Default 1500 Iron Snakes Drop Pod assault

Thought I'd post up the list I'm working on for my Iron Snakes Marines (well, the list tocome once I'm finished with the standard footlsogger list I have on te painting table now)

Traits
-Purity above all (may upgrade veteran sergeants to apothecaries)
-Trust your battle brothers (may buy true grit and counter assault for some units)
-We Stand Alone (no allies)
-Eye to Eye (limited fast attack stuff)

H.Q.

_Codicier 135
__Veil of Time
__Terminator Armour

_Terminator Command Squad 215
__4 Termis
__2 Assault Cannons
__Tank Hunters


The termis role is the same as before, only this time they’ll have the libby tagging along. I would have liked to upgrade the Libby to Epistolery and take fear of darkness, but there just weren’t enough points.

Elites

_Veteran Squad 310
__10 Marines
__True Grit
__Furious Charge
__Drop Pod
__Power Weapon
___Veteran Sergeant
___Power Weapon
___Apothecary
___Teleport Homer

Not quite the combat monster they were in the last list, this unit is basically included for a fluff/theme perspective. They’re still basically the combat hammer of the army

_Dreadnought 165
__Lascannon
__Missile Launcher
__Drop Pod

_Dreadnought 165
__Lascannon
__Missile Launcher
__Drop Pod

Able to fire on the turn they arrive these should hopefully dish out the majority of my anti tank firepower.

Troops

_Tactical Squad 255
__10 Marines
__True Grit
__Drop Pod
__Meltagun
__Veteran Sergeant
___Powerfist
___Teleport Homer

_Tactical Squad 255
__10 Marines
__True Grit
__Drop Pod
__Meltagun
__Veteran Sergeant
___Powerfist
___Teleport Homer

I'm thinking of the possibility of loosing 2 telelport homers and downgrading one dreadnought to assault cannon and missile launcher. I'd then have enough points to make it a veteran tank hunter. The dread wouldn't be qwuite as efficient at punching through tanks (still have a missile launcher and a pumped up assault cannon though) but it would offer greater flexibility as it could also fulfill an anti infantry role. Any thoughts?

Thanks
