Librarian –JP (Unleash Rage, Shield of Sanguineous) = 125
Furioso Dread– Blood Talons, Searchlight, Drop Pod = 161
1 Priests –JP = 75
10 ASM – 1 PW, 2 meltas = 225
10 ASM – 1 PW, 2 meltas = 225
8 ASM – 1 PF, 1 melta = 189
(or Instead of 8 ASM=== 6 ASM – TH, 1 melta, meltabombs=163 THEN ADD extra armor to Dread (15)+ Meltabombs to priest(5) + meltabombs to sarge in Libbys squad (5) )
The Idea is that everyone will start on field(unless i see reason to do a DoA list depending on enemy) except Furioso Dread who will drop in and cause the enemy to flip out.Maybe the Furioso dread will even take out a sqaud of boyz or something . Meanwhile the others will charge (if its an objectives match combat squadding will be useful). The priest and libby are there to support. Then there shall be blood!!!
Also im not sure whether to hava the 8 man squad or the 6 man-tank hunting squad with boosts to the priest, Dread and sarge. ??? more bodies or better anti-tank???
Anyways criticism and comments are welcome.

Your lack of ranged fire support is not so good. I would lose the 8 ASM for a Pred (AC/LC sponsons) with dozer.
Your squad all need Power Fists not Weapons. Against Walkers and T6+ you will struggle.
Without wishing to sound rude "4 gud" doesn't read so well, and maybe has influenced why you've not had replies.
Wouldn't that pred get eaten up by some anti-tank cuz hybrid lists aren't the best. I mean I want to and love preds but I just don't want it to die. Do you have advice on this. Plus If I add a pred watt am I going to do with the other points left to me? A auto cannon pred? Or maybe a speeder for light mayhem or scout to make drop furioso more effective. Thanks and looking bak on the title it is a bit... Well(I'll change it)

you don't always need power fists. A power weapon + melta bombs can be a cheaper compromise. This list is lacking anti tank. You could probably drop one of the troop choices for something else fun. (as a suggestion, 1 troop choice per 500 points). But this could work... kinda...
might as well test it out if you have the models already.
Ya I am planning on dropping that 3rd squad but for what? A pred or another furioso? Or an elite squad like HG or SG etc... What would you suggest?
I am just starting out with BA so don't take anything I say as gold
Your Furioso could do without the Searchlight since it's a CC Dread, not a shooty Dread. Might be a good idea to put Extra Armour on the Furioso because if it gets 'stunned' then it won't be able to Assault, which could seriously hinder your battle plan.
The Priest would probably benefit from a PW as he has higher WS, I and more attacks than a regular marine. Have also read somewhere that Lightning Claws my be good for these guys.
I agree that your Assault Squad Sergeants would be better with Power-Fists than Weapons. I'm planning on running both my standard AS's with them.
If you dropped the 8 man AS this would give you 140 points (after you've dropped the Searchlight and amended the cost of your other 2 AS's, and added in the upgrades I've suggested). You could squeeze in a second Furioso with Extra Armour, or a tank of some description.
Hope this was helpful!

I'd go with a predator. Some long range support would be good. Give it las canon sponsons. Use it to pop transports for your furioso dread to chew up.
Ya ok but what if the list i face is Anti-Mech heavy and blows up the pred on Turn 1? Before he does ANYTHING? that wud suck. I could try it out, and if the neeed for DS comes, it isnt a huge tank so id just DS it in open ground. PLus it could be good cover for my marines while the Furioso kicks ass/causes distraction.
In terms of points another Furioso would be 20 points over so i would then give no extra armor as there would be 2 of them, and switch one melta per squad into a flamer which would = exactly 1000 point list. Otherwise i could take the Pred with Lascannons, and add extra armor to the Furioso. Then i think there are a few extra points i can toy around with. WHAT SOUNDS BETTER? i could try both and see but in your opinions?
