I am not a fan of the marshall load out or the command squad. I am not confident that infiltrating a single expensive unit all by itself is a good idea. I think you'd be better served by a more reasonably priced SB squad or better yet another assault squad. That and you want to keep your marshall alive. Tossing him out front by himself is a poor way to do this.
The marshall himself is pretty spendy. I am not convinced Artificer armor is worth it. You also gave him two shooty weapons. An orb and a Stormbolter. Since it appears you want to stick him in i'd drop the SB for a pistol and for the few times he shoots he can just throw the orb. Termi honors at this point are probably extra. And frags are a must.
For the Assault squad I'd drop the meltas, powersword and flamers. Get a powerfist, and a pair of plasma pistols. This unit should be hunting vulnerable troops and supporting the rest of your infantry. the powerfist and plasma pistols will allow them to deal with the odd vehicle. The Fist is a must since it is the only thing that can hurt a dread or T8 MC. Flamers excell at killing low toughness troops that your chainswords will cut down already. The plasma is cheap insurance against vehicles and big nasties.
With the points I just saved you and by knocking off a few neophytes formt he crusader squads you have neough points to get a cheap chaplain. I'd give him a jumppack and let him lead an assault squad.

Good luck in your tourny.

I've decided to change a lot in this list, with the possibility of taking out the Assault squad, and Command squad, and changing a bunch of it around.

Thing is, around here, the extra attacks from the Neophytes work Wonders.

2k and no Chappy? What about LRC?

I would keep the Marshal w/ a Bolt Pistol, a Power Sword, Arti Armor, Frag Gren. Then add in a Reclusiarch...

I agree with the chappy. Drop the bikes, lessen up your marshall wargear and get a cheap chappy to lead the assault squad.

LRC is a no no though. tourny lists are usually pretty balanced and most balanced lists will have a way to deal with it reasonbly well.

Or I could Drop the Bikes, The Neophytes, and the Terminator Honors and take some Assault Cannon Land Speeders.... I just dont know what I want to do....

2 Days till and I still dont have a definitive list. Though I might end up staying home... again, this time because my brother might be coming to town... But he lives in Omaha, where the Tourny is... It all confuses me...

[hr]

Final List, I couldnt get the Assault Squad done in time. So here it is -

HQ -
Marshal - Power Weapon, Storm Bolter, Holy Orb, Termy Honors, Iron Halo, Termy honors, Frags - 136
Emperor's Champion - Accept Any Challenge - 140
Master of Sanctity - Bolt Pistol, Artificer Armor, Holy Orb - 141

TROOPS -
2 15 man squads, Power Fist and Meltagun - 235 each
2 6 Man Las/plas - 117 each
1 10 man - Power Fist, Melta - 185

FAST ATTACK -
3 Landspeeder Tornadoes - 240

HEAVY SUPPORT -
Vindicator - Power of the Machine - 155
Predator Annihilator - Lascannon sponsons, extra armor - 150
Predator Annihilator - Heavy Bolter Sponsons, extra armor - 135

For the most part it looks pretty solid. 11 scoring units is nothing to scoff at, either.

Yeah, I've always had a problem with getting enough scoring units on the table... and then I started playing my IG(11 with just my troop choices....) And I've started to get better at more scoring units.

The only problem I have with my own list is the lack of transport, but thats my own fault for not owning any Rhinos. I guess I'll have to get one or two if I win > >

[hr]

Lack of Transport killed me in my games, with my squads getting shot to hell and back... My Mechanized list would have done great in this tourney.

I won the first game... and got pummeled in my second two. Got good sportsmanship scores from two guys, and bad from the third(who only did it because everyone was giving him bad because he WAS NOT fun to play, and just stole all of the fun out of the game. I'm going to move everything just so I can shoot you, and take out two guys, and you cannot shoot me back... He also gave a friend of mine a bad one, and that cost him first)

But, on the bright side, I think I'm going to start a sisters army.
