Hey everyone,

I am planning on just using this to play pick up games at my FLGS. I have not played a game of 40k in this edition, but I am hoping this list can give a game against most armies.

Battalion Detachment +5CP (Imperium - Space Marines)

HQ
Marneus Calgar [11 PL, 2CP, 200pts]
Selections: Warlord

Primaris Lieutenant [4 PL, 69pts]
Selections: Master-crafted auto bolt rifle

Troops
Intercessor Squad [5 PL, 101pts]
Selections: Bolt rifle
4x Intercessor
Intercessor Sergeant
Selections: Thunder hammer

Scout Squad [4 PL, 55pts]
Scout Sergeant
Selections: Bolt pistol, Boltgun
4x Scout w/Boltgun

Scout Squad [4 PL, 55pts]
Scout Sergeant
Selections: Bolt pistol, Boltgun
4x Scout w/Boltgun

Elites
Aggressor Squad [10 PL, 222pts]
Selections: 5x Aggressor, Aggressor Sergeant
Auto Boltstorm Gauntlets/Fragstorm Grenade Launcher

Primaris Ancient [4 PL, 69pts]

Redemptor Dreadnought [7 PL, 159pts]
Selections: 2x Fragstorm Grenade Launchers, Heavy Onslaught Gatling Cannon, Onslaught Gatling Cannon

Fast Attack
Inceptor Squad [14 PL, 246pts]
Selections: Assault bolter x2, 5x Inceptor, Inceptor Sergeant

Heavy Support
Repulsor Executioner [15 PL, 324pts]
Selections: 2x Fragstorm Grenade Launcher, Heavy Laser Destroyer, Heavy Onslaught Gatling Cannon, 2x Storm bolter, Twin Heavy Bolter, Twin Icarus Ironhail Heavy Stubber

The one thing I am nervous about is the Repulsor is the only Anti-Tank. I am thinking about dropping an inceptor and aggressor to make room for a techmarine to help increase the Repulsor's survivability. This also will give me an additional command point being able to field a Vanguard Detachment.

Thanks for your time!

I would drop the Inceptors for some more AT firepower, perhaps some Rocket Devs, and see if you can fit in some more Intercessors somewhere.

This was another list I was thinking about. It drops the Inceptors and adds Two Relic Contemptor Dreadnoughts and a Techmarine as a cheap HQ to give the extra CP. On paper, this list feels stronger than the first one adding two of the strongest units (Relic Contemptors) and dropping a subpar unit (Interceptors)

Second list looks downright menacing only thing I'd watch for is deepstrike close to your dreads don't want them rushed and caught in mele at begging of T2


I personally am not a massive fan of techmaries I'd consider dropping him and the thunder hammer from the intercessors and bring in Chaplain Cassius he will give some extra punch to your dreads and he's good in Cc and a steal at 85 points

That's me being nitpicky and I love Cassius(except the god awful sculpt)

Thanks for the feedback. The list here is probably the strongest . I have not bought the Repulsor Executioner and the price is the same as two squads of Eliminators. I plan on castling up to use the buffs from Calgar, Tigurius and the Lieutenant.

The big question I have are the Infiltrators. They are there to deny deep strike, but cost the same as two units of scouts who would be more useful to screen and protect the castle from Knights and CC armies. Is it worth it just to have that deep strike denial?

If they are just sitting back screening I'd say go for the scouts unless you want a primaries only Army

Thanks everyone for the feedback. This is the list I am going to go with. I have always been a sucker for dreadnoughts. I plan on castling up and using the Scouts as a screen/buffer if needed. I like the number of shots I can pump out and I feel the list is compact enough to hide if I do not get to go first.
