Default Re: 1700 p Assualt Marine list.

Well, i tried to redo this army as an blood angels army and since they already have "furious charge" and a fairly cheap death company i got lots of point over. So i bought two dreadnaughts as well.
I will try this army in a pretty big tournament in april and I hope they can do some damage.
All thoughts of improvement are appriciated.

HQ
Master of sanctity - Jump pack, Terminator Honours, Frag grenades, death company
247 p

Captain - Jump pack, Terminator Honours, Frag grenades
112 p

Troops
Tactical Squad - 6 marines, Lascannon
105 p

Scout Squad - 9 scouts with bolt pistol and cc-weapon + Veteran sergeant with power fist.
158 p

Fast Attack
Assault Squad - 7 marines + Veteran sergeant with power fist, 2 plasma pistols
216 p

Assault Squad - 7 marines + Veteran sergeant with power fist, 2 plasma pistols
216 p

Assault Squad - 7 marines + Veteran sergeant with power fist, 2 plasma pistols
216 p

Elites
'Furioso' Dreadnought - Heavy Flamer, extra armour, drop pod
160 p

Heavy Support
Predator 'Annihilator' - 2 spons lascannon
145 p

Vindicator Assault tank
125 p

1700 p

Personally i don't do odd numbered squads. Lose four from a squad of seven you're not a scoring unit, lose four from a squad of eight and you are a scoring unit. Same goes for the five man squads. I'd make them six man.

Again this is my opinion but i know a lot of people adopt this tactic and it works for me!

Good luck with your list!

I have 7 marines + one sergeant in the assault squads so that makes it 8.
The problem is that death company is also build from these squads so i want to have enough marines left in the assault squads if some of them is added to the death company.

Oh yeah, sorry. Didn't notice that. Not really a lot you can do about the whole death company thing, i'd still try and up the tac squads though. It looks like you've taken these two squads just because they're compulsory. If this is the case i'd take close combat scouts instead perhaps.

Don't get me wrong i like the list, but i just don't like five man squads, and if i do take them they're always a couple of scout squads just to infiltrate and hold up the enemy until the experts get there.

Thanks for your advices bluenose.
I tried something new now.
I removed the dreadnought with lascannon and one of the tactical squads and added one cc-oriented scout squad. I also added one marine to the tactical squad for the reason mentioned above even if they are just tankhunters in the back. I also added some extra attacks to my hq.
The army will be fun to play with at least since it so fast even if it turns out it lack too much fire power.
(im sorry if my posts are not correctly spelled everywhere but english is not my main language).

Hey don't just take my advice. Remember it's your list!

I do think you'll benefit from the scouts though, blood angels are close combat monsters and if the scouts can hold up the enemy for a turn or two until your assault squads get there you're gonna cause some carnage!

Your list looks really mean now! If you can close the gap quickly (the scouts will help) and tie up the enemy straight away you'll slaughter them! Scouts can be pretty handy as well, 30 plus attacks on the charge with the vet serg in there is gonna do some damage!

Good luck with your list and let us know how you get on with it

I like this list more then the other one anyway and i also believe that the scouts will do more for my army then a twin link lascannon.
