Default Dread Drop 1500 List;

I am worrying about my lack of reliable anti tank in my Salamander force so here is a little re work based on Drop Podding Dreads;

Lysander;
10 Marines; Plas, Missile
10 Marines; Plas, Multi Melta
10 Marines; Flamer, Missile
10 Marines; Melta, Multi Melta
Vindicator;

Dread; Multi Melta, Heavy Flamer - Drop Pod
Dread; Assault Cannon - Drop Pod
Ironclad Dread; Heavy Flamer, Melta - Drop Pod

A slow advance with the Tac Squads, Lysander and the Vindicator. The Plas Missile squa utalising Lysanders Bolster Defence rule to hold my nearest objective.

The Melta and Ironclad Dreads dropping first turn right in amongst enemy armour to wreak havok, the Assault Cannon Dread arriving later with its longer ranged weapons to support my infantry in a close ranged fire fight.

What do you think? Any suggestions?

Oh wow. I see that you like dreads. : Theres a couple things i want to say.
1- I dont see why your taking lysander as your hq when you have no termies. To me he seems like a comander to take only with termies with his special rules and all.

2-I know that this a given but even for a marine player your going to be out numbered troop wise and espesially vehicle wise. Im not one to really be able to critise you on this since my marine list has only one predator at 2000pts. i do like how you have spent mosst of your points on tact marines.

3-I dont know about having so many dreads. They're not really that tough and with the points your paying, especially with the drop pod, you might wanna drop one dread and lysander and you might have the points to buy a second ironclad.... maybe.... i dont have my codex with me since it decided to phase out of reality but you should be good for a second ironclad.

4-Might want to give your commader some friends, he might blown to high hell pretty quick if not. Plus, think of how lonely he would be without friends.
(when i say drop lysander i mean to replace him with a cheeper choice)

With this kind of list, I would drop Lysander for Vulkan.

The reasons for taking Lysander were;

1. He can Bolster Defences, making my close objective holding unit much more durable.
2. His Bolter Drill rule will really help my units in a close ranged Fire Fight.
3. He is probably the hardest character in close combat that Marines have [for character killing at least], almost impossible to kill and S10 for Instant Killing enemy characters.

Hestan will allow me to re roll those important Melta shots though but im not sure if i need that with the Dreads deep striking anyway.

Reasons You might want to replace Lysander

1-Expensive like crazy
2-No other termies in your list
3-Bolster defences need cover already at the area to work
4-Vulkans still a pretty damn tough guy
5-fluff wise its wierd(personal choice)
6-You dont really have any other cc units in your list
7-Yes re rolling those melta shots is dam good

Not really sure why you would want him with Termies unless you are Deep Striking him. His Bolter Drill best benefits Tac Marines/Heavy Bolter Devs or Sternguard IMO.

I may try the list with both characters and see how it goes.

I have a converted Salamander version of Lysander done already though so i guess thats my reason 4 :P
