Default what next do I buy

I have to get alot of stuff to get my marine army going. I'm going for a mainly assault marine army with lots of fast stuff. Here's what i currently have:

HQ: Libraian, a marine captain and command squad
Eites: Terminator squad and Dreadnought
Troops: two tactical marine squads
Fast attack: Assault marines
Heavy support: none

I need a shopping list in order of priorty and also can you guys estimate how much this would cost, money wise.

Well, if your going for a mainly assualty army you still need some firepower. Keeping with the fast idea I'd suggest either landspeeders of attack-bikes. Attack bikes might be better becuase you could then see about some bike squads and attach them to the squad to back them up.

id go with 2 squads of scouts.

First one armed with heavy bolter and snipers and 6 man strong
Second one armed with a missile and 5 man strong

Gives you a nice little force that could easily hold against almost any enemy unit or light tank!

So bikes and speeders then. I like the idea but I still want some assault marines in the mix because I truly beleive a large assault marine based army will crush most enemies if you deepstrike too on afew squads plus they are cheaper than bikes. And if you use the chapter trait "blessed be the warriors" in the codex you can use them as elites too making six squads! Maby i could add a few bikes too into the mix.

Well, if you use Blessed be the warriors' you could also then use 'Be swift as the wind' for the bikes. That way you take the bikes as troops and the Assault marines can be used as fast attack and elites.

A Trait assault army or a Codex one?
What Triats?
Which Codex

A little more info please. Generally a Fast AND Assaulty Marine army means Assault Squads. But then you can have Landspeeders So Traits might be a good idea..

you should go assault trait army....you can fit up to 6 assault squads, 6 bike squadrons with attack bike detachments and you can have all your characters on a bike, wearing a jump pack or in a rihno....just make sure that the whole army can move 12" a turn....

Being a Salamanders player, I'd go for some devastators. The standard 4 missile launcher set-up seem to be the best "all around". You could use 4 heavy bolters against horde armies. If devastators are not your thing, maybe a Predator Annihilator or Vindicator. Either way, you can't go wrong with Heavy Support. Once you pick a heavy support choice, I'd get another tac squad or scout squad. The more marines you have on the table, the better. Hope this helps...

maybe you could go with a pair of Preds so they can go hunting together....you can kit them out so they are both the same or they could both be different like one with T-L lascannon and 2 side lascannons (for anti tank and any heavy infantry) and the other with the auto cannon and side heavy bolters to take down the troops.....or 1-2 squads of devastators mounted in Rihnos or Razorbacks so that they move as fast as the rest of the army and can get into a better position to fire from and they can also use the transport as a sheild
