I have a BA army and SW, what Im going to do is just use them as vanilla marines and use this codex time to time. With Space wolves I can see me using this formation, while I have my Termies in my land raider moving forward with thunder cav flanking. can you Imagine the carnage?! 2 pods right in your deployment, 2 5 man dev teams, then 20 assault marines charging you and holding you up while thunder cav rolls up on you with land raider in support. Marines are finally scary

the models I use for the formation as carmine blades and using ultra tactics and allying with my BA/FT as that seems the fluffiest way of doing it.

Why do you always make 2 posts one after another.

All I could think of when seeing this formation being available to the ever-favorite-smurf-marines was this:

Well if anyone is keeping score, I used this against a non-Dec Necron army at 1500pts and blew them away. Think I won something like 12-3 in tac obj points. Heavy losses on both sides but the hitting power it gives is frightening!!
