Default 1k army

we have a fun 1000pt game this weekend and i was thinking of thinking a small army need some opinons here

Marneus Calagar in power armour--250
Terminator Assualt squad all hammers and storm shields with LCR---440
5 man tact squad Sergeant with melta bombs in a razorback hb--150
5 man tact squad Sergeant with melta bombs in a razorback hb--150

we tend to play atleast 50% terrain and I know the only player who takes heavy tanks are my brother with demo tanks and my sister in-law with a monolith which i tend to ignore anyways the other guard player usally tries to take a basilisk and a lot of plain jane guardsman other mairne player takes a dreadnought and tons of tact squads a horde ork player and a mobile de player any ideas or tips would be nice

First off, this should be in the Army Lists section of the board, not the General Discussion. I've notified a Moderator.

Secondly, please, please, take out Calgar. I can't stand it when Special Characters are taken at such low point levels. There is no way in hell that he is going to be able to earn back his points and you've also put a fourth of your total points into a single model. Its just not tactically viable.

I find spending 700 points on one unit and 300 on meh troop choices... unwise.

Actually, Marneus Calgar and the Terminators are separate. But I do see where your'e coming from. I would suggest beefing up the Tactical Squads and perhaps attempting a quantity over quality approach. You're not going to get that far with this list- there is only 19 models...

Even in such small games, Melta is prevalent and cheep. Your vehicles aren't going to last that long. Same goes for the Razorback. Then you're basically at the mercy of your opponent. And what if you're playing objectives? You have two, minimized, underpowered squads to squat on objectives with. When they get killed the best thing you can hope for is a tie.

I concur with what's been said. You're putting all your eggs into one basket and if someone smashes those eggs...

You can still get fun stuff into a 1k list and not be so reliant on how one unit, and/or an HQ, perform in order to win the game.

Drop Marneus Calgar. You can..
1) Replace him with another Troop + Razor Bank and a basic HQ.
2) Or take the normal HQ, and a Dreadnaught in a Drop Pod.
3) Shave some points there by beefing one of those troop choices to 10 man, and breaking them into two teams of 5. That even gives you a free flamer or someting. I suggest buying the Missle Launcher...good for tanks and hords alike...frag and Krak..mmmm
