Now that I'm finished reviewing the Eldar codex, I'm going to go over the various Chapter Tactics available for Space Marines. Of course, I'll be going over the ones in the codex, but Forgeworld recently updated the rules for all of the Space Marine Chapters and characters that they have produced. Even better, the rules are all available for free. You can consider it an expansion for Codex: Space Marines. It’s available here:
Of course, I have to start with my own Chapter, the Executioners. While they are Imperial Fist successors (and I’ve been playing them as such), they are divergent enough to warrant their own Chapter Tactics. First up, they have Bitter Mettle, which means they ignore all negative LD modifiers. This is essentially a better Stubborn, which never was that great before. That said, it’s not so bad anymore because it’s not an alternative to the old Combat Tactics. It makes your marines just a little more dependable, which is never a bad thing.
