What now to do with my Vanilla Space Mariens at the 1500 point RTT?
For my troops right now I am using three razorback tactical squads (two normal one ally already mentioned).....and I know hwo I wrote an article about why I dislike vehicles let alone transports. Personally I do not like them but for the time being I need something familiar that I am use to running....but how long that will last I do not know.
Fast attack has myself taking two multi melta attack bikes. These got a huge boost since they cannot fall to instant death except from S10 weapons.
For elites I am still running a unit of 5 terminators, yet if they work with or without Shrike anymore I will see but at 1500 points he is too much of an investment without going all in. I am bringing back in my favorite TL lascannon dreadnought as well has heavy flamer/DCCW. Now up for debate is what to do with my sternguard. I normall run a 6 man squad in a pod with 3 combi meltas and two melta guns, as well as a deathwind launcher as well as a powerfist, or I can run them with the equivelent plasma gun loadout of three combi plasmas and 2 plasma guns. I do preach about how plasma is more useful than melta with more foot armies as well as more terminator armies. I am leaning more toward the plasma varient and am about to convert them in.
So all in all its more familiar and I think I can do something with it. More on what I would take later....
