HQ
Master - Pbbbt! Pick a job and stick to it. You want either a close-combat oriented Master or a cheap LD spreader. I recommend the latter. Quick drops: exchange the Lightning Claw for a power weapon, drop the Halo for a combat shield. Furthermore, you payed 6 points too little.

Elite
Dread - Meh. I'd say drop the Furious Charge; as slow and fragile as a dreadnought is, he won't be getting much use out of it.

Troops
Tac1 - Fist! Power fist, not sword. Drop the pintle-stormbolter on the rhino, it's way too expensive.

Scouts - Peachy, except that you don't need the Veteran Sergeant.

Tac2 - Close, but no cigar. You over-payed by 10 points. Get these guys a transport or something, along with a special weapon.

Tac3 - 100 points, not 95. Get a sixth man.

Fast Attack
AssSquad - Drop the Storm Shield on the Sergeant. Losing an attack is not worth the invulnerable save that you'll never use.

Heavy
Not a big fan of whirlinds, and you lack anti-armour.

personally, I really don't like the min/maxing of the 4th troop choice... what are you going to do with that lascannon the first 2 turns when you have to move. Or if you don't move, what are you going to do with that plasma gun? I say get rid of it and trick out some of your other units...

Adding another assault marine to the unit would up it's survivability, or maybe put those points into a dev squad and get two lascannons... or better yet, outfit your other veteran sargeant with a powerfist?

By the way, you do know that only models with bolters benefit from True Grit (i.e. not your meltagunner)?

Yes, I know that meltagunners won't benefit, but I thought that you had to give Trust Your BB to every member of a squad. Also, if it says 9 marines, then the sergent is considered the tenth, sorry for the confusion.

OK, just making sure... I don't know if you have to buy it for the whole squad but I didn't know about the special weapons guys not getting TG... Also, as tempting as it is to be 'Hey, the more guys I have, the longer the squad will survive' it's really not worth it to cram that many guys into a single troop choice... The general rule of thumb for things like this is 8-man CC squads and 6-man Shooty squads so as to have things spread out and more maneuverable...

Having 10 is just fine. After all, they're Marines. The more the merrier. Well, so long as they're doing their job, like unloading from a Rhino and blowing infantry to hell.

You have to buy True Grit & Counter Attack for the entire squad. True Grit only works with Bolters, and Storm Bolters if you're power-armoured Grey Knights. However, one might say that the special weapon carriers have bolters (which they do, technically), but it's not going to make many friends.

Keep the lascannon in the 3rd Tac squad. It's a great weapon, and Las/Plas squads work very well.

either give your scouts bolters or take away your sniper and missle launcher.


and give your master a bolt pistol instead of a storm bolter.

otherwise pretty it's solid, i like it.
