I wrote this list on the fly really, in order to play a game with what models I had on me and this is what I came up with. Unfortunatley the list had to play against mech world eaters and dual lash (something I'd like to never do with my Sabrefangs (ravenguard) again.
1st captain Dakkar (shrike)
7 sniper scouts
2X10 man tac squads
10 assault marines
I wanted opinons/suggestions on what you thought, what you'd change etc.
Thanks in advance!
Your army doesn't have an identity. Shrike is a CC beast, but if your only assault unit is the Assault Marines, they're easily countered.
Basic Marines aren't good at shooting on foot, a better gun army can hurt them before they close the gap. If you like Tactical squads, they should have a some kind of a transport. Than they can get into Rapid Fire faster and can capture objectives in a timely fashion. Rhinos/Razorbacks can also screen your CC unit/s.
I didn't know what the Predator has, but I'd make it a tank hunter if it's not, as you don't really have one, and every army runs at least one vehicle or big baddie.
If you drop the Scouts, and mount up those Tactical squads, remove the Heavy Weapon you'd have a more united attack. This will let your death unit get into CC more often. Hope I helped.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

Drop the heavy weapons? They're pretty much free! You'll find an occasional ML or LC shot a lot more useful than a bolter... but that's beside the point, as you can do both. Combat squad - half go in the transport, half stay back and provide coverfire.If you drop the Scouts, and mount up those Tactical squads, remove the Heavy Weapon you'd have a more united attack. This will let your death unit get into CC more often. Hope I helped.
I think those Tactical Squads certainly need to be put in a Rhino or, preferably fluff-wise, a Drop Pod.
I'd keep the Scouts. Maybe drop the unit down to five, get Camo-Cloaks and replace the Heavy Bolter with a Missile Launcher
Apart from that, it's a list that'll do well.
When it comes to the scouts, I'm just using the models I have (7) same goes for the heavy bolter.
My issue (at least when it came to this particular game, I refer to it I believe) was that A. I didn't have psychic hood to shut down lash, and he was mech. World eaters with lash sorcerers is a nasty list. But shrike isn't going to infiltrate anywhere near them, because then the lash will put the berzerkers in charge range and there's points down he drain. You need to charge berzerkers to beat them and well...mech and lash very tough to do that. I think most of us hate lash though, so I guess I'm in good company.
