Purgation Lords Formation: Purging Hammer

This is simply put: a brutal vanilla marine army list to play when either 1. You don't feel like thinking too much or moving too much model, 2. You don't feel like taking any BS that day for some reason.

HQ: Captain Bysunder (Lysander profile)

Elite: Assault terminators, 2 LC, 3 TH/SS
Elite: Assault terminators, 1 LC, 4 TH/SS
Elite: Assault terminators, 1 LC, 4 TH/SS

Heavy Support: Land Raider, multi melta
Heavy Support: Land Raider Crusader, multi melta
Heavy Support: Land Raider Redeemer, multi melta

Troops: Scouts 5 men snipers camo cloak
Troops: Scouts 5 men snipers camo cloak

Total 1750 pts

This list can even be qualified of being "fluffy":-

Purging Hammer is a time tested formation formed by the Purgation Lords in response to critical events when a battle could turn the tides of war, situation like when enemy war leader is sighted or the flank of Imperial formation is in danger of being overrun. There a hero would lead chapter components fully made up of members of the first company, their kill query confirmed by advanced scouts teams infiltrated in key areas and they would strike out in full landraiders formation. Indeed, few opponents can hope to stand against such brutal assault.

The beauty of this list lies in its simplicity: you are simply there to throw the weight of first company around; and by changing the leading hero, the army will response in different way but keep its deadliness. For example you could swap Bysunder for Valcon then suddenly all your multi meltas and Thunder hammers are master crafted, or you can get Shrike in for fleeting assault terminators; or would you rather get a librarian and a chaplain for re roll to hit + null zone combo? The fun never ends... as long as you are not on the receiving end.
