I think we need you to propose tactics to go with it so we know what you're trying to do. I think you're focusing on getting bodies on the table, but while having 47 Space Marines on the table is awesome, that's a lot of people having to find cover for protection from artillery fire.

On an aside, ' Brew Player'? You like a beer with your games?

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

......I've been doing this so wrong

Welcome to the board @BugBit101 , may your stay be long and full of posts

Looking at your list you've got one too many HQ selections for a Combined Arms Detachment (standard 2 HQ, 3 Elite, 6 Troops, 3 Fast Attack, 3 Heavy Support Force Organization Chart). Aside from that you seem to have a lot of bases covered, though I'm wary of 5 man Tactical squads with a meltagun on foot. Kinda not very mobile given their effective range of 12" (preferably 6" for the meltagun). Do you have any idea of what sort of forces you'll be up against?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
