Good. Possibly the best HQ choice in the game

Elites

Dreadnought

What is he armed with? The best way to outfit dreads is either with Asscan/dccw or 2 TL autocannons

Troops

Sgt & 4 Scouts, Melta-bombs

The only way to run scouts is with sniper rifles and camo cloaks with a ML

Sgt & 4 Marines, + 5 Marines, Powerfist, Flamer, Missile Launcher
Rhino

Good, I would run with a flamer and a combi-flamer with PW though. And change your Rhino to a razorback and combat squad them.

Sgt & 4 Marines, + 5 Marines, Powerfist, Meltagun, Missile Launcher
Rhino

See above

Total = 750pts

With what?

Troops

Sgt & 4 Scouts, Melta-bombs
Agreed with the above, snipers with ML and Telion are the best combo.

Sgt & 4 Marines, + 5 Marines, Powerfist, Flamer, Missile Launcher
Rhino
Solid, yet as the others have said, a razorback might be better.

Since they are big on Librarians I wonder if using the BA codex might work well for Silver Skulls. What do you all think?

I think you need some armour. Throw 2 predators in there or a predator and vindicator, don't know what to swap for.

other than that yeah, same as comments above.

considering that this is based on the Battleforce set, it's good, but it does feel disjointed.

still i understand trying to build an army as cheaply as possible.

good hunting.

Looks pretty good man. The only other thing that I can see is maybe giving the sgt in the squad your combat squading a PW. With only 6 guys to allocate wounds to and him having to go last, their is a chance he might not live that long. And I would give the same squad a flamer. You will then have two flame template weapons to hit an enemy with before you charge them!!
