I was looking at some other forums the other day and noticed that we dont have a topic showing various lists at different points values. So i thought it would be good to start one - not for review but if you post the army that you use a lot that way some new players can have a look at sample armies for ideas ;)

So it would be nice if we could get some lists - perhaps 40k in 40mins lists, 500pts, 1000pts and 1500pts - others can be added. I'll add my own few ones in once I've answered some more of the topics here.

Any contributions would be great ^_^

++Edit+++

If we could put the title of the points in bold for easy referencing that would be great.

Just thought i'd post the categories that we want so far

40K in 40mins (400pts)
40k in a Flash (500pts)
500pts
1000pts
1500pts


(we can put more in but these are the general ones which new players aim for) ^_^

Might as well get the ball rolling.

+++40k in a Flash (500pts)+++

Tactical squad
-7 marines
-Flamer
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Rhino w/ smokes & extra armour =199

- 6 marines
- Heavy bolter = 95

- 7 Marines
- Missile
- Plasma gun = 125

Land speeder Tornado
- Heavy bolter
- Assault cannon =80

Total =499

This has also worked well. I hate my 6 man squad however I recently bought a land speeder after recovering from my fear of my first modelling mishap with it and have found it to perform amazingly

+++1000+++

This is one I have been using and yes they are in not in perfect even numbers such as 8 but that hasn't effected me yet - also I know the Librarians a bit much for such a low points value but i've been trying out a few new combos before I decide on buying more models ;) although so far I have recorded 5 wins 1 loss ^_^

+++HQ+++

Codicier
- Pistol
- Frags
- Jump pack
- Viel of time =132

+++Elites+++

Dreadnought
- Extra armour =110

+++Troops+++

7 marines
- Heavy bolter
- Plasma gun = 120

7 marines
- Missile
- Plasma gun =125

8 marines
- Flamer
- Veteran w/ power fist =156

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke & extra armour = 58

+++Fast Attack+++

Assault Squad
-8 Marines
- 2 plasma gun
- Vet w/ power fist = 216

Land speeder tornado
- heavy bolter
- Assault cannon =80

= 997

I have considered downgrading the HQ to a captain and buying more troops but though i'd post a list im having fun with and seems to function pretty good even although the assault marines die fast

Let's limit this to just Codex and trait-based marines for now. Wolves, BA, Chaos and so on all have their own forums for this thing, so lets keep it generalized. So keep it coming with the vanilla and DIY lists. :(

Some nice stuff so far guys, how about some 1000 point lists to help out the new members that are getting ready to expand on their 500 point lists? For a challenge take one of the 500 point lists given above and make a 1000 point list out of it. :P

Alright, I'll take a crack at a Vanilla list. :D

I'll take Loki's most recent 500 pt. list and make it 1000.

Here's the base list...

HQ

Captain
w/ bolt pistol
- power weapon
- Combat shield =86

Troops

Tactical squad
8marines
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Flamer = 156

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke and extra armour =58

7 Marines
- Heavy bolter
- Plasma gun = 120

Fast Attack

Landspeeder Typhoon = 80

The most important unit in an army is, of course, the Tactical Squad. As this list has two good squads, I'd expand those a little. The first thing I'd do is expand the first squad to 10 men. This will give the squad more firepower and strength. A CC squad should be powerful, not... bleh. That would make the list 530. Second thing is addind another marine to the second squad, making it 8. More viable. We're up to 545 now.

Another squad would be good, too. Something like the first one... That's 244 points. So, now we're at 789.

Now that we've got the basics down, some more fire power would be... excellent. A Predator Destructor w/ HB sponsons and HB sponsons would be 115 points, making the total 904 points.

Something that I've noticed is the lack of strength in FA. I'd add another Typhoon to make a squad of 2 or even two sqauds. This can help with table quarters and survivability.

Now that we're at 984 points, what should you do? You could make your Capt. a Master for an extra wound and Ld... Or you could give him Termi Honors. That is what I would do. This would make your total points 999... Which is pretty good.

That is what I would do and what I would suggest to someone. Hope this helps someone.


I hope Loki doesn't mind me using his list... :P

Alright, like I said earlier, I'm going to add more to a list. Here's the base list...

HQ

Captain
w/ bolt pistol
- power weapon
- Combat shield
- Termi Honors
- Frags =102

Troops

Tactical squad
10 marines
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Flamer = 186

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke and extra armour =58

Tactical squad
10 marines
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Flamer = 186

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke and extra armour =58

8 Marines
- Heavy bolter
- Plasma gun = 135

Fast Attack

Landspeeder Typhoon x2 = 160

Heavy Support

Predator Destructor
- HB Sponsons
- Ex. Armor = 115

Total: 1000 points (woohoo!)

Now that we've got good fire support and assault elements, we can expand on those two. First up, I think, is everyone's favorite walking sarcophogus... A Dreadnaught!

What to arm that badboy with, though?

