Default Basic marine 500pt,750pt and 1000pt army lists

I know that 500pts is hard for some armys to manage but i still think its a great starting point for new players because they can learn to play without the restrictions that Combat Patrol has. So i have devised a basic list as a guide to marine players who are just starting out. i hope this helps.


HQ
-captain with power sword and bolt pistol* * ** 76pts

Elites
-dreadnaught* * ** 105pts

Troops
-6 scouts with snipers and 1 heavy bolter* * * 95pts
-6 marines with bolters and 1 missle launcher* * 100pts
-6 marines with bolters and 1 plasma gun* * * * * 100pts

total: 494pts

this army i think would be a great starting point for people new to marines and i hope you think so as well**



Now........ if you want to expand this army as you almost certainly will, i will now give you some basic armys for the 750pts and 1000pts levels. (im not doing a 1500pts one but if you want to see it look in stams comp and my army list is there......... also please put in your entrys for the competition to)


750 pts

HQ
-captain with power sword and bolt pistol* * * 76pts

Elites
-dreadnaught* * * 105pts

Troops
-6 scouts with snipers and 1 heavy bolter* * * 95pts
-6 marines with bolters and 1 missle launcher* * 100pts
-6 marines with bolters and 1 plasma gun* * * * * 100pts

Fast Attack
-5 assault marines with 2 plasma pistols and a vet serg with a power sword* * * * 145pts

Heavy Support
-preadator destructor with heavy bolter sponsons* * * 110pts


total: 749pts


1000pts


HQ
-master with power sword and plasma pistol* * * 105pts

Elites
-dreadnaught* * * 105pts
-techmarine* * * * * 65pts

Troops
-6 scouts with snipers and 1 heavy bolter* * * 95pts
-8 marines with bolters 1 plasma gun and 1 missle launcher* * 140pts
-8 marines with bolters 1 plasma gun and 1 heavy bolter* * * * * 135pts

Fast Attack
-5 assault marines with 2 plasma pistols and a vet serg with a power sword* * * * 145pts
-landspeeder with assault cannon* * * * 80pts

Heavy Support
-preadator destructor with heavy bolter sponsons* * * 110pts


total: 999pts


so for any new marine players out there here is a basic list that is well rounded and pretty good to

(i only included a tech marine cause i like the model, but it is also a very good one to. stick it behind your dread so it can fix it if it gets imobilized or weapon destroyed)

Personally, I'd turn the Master into a Captain, or at least give him a Bolt Pistol for the extra Attack. Swap the Scouts' ML for a Heavy Bolter, as both it and Sniper Rifles are anti-infantry weapons.

i've changed the m launcher to a heavy bolter and given the commander a BP. i was thinking......................(always a bad idea) should i do some more of these like a 750pt one and a 1000pt one?

Sure if you think it will help new players build lists then go for it. I would suggest you do like a typical space marine army at different point levels. However for future lists a master isn't always the best thing to take in small games.

I really disagree with taking a master in a game this small.

I'd either go for a shooty captain or a Chaplain reclusicarch. For 86 points he's better than the current master setup, makes one squad fearless but doesn't pass his LD to the whole army.

With the points that frees up I'd throw one more scout into the scout squad.
