Welcome to Librarium Online!
Oh no! I has been sucked back into this awful hobby...
I am currently halfway through building up my completely new Crimson Fists army. It has many big red fists and is slightly fluffy and stupid.
I am after something that is flexible/balanced/diverse and fun to use but packs a bit of an ol' punch in the face.
My tactic is to move up everything (except the Scouts and Predator) 12" first turn to get within rapid fire range and close combat distance and go from there. The killer unit here seems to be the Terminator Assault squad. Pedro will be conferring extra attacks to it and the Chaplain will also help nicely. The assault squad will tie down shooty infantry.
I will be facing mostly Imperial Guard (Ye OIde Gun Line with a few Russes), but potentially Eldar and Necrons also.
C&C on tactics and list welcome!!

i would change it slightly and have flamers on the assault squad (i find them to be better than plasma pistols 90% of the time). i'd also swap the landspeeder for a multimelta attack bike as at the moment the landspeeder is not really doing much and is an easy kill point, at least the attack bike could pop a tank (and is small enough to hide behind your land raider.
i'd also swap the pred for a vindicator but that's personal preference. other than that, looks good.
Cheers, I like the idea of flamers on the assault squad. I might slap a multi-melta on the land speeder with the spare points. I also notice that a Predator with no upgrades (just the autocannon) is worth 60 points also. Hmm...
I play fists, and though I only use Pedro now above 2500, I wanted to point out that with him the sternguard cover the roll of your scouts or one of your tac. squads. While they are crazy expensive, I find I need to field 10 in order to do anything with them. Sometimes a drop pod is good because you can combat squad them out of it if you want and it will always land within rapid fire or combi melta range. Just remember they die like regular marines
