ok

firs HQ

why chappy with JP?
in low cost go with libby

take the scouts to CC w/PF in the storm drop the HB (u want to charge and be mobile and HB wants u to stand still)

on pred i would go AC with las sponsons

On ur tac (in low point game) u could consider combat sqad them ML half stay at the home obj and other half go in Razorback
but ur setup is ok i think (might consider EA on Rhino for mobility)

well thats just me
have fun

I hate Libbys with a passion

As of now they chap only has the PF.

And with the scouts this army is set up for 500 points and seeing how it's one of the 3 sootiest weapons I needed to keep it. Plus when the scouts get on the objective it will help them keep it.

The pred I might go BA successor just so I can get Baal up in here

In the tac squad you mean split them in game?

ok
so maybe if u want shooty scouts go with SR?
in storm speeder they do not have to stay on the obj (u can late game contest it and push ur opponet away with a cc setup)
but as i think of it now i would put a HF on LS storm

combat sqad means that for the weapon choices the squad counts as one (10 man 2 HW) but in the game they count as separate sqads
u can still hav one dedicated transport (and why not a razorback with some havier weapon, maybe this would allow u to drop the HB form scouts)

With the combat squad you get the flamer and the RL standard, in the split unit I could send the sergeant and the flamer in a razorback with the chap and they would most def be a CC nightmare. This is just for the 500pts btw. As for the 500 I can't really upgrade the units beyond what I have up there, maybe if I drop the scouts PF?

Drop the PF on chappy he already has a PW and the srg has a PF
If u go with this

HQ

Chappy

Troop

Tac 10 man ML Flamer PF on sarge (Razorback TLHB)

Scouts combatblades PF, meltabombs (LS Storm HF)

ur on 500 spot on



u combat squad tacs srg flamer + chappy go in razorback
ML stays on home objective

Scouts eliminate enemy transports (or shooty units like lootas) used for late game contesting
btw if u have the first turn they get 44" charge
LS hf chase down the troops form poped transports

should work nice


what do you think?

for a weapon on a razorback
i would go for the TL plasma gun with lascannon on a razor-back
you get good meq killing stuff and 2 weapons for the price of 1

and i wil go with a blood angel successor chapter..
the razor back will become fast
field a assault marine in the razorbacks(who are troops with BA)
you get som dicount if you field assault marines and you can tie up the enemy with swords and pistols...
aslo the BA assault marine (now without JP) can aslo field 2 plasma guns or other stuff

go with BA:eek:k:

i do not have BA codex
but i might reconsider scout setup

u give them ccw and thats fine
than u put there HB (non-assault weapon) - no use cause they want to charge
meltabombs are fine but no PF?
and u do not get cover save in CC so why camo cloaks?
either go with CC or shooty i wouldn't recomend mixing both

i really like BA dreads though :D
have fun

so drop HB and CC saves 25 pts and then i can give the sarge PF. I cant wait for my dread tho. already gets 2(3)A at str 6 plus blood talons which could mean up to 3 aditional kill which then leads to 3 more attacks plus Might which is another D3 attacks soooo much ownage. And you know lance is for blowing out some heavy units before CC or wings makes it IMPOSSIBLE for him to not get to CC and the rage is just a hero killer. he sounds fun.

blood talons on a furioso librarian???
thats not possible...
sorry :p

cause you have to exchange all wargear to make him a librarian..

also don't use a land speeder storm in a Blood angel army..
thats the same thing a imperial guard players begin to use hammerheads

or eldar using defilers
:D

well here's the thing I could effectively give him 1 blood talon... It never said that you can't give him it AFTER you upgrade him to librarian. It just says you exchange it then hes a whole new unit, I love loopholes.

the IG using hammerheads is a bit of an exaggeration. The only difference between a reg and storm is the scout transportation.

and like I said about the landspeeder I can just use it as a regular land speeder it's just piloted by scouts :p and by this point I might as well drop the pred and just get another LS.
