Angels of Death

I came across some excellent Excel army list templates today courtesy of Ben over at The Quiet Limit of the World and got inspired to try my hand at some listbuilding. Since I haven't gotten my hands on a copy of the WFB 8th edition rulebook yet (and the universal magic items list that comes with it), here's a Dark Angels list.

Actually, it's a Codex: Space Marines army list painted green, which is an unforgivable sin around certain sectors of the web. Luckily, my group is pretty cool about this sort of thing. And for the haters out there, whatever man, I put in my time fielding Deathwing for the past couple years and I want to put some tactical marines on the table.

If it makes you feel any better, I overcame the urge to field Blood Angels. And I'm pretty sure I figured out a nice deep red, too.

Space Marines: 1500

HQ:
  • Chaplain: combi-melta, jump pack (130)

Elites:
  • Terminator Squad (5): assault cannon (230)

Troops:
  • Tactical Squad (10): plasma gun, plasma cannon, Rhino (220)
  • Tactical Squad (10): plasma gun, plasma cannon, Rhino (220)
  • Tactical Squad (10): power weapon, flamer, heavy bolter (185)
  • Scouts (10): 5 bolt pistol/combat knives, 4 sniper rifles, heavy bolter

Fast Attack:
  • Assault Squad (5): power fist, flamer (135)

Heavy Support:
  • Devastator Squad (10): 4 missile launchers (230)
It's a weird list; not enough redundancy, a distinct lack of melta, et cetera. I'm looking forward to painting these models, though, and I think it'll be a good start toward a painted army collection.

  2. I think you are off to a great start. Get a bunch of boots on the ground first. I like to paint assault/heavy weapons seperate from the herds anyway.
