Default 2k points space marines, need help.

I want to build a two thousand point list using specific units because I like their designs and think they look cool. Its mostly for fun but I wouldn't mind if it could win.

No forgeworld.

So the models I want to use are terminators, centurions, and dreadnoughts.

Anyone here would likely be more able to help you if you provided a list that we can offer insights and advice for.

What chapter or chapters are you thinking about using? Are you open to other things? What kind of terminators, dreadnoughts, and centurions? Are you thinking of taking a battalion?

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I will likely be using either the ultramarines or iron hands chapter tactics.

I'm open to most options but I want my elite choices to be terminators or dreadnoughts, and my heavy support choices to be devistator centurions... And having my HQs be terminators or primaris so they are larger than normal marines would be neat.

Having a battalion would help make the list more playable which would mean I could put it on a table at my local store, instead of just at home.

You'll need troops, so will you be going with just scouts to max the points for the big stuff?, Do you want the dreads for firepower or fighting? You'll be small on numbers, I'd recommend taking dreadnought from the index, using the dual auto cannon dreads either venerable or regular, for the dakka, and may be venerable dreads with auto cannon and lascannon load out. Also with the point reductions think about mortis dreadnoughts with dual twin las cannons. Use the TH/SS termies for the close combat