I would consider making this a fire support Dread. The best weapons for this are a TLLC and ML. Oh, and Ex. Armor. Can't forget that. That makes this bad boy 140 points. 360 left.

To balance out this fire base, we need to add another assault unit. What better unit than... An Assault Squad!

Start off with an 8-strong unit, then add the goodies. Two PPs and a Vet w/ PF+BP. The total? 216 points. 144 left.

Now, something that hasn't got much attention is the HQ. Save him last, but make sure to keep him in mind. I'm going to keep the Captain, but a Chappy would be a good choice here. In fact, he'd be a dang good choice, but I'll get to that later.

The thing lacking from the Capt. is obviously mobility. The easiest way to remedy is a simple jump pack. This means that he can go with the Assault Squad. That adds another 20 points to the total. 124 points to play around with.

What's a good way to spend 124 points? You could either flesh out the existing Tac Squads... Or you could add yet another LS Typhoon! More survivability=good times.

That's another 80 points, so now we have only 44 points to spend. These last few are never fun.... But here is what I would do. Drop the Frags on the Capt, make him a Master, and add two more Marines to the last (firebase) Tac Squad. That is 45 points, so we're now EXACTLY at 1500 points!

Or you could add two more Assault Marines, keep the Capt. a Capt and keep the Frags... And STILL get 1500 points. I'd consider the second option myself. Get more minis and stuff on the board.

Tomorrow (or Friday, I don't know yet), I'll make this 1850 points!

I was thinking, with the release of the new terminators and remembering some old lists, that a 1000pts with terminators would be an idea. I dont recommened them in such a low points game but its an idea for fun or if you just have to. ^_^

+++1000pts+++

+++HQ+++

Chaplain
- Reclusiarch
- Bolt pistol =86

+++Elites+++

Terminators
- 8 Terminators
- 2 assault cannons =360

If you have termies you need a reasonably big squad...now you just need to shave points off elsewhere

+++Troops+++

Scouts
-8 marines
-all w/ bolters
- Heavy bolter =109

yes it may be weird using scouts with bolters but they take over the tatical shooting squad and are cheeper


Scouts
- 9 marines
- all w/ CCW's
- Veteran w/ power fist =145

Tactical squad
- 8 marines
- Missile launcher
- Plasma gun=140

+++Fast attack+++

Land Speeder Typhoon
- assault cannon = 80

Land Speeder Typhoon
- assault cannon = 80

Total = 1000

It may be a bit weird but to have terminators scouts are good as, although they are only a few points cheeper than marines, those extra points are handy

I was actually about to get to that... :tu:

Alright, it's time for Ecce's Build That List... Up now, I'm going to build up a list to 1850. Here's the base list..

HQ

Captain
w/ bolt pistol
- power weapon
- Combat shield
- Termi Honors
- Jump Pack
- Frags =122

Elites

Dreadnought
- TLLC, ML
- Ex. Armor = 140

Troops

Tactical squad
10 marines
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Flamer = 186

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke and extra armour =58

Tactical squad
10 marines
- Veteran w/ power fist
- Flamer = 186

Mounted in rhino w/ smoke and extra armour =58

8 Marines
- Heavy bolter
- Plasma gun = 135

Fast Attack

Landspeeder Typhoon x3 = 240

Assault Squad
- 7 BP/CCW
- 2 PP/CCW
- Veteran w/ power fist = 260

Heavy Support

Predator Destructor
- HB Sponsons
- Ex. Armor = 115

Total: 1500 points (woohoo for exactness!)

Alright, the key word in any army list I write is BALANCE. This is paramount; if you don't have a good balance of fire support and assault, then you should make it balanced.

In this list, we've got... 3 Assault, 3 Fire Support, 3/1 Table Capture, and your HQ, who accompanies the Assault Squad. So, this is a fairly balanced list. This is when you want to decide how you want to attack (or defend) your enemy. I'm going to make another balanced list... One must also take into account ability to take out armor, and that's what I'm going to do.

I'm going to add two Tac Squads...

The first is a 10 strong unit, with flamer, Vet w/ PF, and Rhino (EA, SL). 244 points.

The second is a 6 strong unit with LC. That's it. 105 points.

That brings the total up to 1849...

If you want to go shooty, I'd recommend a Dev Squad, 10 strong, with... Oh... 4 missile lauchers. Good, "cheap" multi-purpose weapon.

Assaulty... Another assault squad.

You could add a 7-strong Termi Squad with 2 Assault Cannons... :ph34r:

Next, I'll take it up to 2000, which will be my final installment. I may start another list from scratch... Make it a "themed" army. Keep in mind that I'm normally a DA player, so Vanilla really isn't my field.

