The Dead Presidents ride again

As some of you might be aware, myself and Dave OJ (of OJ Science fame) are ex-chief muppets from the Sad Muppet Society (the finest wargaming club in the world). In three weeks we’ll be attending Calnage, a 500 point doubles tournament based on the Warhammer 40000 combat patrol rules. Rather than take the frankly silly lists we tried at Winds of War, we are going for two classic Space Marine armies, Dave’s Tyranid hunting Ultramarines, and my Blood Angel’s successor chapter, the Order of Sanguinius.

Here’s what we are taking:

Ultramarines 7th Company (Dave OJ)  
Ultramarine Chaplain (digital weapons, meltabombs) 115
Tactical Squad: Space Marine Sergeant (power fist, combi-flamer, meltabombs),
9 Space Marines (flamer, missile launcher)

Razorback (twin-linked assault cannon, storm bolter) 85
Land Speeder Typhoon 90
Order of Sanguinius, Blood Angels Successor Chapter (me)  
Tactical Squad: Space Marine Sergeant (power weapon),
9 Space Marines (melta gun, missile launcher)

Razorback (twin-linked heavy bolters) 55
Scout Squad: Scout Sergeant (power weapon, meltabombs), 4 Space Marine Scouts 95
Sanguinary Priest (power weapon, meltabombs) 70
Land Speeder Typhoon 90

Will it work? I don’t really care, however it should be fun!

UPDATE: We’ve had to re-jig the to allow for the lack of painting time, so goodbye Ultramarine scouts and hello Cassius.
