Default My own Specials


I'm creating my own chapter, called the Howling Falcons.
For my chapter I've created my own special squad
I need some feedback here:

Extremist Squad
Sarge+4 extremists
Extremist Sergeant: pts:50 WS 5,BS 5, S 5, T 5, W 1, I 5, A 2, Ld 8, Sv 3+
Extremist Trooper: pts:45 WS 5, BS 4, S 4, T 5, W 1, I 5, A 1, Ld 8, Sv 3+

Weapons: Eviscerators, frag grenades

Options: Sarge may take T-honours at +10 pts, but cant take weapons from armory.
Transport: MUST take drop pod at 30 pts.
Only 1 squad is allowed in your army.

My opinion is that they are way overpowered, so the are to cheap. What do you think??

Ok here comes fluf:
Marines with a specialty for close combat are put in Assault Squads, but even in Assault Squads you still have Marines that excell in close combat. These are put (with the Howling Falcons only) in Extremist squads, witch are the only Marines with Eviscerators.

In memory of KJ, i know he's playing some games of 40k with The Emperor!! Seriously!!

I meant, where is the fluff to justify those statistics. Also, this should be under House rules I think.

Well, let's see... no.

There's no possible justification for the bolstered Strength and Toughness, nor realy Balistic Skill or Initiative. Frag Grenades are useless when you hit at I1 anyway.

I suggest that keeping the marine standard Ws Bs and Initiative (4s)
as the differing weaponry are a large Anougth statement.
house rules may make them more (paletable) table top worthey for your opponents.


and perhaps smothering them in the finest space marine robes would make them a very fine 0 to 1 chaplain comand squad.


Hope this helps

Regards Absol...................

Where can i get formatting tables?? If you have them, please send a copy by mail

Yes, this is for Space Marines

The fluff:

They are the most deadly CC units you will ever see, because they are special cc dedicated and they are 1st company only, so veterans. Veterans, with Eviscerators!!

I won't bother to go over again why these are wrong. Nova has done it for me.

Formatting tables should be found in a stick under house rules, so it is neater.
Lets not bother with details. Marine CC specialists are assault marines.

hmm... perhaps "marines repentia" marines who are attempting to atone for some perceived slight against the emperor... with a 4+ scout armor save? cus i don't think a marine can pull off the chainmail bikini look.
