Ultramarines - 2,000 points

Deathwatch Characters provide they shall know no fear

Now I have been planning a blue sky approach to my army list building, i.e lets build a list around what we want to have, then start to purchase models to make it work. 

However I am not quite there yet! So with that in mind, time to write a 2k list that uses some of the elements I want to bring in, and is filled out by the stuff that I actually have!

This has a chunk of firepower, and should be able to stay very mobile for claiming objectives and reacting to opponent moves.

It played relatively well in its first game against Deathwatch last week, and this time is getting its second run out (with no changes) to see how it performs again.

Once I have had a couple of games with it I will look to what I think needs changing - although I already know I'd really love to have Chief Librarian Tigurius in here, and he is easy enough to do by dropping a couple of Intercessors for the points.

The Apothecary & Ancient didn't live up to their points in the last game either, but we shall see how they perform in round 2!
