Default 2000 point list looking for help

Ok, so later today I have a game against a friend of mine, he'll most likely be using Nurgle LatD or Necrons... I'm not sure if it'll be a 3 way, but if it is the other player will either be Templars or Guard and maybe even some Space Wolves if my other friend wakes up before we start (I know this is a wide range of armies, so bear with me)...

Chapter Master
Terminator Armor
Master Crafted Power Weapon
130 points

Master of Sanctity
Jump pack
Terminator Honors
135

Troops 1-3
10 marines
2 plasma guns
Vet Sarge, powerfist
205 each

Troops 4+5
8 marines
2 melta guns
Vet Sarge, powerfist
205 each

Terminator squad
6 terminators
2 assault cannons
280 points

Assault Marine squad
10 marines
2 plasma pistols
Vet sarge, powerfist
260 points

1835 points total

I have no idea what to spend the last 165 points on, as it's not enough for a new squad, or anything else for that matter, so maybe I'll just beef out my existing squads... I need C&C please!

I actually have a ran a list almost identical to that. Except I broke up the assault jump pack squad into 2, 6 man units with 1 plasma each.

The only thing that I see you're missing is long range anti-tank support.

Maybe a squad with a lascannon, or a 6 man dev squad with 2 missile launchers.

Otherwise, the list worked VERY well for me.

How's the list now? I really want to keep the assault marines together because of the Chaplain so they can all benefit, but I still think I might be missing something... C&C please!

Have you thought about using two ligtning claws on your commander isntead. That was he gets to re-roll all his to wound rolls instead of just one to hit roll? Same points cost and you get another attack

Looks pretty good other than that but there are so few models for so many points..

Keep the Assault marines together, that will be better than splitting them up.

That dread will be a good addition and will muder tanks.

and I dont think you added those up right

130
+135
___
265
+205
____
470
+205
____
675
+280
____
955
+260
____
1215
+165
____
1380

so to get to 2000 you have a lot more points to spend

^^^Your not counting all 5 troop slots

I like the list, although I would give your Chapter Master a storm bolter (your at 1995 points right now), but thats because I never really liked a HQ w/o a second weapon....

Sword, Farshot is right, I have 5 troops. Also, I didn't plan on making my commander an offensive character (that's what my chaplain is for). ;D

Farshot, I completely forgot to add the storm bolter, but that was always my intention

Thanks for all the feedback guys, I really appreciate it!
