lose the mc pw imo
leave the moderating to the moderators
if pro is the opposite of con, does that mean progress is the opposite of congress?
Ok, the list isn't written all that clear mind - i dig the presentation, but your heavy support is actually a attachment to the hq (or get it a JO) and the elites are splotchy.
oh, you also mean 10x ratlings for that cost etc etc.
To reduce cost /a few pointers:
If you are drop trooping you can't charge. the first thing to go should be the master crafting on the power sword, and the krak grenades etc.
I don't mind the power sword - on it's own it's so cheap it's not a poor choice, but ask yourself :with 4x plasma guns, what are you going to charge? If charged, you are guard. You are fairly dead. Seriously, your laspistol is much better off for the meagre change of a boltgun - double your shots, increase strength to 4. it's alot more usefull.
Another thing : Why are you paying x points per squad to get them into vets ? get a second vet squad (doctrine: veterans), if not a 3rd (ratlings can't drop) and equip with plasmas / meltas, with their BS of 4. Cheaper, and better.
I'd also get a couple of dogsbodies in your units - no equipment, so you can take them off as casualties if given slight attention, and you can spend your points on more units to spread out the weaponry - in case you scatter and die. remember, only 1 in 3 hit.
To spread out the points, get some remnant squads too.
Reccomended list, taking into account what you want to do:
Doctrines : Drop Troops, Veterans, Special Weapon Squads, (And close order drill as it's free and you'll all be touching anyway?)
HSO with plasma pistol & pwr sword (well, you wanted one), 2x melta (assault to go with the officers weapons)
2x Special weapons squad with demo charge and 2x melta guns (lascannons can't drop and fire in the same turn)
approx 225 (being vague deliberately)
JO with boltgun, 3x plasma
squad with plasma
squad with plasma
6x remnants and plasma
JO) with boltgun, 3x plasma
squad with plasma
squad with melta
6x remnants with melta
approx 740 (being vague deliberately)
Vet sgnt, boltgun, 5x troopers 3x plasma gun
Vet sgnt, boltgun, 5x troopers, 3x plasma gun
Vet sgnt, storm bolter, 5x trooper, 3x melta guns
close to 1,000 points. maybe another melta / bits and bobs.
Good luck, and good hunting.
