety of possible lists. You are asking us to give advice when we have no idea what to expect!
To put it in real world terms imagine you want us to bake your dream birthday cake, but have only told us that you want it to be red. There are so many other things to consider that we will never manage to bake the cake as you want it (for example, the type of cake, how big the cake is ect ect)
Its the same in warhammer, your asking us to build something complex but only given us the minimum amount of details. It just doesnt work like that, we need to know the level of points your playing at, what list your opponent is taking and in this case, which type of space marines youll be fighting.

What I've found is that there is generally two methods that i find usefull. If they mech up then cracking the transport with Hive Guard, or any other of the number of units that can crack one, then charging with something like Genestealers or Hormoguants is a great idea.
I usually only get Mech lists in Space Marines (Of the two types I fight, Codex Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines) If they have deep striking units then just let them land and charge them with something scary.
This should be some thing basic for you. It works for me. Knowing your list or what your fighting would help with getting answers.
