Nice theme but no anti-tank weapons besides the powerfist.
Why not bring a "Slipknot" or "Carrion Raven" Predator Anhilator to accompany the Coffen?

I love the fluff, its just so creative! The names could do with some work, but the way they got them is brilliantly thought up. Also, the color-scheme seems intresting... could you post some pics?

One bone to pick however, how can a space marine chapter have UltraMarines be a rival as much as the Tyranids are to them? I can't see two Space Marine chapters being bitter enemies to the result of battle on sight. An explanation, perhaps?

As for the Ultra marines and tyranid rivals I did this cause in my story i'm righting over my Chapter one section my chapter was backstabbed by the ultramarines when dealing with Tyranid hive nest. My chapter was fairly new with very little soldiers to spair allied the Ultramarines but once the hive awoken the Ultramarines made like a bannana and split leaving my chapter behind... make some sence now?

While the rivalry does make sense, I find that it would probably be best to use a different SM chapter. Ultramarines are THE 'Nid hunters of the Adeptus Astartes, hence they have Tyranid Hunters. If would make a lot more sense to use a chapter such as the White Scars, given their tactic of hit and run. And unless they boarded the Hive Ships, the Hive would've already been awake when they reached the planet. Might be better to state that once the Hive Fleet began making progress on the world, the White Scars made a hasty retreat off the planet.
