Evening all,

Could someone share a couple of sensible/balance small starter marine lists?
Doesn't need to be 'competitive' but after a couple of builds with sensibly sized formations to playtest e40k with 3mm minis.

Hard to find e40k sample lists around!

Thanks

Here’s a quick 750 point list. https://ijw.on-rev.com/remastered/e40k_ ... 18x3%0D%0A

Detachment size is a whole discussion topic in itself, arguably more so than in EA! But this old tactics article has some sample detachments at the bottom: https://thehobby.zone/resources/e40k-co ... perium.htm

Is there any articles you can point to about this? I do not remember reading much of that in the WD and other magazine's articles, or in here.

There’s an old thread that goes into it a bit here: https://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd ... 12&t=31656

Ta!

The printer bit is all my work, but the front-end for building the detachments is pretty much standard Armyforge. The main page is https://ijw.on-rev.com/remastered/

Note that some points costs don’t match the ones in the Armies Book as I’m working more strictly to a points cost formula. Marine Attack Bikes being one of the prime culprits, where GW costed them at 10pt each, but they actually work out at 17pt each… :{[]
