    How about some Dreadnoughts?

    I'd also suggest putting some Lightningclaws in the 2 squads with Cyclones, one pair in each perhaps. Another thing worth considering is adding some Thunderhammers to the various squads

    I think dreadnoughts die way too easily and the reason I did not put lightning claws in the squads with cyclones is because they are suppose to shoot. So I can also use the storm bolters and if they do get too close I can then I still have power fists and a power sword. Does anyone use the thunder storm combo?

    My Deathwing army have a very similar structure as yours in regard to the squad size (5-6 models) I like to change one powerfist in each squad for a Thunderhammer (not only for the diversity, but they can be pretty good too).

    The reason I suggest the lightning claws in the units with cyclones, are that those units will be prime target for assault and it could pay of to have one more Terminator that strike at initiative value if assaulted. You say they are supposed to shoot, but when playing that won't work. Every unit in a Deathwing army must help out, e.g you can't afford to stand still more than one round top.

    I do agree on the point that Dreadnoughts die quickly (mine are usually gone in round 1) but they do soak up some enemy heavy weapons fire, saving Terminators with evey hit taken.

    Yes I suppose you are right. The thing with dreadnoughts to is well I can give them a missile launcher and a lascannon but they aren't as reliable as another unit of terminators. I see what you mean with making the squads able to do more than one thing kind of making them "good-all-roun" instead of having specific roles. So I think I will swao out 2 of the regular power fists and storm bolters for 2 terminators with lightning claws(1 per squad). Besides my whole army can move and fire everything to it's max potential.

    One thing to remeber is that I do have sergeants in the squads striking at initiative so 2 models desinged for cc and 2 models designed for shooting and 1 just to be there per squad.

    I take it your HQ is riding in the Landraider? You could give the Sgt in that squad a teleport homer and deepstrike in the unit with assaultcannons. Deepstriking also works pretty good with units that have heavyflamer, atleast when playing vs Toughness 3 opponents with poor armour.
