Default Space Marines 1850 Singles League

Well, Team League fell through the floor. Several of the teams didn't show up... So, we're starting a singles league. 1850 points, I can change my army list. And I plan to take advantage of this; as this is a competition after all (10 USD entry, 45 USD for first, 25 USD for second, 10 USD for third). Opponents are Tyranids, Death Guard, Imperial Guard, Shooty Marines, and maybe Eldar. This first list will be used against IG, SMurfs, and Tau. I'll have a tyranid-killer and a more shooty-based list for Chaos.

I've decided to bring in Daemonhunters allies, as I've got a good anti-troop return from the lord and assassins can catch annoying fast units (Tau Commander springs to mind) and shiv them.

HQ
Master of Sanctity @137
. Bolt Pistol
. Frag Grenades
. Jump Pack
. Terminator Honours

Inquisitor Lord & Retinue @213
. Psycannon*
. Master Crafted (*)
3x Warriors (Gun-servitors)
. 2x Heavy Bolters
. Multi-melta
3x Sages
Acolyte
. Carapace Armour

Elite
Dreadnought @120
. Heavy Flamer
. Extra Armour
Drop Pod @30

Callidus Assassin @120

Troops
Tactical Squad @115
6x Space Marines
. Lascannon
. Plasma Gun

Tactical Squad @115
6x Space Marines
. Lascannon
. Plasma Gun

Tactical Squad @105
6x Space Marines
. Lascannon

Tactical Squad @95
6x Space Marines
. Heavy Bolter

Fast Attack
Assault Squad @206
7x Assault Marines
(1) Veteran Sergeant
. Power Fist

Assault Squad @144
6x Assault Marines
. 2x Flamers

Landspeeder Squadron
2x Landspeeders
. 2x Assault Cannons

Heavy Support
Devastator Squad @200
8x Space Marines
. 4x Missile Launchers


Chaplain accompanies the first assault squad, and the jumpers get in their and kick some teeth in. The Inquisitor Lord, speeders, and fourth tac squad go after infantry (with a podding dread in the mix). First-third tac squads go after tanks along with the dev squad, Inq Lord with the dread and speeders helping if necessary. Callidus shivs the HQ.

Rip it apart.

Well... Flood of responses. : Anyway, here's the list I'll be using against any Tyranids. The basic idea is to pump out as many shots as possible to wipe out the many genestealers, while having something to take down big gribblies as well, and then, if/when they get into close combat, be able to hold my own (which will be possible if they're sufficiently weakened).

This list uses the traits Trust Your Battle-brothers, Suffer not the Alien to Live (Tyranids), Flesh Over Steel, and Death Before Dishonour. True Grit and Counter Attack is represented by TYBB, and Preferred Enemy (Tyranids) as PE: Tyranids.

HQ
Epistolary @187
. Bolt Pistol
. Frag Grenades
. Master-crafted (FW)
. Terminator Honours
. Iron Halo
. Might of Heroes
. Fury of the Ancients
. PE: Tyranids

Epistolary @165
. Storm Shield
. Terminator Armour
. Might of Heroes
. Fury of the Ancients
. PE: Tyranids
Terminator Command Squad @204
4x Terminators
. 2x Assault Cannons
. 4x PE: Tyranids

Elite
Terminator Squad @286
6x Terminators
. 2x Assault Cannons
. 6x PE: Tyranids

Terminator Squad @286
6x Terminators
. 2x Assault Cannons
. 6x PE: Tyranids

Troops
Tactical Squad @187
8x Space Marines
. Heavy Bolter
Veteran Sergeant
. Power Fist
. 8x TYBB
. 8x PE: Tyranids

Tactical Squad @187
8x Space Marines
. Heavy Bolter
Veteran Sergeant
. Power Fist
. 8x TYBB
. 8x PE: Tyranids

Tactical Squad @187
8x Space Marines
. Heavy Bolter
Veteran Sergeant
. Power Fist
. 8x TYBB
. 8x PE: Tyranids

Fast Attack
Landspeeder Squadron @80
Landspeeder
. Assault Cannon

Landspeeder Squadron @80
Landspeeder
. Assault Cannon

Total: 1849

Tac squads make use of whatever cover available and target the little bugs. Terminators deploy on the line, advance into range and then fall back as the bugs close in. They target either big or little bugs. Landspeeders go forward and shoot the hell out of the little bugs, or try and rend the big bugs. The first Librarian holds the Tac lines, second the Termie lines. They try and get at big bugs as they reach the squads, to use their force weapons. They'll also use Might to help out against the little bugs.

Rip it apart.

Edit: Took Flesh Over Steel drawback instead of Eye to Eye in order to split the speeders.

Really good list versus Nids. The only thing i can pick apart on your list is twinning up your speeders. I'd split them apart to harrass a bit more. The only thing i'd probably want would be more trooops. If you find your HQ's aren't preforming well enough you could swap it for a tactical squad. That's all i got tight list.

Thanks for the compliments. For the speeders... I suppose I'll flip to Flesh Over Steel and split them up. I'll add that to my list.
