I'd go with list 1, it has more men, giving you more fire power nd more chance of survival in combat. Also it has land speeders which provide more versatiity for your army and you also have an extra power fist which may come in handy agins vehicles or monstrous creatures.

The second list can be brought down easier IMO, 3 dreadnoughts, 1 lucky lascannon shot on each and they go down. Also you have less marines and no land speeders in the second list which makes it harder for you to change your tactics if you need to.

However in the first list I would consider changing the Pred to an Annihilator with heavy bolter sponsons, and I would also consider taking a chapter master/captain for the "rites of battle" rule

I do like the first list. I play with a lot of rhinos, so I'm not really into a foot army. It's good that you are planning your list out. I would probably start off with a smaller army list, but if I had to recommend one of your lists, it would be list 1. From there you can add to it, in order to change things around. More mobile army, buy two or three rhinos. More shooty army, buy some Heavy Bolters to add to one or two of the units.

I currently play Space Wolves, Tau (been playing a lot of Tau lately) and trying to starting up Daemonhunters. But I might just get a small force of Black Templars. I plan to start with a 500 to 750 point base army. I have been looking into army lists myself. I do plan to buy the Codex first and then look at how they play now. They have the Templar Battlebox set on the GW site for $90.00, which is not bad. It's like buying a Command Squad, Tactical squad, and the 5 man unit, but you get the rhino for free.

You could do the same with the Marine box and use the Razorback as a rhino.

Good Luck

I prefer the second list - I'm a big Dreadnought fan.
