I like him, but personally, I would pay the 15 points to make him a Master, plus I would give him Term. Honors. He&#39;s a CC dude, so having the extra wound and attack would be very helpful. Not to mention, as a Master, everyone else is suddenly Ld 10! ;D

I&#39;d say these guys are solid, but I would throw in a a couple extra marines, probably bumping them to 7 or 8 (8 or 9 with the captain, respectfully). I&#39;d also give the Vet. Sgt. a powerfist instead of sword, seeing as how the rest of the squad can protect him.

As an aside, I just totalled this squad up; I believe you have them priced about 15 points over what they should be. Also, don&#39;t forget that the marine with the bolt pistol and chainsword also has frags.

Again, solid. The only changes I would make is to give them Extra Armor, which I personally believe is almost mandatory on any vehicle that can take it. Maybe smoke launchers too.

Very solid troop choices. Not too often that you see 10-man squads. Kudos to you for taking them! ;D

Again, solid. The only gripe I would have is that I personally don&#39;t like multi-meltas when they&#39;re being carried by infantry. Too short ranged, in my opinion, for a heavy weapon. Personally, I&#39;d replace them with either missile launchers or lascannons, but that&#39;s just me.

I&#39;d say these choices are solid too. However, take that with a grain of salt, seeing as how I&#39;m a Black Templar, and I don&#39;t get Whirlwinds. :P

Ok, so the changes I would recommend aren&#39;t too big:

Captain to Master
Term. Honors for Master
Powerfist to Command Squad Vet. Sgt.
+3 Marines w/ BP + CCW, Frags & Infiltrate to Command Squad
Extra Armor to both Dreadnoughts

Should bring you to 1499 points, if my math is right. Hope this helps.
