well firstly you cant make a list as you have no troops...so go buy at least 2 tac squads.

but here a a few suggestions...run the libby as tigerius..dont bother with marneus too expensive not really that good.

marneus and the dev cents with the raider to very expensive can make a very good death star...tiggy get to basically choose his power so you can t boos the dev cent really really well.

Depends on what you want to run.

Death star force is a good idea, protected in a land raider, march up to key units and take them out.

Definately need MINIMUM 2 troop squads. Possibly with plas gun and Heavy Bolter. My usual load-up, but if after tank hunting party then plas gun/ lascannon combo will work a treat.

Id usually think about adding some flying support (stormraven personal choice). Although 200pt standard, with tiggy re-rolling reserve rolls using Scrier's Gaze then could come in and lay down the pain come T2.

Think about some heavy fire support also if want to run a static firing line. 2x Vindicators or Thunderfire cannons. 4x surface detonation shots into horde armies per cannon is always welcome.

All in all, depends on your persoanl fighting preference. advise playing and finding what is right for you and aim to preempt what army your opponent may have.

Try this out for size- works out a couple points short of 1850.

HQ- Chapter Master in Terminator Armour (combi plas and chainfist)
Troop- 2x 10-man tactical Squad ( Plasma Gun + Heavy Bolter with Rhino)

Troop- 5-man scout squad (4x Sniper rifle, 1x Heavy Bolter)- in Landspeeder storm (with underslung Assaut Cannon)

Elite- Dreadnought- twin-linked Lascannon and Missile Launcher

Fast Attack- 2x Stormtalon gunships (2x Skyhammer missile launchers)

Heavy Support: Devastator Centurian squad(x3)1x Grav weapon +Grav amp, 2x Twin-linked lascannon
1x Omniscope

Heavy Support: Land Raider Redeemer + Multi Melta

Heavy Support: Stormraven Gunship: Twin linked Assault Cannon + Twin linked Multi Melta.

From what I can see, you have ample flying support, and a solid troop support for your big guns.

Forget about Calgar, basically a points sink with less perks than in 5th. Id rather run a chapter master and run him up with the centurians to pop a tank or two, or kill a high-profile target.

Id probably scout in the scout troop and transport, with the stormtalon escorting the craft onto the field to try and flank the enemy. Allow the LR to absorb alot of the damage, and unleash the centurians when within range. Use the tac squad to secure objectives, or take up firing positions and unload your firepower into them.

There may be issues if your flyers donnot make it onto the field by T3, but if youre lucky, and the enemy has limited flyers interceptors then could be quite useful.

I am aware there are some models you dont have at the moment, but with the models you currently have this is one particular loadup I would take.
