bingo..nothing wrong with this list at all in my opinion
EDIT: actually you hav a spare 11 points, SO EITHER: find another 4 points and use the 15 to make the chaplain a master of sanctity. OR. find another 9 points and give him artificer armour.

anyway. good work

Good.

Tactical squad x8, meltagun, veteran sergeant, bolt pistol, powerfist, stubborn 195 pts
Drop pod 30 pts
Remove the storm bolter, give him a bolt pistol, you need the extra CC attacks.

Tactical squad x8, meltagun, veteran sergeant, bolt pistol, powerfist, stubborn 195 pts
Drop pod 30 pts
Again remove the storm bolter, and add bolt pistol

With the changes above, you have have exactly 15 points to play with, so add another marine here.

Youve got a good army going, nice fire support, pretty mobile, with a bit of an assaulty edge to it.

Tactics:
Deploy your shooty infantry in cover, giving the best line of sight to the devs. Deploy the dreadnought, Assault squad + HQ, and skimmers, out of LOS, also, deploy the skimmers withen 2"s of eachother. (Opponents often make the mistake of thinking these are in the same squad, suddenly splitting them up turn 2 can cause confusion for your opponents plan.

Move your assault squad and landspeeders up, but out of line of sight, as best as you can.
Dont bother shooting with the speeders yet.

Let your dreadnought handel tanks, while your devs should be taking out the scarest thing in the list, such as wraithlords, orc mobs that are very close together, ect ect.

Let your troops handel elite assaulty squads, or transports.

Youll take caustalies from enemy shoots, but your dark angles, so its nothing to worry about really.

Turn 2, at least one of the drop pods should be arriving.
Deploy it 1" from what you want it to kill, UNLESS what you want to kill is on the very board edge.

This drop pod can take down a multitude of things, Good targets for them are: None skimmer tanks, heavy infantry in small numbers, light infantry in large numbers.

The best place to deploy it, would be near to where your assault squad will be when its the movement phase. That way, you avoid being to seperated.

Pick one squad withen 6" of your assault squad, to not shoot at.

Move your assault squad up its maxium distance, you should be in charge range.

Bring the skimmers out of what ever they where hiding behind.

Fire your troops at things which are close to your infantry

Fire you devs at things which will counter charge you.

Fire the dread at tanks ect.

Now shoot your drop pod infantry

Use the skimmers to mop of infantry squads.

Finally fire at the squad that was 6"s away from your assault squad, make sure that this squad wont get so whiped out that you cant assault them.

Finally launch your assault.

This is such a devastating combination of fire power and assault, that most armies are broken at this point. And will be almost destoryed turn 3.

The 3 armies id watch out for are mech tau, eldar, and orcs.

Eldar and tau have the firing capability to remove 8 marines in a single turn, which isnt good for you.

While orcs have Compas making openenly assaulting them a bit riskly.

Most other opponents can be pretty easily rolled through though.

Watch out for chaos, they are far superior in assault to your army generally, so you might consider imploying some extra softening tactics. Peace

Ahh, i miss understood. The way you wrote your list, looks like the storm bolter is part of the sgts wargear.

Yes you get a storm bolter on the drop pod, however it is reducent to mention it. If you do, it looks like youve added a weapon.

Looks good to me. Just make the adjustments already mentioned by forged.

I would give the chappy blades of reason. Its one of those little things that can go a long way in extra victory points as every point counts
Yes, blades of reason are extremely underpriced, especially when playing against 200 model IG armies. I once made about 400 victory points form a piece of wargear that costs a third as much as a space marine...

Thanks for putting that down, the blades of reason are really usefull for that * points. so this is my new list. thanks for it. Do you guys have a fine way to upgrade this list to a good 2000 pts army. I really would like to use a thirth LST but then I would have to put at least 2 of them in one slot, and that wouldn't be wise huh, (I face too many havoc squads with four tankhunting autocannons lately) so any of your succesfull 2000 strategies and unit choices?

thanks. The cannons are 15 pts a piece. In the codex dark angels it is mentioned that you can buy plasma cannons for the same cost as lascannons, which is 15 pts.

This is no longer the case. The V4.1 FAQ says to disregard this entry. You use the cost in the SM codex for plasma cannons.
