Default 250 pt armies

If you had to field an army of only 250 pts what would you use? I'm looking for answers for each of the different factions. And ignore any force organization rules, such as required 1 HQ and 2 Troops. It's for a league I am starting. I need them for defense forces of neutral planets.

Are you planning on running a 250 point game or something? I'm just curious as to why you asked?

But for Space Marines...considering i haven't given it much thought..there's only one possibility. The cheapest HQ is 100, and 2 troops (scouts) cost 150 points, total 250 points.

I guess I would take something like...


Librarian with gate of infinity and avenger


5 Scout with 5 sniper rifles 75
5 Scouts with 5 shotguns - 75

16 Ork Lootas?
16-48 Autocannon shots FTW!

14 outflanking Genestealers with TS?

10 Imperial Guard Veterans with 3 Meltaguns in a Chimera plus 9 Ratlings?
or
Leman Russ Demolisher with HB's plus Marbo?

6 TH/SS Terminators?

Sanguinary Guard?

25 Fire Warriors?


There are so many broken builds you could make with no FOC limits in such low points.

lol, ok, I'm looking for what might be a "typical" defense group. I don't want a "kill anything" list. I should have been more specific. I'm sorry. I need small armies to act as forces that need to be conquered on non player territories.

I really like the nids one or the 25 fire warriors. More along those kind of lines.
