    2000pt ultramarines armoured spearhead

    i have an idea to collect a 2000pt armoured spearhead style force:

    HQ:
    calgar

    elites:
    IC dread with drop pod and heavy flamer

    5 assault termies w/THSS and land raider redemmer with a multi melta

    troops:
    2 tac squads with rhino and plasma cannon

    1 tac squad with a plasma cannon (will hich a ride in the land raider)

    heavy support:
    land raider with multi-melta

    2 vindies

    i plan is to rush the enemy and annilate them with overwhelming firepower, the the podding IC dread will cause havoc behind enemy lines killing anti-tank units and drawing firepower away my own tanks. any thourgts?

    For an armoured spearhead, you're lacking... well, a lot of armour. You don't have overwhelming firepower (for a 2000pt army) and the single Ironclad will get shot to pieces before it gets a chance to move. Or, if the enemy reserves, he's out in the open ready to be killed when the enemy arrives.

    My advice would be to ditch the Tacticals with Rhinos and load up on MSU (multiple small units) to give you an edge with firepower. You need to be able to pick off transports at long range and stop any Meltaguns getting close to your Land Raiders. Razorbacks are a solid choice.

    Ditch the termies and raiders, get 3 vindicators, 3 typhoon speeders, and some dreadnoughts. Ditch Calgar for a cheaper HQ (Librarian with Null Zone would be good here). Get meltaguns and powerfists into your tactical squads, and swap those plasma cannons for lascannons. And consider some 5 man scout teams with missile launchers.

    i was kinda thinking a list like this

    HQ:
    Sicarius

    Elites:
    5 assault termies in a LR redemmer

    5 sternguard vets in a razorback with TWLC

    troops:
    1 tac squad with plasma cannon, plsama gun, plasma pistol and a rhino

    I tac squad with plasma cannon, flamer and a rhino

    i tac squad with a multi-melta, melta gun, melta bombs

    heavy support:
    land raider with multi-melta

    2x vindies

    i ditched the ironclad and replaced calgar with sicarius so i could fit in the sternguard in the razorback for some extra firepower. i plan on putting sicarius in with the tac squad with the mutlimelta and the melta gun and gve the squad the tank hunter rule from sicarius to create a awesome anti-tank unit and the plasma weapons squad to vaperise infantry.
