Default Dread heavy codex marines

I have always loved the look of Dreads but have just never ever really taken more then 1 as my HQ(play space wolves), but ever since I saw the new codex I have wanted to make a dread heavy army. Seeing as there are so many dreads in the army I figured it would be fitting to have at least 2 tech marines with servitors. I would have liked 3 but that just means fewer dreads. I though about making them all have drops pods but that didnt make much sense seeing as how only my ironclads are CC oriented. So they will drop in the first wave and then the 2 tactical squads will drop in to back them up. I didn't give them power weapons cause I mostly want them to tie up other units and I figure they will get a kill or so anyways per combat. It is also a much more shooty list then I usually make. Tired of pure CC

I like Dread lists. I just don't want that many dreads right now.

I tried a slightly reduced list of this the other day. Played a vassal game at 1500 pts. I droped the 2 normal dreads and one of the tactical squads with pods. Performed brilliantly, only lost 1 ironclad and most of the drop pod squad. killed everything but 2 guys.

The good thing about this list is that buying all of it would only cost about 300$. Hell I could get it for maybe 2 hundred.

I plan on buying it shortly after christmass cause it is a fairly fun list to use. I would paint them army as all sorts of different chapters. Not sure why they would all be fighting together but something big clearly happened to get them working as one big happy family. That and it would break up the boring parts like painting the tactical squads if they are from like 4-5 different chapters per squad.
