The army has access to lots of fast attack options and excels at getting in the face of the enemy as soon as possible. They can also field a very dangerous deathstar unit in the form of the Death Company.
Here is the Battleforce Box
10 Space Marines
5 Assault Marines
5 Death Company
This is a very effective force for $100, a savings of $36.25.
Fiery Orange (to highlight the red)
Space Wolves Gray
Trim Colors for squad designations.
- For an HQ, take something with a jump pack that can join the death company or assault squad. Blood Angel Heroes do their best in combat and a jump pack gets them there.
- The Baal Predator is a great tank for cutting down troops and light tanks. It is a good support vehicle for softening up the enemy before the troops get in.
- More Death Company is always a good choice. They are some of your best troops, why not have a bunch of them?
I sometimes get frustrated that my own marines are not super good in close combat. This is not true with this army. They have the ability to get into combat quickly and dish out lots of pain when they get there. Also, the Death Company gets "Feel no Pain," so they can take a lot of punishment. They also have some of the coolest models among all the Space Marines, hands down!
