Hey guys, I've tried to make a list for a quick 1k points army of space marines. I considered iron hands since many of my friends played tau and I needed survivability, but I figured that I might be able to outshoot them via the use of our glorious cheese colored cheese marines.
My opponents use a lot of infantry, with XV88 Broadsides being an average appearance on the field. In large combined games, the largest opponent I often find are a carnifex and KV128 stormsurge, which is what motivated me to bring grav guns. Heavy infantry like Crisis suits, or similar medium range vehicles are often left on the sideline.
Sternguard and Tac
squads were given grav-guns in hopes of them being able to deal with any of the heavily armored threats I would run into, and give versatility of the list, not making me worry about making changes based on what I'm fighting. Heavy and special units were also given grav guns, as I seem to encounter lots of 2+ and 3+ armor saves.
I'm a big fan of infantry armies, and I have considered deepstriking units like terminators before, but couldn't find space for them in a 1k point list. In total, the current list is exactly 1k, if there are any obvious upgrades I missed that wouldn't have a real downside, just slide it into the comments. Please let me know what you guys would change or think would be some easy ways to expand this list into higher point values, thanks.