Im not sure if this is what your wanting but. Normally if you start 40k marines you buy the codex and the standard 2 tactical squad boxes and the new commander. So thats you got the basis for an army and it includes (21 marines, 2 flamers, 2 missiles and loads of extra bits). Now I done some fiddling and i've managed to create a 500pts list out of using only the things in these 3 boxes

+++500pts+++

Traits - Cleanse and purify
- see but dont be seen

disadvantage -Flesh over steel

+++HQ+++

Captain
- Pistol
- frags
-power weapon
- Combat shield
- Terminator honours =102

+++Troops+++

Tactical squad
10marines
- Flamer
- Flamer (taken from the additional tacitcal squad)
- Veteran with power fist (use the power fist in the commanders box)

All with infiltrate =226

Tacitcal squad
10marines
- Missile launcher
- Plasma gun (just use the bolter-plasma from the commander box) =170

Total =498

Im not sure if this is what your after but this would allow you to field a basic army and do minor conversions so all in all a pretty good deal I think and it costs 50 (inc. Codex, 2 tactical squads, 1 commander box) :ph34r:

For another challenge I offer up creating an army list based around at least two SM box sets (battleforce, megaforce, etc.) I think that would be really good for showing beginners how to work with what you start with and how to expand. :ph34r:

I'll bite.

The two boxed sets are a good place to begin building your army. Buying both will give you:

- 30 Tac Marines, including 2 flamers, 2 missile launchers, and 2 Sarges
- 1 Razorback
- 1 Rhino
- 1 Dreadnought
- 1 Predator (heck yes!)
- 5 Assault Marines
- 1 Command Squad box (Apoth, Champ, Stan. Bearer, Sgt, PG gunner)

This is a GREAT place to start an army with. Where to go after buying these, though?

First, you need an HQ. Buy the Commander Box. Now you can make a list that validates composition rules, blah blah... (stupid Army Builder...)

Next, buy 5 more assault marines. A 5-man assault squad is simply suicide.

Alright, now you should have....

- 30 Tac Marines
- 1 Razorback
- 1 Rhino
- 1 Dreadnought
- 1 Predator
- 10 Assault Marines
- 1 Command Squad box
- 1 Commander

Let's make a quick list out of these, m'kay? I'll make... Oh... 1000 points.

-=HQ=-

Captain
- Storm Bolter, Lightning Claw
- Terminator Honors
- Purity Seals
- Combat Shield = 115

-=Elites=-

Dreadnought
- AC, DCCW
- Ex. Armor = 110

-=Troops=-

Tac Squad
- 8 Bolters
- 1 Flamer
- Vet w/ PF
- Rhino w/ SL, EA = 244

Tac Squad
- 4 Bolters
- 1 Missile Launcher
- Sgt w/ Bolter
- Razorback w/ HB, EA = 175

-=Fast Attack=-

Assault Squad
- 5 BP/CCW
- 2 PP/CCW
- Vet w/ PF = 216

-=Heavy Support=-

Predator Annihilator
- TLLC
- HB Sponsons
- Ex. Armor = 135

Total = 1000 (woohoo!)

Where to go from there? I'd flesh out your Tac Squads more. Add another...

I'd also think about a Dev. Squad.

From there, it's your army. Do what you please. :tu:

Consider the Predator. Let your soul be armoured with Faith, driven on the tracks of obidience which overcomes all obstacles, and armed with three great guns Zeal, Duty and Purity

Pain and death are ilisuions of the weak mind. While his gene-seed returnes to the Chapter, a Marine cannot die. Without death, pain loses t's relevance.

He that may fight, heal him.

He that may fight no more, give him peace.

He that is dead, take from him the Chapter's due.

40k in a flash (500 pts, no HQ)

tactical squad 1 (6):
4 bolters, 1 missile launcher, 1 plasma gun
110 pts

tactical squad 2 (6)
4 bolters, 1 heavy bolter, 1 plasma gun
105 pts

tactical squad 3 (6)
4 bolters, 1 missile launcher, 1 plasma gun
110 pts

assault squad (6)
vet sarge: boltpistol and powerfist
2x plasma pistol & CCW
3x boltpistol & ccw
- frag grenades
- jumppacks
172 pts

total pts: 497
modelcount: 24


what you need to buy:
- 2 tac squad boxes
- heavy bolter blister
- 1 assault squad box

what you need to fix from someone else: one single assault guy (should be possible, everyone aims for even numbers anyway, even numbers on squads are the holy grail), one additional plasma gun.

but you can make due by simply buying 2 assault boxes, at 1000 pts you want to have 8 or 10 men in that squad.

don't bother using rhino's, they suck, and are pretty expensive.
a whirlwind is a possibility, but the list I made was created with flexibility in mind, you have some assault capability and a solid firebase.


and lumpy: sorry to say so, but those lists are pretty... sucky... 6 men squad with either a heavy bolter, missile launcher or lascannon and a plasma gun is the winning combination, as a marine player, you should know better than simply minimizing your troops.

Well 6 man shooty squads aren't that much better than 5 man.

Anyway this is just for people to throw up some ideas on lists so that people can see what kind of armies they can deploy at various points and recieve inspiration. There are debates about size and composition but we dont want generic lists so some lists outside of the usual box (large No. of troops in a list, more heavy orientated, assaulty, unbalanced, crazy ;) ) are more than welcome here :P
