Default 1500 pts Marine

Hi All,

Just wanted your thoughts on my list below. I am seeking your thoughts on both competitiveness and composition scoring. The Tourney is 1500pts. There is no information on missions and therefore I assume it could be Alpha to Omega with all levels available. As for my style of play I've tried a 10 man Assault squad and it does suit my style of play. More of a cautious player who creeps forward. My Chapter is my own. They are based around a Forgeworld, that is they recruit from such a location.

HQ + Command Squad
Librarian with Fury of Ancients, 6 marines with 2 missile launchers

10 marines, Vet SGT with Thunder Hammer, Plasma gun

10 marines, Vet SGT with Powerfist, Plasma Gun, Heavy Bolter

10 Marines, Vet SGT with Powerfist, Plasma Gun, Heavy Bolter

10 Marines, Plasma Gun, Lascannon

10 Marines, Plasma Gun, Lascannon

Predator Annihilator with Heavy Bolter Sponsons

Predator Destructor with Heavy Bolter sponsons

Vindicator

HQ - 15%
Troops - 60%
Heavy - 24%

56 models
3 vehicles

All up thus far the list is approx 1485pts

Well, I think it really belongs in the Space Marine army lists board doesn't it?

Can somebody move this? :

Taking a quick glance over your list there are no glaring errors that stand out to me (except for your miscalculation in terms of total points), but I think there's a lot of potential to trim squads and harvest sufficient points to add something else. Let's see if we can't do that:


[hr]

Elites 1
Spending points:
  • Add a Dreadnought to your army...you've got plenty of tanks to soak up the AT fire so you can get away with it.
  • If you want to use it in a fire support role, replace the DCCW with a Missile Launcher. If you plan to have it wade into the enemy with 1st, 2nd and 3rd tactical then bolt on a Flamer (although with the latter option you would be wise to find another 4 points from somewhere to buy extra armour).
-115 pts

[hr]

Troops 1
Saving points:
  • Drop two Marines from this squad.
  • Drop the plasma gun (or put it down gently...they are such delicate and volitile things).
  • Bin the Thunder Hammer for sure! They look cool and they've got some great special rules, but you can get a Power Fist for half the price! Thunder Hammers should be reserved for characters, for whom a Power Fist is only 5 points cheaper.
Spending points:
  • Give the sergeant a Power Fist in place of his hammer.
  • Given the 'assaulty' nature of this squad, I think a Flamer would be a better choice than a Plasma Gun.
+49 pts

Troops 2
Saving points:
  • Drop two Marines from this squad too.
  • Drop the Heavy Bolter too - The Power Fist suggests a close quarters unit and a heavy weapon will either hold you up or never get fired.
Spending points:
  • Add a Meltagun to complement the projected deployment of this unit (ie. up close).
+25 pts

Troops 3
Saving points:
  • *AS TROOPS 2*
Spending points:
  • *AS TROOPS 2*
+25 pts

Troops 4
Saving points:
  • Drop a couple Marines here.
+30 pts

Troops 5
Saving points:
  • *AS TROOPS 4*
+30 pts

[hr]

[size=18pt]Original army list total: 1543[/size]
[size=18pt]Total surplus points: -33[/size]

[size=18pt]Total adjustment: +44[/size]

[size=18pt]Army list total after modifications: 1499[/size]
[size=18pt]Surplus points after modifications: +1[/size]
