Default 1000 pts Black Templar list

Hi there!! I started collecting Black Templars and I tried to write my first army list.

HQ
Champion
Vow: Uphold the Honour of the Emperor

Marshall
Terminator armour
Assault Requiem
Mastercrafted Power weapon
Bionics

ELITES
Dreadnought
Venerable and Tank Hunter
Las Cannon

HEAVY
Predator Annihilator with bolters. Smoke launchers.

FAST
5x Assault Squad
melta bombs
storm shields

TROOPS
6x squad with pistol & ccw, 4 neophytes. Crusader marks, power weapon.
6x squad with pistol & ccw, 4 neophytes. Crusader marks, power weapon.

999 points.

My idea is to create a force that can rush to the enemy and win trough Close combat. The deep-striking assault marines will go tank hunting, helped by the Dreadnought and the Predator. The champion and the marshall will lead the infantry squads.

Suggestions and critics are welcome.
Thanks for the help.

I was just wondering, can a drednaught be equiped with an assault cannon, yet still be a "tank hunter"?

The Dreadnought has a las cannon instead of an assault cannon. This is why it works as a tank hunter...

if I were you, I'd drop the terminator armour on the marshall, make him a castellan, give him a bolt pistol, drop one man from each crusader squad, and drop the assault squad for two rhinos with smokes and extra armour.

if you have the points left, upgrade the power weapons to fists, get melta guns, and if you have any more, lose the bionics and give the castellan either a combat shield or an iron halo.

take the smokes off the predator. give it las sponsons.

lose tank hunter off the dread, lose venerable too, and leave it with an assault cannon and DCCW

give the castellan a power weapon instead of a power fist, to take advantage of his initiative.
you really don't need smoke on a predator, you'd only ever use it when you move a tank 12", which you don't want to do. If you pop smoke, you can't shoot.

I would never use a five man assault squad with meltabombs like that, but if it works for you, go for it.

Wise points. I think I may remove the crusader marks, too and so save about 33 points.

I want them as anti-tank support (meltabombs do the dirt work and shields assure they'll live longer). I feel that the Pred alone isn't enough.

So I can choose between:
1) drop them and use the points to get another Pred
2) Keep them as anti-infantry (so no meltabombs and no shield) and use the points left to give the Dreadnought lascannon, venerable and tank hunter.
3) Other ideas? Are bikes useful as anti-tanks? What about land speeders?

For a BT army, I would much rather field a bike squad with as many meltas as I could. Ideally, I'd want 5 bikes with 3 meltas, and a multi-melta attack bike.

Speeders are also good.
