Default The best HQ for 127 points.

That is my challenge.

You have to pack the most powerful command figure into 127 points, from a vanilla marine list.

It is only when you have to work with these limits that you truly start to figure out the cool combinations.

So I am guessing you people don't reckon the commander of the force should have a gun?

just off the top of my head (and i could just be thinking back to the bad old days of the 3rd ed codex), but i don't think that mini's in termie armour can have ccw's...they have to be given something like a power weapon IIRC

He's right, models in Terminator Armour must have some form of power weapon.

Captain w/ Artificer Armour, Adamantine Mantle, Power weapon, Bolt Pistol, Frag grenades. 127pts exactly.

So am I, and I would have given him a storm bolter but I didn't have enough points spare and with a bolt pistol he gets +1 attack.
