Default 2500 point all comers list

i am entering a tourney and the submission deadline is tonight, need feedback pronto, am playing vanilla marines. 2500 points:

Captain on bike w/ Relic Blade, SS artificer armour, digital weapons, MB
6 man bike squad counted as troops attack bike w/ MM and basic sarge in there

Scout squad 9+telion all snipers except 1 with heavy bolter

Tac squad 10 man, plasmagun lascannon, sarge has powerfist and mb
mounted in rhino w/ sb and hk

tac squad 10 man, plasmagun ML, sarge has PF combi melta and mb
mounted in rhino w/ sb hk

tac squad 10 man flamer lascannon, sarge has chainsword bp mb
mounted in lasback

vindicator
thunderfire cannon
predator lascannons all around

IC dread w/ 2 heavy flamers 2 hk dccw and seismic hammer

3x individual landspeeders with hb and ml

tech marine with full harness and 2 servo arm servitors

this is 2500 exactly, the tac squads will be combat squadded so the heavy weaps can sit on objectives and pop vehicles, all transport vehicles given hk missiles so first turn can barrage. land speeders will be run at 12 inches a turn and pop their missiles every turn, complimented w/ hb fire when they go frag.
the tourney is mostly objectives based, i know i will have a bit of trouble with CC armies but the plan is to shoot em full of holes before they get to me and have the tech marine keep the armor from turning into a parking lot. as i said i need feedback asap please help out

you dread needs a drop pod so he can get stuck in quickly. else he'll be toast before he can do anything more than fire his 2 HKs.

you seem like your captain is loaded for close combat. see if you can take out the bike squad and put a command squad on bikes. add a couple storm shields or meltaguns and power weapons in there. make them something that can support the captain in combat. he's good in CC but without help won't be able to do enough damage.

You've got a 10 man tactical squad mounted in a Razorback. They won't fit.

you dont have to put the squad in the lasback, am gonna combat squad them anyways put the sarge and flamer in there with 3 other guys, the other half, with the lascannon take up a firing position.

i dont have the models to make a command squad on bikes, yet, limited income so still working on that project. way i usually run the captain is the squad is a buffer till he rides up and beats down troops units, relying on his init and armor saves to win the combat, and then his init again to sweeping advance, then run away when casualties are taken in shooting phase, regroup and do it again

I prefer the felaxabilty of missiles in a sniper squad and telion can make for some accurate krak hits, but that's preference for sure.

Tac squad 10 man, plasmagun lascannon, sarge has powerfist and mb
mounted in rhino w/ sb and hk
I think if the sarge has a power fist you could get away with losing the melta bombs.

tac squad 10 man, plasmagun ML, sarge has PF combi melta and mb
mounted in rhino w/ sb hk

tac squad 10 man flamer lascannon, sarge has chainsword bp mb
mounted in lasback

vindicator
thunderfire cannon
predator lascannons all around
Just having the 2 lascannons with the autocannon still makes the vehicle good anti-tank, but 45 pts less. The autocannon is still good for light armour and heavy infantry.

IC dread w/ 2 heavy flamers 2 hk dccw and seismic hammer

3x individual landspeeders with hb and ml

Nice to see a thunderfire cannon being used. Underated weapon IMO. Good list IMO, I'd personally tweak it a bit, but that's just how I'd play it.

Just a man, with a man's courage...and Terminator armour.
