Quick question, what is it you want to be said about your army? A list for play? And if so, what point limit?

Also, if thats the list you're using for standard games, don't think you can take 5 slots for Elites and Heavy Support.

Default My Army

Just like my Eldar Army list, I was just letting people know what I actually have in my Space Marine army. These are just the squads that I use/will be using in my games. The points that I play are between 1000-3000 points per game.

I really don't like the set up of your scouts and sergeants. Mix'n'matching in squads really lowers their effectiveness so having a tooled up CC sarge in a squad with snipers means that some part of the squad will not be used. Telion would be better in a bolter or shotgun Squad as the snipers range and heavy weapons means he won't be attacking for a while. put him in a shotgun or bolter squad so everything will fire at same range.

Plasma pistols on all your fairly expensive sergeants is a huge risk. If the guy with a powerfist gets wounded from it you've just lost a 40+point model to his own equipment. Keep them on the basic guys yes and on the odd one but not every single sergeant with a special weapon.

same with the devastators. They have a weapon for every possible range in it. You've basically wasted points on a multimelta as that is the shortest hgeavy weapon marines can have and the likelihood of him being able to shoot it is very low...

don't take this as negative though. You posted your list up for comments and help( that's what most people do anyway) and everything above has been said to increase your amy's effectiveness
