Wait, yeah, they are a 5 man squad.

The other 5 I have are assault terminators.

I like the "un-standard" first two lists with bunches of landraiders. That would be a tough list for many opponent's to beat. I opted for B because the vindicator fits in with your "armor" theme and can escape punishment by hiding behind the larger land raiders.

Personally, I would drop the assault squad, take the two las/plas squads and stick with the 3x landraiders and vindicator. Blow any extra points you have into trying to snag more armor, or bulking out your crusader squads. That would be a list I would take (if I had access to 3 land raiders!).

Just some ideas, they're all solid but the last one is too... conventional. Too standard, mix things up a bit and throw your opponent's for a loop.

Would it be bad if I said that the first 2 lists are "Standard" for some of my opponents to face?

I concur. List B, but drop the assault marines for a couple of las/plas squads. I'd also drop the existing rhino for the single las/plas squad. That will give you 3 small troop units to help take/hold objectives.

I also like the vindi. it can either hide behind the LRCs or go out front to give them a cover save.

Also, seriously consider a few neophytes for Helbrechts squad. They are excellent for soaking powerweapon/powerfist attacks. You have room in the LRC for them so may as well.
