- i opted for Daemonic Possession on the predator instead of mutated hull to keep it moving and shooting more. i expect it to see a lot of attention, i just need it to draw fire and hopfully pop a tank or a few transports.
- really want to see the bikers get in next to a tank or a heavy weapon squad and start sewing discord first turn. i really hope to kill a a command squad or a tank and keep them alive.
- also i opted for a predator over a havok squad with stealth for a more mobile assault feel.
:DIT:: I priced it out from scratch, including paint, glue, green stuff, etc, roughly $470.
Give the lord meltabombs for that occasional tank. Otherwise if the melta misses your screwed. The pred. is anything but a mobile assault vehicle. You put lascannon sides so sorry my friend, but if you move it you can ony fire the turret mounted weapon. I'd opt for a havoc squad because you can have more heavies and you can give em' tank hunter and/or infiltrate. If you give em' infiltrate then you can set them up after the enemy has already placed his armor. Your troop squads MUST have either a powerfist or meltabombs. Otherwise they are much less versitile. Don't forget to turbo boost the bikers for some turn 2 fun. Also make sure you make the lord leave the raptor squad before assaulting so they can use their hit/run attack to get charge bonuses. Also if you want it to be less expensive browse through ebay for some cheapo models. That's all I can think of at the moment hope it helped. :cool:

i think that dropping the pred and replacing it with missile armed, tank hunting havocs will be very useful. The marine squads need powerfists instead of powerswords to cause more damage, and could do with lascannons instead of missile launchers. Don't bother giving the 1st raptor squad a champ, as the lord will make up for it, and you might want to cut the size of each squad of raptors by a model or two. Those points could be used for another small squad of marines, or 3 squads of 7/8 rather than 2 squads of 10. Your choice really. You need your raptors to swoop around, harassing them and slaughtering them where they are weakest, but keep them ready to deflect/defend against incoming assaults on the slower part of your army - your list could have minor problems due to the smallish amounts of troops, but don't worry: you should be fine.
I don't whether you have just started NL or not, but good luck!
Apathy is the greatest enemy of all.
