Default 1500 Mechanized list

Hey all,

Since I can afford a Land Raider Iíve been trying to build a list to include it. This is probably the best combination I could come up with so any comments would be appreciated, especially since Iíve only recently come back.

1500pts Space Marine List

HQ:
Space Marine Chaplin
Terminator Armor
130pts
Standard commander, will ride with the Terminators in the Land Raider and will add more CC punch

Elites:
5 Terminators
Standard Gear
Mounted in Land Raider Crusader
450pts
The main component of the armored spearhead. Will plough through towards the enemy lines into close combat

Troops:
10 Space Marines
Missile Launcher, Plasma Gun
Mounted in Rhino
215pts

10 Space Marines
Missile Launcher, Plasma Gun
Mounted in Rhino
215pts

10 Space Marines
Missile Launcher, Plasma Gun
Mounted in Rhino
215pts
My objective grabbers. Will go around, taking and holding points.

Heavy Support:
Predator
Autocannon, 2 Heavy Bolters
85pts

Predator
Autocannon, 2 Heavy Bolters
85pts

Predator
Autocannon, 2 Heavy Bolters
85pts
The trio of Predators will act as ďescortsĒ for the Land Raider. They are the second component of the spearhead.

Total = 1480pts

My main concern is the apparent lack of anti tank in the list. I have seen someone use two Vindicators in conjunction with the Land Raider so Iím thinking of switching my Predators out for it instead. If anyone can suggest better than I would be more than willing to try it as long as it fits the mechanized theme.

Default Re: 1500 Mechanized list

If you want more anti-tank, you should add multi-meltas to the Land Raider Crusaders since the upgrade is cheap and good. Also if you aren't getting digital weapons for your Chaplain, then you might as well get Cassius, as he is almost strictly better than a Terminator Chaplain. Also I think Assault Terminators belong in Land Raiders, not shooty ones. Lastly, get at least one flamer, otherwise you'll never shoot Pathfinders or Scouts out of cover. Overall, it seems like a decent list with the important stuff right.
