    I take it that you are starting with the Termies on the Table, if so then remove 2 terminators and take another Landspeeder Tornado. you thereby get another assault cannon and a heavy bolter as opposed to 2 storm bolters, and the Tornado is much more moble when you want to claim table quarters.
    Otherwize, considder stripping the squad size down to 5 and put them in a Drop Pod. The pod provides exelent cover from Lascannons/Plasma Cannons etc.

    I agree with DominionWeaponsGroup, take out heavy weapons from drop Podding TAC squads. This will give you 20 extra points.

    Nice. I personally use 3 in 3 seperate squads of 1 each. If the terain allows it (and your opponent isn't going to ordenance your Speeder), start with it on the table. Otherwise deep strike it. This may provide exelent flanking tactics.

    Split these squads into 2 squads of 5 marines each. This gives you the option of fielding 2 Veteran Sergeants with power fists, and your opponent will have to divert a lot of firepower from a squad to shoot at 5 Marines.

    A tactic which I've seen recently is to give assault marines 2 flamers instead of plasma pistols. Flamers are assault weapons, so they wont stop you from assaulting, and can also cause a serious amount of wounds. Chaos / Marines / Necrons must roll 1's and 2's eventually just by the sheer amount of wounds inflicted. But the plasma pistols again are more useful against Monstrous creatures. Its your call.

    Assuming you keep the Assault marines, Terminators, Chaplain and the Land Speeder on the Table, then strip this squad down to 8 marines total. This will give you points for the extra Veteran Sergeant in a second Assault Squad. If you are going to deep strike your entire army, save for the Devestators, then get rid of the Devestators as your opponent will focus his entire army's firepower into this one squad.

    Hope this helps

    when you say heavy weapons, do u mean the heavy bolter and lascannon? and im assuming i do not replace them and divert the 35 points elsewhere. Ok, i can probably find 80 points from the terminators, but where can i pull another 80 for the 3rd landspeeder? How bout 1 of the 5-man assault squads have plasma pists and the other 5-man have flamers. then i can kill 2 birds w/ 1 stone.

    *EDIT*
