    More marines, two more tac squads would work. Assault squad would fair pretty good as well.

    A 'rhino with lascannons' is a Razorback. I would probably just use it as a rhino.. razoebacks can only carry 6 marines.. and any units that you want to transport will be close combat style ones.. and any close combat style squad should be bigger than 6.
    Plus it cant shoot its lascannons if you move more than 6".. which it should be doing if its transporting a unit.

    I would reccomend making your army dark angels.. they are the only space marine army scheduled to get a new codex & new models soon (not sure exactly when).. personally if i was just starting and i started anything but dark angels, id be kicking myself when all the awesome new stuff comes out..

    Yes, buy:
    -2 more tactical squads.
    -1 marine with Lascannon
    -1 marine with Plasma cannon
    Something to use as a sergeant with powerfist & bolt pistol.

    Assemble the tac squads as:
    1 melta gun
    2 missile launchers
    you will probly use 1 for making the serg with powerfist.
    1 plasma gun
    15 bolters

    then a good way to organise those squads is like this:
    -5 marines. 1 with lascannon
    -6 marines. 1 with plasma cannon. 1 with plasma gun
    -10 marines. 1 with melta gun. 1 Sergeant with powerfist (& drop pod or the rhino for this squad)
    (then manage to get your hands on 2 more missile launchers and put together a devastator squad with 4 missile launchers. and 2-4 bolters)

    That will give you a good troop selection to build your army around.
    Anything after that is really up to what you want.. theres tonnes of good units.. dreadnaughts.. landspeeder tornados.. assult squads.. bikes.. predators

    what sort of style are you looking to play?? lots of shooting? lots of close combat? balanced?

    Hi
    Definantly, atleast 1 more tac squad, I personally am getting 3 tactical squads befor i do anything. Giveing me a solid core of 30 marines, Then you will need a Commander/Chaplain/Librarian a commander is the best choice for an army of this size bacause you can equip him so he only cost about 80pt.
    When you go upto the bigger games 1500pts-2000pts get a librarian they are great at supporting and strengthening weakened squads.

    Hope this helps.

    Alot of people, including myself, would tell u that chaplains are better than librarians in most departments.

    Psyker powers are good but a little unreliable & tend to be rather short-ranged (in a game dominated by long range fire power..). The force weapons are great for a chance at killing multiple wound characters & monsters in 1 go..but it doesnt happen all that often.
