    duplication is key in drop pod armies so i suggest you take one of the tac teams and create a second melta tac squad of 10. Add 2 more to the 8 man squad and remove the other tac squad and add a second dread.
    4 tac squads 2 melta and 2 plasma plus 2 dreads.

    I think your army will be more effective this way. Ive just started an all drop pod army as well and played it once. I was pleased that i had 2 of each squad because they didnt all arrive at the same time.

    Also.. is plasma wise on an IC due to the over heating rule ? Im a newb at using libbys so i might be missing something.

    Post how the LandSpeeders worked out. Ive considered running LST,s in my drop pod army as well. It seems it would be pretty fluffy also...having the lsts scout an area prior to the pods coming in.

    This army is very similar to a Dark Angel players list that won a GT with it. So I figured I'd give it a shot.

    The Speeders are down just for the sake of having something down first turn. I intend to rush them forward and shoot when the first pods start to arrive.

    I'd try the duplication, but I don't have a second dread and the blank tacs are meant to be something of a distraction from the rest of the army. The real power lies in my plas and melta squads.

    My libby will only use the plasma once and I doubt that I'll get a two or one, besides the 2+ save is there to protect him quite a bit.

    But your ideas are good, I just can't implement them.

    thats fine if you cant field the second dread. However why not add a plasma gun to one of the distraction squads and a melta to the second one ? This way they are interchangeable. Dont give your opponent a choice on what squad to ignore. Put a bigger gun in each and they are all important. Also god forbid the only 2 squads to land 2nd round are your distraction ones.
