The majority of models you're fighting either have trouble with T5/3+/FNP, or if they don't they would be going first against initiative 4 anyway, or are striking after i3/i4 anyway. It does matter for some things, but you're still getting badass fearless marines for the price.

I actually had fun playing again. See how long-lived said fun is, but for now :D

We did a 2 on 2, 500-point each, battle. My CSMs and an ork player vs Blood Angels and Ultramarines. Under my direction the newbie ork player was in their face with nobs at the bottom of turn 1 (they got too close!), and I blasted anything that tried to make it to my lines. I had 2 x 5 CSMs with a plasma gun in each, 2 single oblits, 3 bikes with 2 plasmas, and a cheap-o Chaos Lord. Ork player had two large units of boyz and a warboss with nobs in a trukk. Opponents had 2 units of assault marines, a librarian, dread, a couple of tacticals, one in rhino, devastator with 2 MLs, Chaplain in termie armor and a dread. Good intro to 6e, but it was over for them pretty quickly. I am definitely bringing my own ork screen in 1on1 games from now on!

Thanks for the advice. Next time we play we are doing 1,000 or 1,500 each and, hopefully, 1 on 1 games.

Wait'll you use empty Chimeras for a screen with a guard gunline behind you. :)

Jim, out of curiosity, where are you playing these days?

Cool Jim!

Let me know if you want your Tao back. I haven't done a thing with them. :D

Hey Leah! How's tricks? Ohhh, my tau?! I was just talking with Ali the other night about how much I regret selling every painted model I ever sold. Please shoot me an email!
