I've been kicking around the idea of a D-Pod army for a while and I think the correct marines to use are Trust your Battle brother guys with cleanse and purify. So the list would look like this:
Terminator Armor/Storm Bolter/Force Weapon/Msater Crafted Weapon/Viel of Time/Fear of the Darkness /Furious Assault
4-Terminator Command Squad
2xAC 2xSB Furious Assault
Serg w/PF(I know it doesnt make alot of sense to get the PF for the Serg, but I hate the way the squad looks if he's got a PW)
Heavy Flamer/Assault Cannon/Dreadnaught CCW
2xMeltaGun Serg w/PF&Bolter
Take life seriously, its lethal.
OK first let me say I like the idea of an entirely deep striking army.
But there are some major problems with it, the main one being you arrive peacemeal, which tends to mean on any given turn (except the first) you will have a couple of your squads trying to outshoot your opponents entire army - a recipie for a good kicking.
you have way over spent on your HQ:
a librarian with FOD is a good choice for a deep striker against some armies, but a complete waste against fearless troops
I would ditch the terminator armour entirely. ditch his master crafted weapon - his WS is high enough - he doesnt need it, give him termie honours, a bolt pistol and an iron halo, probably ditch th second power, give him a standard command squad, with an apothacary and a vet sgt and laod up on plasma weaponry
look at adding a bit of variaty- land speeder tornado with Assault cannon and heavy bolter would be my prefered choice
I have an extensive drop pod army, or at least i think so, currently its 7-0. heres a link:
uhh you might have to copy and paste, im not sure, never used a link before. Anyway ive found a strong fire base is still needed, best served through devs and 2 torandos, + bikes, but they are also assaulty. Something i cant fit into my list, but often wish i had was a whirlwing, since the armies that treaten you will be hordes, especially hords wit 4+ saves. Good luck.
