Default My first army list needs a looking over please.

The Bringers of Death to the Enemies of the False Emperor are my first attempt at a space marine army list. I put them up in the army list bit of the website would enjoy any ideas on how too make it good.

I'm confuddled.

Thanks for the link .

First thing that sprung into my mind is how undedicated your first squad of Tactical Marines is. You have a Missile Launcher which would suggest that its going to be a heavy squad and pretty much immobile, but then you have a Power Sword which is for close combat. I would personally throw out one of them and use the points elsewhere.

Yea it is amazing when you put the topic in the right place and actually link to the army list people respond with more than blank stares.

The power sword is in that unit because people always seem too want to run over and beat on those guys in melee. The plasmagun is in there For fun mostly. I think the plan was too have that unit combat squad apart and have the power sword part of it as sort of a speed bump. Also I can use either the melee half the squad or the scouts too guard my librarian.

I guess I am just a heretic then because plasma gun just seems vague.

I don't think you can take two flamers in one tactical squad. You can only take one special weapon and one heavy IF the squad numbers ten models (which yours does), so you can take one flamer and then a heavy.

Do all your tactical squads need krak grenades? That is another question worth thinking about... try and fit each squad to a specific role, combat squads are not always the way forward.
Also only one of the tactical squads is mechanised, the rest will have to slog it on foot to objectives. I would consider dropping the second landspeeder in favour of a second rhino and put a storm bolter on it for some extra weight of fire (sure not as effective as a heavy bolter, but then it will get your marines into the fight quicker)

Marines are best within 12 inches of your opponent where you can make use of your rapid fire bolters.

The storm boys assault squad should have chainswords not combat blades.
