Dual Army. Salamanders and Blood Angels.

Hey Folks! Dragkon here.

Ironclad 170 (drop pod)

Troops

Tactical Squad 210 (drop pod, multi-melta, melta gun)

Why you taking Hammernators as allies, when S.M codex can get Hammernators for 25 points cheaper?

Hi Mercer. I am aware that they are cheaper in the S.M. but having them in the B.A. helps create a powerful unit. My normal use for them is having them with the librarian and the storm raven. If i had them as S.M. they would not be able to use the storm raven and that would muck the way they are used.
As Battle Brothers they can use each others transports as long as they are not a dedicated transport to one particular unit, and they can gain from each others psychic powers and so on from their allies. Or have I read the rules for Battle Brothers wrongly?

Are those multi-meltas the best option in the new rules? I feel that the missile launcher may be a better option for one of them, to gain move and fire and snapshot reactions. Just a thought.

Hi nick the third bullet point in the battle brothers part say that you cannot share transports. The reason for the multi melta is because of vulkan and the twin linked weapons.

I think that the BA terminators work pretty well in the Stormraven.

As for Multi-Melta vs Missile Launchers, with Vulkan the Multi-Melta is twice as effective at Snap shots as the Multi-Melta.

Being mounted in a drop pod means that they shouldnt realistically have a problem with being in range of something, and if the Multi-Melta is in range and it isnt a tank then the rest of the unit is much more useful as well.

I like this list as it uses some decent parts from two Codices without the standard cheese you may see (i.e I am taking X Codex with Y Codex to counter my problems).

Cab you carry terminators in a stormraven?

Would you be allowed to have that many units in drop pods now? I'm just thinking about the 50% of army in reserve maximum that now applies.

U can have that many pods. The 50% reserve rule only applies to units thst DON'T have to start in reserve whereas pods n fliers MUST start in reserve.
I really like this army - fluff and aesthetic wise it has a lot of what gives Marines that 'shock and awe' feel.

And I could very much end up copying much of it! The Salamanders core of it is exactly the core of my Sallies army, and I have a small side project which involved a BA Terminator-focused army centred on a Librarian and Stormraven.

The only negative I feel is perhaps the 5 man assault unit in a pod - I know you need a BA troops choice and for effectiveness, a 5th pod, but I think they're just gonna get minced, no?

Hi car
With the 5 man assault squad I can see where you are coming from with it but it doesn't have to start in the drop pod. So I could use it to hold one object while the rest of the army pounds away at the opponent.
Kraggi said…
@ManC - Yup, Terminators can be carried in a Stormraven. It has a capacity of 12, and Terminators take 2 slots per.

@Car - I think that the 5 man assault squad can quite easily get minced, but it is running two flamers and with the 6" deploy from Drop Pods now a days that means you should be able to arrive and hurt something, they are as much a distraction unit or a something small to hold an objective.
