Default Need help putting togethor a 1000pt list

Alright, so I'm in the process of collecting a 1000pt Space Marines list. I'm still considering on wheither or not I want to include traits. My basic play style is a little more defensive, but able to make a good offensive when the time comes.

I've made 100's of lists in my years of playing, but I still have not found one that I can stick with :-[

I don't like vehicles to much, but a dread is definately wanted :P

What I was thinking to start off was this:

-Commander
-2x 10 man tactical squads
- Assault terminators
-Dread (assault cannon)


This should form a solid back bone for the army, and if i could still go to vet's night with just this I would, but I know that doesnt come close to 1000pts :P (You can only bring 1000pt armies at my local GW).

What would you flesh this back bone out with?

Take Shooty Terminators instead of Assault terminators because u have no transport and I have no faith in infiltrate skill, because sometimes u can't get in until round 3.

LOL and thats the kicker... I went to buy a Terminator Squad...and the GW staffer convinced me to buy the Assault Terminators... I have a bad ass looking squad thats half painted sitting on my desk, waiting for an army to join :P

It's not infiltrate, its Deep Strike. Common mistake.
This is just the back bone of the army. Its not the whole thing. thats what I need help with, hence the point and title of this thread...

They did
If u are gonna use Assault Terminators u need a transport because if u now use Deep Strike u can't assault only shoot when u get down to the battlefield.
I think Assault terminators should have a Chaplin, really hardcore unit. Chaplin does so the whole squad re-roll to hit, Lighting claws re-roll to wound.
So if u are gonna use Assault Terminators u probably should use them in bigger battles so u can take a LRC as transport
and the squad with a Chaplin.

As you really want to use the Assault Termies now that you've bought them I'd suggest making a static fire power list and have your Assault Termies as your counter assault unit.

Do you have the Dread already too?

I'd go with a cheap Master/Captain with a Storm Bolter.

2 6/8 Man Las/Plas squads.

2 6/8 Man Heavy Bolter/Plas squads.

Then your Assault Termies and Dread.
