Well I like the list but their are a few things that I would not do. First i would not take the command squad because with a veterans squad you can get more for less points. And if you do take the command squad the champion is a waste of points by far. Instead take a 6 man veterans squad with a power fist, 2 storm bolters and a meltagun plus a rhino transport to carry them and the Company Master. I would also suggest dropping the scout squad for something like 2 razorbacks for the tactical squads as i only use them for 1500 point battles or more. That leaves you with 5 points extra so you could upgrade the plasma cannon for a lascannon in the tactical squad.

Are you asking what to add in a 1500 point game?

Okay, the Command Squad is an immobile point sink asking to be shot to pieces. The Tactical Squads have short-range weapons that will never get used if you plan on firing the heavy weapons.

I suggest revision.

Well I am pretty sure he is going to combat squad the tactical squads so he can utilize the flamer and meltagun which is why i suggested razorbacks for them.

Am I right?

Yes I am using the Combat Squads rule. Also, there should be a Rhino in the list for the command squad, but I forgot to add it. ;D

And yes, what to use in 1500pts. I'm thinking 5 deathwing termies and a land raider.

That sounds like a good idea but i personally would go for more bodies like another squad of tactical marines with a powerfist and meltagun with a rhino to do some assaulting or a fully upgraded squad of ravenwing is always nice with a landspeeder and attack bike. It is really up to you.
