1500 vanilla marines
« on: July 23, 2012, 03:16:36 PM »
How would you run a competitive 1500 space marine list that has to include 3
units of stern guard?

I was thinking something like list 1:

Librarian, null zone, the avenger.
5 stern guard, 3 combi meltas, 2 combi plasmas, rhino.

6 stern guard, 3 combi meltas, 2 combi plasmas, rhino.

6 stern guard, 3 combi meltas, 2 combi plasmas, rhino.

10 tacticals, combi melta, melta, multi melta, rhino.

10 tacticals, combi melta, melta, multi melta, rhino.

Predator, lascannon sponsoons.

Predator, lascannon sponsoons.

Vindicator.

Or list 2:

Pedro kantor
3 honour guard, rhino.

6 stern guard, 3 combi meltas, 2 combi plasmas, rhino.

6 stern guard, 3 combi meltas, combi plasma, rhino.

10 tacticals, melta, multi melta, rhino.

10 tacticals, melta, multi melta, rhino.

predator, sponsoon lascannons.

Predator, sponsoon lascannons.

Vindicator

Thankyou in advance!


Heavy Support for both lists is something I'm not liking. ACLC Preds are best with BA as are Vindicators, even with new vehicle rules. A bit better than they were but their other options are still probably better.

The Pedro list has way more scoring power so I'd probably lean towards that list. Drop the Honor Guard, turn the Predators into Dakkas and drop the Vindicator. Add the 3rd Sternguard unit in.

I feel the best option is to then ally in Blood Angels.

BA can bring in another Sternguard unit (more scoring), a Libby (or Mephiston) for psy defense + utility and the fast Vindicator. Other points can go into Attack Bikes/Land Speeders for more mobile anti-tank (can be from Space Marines). Grab some ASM in Rhinos for Troops or a cheap Scout squad (likely the better answer in terms of point constraints).
