I have just started building my armies (I reckon I can build both). I have quite a few troops, vehicles etc and even some forumware miniatures now including main characters. I am just unsure what I should build first looking at my first 3000 point list using this: http://epicau.com/mw/index.php/Legion_Astartes

I just wondering what I should put together to start with how many tanks (types as well including super heavies), thunderhawk?, troops and even titans? (New ones). Just wondering what would be a good start....looking foward to building and painting this asap.

If you want a fun army, then choose your favourite of the pair. If you want a tournament viable army, then the Scions-of-iron army list is one of the more competitive marine armies there out there, but this list is about to be reduxed after it was tweeked too much.

The new iron hands list is out and seems fairly competitive. comparable to the Blood angels/dark angels lists in that thay have Storm talons, but it is fairly heavy on dreadnoughts, and a mix of tactical mixed with Devastators in the basic clan (company) formation.

The salamanders list, is a hard one to work out. it seems to have weaker stats on some units, however it is riddled with a lot of Multi-Meltas range 15cm MW 5+. and also has Flamers on the Terminators, so the standard weapons on their units has reduced range but they are deadlier because they ar MW. If you can get them in close enough.

Painting wise, the Salamanders will come up better on the table.

Thanks...the way my miniatures are going I might be able to do both. Or at least Salamanders and another basic adeptus astrates army. I will post a picture here and on have book of what I have built/ have soon and it might help get a better idea of what might be a good for my army (or armies).

Good info Deb smile.gif

Arithon, unfortunately as in all things these days it seems BookFace is the place to be for chit chat.
Epic Armageddon Australia is where most of the regular names at the tourneys etc come to chat.
18th Aug this year is Castle Assault in Newcastle Legions club. Might be worth aiming for if you are keen. It will be 40k vs 30k specifically, but Marines work in 40k too smile.gif
