Default 2000pt's with 30 terminators

I've played tyranids for years but I recently got the 5 terminators out of a friends assult on black reach box and realised... I love terminators

So I plan on getting my hands on another 25 termies from a guy who bought some black reach boxes for the orcs to make this themed list;

1 Chapter Master 165pts
Terminator Armour

5 Honour Gaurd 185pts

5 Scouts 100pts
Heavy bolter, power weapon

5 Scouts 100pts
Heavy bolter, power weapon

5 Scouts 100pts
Heavy bolter, power weapon

10 Terminators 460pts
2 assult cannons

10 Terminators 460pts
2 missile thingys

10 Assult Terminators 400pts

1970pts

So what do you think? (and how do I spend 30pts)

Hail, fellow Tyranid player!

I'm no space marines expert, but I believe there are rules for fielding all terminator army lists in the Dark Angels codex--though it isn't 5th edition.

You may want to look at some Deathwing posts and take a look at that codex if that sounds like something you want to do.

Don't bother with Deathwing, you are going to want many 'nilla marine storm shields, Trust me, too many Deathwing players are furious at 5th edition than anything else.

But DA can put more Termies in, as they can use them as troop choices.

I had orginaly said give him some sort of power weapon. Didn't realise giving him terminator armour gave him that so I though you had a guy in term armour with just a ccw and bp.

That is a sweet army. I would use the 30 points to give one of the scouts a teleport homer, then charge into a powerful enemy unit with scouts, and at last minute, assult termies show up ;D

Your list looks good mate, but here is a couple of things for You to consider:

- How is your Honor Guard unit gonna get to the opponent? Drop Pod would appear handy here I believe.
- Are the Assault Termies really the best choice here? If I were your opponent I would concentrate all the fire on regular termies, considering that it is not possible anyway to stop 4 termie teams. Go all regular termies (Yeah, I know the assault ones look cool, I like them as well, just saying from the competitive point of view )
- Scout teams are 300 points with no real punch. Are you sure that you need so many of them?
- Aren't you a bit short on anti-tank firepower? Chasing vehicles with your power-fist equipped terminators gonna be a nightmare :P

Anyway, good luck

PS : If you want to be absolutely sure that you gonna win than just obey these words: "The warrior who acts out of honour cannot fail. His duty is honour itself. Even his death - if it is honourable - is a reward and can be no failure, for it has come through duty." And let others talk about victory points We know better
