Default Army List Ideas

Hey all! I've been playing Space Marines for about a year now, and I've collected a 1500 point army. I'm trying to expand, as the guys at my club just play for fun, so we just bring an army between 1500 and 1750 points. I try to have a very versatile army, as I never know who's there. I need at least one more unit to even the odds, and I would like some input. Here you go:

-HQ
1 Captain with Relic Blade, Bolter w/ hellfire rounds, Iron Halo.

1 Jump Chaplain

-Troops

2 Tactical Squads with ML and Flamers

1 Scout Squad with Sniper Rifles and a Ml

-Fast Attack

1 5man Assault Squad with a Plasma Pistols and a power axe (accompany the Chaplain)

-Elites

1 Techmarine with Servo Harness

1 Dreadnought with Multi Melta and Storm Bolter

1 Terminator Squad with 2 chainfists

-Heavy Support

1 Land Raider with storm bolter and a hunter killer.

(Note: I also can downgrade the captain and take a Thunderfire Cannon if neccesary)
Thx! ;D

Well what I would do is increase the assault squad to ten men, or take another 5 man one.
You could also add in some heavy weapons somewhere, maybe another tactical squad but with heavy weapons or a devastator squad. Or like you suggested the thunderfire cannon I think could work well.

Overall though, if your playing mainly just for fun, I'd just take a unit that you really like and see how they fare.

Points wise an assault squad going from 5 to 10 man is more practical then a 2nd assault squad as it's 10 points cheaper and you can still combat squad it into 2 5 mans if you need more area coverage.

Course the 2nd set of 5 isn't allowed a power weapon to my knowledge so if you need a power weapon you'll have to shell out that 10+weapon cost to get it.

Thx guys, and because this kind of belongs in the same thread, what do you think would be a versatile 1000 point army list, because there is a tournament this Saturday. I know the majority of the armies are horde, but i need to be able to kill traitor marines too. Any Ideas, because that list is all I have
