thats a little hard to read mate also you have 3 hqs which is illegal
also dont post invidual cost just unit total costs thats naughty
at a glance you have no transports drop the 6 man tacticals buy transports dump the extras on the vehicles you dont need them and the landraider is a dedicated transport for your termies so that frees a hvy support slot buy more combis for your sternguard pref meltas
also just noticed you do know you can only use 1 speacial characters chapter tactics
hope that helps

i hardly ever use captain sicarius
can termies use LRs? i need my codex back from my mate...
sometimes the whirlwind i use as a rhino
and i know about the individual points its because i use lots of options and that actually doesn't happen on my new list
thanks anyway ^^
Can Termies use a Land Raider?!?!!? J/k, but seriously it's a Dedicated Transport to them. So dedicate it and free up a Heavy Support slot.
Remove the 6 man Tactical Squad, 2 HQ's and the extras on the Vehicles, this will free up around 525 points!!!!!!!
Or keep the 3rd Squad but bring them up to 10 and get your Squads some much needed transports like Rhino/Razor's or even Drop Pod's. Your army will die a terrible fate in 2,000 points games without transports. You'll still even have enough points to round out the Devastators (although people will recommend not too) Consider a Vindicator or 2 instead.
Throw in some Fast Attack all are better choices than having 2 HQ's!!! Oh and some combi-melta's are always good on Sternguard, especially if you stick with Vulkan as your HQ.
Make sure you add those special weapons on your Terminators, usually people recommend the Assault Cannon, but the Cyclone Missle Laucnher is good as well.

I agree that your list is a bit hard to read. Check some other army lists from older members for an idea of how army lists are written out.
I find something like:
"Tactical Marines x10, w/ meltagun, heavy bolter, powerfist - 200pts"
Is often all you will need. Other players will know that the powerfist goes on a sergeant, and it will streamline your list, making it easier for us to respond to it.
6 marines would be more effective if you had a razorback to cart them around, allowing you mobile firepower on a unit that can jump on objectives.
Seems a little light on troops. at 2k, I feel that 4 squads is usually in order.
Mixing weapons on Devestators is really iffy in my book, you're setting them up to fire at everything, specialize their mix a bit and they should prove more effective. Missile launchers are a strong weapon with any mix though. Just know what you want to be shooting.
Missile launcher - anti vehicle/MC/horde
Plasma cannon - anti heavy infantry/MC
lascannon - anti vehicle/MC
Other than this, go in and refine your list a bit more, it will make it easier for us to reply when we know what exactly each unit uses.
@ Xanosaucy, the bold underlined oversized letters are a bit garish, maybe tone it down a little. People will read what you post if it's normal font/type.
This was my first list
