    I can see 2 HQ, 2 Elite. 2 troop choices and a fast attack. So there is you army right there... I do have some tips. You company master should either have a power weapon and a bolt pistol or a lightning claw and a storm bolter. Also you need some form of transportation for your footslogging troops, either a couple of drop pods, or a few rhino's/razorbacks.


    So here it is tidied up so people can read it, also with the correct unit typings and hopefully points values. Also I've added a few changes already.

    HQ.

    Company Master w/ Ligtnign Claw and Storm Bolter (130 pts)

    Command squad (200 pts)
    Company Champion, apothecary, standard bearer
    1x Power fist
    1x Plasma Gun.

    Mounted in
    Razorback with TL Lascannons (120 pts)
    All upgrades
    Swap Las for HB and take off all the upgrades, 40 pts to get your command squad into action is all you need

    Chaplin (115 pts)
    Plasma pistol
    Attach to veteran Squad.

    Troops

    Tactical squad (180 pts)
    1x flamer
    1x missile launcher
    Sarge w/ chainsword + bolt pistol
    Add a transport, A drop pod is good or a rhino. Also give the Serg a power fist to make him good in CC.

    Tactical squad (120 pts)
    4x Bolter
    Sarge with power weapon and plasma pistol
    Give these guys a razorback with a heavy Bolter if you are going to kit your serg out so heavily.


    Fast Attack

    Land Speeder (Ravenwing) (100 pts)
    Heavy Bolter and Assault Cannon

    Elites

    Company Veteran Squad (350 pts)
    Need a transport badly, rhino/drop pod.
    2x power weapons + BP
    3x plasma pistols + CCW
    4x chainsword/bolt pistol
    1x Power Fist and Bolt Pistol


    Scout squad (100 pts)
    4x sniper rifles Swap a sniper for a missile launcher or HB
    Serg w/ Sniper Rifle

    Total 1315 pts.


    Adding a rhino and two razorbacks would round you out to 1500 pts nicely. So in 2000pts you could afford another 2 land Speeder's to make your army go really well. Also you could squeeze a preadator tank in their just to soak up some firepower...

    ok, im debating what other units to include, Im going to put at least 1 pred (trying to think of which variant), and im trying to think if I want to inculde any/all of the following:

    ravenwing bike squads
    deathwing termies
    Assault squads


    now that I think about it, would there even be a better use of points then using the veterans?
