Default need help with 145 pts

hi I'm starting a new space marine army at the moment

the problem I'm having is
my 750 pt list doesn't have any muscle its just infantry (145 Pt's is my assault squad at current)

Ive been thinking about a predator annihilator with lascannon sponsons
but i think thats to cheesy, but other than that I'm rather clueless ???

any input at all would help

ps i think this is the right forum im not sure tho ???

What else in in the list? It's hard to pick something to complement the rest of the army when we don't know what's in it.

It's infantry, I know that, but what are they armed with? How many are there? How many squads and what are they equipped with? Things like that are needed to make a really good choice with those last points.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

the rest of the list is

5 man tactical squad in a razorback vet Sgt power fist and bolt pistol and 1 marine with meltagun
(hooks up with chaplain and destroys things)
chaplain w/ crozius and power fist frags and krak nades

and a 10 man tactical squad in a rhino with plasma gun and lascannon vet Sgt w/ bolt pistol and power weapon

also the traits are
suffer not the alien to live and we stand alone

A predator with Autocannon and sponson Las would be good, But id go for another tactical squad or even a scout squad with missile Launcher and sniper rifles.
Another Note, Take the LAS out of mobile squads and put it in a static 5 man squad, Basically the lacannon is useless as you need to advance to use the plasmagun!

Land speeders; mobile, anti tank / anti infantry, can take objectives late in the game.

Solid config, but I've never liked the Razorback.

Auuggh! Drop that Powerfist! A Bolt Pistol is all an Independant Character should need to back up his power weapon.

Bump the Power Weapon into a Powerfist, and throw Smoke Launchers on the Rhino; otherwise, great config.

I think a Preadator would do you very nicely; triple Lascannons will reduce nearly anything to dust and charged particles, which you could use; the list seems to lack anti-tank otherwise.

I think the ten man squad is weak, it either stands still (wates the rhino) or moves (wastes the lascannon)

perhaps droping the heavy weapon (gasp) and maybe try a combi weapon on the vet sarge, pop them out of the rhino and shoot crap, then assault next turn, or whatever.

also dropping the powerfist on the chaplian is a good idea, he doesn't need it (but a powerfist in bthe squad he rolls with is always a good idea )

Preds are always fun, but I doubt there will much anti tank at the level of points your playing, so a dread woul work pretty well, and they look cool (and have a funky textured base). Land Speeders are good, but after two turns they will be shot down (usually) as bolters can harm them, so yeah.

But the best choice is a pred, but at 750pts, its not the only thing you can pick
