BA JUMPERS

BY MATT DIXON

To follow up on yesterdays list, I magnetized all the assault marines jump packs and sergeants arms so that I can quickly swap to a jump pack list.  2 armies with 1 paintjob!

Libby – Blood Lance, Sanguinary Shield, Jump Pack

Honor Guard – 4x Meltaguns, 3x Storm Shields, Jump Packs

2 Sanguinary Priest – Jump Packs, Combi-Meltas [150]

5 Sanguinary Guard – 200

10 Assault Marines – 2 Meltaguns, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [250]

10 Assault Marines – 2 Meltaguns, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [250]

5 Assault Marines – 1 Meltagun, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [150]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

I played against Marshall’s NAF IG army and after turn 3 he conceded (well, had to leave).  The list worked well overall but really needs to stick together and attack 1 flank to avoid being overwhelmed.  I really like the addition of the missile launchers as they helped me take on targets I normally have troubles with (vendettas) while providing additional support busting chimeras late game.  I really wanted to see how the HG squad operated as a drop in an destroy something and then tank the enemy but unfortunately it scattered onto a chimera and was destroyed.  This forced me to only work with 2 priests and in all honesty I think that it’s enough.  If I make a change it will be to drop a priest and give the SG a few melta pistols.  The next list I’m gonna try will look something like this:

Librarian – Jump Pack, Blood Lance, Sanguinary Shield [100]

Honor Guard – Jump Packs, 4 Meltaguns, 3 Storm Shields [265]

1 Sanguinary Priests – 1 Jump Pack, 1Combi-Melta [85]

Sanguinary Guard – 2 Infernus Pistol [220]

10 Assault Marines – 2 Meltaguns, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [250]

10 Assault Marines – 2 Meltaguns, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [250]

7 Assault Marines – 1 Meltagun, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol [186]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

5 Devastators – 4 Missile Launchers [130]

1746/1750

Basically I gave the Sanguinary Guard 2 melta pistols and 2 assault marines to the 5 man squad making it 7 (Good bunker for the priest).  So I’d have 2 jumping priest (remember 1 comes with the HG as is NOT an IC)  We’ll see though, I might miss that third priest.
