Goatboy here with another army list. Fire at will Brothers!

The Bolter Drill new rule lets you do some dumb stuff especially when mixed with the powerful Aura abilities of the Roboute himself.   These good guy things are just so… good guy haha.  Still the idea of this list is to have a ton of bikes, some counter assault abilities, and tons of Storm Bolters.  With that – let’s get building.

Revenge of the Bullets

Storm Bolter – Bringing of the Blessed Bolt – V.1

Battalion – 5CP – Space Marines [81pl, 1112pts]

Faction – Ultramarines

Captain [6pl, 112pts] – Jump Pack, Power Fist, Storm Shield
Techmarine on Bike [6pl, 83pts] – Powerfist, Servo-Arm, Storm Bolter
Techmarine on Bike [6pl, 83pts] – Powerfist, Servo-Arm, Storm Bolter

-LoW-
Roboute Guilliman [18pl, 400pts] – Warlord

Pts – 1902 (saved room for an assassin) CP – 12

All the Bolters Tactics

This gives us 12 CP to spend – which will be at least 1 for a single Assassin of whatever we need.  Plus it has a crap ton of Storm Bolter fire that will shoot, reroll to hit and reroll to wound.  This is pretty nuts as each Company Veteran squad throws out 40 shots each plus all the bikes.  It will most likely play like a brick of death that shuffles around and has its tendrils going out everywhere.  Plus it has some Captains it can drop in, punch something as needed, and let you get in where you need too.  I get the feeling a Vindicare will be helpful most of the time but the Culexus is still something usable as well.

I command you to not miss!

Still it is fun pushing bikes around the table top and making a ton of pew pew sounds as you mow down guys with Stormbolter fire.

P.S. Hopefully Battle Scribe built this right as I don’t see an exclamation point.  If I somehow did something wrong or it won’t work like I think it will – comment away – the Goat can take it.
