Default A More Balanced Movie Marine

Hi, from what I've heard, Movie marines aren't that balanced...

So, I wanted/needed help on creating my own units, since I have not created house rules before and I would not have a grasp on what balance is.

Maybe:

[table][tr][td]Troop Type[/td][td]WS[/td][td]BS[/td][td]S[/td][td]T[/td][td]W[/td][td]I[/td][td]A[/td][td]Ld[/td][td]Sv[/td][/tr][tr][td]Movie Marine[/td][td]7[/td][td]7[/td][td]5[/td][td]5[/td][td]4[/td][td]5[/td][td]3[/td][td]10[/td][td]2+[/td][/tr][/table]

(Oh G-d that's probably horrible...)

Thnx!

Movie Marines are a list just to give you the rules of what the marines act in fluff. They do not need to be Balanced.

Agreed, trying to balance a list that has been deliberately unbalanced is not the best place to start.

Well...I meant, like 10 marines would equal one movie marine, and the points/stats would have to reflect that, type of balance.

Not the number of models in a 2k army, balance...

thnx!

In that case, it's already been done. It's called codex Space marines, where the points costs pretty much work out as 10 marines to one movie marine.
If I'm not understanding what you're on about, could we please have a clarification or two?
