    Hey mate, im not sure what your army's rule and traits are, but if you are going for close combat go with 1 or 2 assult squad. long range go with devastor squad. it also seems like you need some armour as you can get easily chewed up if your army only consist of only infantry. a predator could be good, or maybe a dreadnought or maybe a landspeeder.

    At the end, it all depends on what your army is based on. Close Combat or Ranged or Armour Heavy. but you want to be sure you have a squad or an armour that can fulfill its role. For example, A devastor squad that has 2 rocket launcher and 1 melta gun for anti armour, but IF they are caught with enemy that are heavy in infantry, eg Ork or Nids. the rocket launcher can still be a blower. So pick them for ONE specific job only but give them a choice if they get in a pinch.

    Hope this helps.

    What equipment do your models have? Without knowing the loadout of your squads (or indeed your Captain) it'll be hard for us to recommend something to fill gaps!

    ATM a box of AoBR should help you out. Another tactical squad, some termies, a dread, ad another captain would add a deal of flexibility to your list. Through great shooting and combat power, the termies and dread will require a lot of fire to get downed.

    Other than that what weapons does everyone have?

    Fill up your tactical squads to 10 men, and get some transport - I'd recommend Razorbacks, as you can magentise the top part and thus switch between RB and Rhino as needed.

    For a 2000 point army (or close) i think you should have:
    six 10-man tacticals
    two 8-man devastator squads
    one whirlwind tank
    one draednaut
    one space marine captain
    one 3 unit land speeder squadran, with heavy flamers

    You can upgrade with leftover points....

    Why 8 man dev squads? Get 10 in there and you can combat squad them...

    Also you won't need 6 full tactical squads in 2k points.

    Pick up another Tactical squad box so you can have 2 10-man squads, then I'd suggest getting a Force Commander box, since from the description you gave of your captain it's the one from AoBR, and in my mind could have a better load-out. Also, the leftovers in the FC box will give you things to give to your sargeants.

    troops are most importane unit and if u want to overcome the low number in space marine armies this is a good army, the 8-man dev squads are because of point matters, and u need variety, plus with special squads you dont need to always max out.
    plus u should use devastators as tank busters not assault that is what the 60 tactical squads are for
