The importance of numbers in BA list


So, after playing a couple of games with the BAs, ive determine that all the new toys cant substitute for a horde of assault marines with FNP and F.Charge. I played a few games with the web famous RAZ squads, and they arent as great as I thought they would be. While they are nasty on the charge against other marines, they still get chewed up by any assault eldar unit or a mob of boys. So, with that said, my tournament list is evolving. Below is what I have thus far (for the 1850 tourney). As you can see, I have 130 points left. Im thinking of beefing up the sqauds and adding 2x attack bikes with multi meltas.

Looks like enough points to fill out you're RAZ squads with Sang Priests toting 15pt equipment of choice.
I like that you upped you're squad size to 9 Marines in Rhinos... 5 Marines comes off as to fragile to me as well, even with FNP. I think this will fare better for you.

Agreed... The 5 man squad just weren't cutting it. I'm not the greatest player in the world (yet), so I do need something more forgiving. Loosing 5 wounds is just too easy when it comes down to grabbing the objectives.

I actually got to 1850 by adding in the 2x attack bikes and beefing out the squads some. I do keep on thinking of maybe grabbing a vindicator, but I just dont love those tanks (even though when I used one in my ultra marines army nothing felt better than landing a S 10 - 2 large blast on that unit of marines or termies)

I personally don't like the 10 man squad with Jump Packs. I would drop the JP on the Librarian, and change the squad to an Honor Guard with 2x Power Weapons, 2x Melta, Razorback w/ TL Assault Cannons and you have 5 pts left over. (If you want to make them a tad more combat ready then you can drop the TLACs and go with a Chapter Banner and TWO MB to help with Wound Allocation).
