Default 1500 Trait Army

So basically this will be my Space Marine army for my project, I will also have a Chaos "Nemesis" army to go along with it. Don't have any background fluff as of yet, or a name. The current name was just something that was their to fill the void for now. Nothing permenant. Any way, on to the list:

[size=14pt] The Warriors of Winterfell [/size]
1500pts


Traits
"Honour Your Wargear" and "No Mercy, No Respite"

Drawbacks
"Flesh Over Steel" and "Death Before Dishonour"

Headquarters

++Master of Sanctity++
Crozius Arcanum, Rosarius, Terminator Armour, Storm Bolter
= 130pts

Terminator Command Squadron
Sergeant w/ Storm Bolter, Power Weapon
5 Terminators (2 Assault cannons)
= 240pts

Elites

++Devestator Squadron++
Sereant w/ Bolter
8 Space Marines (4 Heavy Bolters)
Infiltrate
= 222pts

++Veteran Squadron++
Sergeant w/ Terminator Honors, Mastercrafted Powerfist, Bolt Pistol, Purity Seals
6 Space Marines (BP + CCW, 1 Plasma Gun)
Furious Assault
= 186pts

Troops
++Tactical Squadron Alpha++
Segeant w/ Terminator Honors, Storm Bolter, Power Weapon
9 Space Marines (8 Bolters, Plasma Gun)
Furious Assault
= 215pts

++Tactical Squadron Beta++
Segeant w/ Terminator Honors, Storm Bolter, Power Weapon
9 Space Marines (8 Bolters, Plasma Gun)
Furious Assault
= 215pts

++Scout Squadron++
7 Scouts (6 Sniper Rifles, 1 Heavy Bolter)
=126pts

Fast Attack
++Land Speeder Squadron++
1 Land Speeder Tornado (Assault Cannon)
=80pts

++Land Speeder Squadron++
1 Land Speeder Tornado (Assault Cannon)
=80pts

Total Points:[size=12pt][b]1494[/size]


So basically I need to know where my Strengths and weaknesses are. I am aware that I have limited anti-tank abilities, and that the devestators are a very poor choice. At the moment I have hit a wall however, and cannot seem to think of a way to add more anti-tank, but still keep a mostly all infantry army. All comments are welcome!

Drop the Chaplain's storm bolter. It's pretty well useless.
Drop a Terminator from the command squad; it'll be just as durable of a scoring unit (in needs to lose 3).

How are the veterans gonna get into close combat? Get them something; rhino, drop pod, whatever. Also, even-numbers. Put another veteran in. Finally, master-crafting the power fist is a bit much. I'd suggest you drop it.

Swap your tac-sarges' storm bolters for bolt pistols. Find some points to get them a transport.

Either drop or add a scout to the scout squad; even numbers.

That's all I've got to say.

Sweet! thanks!

hmmm how does this sound. If I drop these:

- Storm Bolters
-MC on powerfist
-Scout Squad
-1 Terminator

I should be able to buy a Rhino with smoke launchers and extra armour for the tactical Squad, and a drop pod for the veterans.

or, would it be better to take out Furious Assault, and then give the vets Infiltrate instead???

Just some more ideas...

I would use drop pods for vets and tac squads because of the sheer amount of rapid fire and plasma weapons they're toting around. Deep strike your entire army and your opponent will lose half his shooting phases waiting around on you.
