Army Lists: Space Marines 'No Spam' - 2,000 points


Another no spam list. If you missed what spam is classified as then take a look at this article: what is spam?

When I played Space Marines back in the day I really enjoyed the double Land Raider list. Having two massive tanks bulldoze all before them and have some tough cookie Assault Terminators pile out was great fun. I decided to basically re-create that list:

Space Marines 'No Spam' - 2,000 points

HQ

Chaplain - terminator armour & combi flamer
Librarian - terminator armour & storm shield

Elite

5 x Assault Terminators - 5 x thunder hammers & storm shields
5 x Assault Terminators - 5 x thunder hammers & storm shields

Troops

10 x Tactical Marines w/ Razorback - meltagun & missile launcher - sgt w/ combi melta - Razorback w/ twin-linked lascannons
10 x Tactical Marines w/ Razorback - meltagun & missile launcher - sgt w/ combi melta - Razorback w/ twin-linked lascannons
10 x Tactical Marines w/ Razorback - flamer & missile launcher - sgt w/ combi flamer - Razorback w/ twin-linked lascannons

Heavy Support

Land Raider - multi melta & extra armour
Land Raider - multi melta & extra armour

Total: 1,985

I know there isn't a lot here but that's what happens when you inject points into two big hammer units, it's not like you're going to have a fat lot left! Speaking of stuff left, still got 15 points left - maybe a combi weapon on the Chaplain?

I have added a Libby just to mix it up. The Assault Terminators will be wanting to re-roll to hit so the Libby will take prescience power. Also the Libby adds some psychic defence.

Basically this list just ploughs forward and uses brute force to get the job done; lascannons smash armour and take wounds from monstrous creatures while the Assault Terminators get out and finish anything in their path - they will re-roll to hit when they charge thanks to the Chaplain's hatred special rule.

The Razorbacks will move up behind the Land Raiders or at least use them to get some kind of cover save. I decided for twin-linked lascannons as everyone uses las/plas. I know there's three squads of Tact Marines, but some people said if they are geared up differently then it doesn't count as spam, so I went along with that even though I do not agree with it myself.

This list has a massive weakness to fliers as it only has 7 twin-linked lascannons to deal with fliers and lets face it those lascannons aren't always going to be around.
