    LS
    LS
    Hvy
    whirlwind

    24 terminators
    21 SM

    In both lists, the Librarain would be much more effective if given a drop pod.

    That way fear of the darkness will tear appart armies that are often difficult for death wing/terminators to handel.

    Those being, IG/eldar/tau.

    These 3 races really get hammered by fear of the darkness.

    Peace.

    Go for the first list thanks to its advanced tactical flexibility. And I agree that the Lib. should have a drop pod, but so should at least one other unit, as only one unit in Drop Pods tend to die quickly with little or no gain.

    Thanks for the info. I was thinking instead of drop pod how about I deepstrike 2 units instead the hq and one of the elites?
    thanks

    Don't really need the expensive mantle with a Termy-armoured character. I'd change both squads of CMLs to ACs which you really need to max out on. Alternatively, drop a squad and get 2 fire support Dreads instead. Furious charge would be useful for the Libby and his Command squad sarge too. Just a little thing, but it is always useful if you have enough squads to designate one as a Fast Attack choice. That way way you can deploy it last to take advantage of any weakness (or threats) posed by enemy deplyment.

    Best of luck

    thanks for the input zuriel. I like the idea of fast attack it will help delay setting my troops up. but I have decided to go with the vanilla instead of dw. i will be facing one of these 3 today. LATD, Blood Angels or tyranids.
