Default Fun 2000pts new marines (First list)

Hey all, i just fancied making a list which sounds fun while effective, so here it is.

HQ
Pedro Kantor – 175

Captain- bike, power sword,–145

Troops

6 Bikers – Power fist, 1 Melta gun, 1 plasma gun – 215

6 Bikers – Power fist, 1 Melta gun, 1 plasma gun – 215

6 Bikers – Power fist, 1 Melta gun, 1 plasma gun, 1 attack bike– 255

6 Bikers – Power fist, 1 Melta gun, 1 plasma gun, 1 attack bike– 255

Elites

10 Stern-Guard veterans – Drop pod – 285

10 Stern-Guard veterans – Drop pod – 285

Heavy-

Whirlwind –85
Whirlwind –85

2000

The idea would be that Kantor would ride in a drop pod with a stern guards, they would then combat squad if nessercary. giving me 12 scoring units. My bike squads would also combat squad into anti tyank with eh sarg and melta and then the other squad would take the plasma and and in some cases the attack bike. Thus giving my army a very specific roll while being able to take on most commer lists

I know it is low on numbers, but hopefully my manouverability will see me through.

Wooow. This list is pretty small for a 2000pts army. I mean model count. Yes this list is very manouvarable but Im afraid it would get creamed but static gunline and dedicated combat armies. But yes this list would give people a run for their money. Id say drop a bike sqaud and put in a Tac sqaud of ten (heavy and special weapon in it) and sit it at in your area... You know as a defensive unit... Just my thought anyway.

I did think that, but then i was worried that it would be too vulnerable, with everything else being so mobile and being self sufficient i thought that it would be too much to worry about really.

But i shall try both ideas out on vassal, in theory they should work, but i don't really know.

Yes absolutely... If you try out this list and it works, then by all means use it. Its just in theory this list to me has some dilemma's to overcome. But yer try out vassal and see how you go.

This is the kind of list I'd play if I had the money to buy stuff, althought I'd go all bikes, but maneoverability is the word of the day and this list has it in spades. Just a side note though, your bike squads can't form combat squads until theyre at max unit strength (8+attack bike)
