I like your list...but you realise that the plasma will be overkill against most of the orks and probably the entirety of the elf army, right? Useful against the crons, but meltas would deny WBB...I'd at least change the infiltrating tacticals to meltas, given that they're likely to be on the move anyway, matching their bolter range to the meltas, denying WBB, and functioning as acceptable anti-tank weapons...failing that, you'll have to get some antitank as your very next choice when you go above the 500 point level.

Thanks.... I will change the Plasma to Melta, and for the Plasma Pistols on the Assault should change to Flamers? I think that next point choice is 750 so I probably get a Pred or a Dread.

5x Space Marines: 115 pts
2x Melta-Guns
Infiltrate
