In my local game area I face quite a few gunline type tau/guard armies so i have decided to go for a fast but solid army.

so, without further ado,

150


Elite

Sanguinary Priest w/ jump pack & power sword
90

Sanguinary Priest w/ jump pack & power sword

9 Marines w/ 2 meltaguns
1 sergeant w/ power fist

Get the powerfist off your captain! Tsk! He has a high initiative, use it! Give him twin lightning claws if you're okay dropping a power sword off of one of your priests, or lightning claw/storm shield to keep the points the same.

Should do okay, though, besides that.

ooh, good point. I was thinking, the dread is sort of redundant in this army imo given all of the enemy heavy fire will be directed at it so it will not last long. What other options do you think i could fit in given i would have 200 points spare then?


also, just did some mathhammer, it takes over 300 bolter shots to kill everyone ;D

300 shots
200 hit
100 wound
30 failed armor saves
15 failed FNP



EDIT; altered list

HQ

Reclusiarch w/jump pack
155


Elite

Sanguinary Priest w/ jump pack & power sword
90

Sanguinary Priest w/ jump pack & power sword
90

Sanguinary Guard
200


Troops
Assault Squad 1
9 Marines w/ 2 meltaguns
1 sergeant w/ power fist
235

Assault Squad 2
9 Marines w/ 2 meltaguns
1 sergeant w/ power fist
235

The sang. guard are another quality unit to further divide plasma/melta fire. Also, tres dangerous if ignored

5 points over

also, quick question, do the assault marines lose descent of angels if the captain and priests join them?

No, they do not lose descent of angels so long as everything has jump packs, as it's the jump packs themselves which grant descent of angels.

The sanguinary guard are fairly expensive, but they've proven very useful to me. You're right in that a lone dread will probably just die, might as well go all jump packs (woohoo!).

There aren't too many other things you can throw in for 200 points and maintain the theme. You could throw in a squad of vanguard, but they're basically doing the exact same job as the sanguinary guard, so it's up to you. If you did do vanguard, I'd probably give them a power fist and a couple of meltabombs on top of the jump packs. Either unit should do fine, though.

henbobbleb : Yea if you look under the jetpack entry in the wargear section, it specifies that the holy jetpack makes you an angel, that can descend.
