One thought is your choice of HQ and squad he's running with. The chaplain isn't bad, but with a min assault squad with no upgrades means the entire group is going to be struggling to do much; even against Eldar.This set up seems better (except I still want to waste the points on a Stormtalon, haha). More bodies on the table and those bodies are very mobile. I might think about dropping some upgrades to try to get more assault troops. I don't know. Any more thoughts? Thanks for the help so far!
Why? At this point level if your opponent has enough points to make flyers useless than they have fewer points on models or other threats.I think I'm just too excited to get the Stormtalon on the table. I'm kind of assuming he won't bring any anti air but if he does its points wasted so I'm removing it for now.
Heres what I recommend:
5x Additional models, meltagun, veteran sergeant, power weapon
Camo cloaks, sniper rifles, missile launcher
2x Additional marines, jump packs, 2x flamers, veteran sergeant, power weapon
Gets you those bodies on the ground, all squads have the ability to take on different roles if need be, and everything works together.
Or if you really want to get that storm talon back in:
4x Additional marines, meltagun, power weapon
Camo cloak, heavy bolter
Skyhammer missile launcher
1x Additional biker, 2x flamers
2x Additional marines, jump packs, flamer, veteran sergeant, power weapon
A little over, but this gets you that storm talon. Sure it costs you the terminators, but with Eldar bladestorm that +2 save is probably not gonna be as useful as it would be against other armies.
In regards to the storm talon, skyhammer missiles and a twin linked assault cannon gives you seven shots a turn. Even if you end up having to jink that still means some of those shots will be hitting.
