You're all over the place there CJ.

IMO you're not taking advantage of the numero uno BA advantage : Jump Infantry Troops

...and a LD10 Psychic Hood Mephiston Rolling Eyes

OK OK a bit more then...

One thing I learned playing last week is the value of a 50pt scoring Attack Bike. BAs can use those little buggers as well and you dont have to pay 15pts for the MultiMelta. I'd prefer these in a Fast Attack slot over a Speeder.

Tycho is probably the worst crutch of the lot. If you feel you need said crutch then go with both Lemartes and Mephiston, otherwise a single Jump Chaplain is minimal.

Dump the Scouts.

I prefer your Tacts at 5 Marines in a Rhino with a Flamer, otherwise go Assault Marines with Power Fist. Your current setup leaves your foot sloggers waaay behind and you will be picked apart.

Baals ...are balls. If you really really want armour then stick to the 130pt Annhilator.

Look again at the Veteran Assault Marine entry. Read slowly. ReRead.

Marc...you da man....i was toying with dumping the speeders and using bikes.....bikes rock.

Rhino's?? How about a Razorback if you are using 5 man?

Oh...let me mention...I'm only on page 2...lol

Tycho was just tossed in for fun...if he is that lame....he's outta here.

Scouts? Laughing No Sad ok.....

I'd rather use more troops anyway.....

The Death company with jet packs good? Followed by another 1 or 2 squads of Assult troops???

Baal's that bad? Nothing says fun like assult cannons....I do love an Anniahlator tho..

What abouta Vindicator?

I only like a Vindi if paired with a Whirlwind. More of a gunline tandem. Annhilators better for the counter assault style the BAs excell at.

Yes, Death Company with Jump Packs. You could get by with eight.

Did you read the Veteran Assault Marine entry yet Laughing

ok 1st off no devys...bad idea, 2nd off keep the 10 man squads and combat team them into 2 sets of 5, add razorbacks if nothing else they are a pain give them to the unit packing the speacial weapon so you can move them. 3rd yea always jump pack the death company, the vets are junk since they die to easy to much of anything for their point cost(no involne) also dont grab the liby unless you get mephistion since they dont have involon saves at all, and mephistion at least has feel no pain, and take a chaplin you will need to contolr the death company for them to be useful

they are not worth their points I can kill them in one turn with my blood angel set up and even if they close I can throw in a unit which is 10 times better than they are(death company), every time I have used them they have never come close to winnin g their points back, even if the live to make it into close combat

And only 10 memebers correct but Id rather have a tank or a 10 tact squad with plasma cannon/plasma combo(i think it might even be cheaper Id have to look it up)

no it will not it will only drift a little on average if at all, though rending will hurt a little, you will need some anti tanke either metla bombs somerwere or melta guns/lascanons

I guarantee I could shred Bruce with a heavy veteran assault marine list.

These guys are GOLD like Marc said.

Plus Moomey uses tons of them, what more do I need to say?

I'll be back with more later.

I disagree with that I have well over 30 jump pack carrying marines but do I use more than 7 noooooo for good reason they die to easy to tanks Twisted Evil even my list packs enough tanks to give a heavy vet list a good amount of problems, also the plasma is also good as it adds a nice template(cannon) and is ap 2 and cheaper than melta(the plasmagun is anyways) and can rapid fire at range 12
