Default 1750 Troop Heavy drop pod list

Hq:
Kantor - 175pts
Libby - 140pts

Elite:
Sternguard x 10 (combi melta/combi plasma/PF/ Drop Pod/ Locator beam) - 330pts

Troops:
Tactical squad x 10 (melta/ PF/ DP (locator beam)) - 245
Tactical squad x 10 (melta/ PF/ DP) - 235
Tactical squad x 10 (Flamer/ Plasma Pistol/ PF/ DP) - 245
Tactical squad x 10 (Flamer/ PF/ DP) - 230

Scout Squad x 5 (Bolters) - 75
Scout Squad x 5 (Snipers) - 75


Just thought it'd be fun to play a boots on ground heavy list, with a max of 12 possible scoring units its going to be pretty hard hitting. Basic plan would be both scout squads infiltrate and start harassing, first turn Stern + 2 tactical squads drop (both melta) and try to finish off armour speedily. Pedro and Libby join sternguard so that they both hit hard in combat and can gate out if need be, libby second power would depend but on MEQ AP3 flame template is probably best, on demons or the like null zone for those pesky invunerable saves, thoughts?

Its looking like a good solid list.
However I'm unsure about the amount of points invested in the Sterngaurd, they still doe like normal marines. How effective do you find them? If you find them effective they go for it.

The troops section I like alot, I do love a good load of marines, melta's killing off tanks and armour, flamers taking out opposing troops.

Though, if your all down one end, who will be there to capture the objectives in your end?
Or are you just going to try and eliminate the enemy?

Don't be fooled into thinking that Sternguard are a serious close combat unit, even with Pedro around. I think that Sicarius would be more characterful and better in a troop-heavy army like yours.

i realise pedro won't make them close combat gods but making them scoring kinda adds to the whole 'as many scoring units' as possible thing
