Default 1500 pts, 1st Company Ultramarines, Cassius' Apostles of Vengeance

Well, here's an attempt to do a list with Cassius & Tyrannic War Vets. I would do a Tigurius army, except that it might end up too boring to play in friendlies if Fear of the Darkness really is 24" with Tigurius' Hood... so I'm going with Cassius now & 1st Company.

Chaplain Cassius joins with Tyrannic War Vet Squad Phyleus, so that's why there's that odd squad in there.

Tyrannic War Vet Sergeant Glaukos is a little funky in his loadout... but I wanted him to be very different than the more standard loadout on Sergeant Phyleus.
EDIT: Whoops, I added him up wrong, so now I had to slash stuff & I'm still over... I hate being over. I'll dump the smoke on one of the tanks, or maybe change the Combi-Melta to a Storm Bolter... but I like the Combi-Melta in those situations where you want (& the enemy doesn't expect) the Melta. Maybe I'll change Lucius' squad back to a Multi-Melta (which was the original loadout, as silly as Multi-Meltas are), or a Missile Launcher. I don't just want "typical" Space Marines, even with the Ultramarines.

I tried to adhere to 10-man squads as much as I could, and I added Terminator Honours to the Sgt in the full tactical squad in order to reflect the Veteran nature of 1st Company.

If I reduced Squad sizes, I could probably add a Whirlwind or maybe even a Dreadnought... but total army efficiency was not the overall goal compared to a somewhat idealized & somewhat effective Ultramarines unit.

I still do have a cheap Las/Plas unit because I feel like I need the anti-tank. I have Scouts because I think they are cool. If I consolidated both, I could probably have another full Tactical Squad in a Rhino... I'm not sure I want that.

The Vindicator ideally rolls up with a Rhino on either side of it... I might chop down the Vindicator for a Predator Annihilator w/ Hvy Bolter sponsons... but I like the Vindicator. The Predator Destructor could be converted into a Dreadnought or to flesh out the rest of the Squads/maybe add a Razorback, but right now it's extra anti-tank that sits in the back.
