TRANSPORT 1: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 2: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 3: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 4: Razorback (0) Twin Linked Heavy Bolter [0]
TRANSPORT 5: Razorback (0) Twin Linked Heavy Bolter [0]
TRANSPORT 6: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 7: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 8: Rhino [0]
TRANSPORT 9: Razorback (0) Twin Linked Heavy Bolter [0]
TRANSPORT 10: Razorback (0) Twin Linked Heavy Bolter [0]
TOTAL: [1850]

I had a game vs a nasty eldar list that had 2 units of flamer D wraith guard, a wraith Knight, jet bikes, and even the flyer formation! at the end of the game he only had 1 flyer and the wraith Knight on two wounds left!

The best thing was every tiny unit being a threat and the combat tactocs/doctrines. As a Ultramarine getting all 3 for being UM, all 3 again for gladius formation and a 3rd Tactical one was amazing. effective 3 turns of twin linked Tac squads, and having an option for every game turn for maximum effect made even Bolters deadly to wraith guard and even the AV 10 flyers!

So as a UM that's 3 Tactical doctrines, 2 Assault, and 2 Devastator doctrines as well as the free transports.
