Hey hey.

Thanks for the feedback! Good to see I'm off to a good start.

If anyone else has any comments, I'd be more than happy to hear. This is my first space marine list under the new codex & edition, so I was hoping for some feedback.

just interested about why you gave him terminator amour, nothing inherently wrong with it but no-one else has termie armor and I don't see it much so I was jw what your reasoning is behind it or what role he will play in the army.

Have you gotten to play with this list yet? I was wondering how effective scouts are with the new 'dex since they had they're BS cut. I would like to field more units of them but I don't know if they are really effective.

the only thing that really stuck out was the devestator squad. i've never been a fan of mixed weapon squads. unless they have combat tactics then nevermind

Question about your list:

Did you really go buy $120+ of Sternguards and if not, you just using Assault Squads and is that Tournament legal?

I've always liked the Scythes of the Emperor, it's a shame there's hardly any left. When I was running a Damocles Crusade campaign @ my local store we had a few squads of them assisting the Imperial forces on Dal'yth Prime against the Tau. They were shown no mercy ;D

Honestly I'm not a fan of Scouts in the new book, until they release a Land Speeder Storm model. With the WS and BS cuts, they're really just not worth it. For 3 points more you get a Marine.
