With the master of the forge you can take Dreadnoughts as Heavy Support choices. And I agree, the assault cannon will do way better.

Anyway, I don't think terminators are that useful against horde armies. If they cause enough wounds before you can swing, then the Termies will die, and most good horde players will assault the Terminators. If it were me, I would take a Thunderfire Cannon. Trust me. It's Less than half the points of the Terminators, and will do way more damage. Also, I think that the dreadnoughts are going to drown in bodies. 3 attacks a turn, for the ironclads, and if you roll poorly, you'll never leave combat. Maybe try As Sharpe said another Tactical Squad, maybe with a heavy bolter and a flamer.
