40k Army List V - Two 1500pt Ultramarine Armies
Team Combat - Choosing Your Role
Most team matches allow Players a 1500pt Army list. Here I have supplied two Ultramarines Codex supported lists which can be utilized by anyone using Space Marines from the codex. It is important to recognize what your teammate is bringing to the battle when considering what list you are going to unleash.
For instance when I used the Marneus list my teammate and I slaughtered our foe with casual disregard. My teammate had a ten man devastator squad and a predator, a squad of shooting Terminators with an assault cannon; these all served to support my close in attacking and infiltrating squads. If it had been an assault match we would have won hands down.
Instead we lost the match because we didn't have enough troops in the end to take and keep enough objectives. I only brought two troops rather than the three noted below. Although we slaughtered and humbled them they beat us handily by points because of our lack of troops. Important to remember! If you get lucky and know you are going to be playing annihilation, prepare for shock and awe because this list destroys. Take away one of the troop options and go for something with close up power instead. Try Lightning claw terminators or a Vanguard or even a Dreadnought with close combat weapons.
The Cato team list I have not had the opportunity to use yet so I will not claim foreknowledge on how that is going to work out. As always, I hope those of you who use one of these lists gets back to me and gives me a battle report or success report on how it did for you. Death to all heretics! For the Empire!
