I don't face horde armies. Most often, MEQ in the form of other marines or chaos marines. On occasion I face IG, Tau, and Necrons, but not often enough to warrant buying a new model for such an occasion to arise. I've been contemplating changing the arms on the Dreadnought to accommodate a higher rate of fire. What do you think of that idea?

I could easily do this, as the Rhinos are on loan from my BA and I have pretty much two of every turret aside from las/plas (only one until I really want to make another) and heavy flamers (none. I think this is a bad option). My thing with using the Rhinos was to keep the squads at full strength, it's hard enough not getting squads that large wiped away by Heldrakes or Vindicators.

-OR- I could use two five man devastator squads, one MLs and one LCs. What do you think of that option? Keep in mind I have 130 points to spare here, more if I drop half of the ML Devs.

Even if I'm not combat squadding them? I get two weapons shooting out of the top hatch, so if I'm not mobile that turn I can still take a heavy weapon shot. Plus I really use transports to hinder LoS if they make it to the late game objective grabs.

The Devastators will be manning the ADL. Tank Hunter with a twin-linked skyfire/interceptor weapon? Yes fucking please.

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