    Looks fairly solid in my opinion. The idea of those dreads dopping into my lines scares the snot out of me. I\d probably drop the searchlights on them though, I don't see them as being terribly usefull, even wen playing a nightfight mission.

    Hmmm, forgot how cheap they were. Other than that, looks like a good list.

    Looks okay, Where are you going to use your chaplain?
    Your dreads wont arrive until turn 2 or 3, so your tac sqauds are going to come under alot of fire. I suggest dropping on of your tac sqauds, and replacing it with 2 sqauds of 5 marines with las or plasma cannons. drop one marine from your other tac sqaud, include the chaplain with this unit and put them in a drop pod as well. (you can free up 30 pts by dropping one marine as mentioned before, and 2 5man tac sqauds with las or plasma cannons cost 15 to 25 pts less than the original sqaud)
    Dreads and dev sqaud look fine. If you already have the models and can't change the army much, then don't worry. Just try hard to keep your tac sqauds out of LOS of the enemies big guns. (which armies will you be versing?)

    P.S. Do you even have the models for drop pods? they cost 45pounds each from forge world, 55 for a dreadnought drop pod. e-mail me at fishmishomp@gmail.com for help with this problem. can't say any more here.

    Howdy,
    I just played myself using your force as one of the armies, and a dark eldar force of 1000 points for the other army. Your army started out strong, killing a few grotesques, which is quite a feat, and killed a lot in close combat. But, alas, the space marines were no match in close combat for the combined power of 20 wyches, and for the most part died miserably. I stoped at the end of turn 4, your force had 3 tactical marines left, a vet sergeant, a melta gunner, and a regular tac marine, and then your chaplain, who was on his last wound, and your devsquad, minus 2 troopers. The first dreadnought fell behind my lines, and shot at my warriors, but the next turn, a ravager came out of the webway, and annihilated the dreadnough. The second happened the same way, except it was the warriors who scored the kill. The devastators were effective though, when there was not combat, and against any army that doesn't employ CC so much as dark eldar, those tactical marines, are pretty tough... i learned to fear that 3+ armor save, and since I didn't have power weapons, it made it all the worse.

    Magikan-I got templates although I am considering getting the FW ones. Thanks :yes: The other armies I will be mainly facing are Marines, CSM and SoB. I'll consider dropping the tactical squad for to smaller ones but for this army I wanted to keep it as codex as possible(things like full squads and stuff).

    Jhagadurn-Very Nice of you to go to all that trouble :w00t: Anything you think I should change in the list?
