Default 400 pts. first list

This is my first list and these models are all i have but here it is:

HQ
Captain, bolt pistol, power weapon, melta bombs, auspex, bionics
Joins tac squad 2 and rushes.
ELITE
Dreadnought, t/l heavy bolter, heavy flamer,extra armor, searchlight
Troop killer, only vehicle so I added extra armor.
TROOPS
Tactical squad 1
1 sarge bolter, 3 bolters, 1 missile launcher
these guys find cover and support. missile launcher should be enough for any armor in a 400 point game
Tactical squad 2
1 sarge bp/ccw, 3 bolters, 1 flamer.
Join with captain and charge.
TOTAL: 400
feel free to tear it apart.

Hi TwitchTwitch,

Just a general question- are you playing the full Combat Patrol rules? If so, I believe you are restricted from taking a dreadnought (combined armor values are too high) and limited to 2W on characters.

I thought captains had 2 wounds. And with the dreadnought I guess not.

Oops...for some reason I thought we were talking about a Chapter Master. My bad. :-X

For Space Marines, the allowed vehicles I believe are rhinos, razorbacks, and similar armor valued vehicles (but not whirlwinds IIRC).

The list looks fun to me, but it feels like it's missing. Perhaps a Landspeeder or Attack Bike...something to give you some decent speed and range would be nice.

I may be wrong, but i'm pretty sure dreadnaughts cannot have t/l heavy bolters in the 4th ed. rules.

They can't - unless you're playing DA, if I remember right... but vanilla Marines certainly can't.

I would add a rhin to get your troops around faster, and it doesn't matter that much if it gets blown up, it's just 50pts.

If the rhino gets blown up the troops could die. Anyway you look at it casualties aren't good. A rhino is good, but take something good to give it support fire to move up the field like a predator. A rhino isn't absolutely necassary in that small of a list, but if your opponent plays Eldar and LOVES starcannons or also plays Space and has something with an autocannon you need a rhino or your troops will never get into action.
