You can't buy your Master the Furious Charge skill unless he's part of a command squad.

Get a second assault cannon in the terminator squad - mix'n'match is not a good idea, as it decreases their specilization and therefore efficiency.

How many points do you have left? Make room for a sergeant in the assault squad.

You would need a sergeant because he'll have a power fist, and power fists can take down vehicles and monstrous creatures. The main killers of the assault squads are the sergeants (and characters), the rest of the squad is just ablative shielding and collateral damage.

For instance, a sergeant with a power fist on the charge will kill, on average, 1-2 MEQs, leaning towards 2. And if you hit, it's rather easy to kill more.
Your Master will kill 3 MEQs.
6 assault marines will kill 1-2, leaning towards 1. 2 on average, counting FC.

Also, make sure to have even numbers - that way, more have to die to make the unit no longer score (4/7 need to die, as compared to 4/6 and 5/8).

You can't buy Land Speeders extra armour. Add on assault cannons, as well.

The Hunter-killer missile is a one-shot wonder, and it's easy to do nothing with it. I'd recommend dropping it, and only getting it if you really have nothing else to buy.

Get squad Irish a rhino to get them to the enemy.

If you get a sergeant, rhino with armour/smokes, an extra assault marine, and assault cannons, that should run you 180 points or so, give or take.

Default Re: My DIY Army List

are ou seriously thinknig about deep striking assault terminators?

they will get no shots when they lad and cannot charge.

I suggest either getting a land raider or swaping them for an ordinary terminator squad and deep strike both at the same time.

Also consider some scouts.. jsut cause there cool!
