Default 2000 points BT list

Hi there!! I've been working on my list to expand it to 2000 points. This is the result:

HQ: 385
Marshall
pistol, terminator honors, frags, power weapon, crusader seals
Emperor's Champion
vow: accept any challenge, no matter the odds
Reclusiarch
terminator armor, assault requiem, frags

TROOP: 622
5 initiates with lascannon
5 initiates with lascannon
9 initiates with frags and power fist (with the champion)
on Rhino with smokes and extra armor
9 initiates with frags and power fist (with the marshall)
on Rhino with smokes and extra armor

ELITES 368
5 assault terminators (1 with thunder hammer/shield) (with the reclusiarch)
(on Land Raider Crusader)
Venerable dreadnought with furious charge, heavy flamer, smokes and extra armor

FAST 210
5 assault marines with power weapon and 2 plasma guns
Land Speeder Tornado

HEAVY 415
Land Raider Crusader
Predator Annihilator with laser sponsons and extra armor


The idea of the army is to reach for cc as soon as possible while the 2 lascannon squads and the Pred support with anti-tank fire.
Hope that all those vehicles (6) will be too many to be stopped.
Criticism and suggestions welcome.

Looks good. The list is fairly balanced and well spread. The only possibly problematic thing I can see are the assault termies in the LRC. They could potentially sway many battles for you, most armies would gun for the LR instantly and say a Tau player using Piranhas especially in teams with fusion could destroy the LRC and kill everyone in it automatically in one round of shooting. Thats a ton of points lost quickly. It can work though especially with all the other armor on the field and other threats its just a lot of points put into one little area.

There is not a whole lot else to do with the assault termies other than that. Im not a fan of them even if they do fit in with the BT style. You could use Regular termies and walk them across the field with assault cannons to draw fire and split it between the walking ranged termies and the LRC and ranged termies are still good in cc. Just my oppinion though the assaults are not really wrong as they are.

Other than that looks great.

only thing is that you have 10 marines + a HQ in each rhino, making a total of 11 models. But since your every day rhino can only transport 10, you need to drop one marine in each group!

Oooooppsss :-[ . I calculated the points for 9 marines, but I wrote 10. Now fixed

Vash113, I know this risk; I took them because I wanted an anti-termies unit (assault termies are good in killing normal termies) and because it will be an interesting challenge to make them arrive alive!! They are also cool models and really fluffy!!

List looks good, but you can't give a model in termie armor frag grenades. But if you put him in the LRC he won't need them.
