Reclusiarch w/ terminator armour, storm bolter, and 4x assault terminator retinue w/ furious charge skill = 287
10x space marine tactical squad w/ heavy bolter, plasma gun, and rhino transport w/ extra armour, and smoke launchers = 223
10x space marine tactical squad w/ plasma gun, and rhino transport w/ extra armour, and smoke launchers = 218
Land speeder w/ multi-melta = 60
Predator annihalator w/ sponson heavy bolters = 130
Whirlwind artillery vehicle = 85
Total = 1003
Go ahead and rip it up.
First the technicalities then I'll properly critique. You can't assign assult termies as a command squad, only the normal ones.
Your two troop squads look okay except you probably don't want/need the heavy bolter because when you disembark you won't be able to fire.
Your landspeeder should probably take Assult Cannon instead. Switch your annilator with a destructor sponsons are fine lets you move and shoot.
Whirlwind is fine I suppose could be interesting if you fired the Castellian missles to keep them off your infantry.
Your HQ is probably to expensive for 1000 but you could make it work, just remember gotta switch it to normal Termies if you want it to be a command squad. (but since your just setting them in on foot you could just buy an assult squad and join the Chaplain to it.)
In addition to this add a veteran sergeant with power fist.Your two troop squads look okay except you probably don't want/need the heavy bolter because when you disembark you won't be able to fire.Yes on the landspeeder, no on the predator. Mixing the weapon types is bad, it doesn't have a dedicated role now. Leave it as anti tank with the lascannon sponsons as you have almost no anti tank weaponry.Your landspeeder should probably take Assult Cannon instead. Switch your annilator with a destructor sponsons are fine lets you move and shoot.Besides being illegal this squad is useless, they have to ffotslog across the board and will be shot to pieces, either give the sergeants in the tac squads teleport homers or give them a landraider crusader. What would be even better is adding a scout squad that infiltrates with a teleport homer. So they should end up looking like this:Reclusiarch w/ terminator armour, storm bolter, and 4x assault terminator retinue w/ furious charge skill = 287

If in a LRC
Master of sanctity w/terminator armor, thunderhammer or powerfist, assault terminatorsx5(elites), LRC
Deepstriking terminators don't get to move or assault, they can only shoot so assault termies would get to do nothing for a turn, so termies with guns especially assault cannons will do some damage. Assault termies do best in a landraider crusader as they can assault the turn the disembark and count as having frag grenades, if you can manage the models I would go with seven termies instead of five.

Well the thing with the sponsons is how many really heavy vehicles(AV 13 or 14) are you going to find in 1000, probably just 1 maybe 2(and if it's 2 they're going to hurting in everything else, except maybe IG). The Tornado can go for Side or rear armor and then doesn't even have to have rending (for most tanks, aka not LR). If you give the tank heavy bolter sponsons you can chew up infantry and light vehicles pretty easy. If you give the tank all Las cannon sponsons you take out the big tank and then what? Just another way to look at it especially since its a fairly low point value.
True, but my main point is that he has no dedicated anti tank weaponry. Would you rather have a hard time getting glances and penetrating hits with heavy bolters or not at all, or would you want a pretty good chance at penetrating with 3 lascannons? With the hevy bolters and just one lascannon its going to be harder to take out vehicles if you fail to blow it up with the lascannon shot in one turn, it might take up to three. With 3 lascannons it should just take one round of shooting and then you can move on to other targets.Originally Posted by BerserkWolf
An alternative to this dilemma is to equip the tac squads in rhinos with meltas and make the predator pure anti infantry with an autocannon, heavy bolters and a storm bolter.
What do you think about the terminator solution I suggested?

Switching the squad to normal termies with Assult Cannons is a good idea, just expensive. If he really wants them though I agree with you get the normal ones. And if he gives two of termies with chainfists theres a pretty dedicated tank killer!
