Default rate my 1450pts space marine army again

Tactic; My rhino transports one of the tactical squads down one side of the field and my assault squad charges down the other. My remaining tactical squad stands at the front of the army covering my termies command squad. The bikes and chaplain ride into the front squad of my enemy and the assault squad supports them. Dreadnought 2 drop pods and supports the scouts or charges an enemy tank. Dreadnought 1 shoots his heart away and either murders any infiltrators etc. or charges the most threatening enemy.

HQ
Chaplain-bike 115pts
Terminator Command Squad-3 terminators, veteran sergeant power sword 122 pts

Elites
Dreadnought 1-smoke launchers, searchlight, twin-linked lascannon, heavy flamer 139pts
Dreadnought 2-smoke launchers 108pts

Troops

Tactical Squad 2-5 marines, veteran sergeant bolt pistol + chainsword-missile launcher, flamer, frag grenades 127pts

Er...
In short, not so good a list. I could probably come up with 101 ways to defeat it. But it is ok: I'll help you.

First, your command squad is not legal. The poins are wrong and they aren't attached to any characters (Commander, Chaplain, or Librarian), and it has to. Also, you can't take a bike witha termie squad (if you were to have this chaplain lead them). Also, it costs too many points and with no transport will get nothing done. If you want to have a good assaulty command squad, consider something like this:

Chaplain(Master of. Sanctity):116
Crozius Arcanum
Bolt Pistol
Terminator Honors

Command Squad:193
Veteran Sgt and 4 marines
Frags

Veteran Sgt:45
Power Fist
Bolt Pistol
Terminator Honors

Apothecary:40
Narthecium and Reductor,Bolt Pistol, CCW

3 marines w/ Bolt Pistols and CCWs
Rhino w/ Smoke Launchers and Extra Armor:58

Total of 309 points. I wouldn't use a command squad though: too expensive. I'll read through my codex later and come up with better alternatives.

BTW, never mix Missile Luanchers and Flamers-no good. I'll be on later to offer more tips.

1 small suggestion, use scouts, there a good unit, reasonable price, and with snipers they are pretty darn good

Never put smoke on something you want to fire at all possible time. REmeber if you fire smoke you can not fire any other weapons the same turn.

Yea, the dreads are also useless. First off, the Heavy Flamer is useless.

Give the Dread either ML and LC; AC and ML, or AC and CCW; other types are really that good/useful. I'd give the dead LC and Ml, considering you have few atni-tank units...
