Astro = 220
Honour Guard - JP, 4 plasmas = 225
3 Priests - all JP = 225
Libby Furioso Dread - DROP POD = 210
10 Assault Marines - 1 PF, 2 meltas = 235 (x3)
6 Assault Marines - 1 PF, 1 Flamer, meltabombs = 143
Predator - Lascannon Sponsoons, searchlight = 136 (x2)
TOTAL: 2000 points exactly
Now the idea with this list is that Astro will give all my squads a 1/2 chance of red thirst and he will make his squad a killing machine. The two preds are there for anti-tank Dakka, firepower and providing AP13 to any jetpackers starting on the board. The Furioso Libby Dread is there to terrorize enemies. He is used to prevent enemy psychers (eldar, Space Pups...) and his Wings power will let him keep up and be a good tank hunter. There will be one priest for every 10 man squad. The Honour Guard and the 6 man squad will work together. The HG Priest will help them and the HG will provide some good Fire against tough opponents while the 6 man team will mop up any survivors. In an objectives match there will be combat squadding.

Cmon guys please respons with ur thoughts i wud like to know for a mini tournament
You need less priests, chances are that you'll get furious charge anyway and then the priests are wasted so it be better to swap 1 or 2 of them for more assault squads or death company.
Your honour quards are pretty much anti elite infantry as their fighting capabilities are as good as a normal tac marines so they get killed quite easily and this squad is just a waste of points. Sternguards would be much better and they have much more versatality and a razorback to help add firepower.
You might want to add land speeders as it supports the theme of a quick army and they add some precious long ranged firepower if you give them typhoon missile launchers which are good for light vehicles which the passengers could then be assaulted by the assault squads if they are transports.
Thanks for your points. I think ill still keep the HG as they work well as a supportive shooty unti with a built in priest. This is why i chose them over the sternguard : They can boost squads around them. I didnt realise with that Astro their furious charge wud become more so no need for as many priests. I like the idea of Death Comapy cuz hes basically a chaplain that lets them re-roll hits and wounds. Also what about instead of speeders i take Baal Predators, ive always loved the idea of baal preds.
