How does this look?

I have some Terminators and Assault Terminators but I just dont think they would be worth removing other choices for.

I also have 5 Grey Knights I wish I could add but cant find room for.

I also have a Land Raider but it is so expensive

Thanks

Do you think I should take out one of the squads or cut back on their numbers to bring the termies or Grey Knights?

If you drop the melta bombs and plasma pistols from the assault squad along with 5 points from somewhere else, you can afford another Las/Plas squad (though if you can't find the 5 points, get a 6-man squad with a Missile Launcher and a Plasma Gun).

Overall, this list is pretty good, though you're close to getting too much wargear. Be very careful with your combat squads and you'll do well.

You also might want to make the Scout Squad into a straight combat squad in order to help out your HQ, just don't make them mixed like you had.

Thanks for all the help but I have a few questions/comments

And my Command Squad has all BP and CCW already I knew that.

Why is the pair of lightning claws so good?

I dont like taking a Lascannon and a plasma gun in the same squad since I will eithe rbe moving and use the las or be long range and not use the plasma.
How do you effectively manage that combination?

The devs with tankhunters should be able to handle any vehicles and the meltas on the Chaplain plus the Assault marines was to help with that too. I have found those melta bombs invaluable for dread and such in CC and for just charging a tank.

Oh and I dont have any lascannon models so thats an issue.

And for my speeder it has those weapons already and I dont have an asscan to give it. I wish I did though...

As for my scout squad I have 4 guys with snipers, 1 with a M.Launcher, adn 4 with BP and CCW so I dont really have a choice. The BP and CCW are mainly to take hits for the snipers. Is that a good plan?

I really want the snipers to help with demons and wraithlords though.

And for my assault squad I just gave one of the PP guys a flamer instead to deal with hordes a little better.

How does that sound?

I didn't, since you didn't mark it down.

Because the re-roll to wound is absolutely awesome. A 50% increase to your kills is much better than 1 or 2 Plasma shots.

Move them once into range of the plasm gun or let them come to you. Remember that the Plasma Gun isn't a short range weapon but is actually medium range, and has a fair amount of reach.

Devs can't be everywhere at once and the power fist should be enough.

Proxy until you get a new one or order the bits?

If you want ablative wounds for snipers, bolters work better than BP/CCW. And Las/Plas work well against Wraithlords, heheh. But since you want snipers, I've given a suggested squad.

Flamers are great, but I think that you should remain focused. After all, Assault marines are there to be choppy, not burny. At least, these are.

Hope that helped.

That was helpful thanks.

I really like the lightning claws idea.

Hmmm...
The lascannon plasma still doesnt appeal to me.

Is the asscan really that great? Worth ordering the bit for?
