    1500 point drop pod tournament

    Hey all, trying do a list with models i own (rather than wish i own).

    HQ: Librarian with gate and vortex (i'm not dead set on vortex) xxx
    to be deployed with...
    Elite: Grey Knight Terminators x4, 1 with thunder hammer/ storm shield xxx
    Elite: Drop Pod #1: Sternguard x 10, 5 with combimeltas xxx
    Elite: Drop Pod #2: Dreadnought with AssCan, DCCW, Heavy Flamer xxx
    Troop: Drop Pod #3: Tac squad x 10, Power Fist, Missle launcher, Melta xxx (with locator beacon)
    Troop: Drop Pod #4: Tac squad x 10, Power Fist, Missle launcher, Melta xxx
    Troop: Scout Squad x5, snipers, camo xx
    Heavy: Whirlwind (i'm not dead set on this) xx

    Still 11 points to spend...

    So, 7 units, 4 deep striking. Tactics as follows:

    Deployment: Scouts infiltrate in cover for the good save, hopefully NOT on an objective as i don't want them in assault. Termies and librarian deploy on the table side i intend the drop pods to come in. If i don't have first turn, hopefully the termies and libby wont be in LOS. Whirlwind sits back out of LOS and harrasses/ brings psychological pressure (i don't expect it to do much).

    Turn 1:
    a) drop pod the tac squad with the locator beacon, ideally just under 30" from my librarian terminator squad. drop pod the sternguard squad nearby. Break both tac squads into combat squads. Split up the combimeltas on the stern guard as needed for anti tank.
    b) Gate of Infinity the terminator/ librarian squad right up into the fray.

    Next: watch opponent try to decide which of 5 squads (all of whom just fired and hopefully killed something) to shoot at, knowing full well the terminators will be assaulting in their next turn, or counter-assaulting if my opponent engages first.

    My main questions:
    How is my anti tank/ anti hoard?
    What might i have to look out for the most?
    Without adding a predator, demolisher, bikes, or more drop pods, any recommendations? ( i still have plenty of models for tac marines, rhinos, LRC, venerable dread, assault, devastator, etc.

    Cheers

    Edit: i don't believe i can put point valuse for squads, but let me know if it's legal and i'll add it in.

    HQ: If you want vortex then usually terminator armour is reccommended to let you move & fire vortex with the relentless rule.

    Terminators: Fine. If you don;t need the librarian then get a psy hood for this unit champion to get the unlimited range version and considder a different HQ. However I do like cheap librarians as minimum HQs.

    Dread: I might be tempted for a MM & heavy flamer.

    Sternguard: a powerfist will help prevent you being locked in combat to shut down four fantastic shooting.

    Troops: Scouts are fine. Drop pod sqiads should swap MMs for those MLs as you wont need the extra range of the ML when you drop pod.

    Heavy: If you ditched the dread and its pod you could almost afford 2 vindicators.

    I should have mentioned the librarian is in terminator armor (points included). I might be able to to come up with a multimelta or two. At this point, i may be tempted to add vulkan as a second HQ.

    I'd be careful, blowing up a drop pod now counts as a kill point.

    Luckily, our local tourneys announce the mission 1 week prior. I would not use this list for annihilation :o
