2x tac squad +flamer + 1x heavybolter + 1x missilelauncher 410
scout squad + 1guy x 5xsniper rifle + 1 heavy bolter 98
already thanks guys
A basic Captain, is he really worth it without upgrades?
The Predator without any upgrades too, just tell me that you expect it to die. If thats the case you should invest the points somewhere else.
I take it the Tactical squads will be split into combat squads, one with a flamer, one with a missile launcher and one with a heavy bolter.
Overall it seems quite an 'alright' list, with the sternguard's AP3 Rounds handling the chaos marines/ Crisis suits save.
But if faced with Hammerheads or Terminators, theres not a lot in the list to take them out.
Give it a try and see what happens.

as mentioned, not having enough to deal with heavy vehicles, nor 2+ armour would be a serious crutch.
Personally, to address this, I would drop either the whirlwind or scouts, and put all lascannons on the pred, or drop the pred and replace the whirlwind with a vindicator. Using the remaining points, you could either give scouts more members and/or equipment (camo cloaks?) or give the sternguard some combi-meltas and/or powerfist
That's one killpoint less that your army offers, while covering the anti-tank and 2+ armour gap.
Also, you run two minimum squads of sternguard. Might as well run one full squad, with the option of combat squading them each game. Small difference, but thats a further kill point reduced, should you choose not to combat squad for a particular game.
Sound advice, being a Tau and Chaos man I could only give my point of veiw, not really any solutions. :p
Also, a captain without any upgrades is a waste. Remember that you paid all those points for a model with a higher weapon skill, ballistic skill, initiative, and number of attacks. For him to run around with a bolt pistol and a chainsword is a waste of those points. If you only took the captain because the 1 HQ is mandatory, then grab a chaplain instead - free power weapon at the very least, not to mention the ability to re-roll in CC.
okee i think what i need to change drop scouts for las cannons on the pred take a chaplian and if i have points to spare speeders with multi-melta's
this will stand up to every thing i think
thanks for all the help if there is more just reply
i will post how i do
