Hi all, been thinking up army lists after reading through the forums and all of the tactica on the marines. I'm on a bit of a budget, so I'm using what I've got to work with. Please feel free to add any ideas on changes to the list or any potential additions on my way up to the 1850 range.

The general tactical approach is to use a blitzkreig attack, using the Devistator to soften, and the Pods and Termies to take the fight to them. Tactics can be changed if necessary, by shifting around the tac squads. Just after putting up the list, I see that one thing may be shifting around the powerfist, but I 'm not sure yet.
Thanks in advance for all critiques, whether positive or negative.
