    Honestly? His WS/BS are both low for a marine CO, and he has no special abilities of any kind that offer support to the rest of his army. Just take a counts-as Lysander if you want a Juggernought type.

    Does he need to fit any particular fluff? All a vanilla captain really needs to be useful is Eternal Warrior.

    Why give him init 6 if you're giving him a thunderhammer? Versus just sticking with most captain's initiative of 5?

    Will the strength bonus apply before or after the thunderhammer doubling his strength (is his attack strength effectively 9 or 10?)

    Shooting from the hip (and I feel like I'm shooting pretty low), I would point him at about 260 points to field. I'm basing this compared to a wolf guard battle leader with thunder hammer, runic armour, storm shield, eternal warrior, and thunderwolf mount. Giving him 5 wounds is huge though, especially with eternal warrior.

    Why not use Lysander as a base for Leonitus? You could then drop his special rules (keeping Eternal Warrior) and add a new one that will emphasize his character. This way, you could keep Lysander's cost and avoid a lot of debate on point values. Inspirations for replacement special rules:

    Any Terminator unit is scoring if Leonitus is attached to it.

    Units including Leonitus are inspired to have +1 WS.

    Chapter Tactics: Volley Fire. An army with this CT may never run but can reroll to hit with ranged weapons. (Not including vehicles.)
