I know this could and probably should go on the army list forums, but this is more of a Space Marine thing. Anyway, my GWS is going to make a tournement. And I need help on my 1000 point army. This is what I was going to field.
Chaplin with Plasma pistol, about 70-50 points of wargear. 140 points
Dreadnought-TLLC, missle launcher 135 points
9 Space Marines-1 with missle launcher 145 points
9 Space Marines-1 with missle launcher 145 points
Predator-TLLC, Heavy bolters 130 points
Total: 695 points
This means that I have 305 more points to spend. I dont really know what to give my army right now. I am thinking about Assault Squad of Terminators. I need help on what I should put in next.
Grrrr, sorry about the three posts. It gave me an error, so I clicked it post 3 times. Is it possible to deleat my topics? Sorry for the mistake though, if MODs see this, deleat the other 2 please.
Yes, this thread should be in the army list forum with everyone else's space marine lists.
What is the overall strategy of your army? It looks pretty shooty so far. What's the wargear on the chaplain, exactly? If he's in termie armor, then yes you will probably want more terminators.
Do you already have these minis? I'll assume you do, so you're stuck with the predator.
I would rearrange your marine squads into two 5man LC squads, and a bigger squad containing a veteran sergeant to screen the others. Speaking of, you need more troops for comp points(at least 400).
The dread looks very nice, but the chaplain is too expensive for such a small army. how'd you spend 70pts on wargear?!? They're supposed to be cheap! In any case, make a counter-assault force based around him. A command squad or termie squad. I think regular termies would be fine for you, they can add to the hail of bolter fire the rest of your army is 'gonna be pumping out, plus the models are cheaper to come by.

OK just for giggle, comments:
Chaplain: I hope you dont hve termie armour - it is a waste inless you are playign about 2000 points
I would ditch the plasma pistol your chaplain is there as a charge monster, shooting the PP will ose your charge bonuses which are probably more valuable, not to mention the risk of exploding guns, a bolt pistol is a far more attractive option
The wargear for the chaplain should be: termie honours, bolt pistol, on top of his rosarius and CA that is all he needs
Your dread is fine although I hope you give it smoke and extra armour
your troop squads are hunky dory, I would not reduce the numbers as whilst this will give you more heavy weapons shots, it will make them more prone to moral checks and less effective in combat
Your pred has an identity crisis, is he killing tanks (hence the las cannon) or infantry (hence the HBs), I would strip off the HBs and apply the LC side sponsons
Equip with EA and smoke and you have the best tank hunter in the game
What esle to add?
Well for a start I am always tempted by Whirlwinds, they are less effective against Marine, CSM and Necron armies (which is most of what you will face in a tourney) but against any other army they are brilliant.
(that should add about 100 points)
For the remaining 200 points I would be tempted by a scout squad (9 scouts and a vet sgt) just standard scouts although the sgt could use a power weapon, attach the chaplain to this squad and you got a nasty close combat squad. And a land speeder - I know it is feeble but give it a multi metla and it can do 2 things, 1. take out tanks, and 2, contest table quaters
Alternatley add more marines
Everything you have been told is a lie!
No matter what army it is, if it's an army list it goes in the army lists forum.
*kicks to said forum*
Ze titles yez...
When in doubt,
Smite.<SilverMane> I would trust BID with my life
<SilverMane> HEIL BID!
<Adrian-> BiD is Omnipotent; All Knowing, All Powerful!
<Scary_Troopers> I see you as an optimist, GT. : D
But what of the midgets!?

I just wanted to echo some support of Chredeaine, he makes some nice sugguestions. For the termies I would say no not in a 1000 point game just not worth it. The scouts is a really good idea I like it, its hard and real assualt marines with jumpbacks into a 1000 point game so I like the idea of the scouts, with the chaplian for padding it should work well. Build your chaplian like forementioned its the best imo. More marines would also be good along with the LC's on the pred. I dunno if he will have the points for the whirlwind another squad of marines would be nice, the scouts and LC side arms, but if you do that maybe the best idea.
