Looks good. Though I would deem some minor changes necassary. I would make the last tactical squad [missile launcher and plasma gun] as small as the limit will allow: sergeant and 4 marines. Then replace them with a unit of scouts, maybe with bolters and a heavy bolter or ccw's.
Also, I assume you have taken the 'Take the Fight to Them' trait? Otherwise your first tactical squad isn't acceptable. It would be helpful if you posted your traits please.
If you do take some scouts give the sergeant a teleport homer so they can link up with the Master or he'll be on his own.

Hope it helps.

ok here is an idea, i drop the last tac squad, and take a squad of 5 scouts with sniper rifles (always wanted to use them but never got round to it) and give my combat tac squad furious assault.

ohh and my traits are... "Take the Fight to them"
"No Mercy No Respite"
with my Major Drawback being "Flesh over Steel"

Yeah that seems like a good idea. Also, you don't seem to have too much anti-tank weaponry so how about making the Predator have Lascannons with the spare points.

Hope it helps.

yeah, but then that is a problem, i can either fire a twin linked las cannon, or a single one with limiited sight on the move. i know which one i would want. so if i choose the HB's i can still fire them (or somthing like that)

and as for the anti tank, i think i am working on that, im trying to work out how to fit a dev squad in instead of the LR

Well you could make a Devastator Squad with a Lascannon and 3 Missile Launchers or 2 Lascannons and 2 Missile Launchers. They seem to be the 2 most effective to weapons.
Then see how many points you have left and add to scouts if you do use them.

Hope it helps.

Looks good. I assume that in the Devastator squad they're Heavy Plasma Guns, not just Plasma Guns?
Also, why not swap the bolters in the second Tactical Squad for Chainswords. You've got enough ant-infantry fire-arms anyway.

Hope it helps.
