Okay... well this isn't my first tourney... but it is my first low point tourney as I have always played tournaments all at 2500 points...
MORE TO THE POINT
I would like people to post competitive 1000 Points lists...
I have a lot of variety of units to choose from the menu...
But feel free to choose special characters... but i find it hard to place them with such a low amount of points :/
-Captain (Pick your flavour name it... and I have it)
-Chaplain w/ bolt pistol
-15 Shooty Termi
-5 Assault Termi (2 TH / 3 LC (Pre-5th Ed... whatchu gonna do))
-5 Assault Marines
- I only have 1 Heavy bolter/2 LC/ 2 PC/ 4 ML/ 1 MM
-50 Tac Marines
- Pick w/e you want... except... Heavy Weapons are limited to the above *see dev squad*

Okay i play lots of low point games so i should be able to help you here. Shame you don't have any scouts as at low point games they can really shine. Firstly go with 20 tactical marines. Special weapons i would go lasacannon and meltagun on one and plasmacannon and flamer on the other. (Plasma is key for low point games and flamers are surprisingly good) put both of these in a box for protection and mobility. Most importantly give the sergants PF's as they can do a low of damage. That setup roles in at 490 points which is already half of your points. ( I know its a lot but is worth it.)
For your HQ i have found that lysander is the best personaly. At 200 points he is cheep for what he does and helps the rest of your army such as getting stubborn and bolster defences.
Black reach dread is nice and give it a HF and you can cause some serious hurt. Lastly put in 5 terminators. More TH/SS would be nice but its not essential.
So overall your list would look like this:
Captain lysander =200
Tactical marines x10 =250
tactical marines x10 =235
assault terms x5 =200
So tactics: Lysander will go of on his own and with 3++ invun 4 wounds eternal warrior he does this really well. He can also punch tanks easily with his str 10 TH which adds +1 for damage tables. Assault terms will act in the same sort of way and with both being able to DS you can overwhelm a flank or split them up. Idea is for your opponent to target these and so relieving pressure on your tactical squads which will combat squad in objective misssions leaving your lasacannon and plasmacannon to support other units.( remember they get 3+ cover because of lysanders bolster defences) the other part of these squads will use the rhino to keep them alive shooting out of the top hatch and assaulting where needed. You can also park on objectives and drop your combat squad of and then contest with the rhino. Powerfists allow this unit to cause more damage in the assault as 5 men have very little hitting power.
Lastly the dread will use the rhinos as cover and move up to speedbump and flamer/melta targets.
Hope i helped, gl with your tourney.

Nothing more funny than 3 inquisitors with sanctify when facing deamons. They cant do anything while you stand in front of them having a tee break.
Yes I just bought a SM Battleforce in order to get the other rhino... so I have scouts
Thanks a bunch ^_^
