alright as you might be able to tell by my name i originally played eldar and i still do. However i now wish to play play a 2nd army. I picked space marines mainly because none of my family or local friends play them and i thought they were a good change from the eldar. Basically im looking for a semi-competitive list (i play with my cousins and brother for small wagers and i play small tournaments at the local hobby shop). So all in all i want a list that can still play and win most of the time but id like it to look good on the table and not be total overkill in any way. By the way i made my own chapter so id prefer not to use any of the chapter specific characters however i did field sergeant telion although for my purposes ill rename him.
Space Marine Chapter Master
-Artificer Armor (2+ armor save)
-Digital Weapon (reroll to wound once per assault phase)
-Storm Bolter (not sure if this is worth it in other models but its cheap pt wise here)
-Pt cost 148
-Honor Guard retinue-2 honor guard 1 Company Champion
Honor Guard- one with the chapter banner
- other with a relic blade (worth it?)
- pt cost for retinue 165
-Pt cost for Chapter Master and Retinue 313
Master of the Forge
-pt cost 130
10 man Space Marine Tactical squad (9 marines 1 sergeant)
-1 marine w/ plasma gun
-1 marine w/ heavy bolter
-sergeant w/ stormbolter
-all mounted in a rhino w/ storm bolter
-pt cost w/ rhino 225
2nd 10 man tactical squad w/ all the same stuff another 225 points
-mounted in land raider w/ storm bolter (standard or crusader? same pt value but different weapons
-standard twin linked heavy bolter and 2 twinlinked lascannons and storm bolter
-crusader twin linked assault cannon and 2 hurricane bolters and storm bolter
-pt cost for land raider 260(either model)
-pt cost land raider + termies=460
Legion of damned(4 men and sergeant)
-1 damned legionairre has a heavy bolter
-pt cost 165
10 assault marines
-1 marine w/ flamer
-pt cost 200
5 scout bikes
-pt cost 80
1 standard dreadnought w/ twinlinked auto cannon and heavy flamer
-in a drop pod
- pt cost 160
-120 pt total
Army total points 2013
i know this is 13 pts over but it is acceptable between my family and i
*********** by the way these 5 devastators may not be as effective depending on who i am fighting. in this event i may opt to take 5 more scouts and a standard dreadnought with varying weaponry based on the armor and toughness of my opponent. in the end the dreadnought and 5 scouts cost 180 and the devastators cost 180 so it all works out.
i am open to all suggestions and please if anything here is stupid please point it out. never played as space marines before so in these regards i have no experience. however i've been playing eldar for about 8 months now and i am experienced in most of the games rules and etc.
Thank you all for your suggestions and if there are any eldar players looking for help im here.

Your list seems a bit light on troops to me, another tactical squad would be good, and all the sergeants should have powerfists. Many players deem devastators too expensive pointwise to be a good choice, but four missile launchers would be a better load out for them. Predators are sound choices, especially the destructor with auto cannon and heavy bolter sponsons. The five strong scout squad is nearly as expensive as a standard ten man tactical squad, and has much lower stats. Hope you do well with them sir.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
So u think I should drop the devastators and scouts get another tactical squad and upgrade the predators?
alright for anyone who has already read this and now notices things are different i changed a few things. dropped scouts/ scout bikers/ devastator and added another tactical squad and a dreadnought in a drop pod.
