Hi all, I'm new to this forum and first of all wanted to say hello to all of you! I think it would perhaps be helpful to get a list discussion thread going to give beginners (like myself) a starting point for some firefight teams. I did two lists for the GW first strike box which you can get for roughly 30€. It will give you 6 battle brothers (3 close combat and 3 assault rifle models) and 3 plague marines and 6 zombies / plague walkers. together with a couple of dice and a 6" measure. I did two lists @255 points. Since I just read the great book "Spear of the Emperor" I wanted to give them the same feel as the marines in the book. Therefore I chose the Wolf Brothers Detachment.
The list contains: 3x Wolf Brothers (CCW and Pistol) 1x Wolf Brother (Assault Rifle) 2x Battle Brother (Plasma Rifle) --> You need to proxy these if using the box since there are no plasmas.
On the other side you have the plague brothers list:
3x Plague Brothers 2x Plague Zombies units
You can find a PDF to print out together with the special rules for easier lookup during battle.
Feel free to give me some feedback on these lists since I am an total noob
