Default 2 questions please help

Is 46 troops enough in a Black Templar army or should I add more? I am also runnind a Dred, pred (TL LC), Vindicator, land speeder tornado, and a LRC.

Also I have 30 more points to use should I give my dread TL LC with tank hunter skill, or get 3 more neophytes. I think I would get more for poins by putting them on the dread. Your thoughts?

46 troops is enough for up 1500pts games especially with those support options.

Tank Hunters would be a nice skill to take on that dread, but what is its other weapon?

Adn post you whole list so we can help you out some more.

A bike squad would do well for your forces. For an extra 30 pts you can get the Accept Any Challenge, No Matter the Odds ;D. Remember 3+ to hit always in combat.

Your land speeder cannot have a teleport homer. Ever.

Plus it should not. Teleport Homer isnt that great as long as you strike you termies more than 6" from the board edge scatter doesnt really matter.

Teleport homers are fantastic.

Scatter distance for Deep strike is 2D6, so 2-12". That's a BIG distance, with an average of 7". To deep strike safely you want to be more than 12" from the board edge and any unit, or have a teleport homer.
