    1500 point space marine bikes army

    I'm trying to get back into warhammer 40k so i'm a bit lacking in tactics and knowledge of rules since i haven't played as much as i'd want to.

    This is my bike army list so far and i'm hoping to get more landspeeders.

    HQ - 325

    Space marine captain on bike 175
    relic blade
    bike
    hellfire rounds

    Master of the forge 155
    conversion beamer
    bike

    Elite - 395

    Ironclad dreadnought 175
    assault launchers
    2x hunter killer missiles
    heavy flamer

    Dreadnought 105

    Dreadnought 105

    Troops - 600

    bike squad 210
    attack bike with multi melta
    extra biker
    2x melta guns
    power fist

    bike squad 180
    attack bike with heavy bolter
    extra biker
    2x flamers
    power weapon

    bike squad 210
    attack bike with multi melta
    extra biker
    2x plasma guns
    power weapon
    Fast Attack - 180

    Landspeeder 90
    typhoon missile launchers

    Landspeeder 90
    Typhoon missile launchers

    Total Points- 1500

    So that's my list, i just need more advice and how to possibly improve my list

    you iron clad will not be that effective in this list without a drop pod. besides the two single shot missiles it has no long range eapons to be effective as it walks across the board. also, what are your other dreadnaughts equipped with?

    Equipped with multi meltas and a close combat arm with under slung heavy bolter.
    I See your point but as i forgot to mention, the dreadnoughts are temporary additions and sometimes i use scout bikers instead as i like the idea of grenading enemy units to death! I'm also thinking of vindicators too as they'll provide cover for my bikes as well as clearing the way for my bikes to attack enemy units once they lose their transport or just simply killing things in cover

    I recommend using maximum-size bike squads. Combat squadding is very useful for bike lists and the bodycount will be useful.

    A biker librarian would serve you better than a MotF. Null Zone would be particularly useful in countering elites and Monstrous Creatures.

    I knew someone would eventually ask me that. I don't like combat squading as you get less specal weapons and attack bikes so makes them less efficient when i combat squad them.
    I see your point about using a libarian and i might use it from time to time but my Motf job is to take out tanks from long range and it does help to take out land raiders
