Icon list for summer tourney (3k... we play big games here)

I have a summer tourney series coming up and have been tossing around ideas, this one came to me tonight, would like some feed back if at all possible. gonna break from my normal way of posting so that i don't have to annotate everything, will post by units/what is riding in what.

Land raider w/ MM
10-man tac squad, plasmagun, sarge has PF
heavy support and troops

Land raider w/ MM
10-man tac squad, plasmagun, sarge has PF
Heavy support and troops

LRC w/ MM
Terminator squad 7+ sarge 7x chain fists, cyclone ML
Elite and dedicated transport

LRR w/ MM
Ortan Cassius
Terminator assault squad 4+ sarge, all w/ th/ss
HQ Elite and Dedicated transport

LRC w/ MM
Assault squad 10 man, 2 flamers, sarge has plaspistol and PF stripped of jump packs
Heavy Support and Fast attack

Razorback TL LC DB
Tactical Squad Flamer ML Sarge has PF
Troops and dedicated transport, will be combat squadded

Attack bike w/ MM
Fast Attack

The idea is to, in an objectives game, have the two regular LR park on objectives with their tac squads and be pill boxes. the LRR will hunt down heavy infantry concentrations, dumping cassius and company right in the thick of it, with the lrc assault squad moving in to support. the other lrc will deliver it's shooty termies into the enemy lines and then fill a split role of infantry and light armor hunting. attack bike was put in to soak up the extra 50 points i had left, will hide behind the land raiders until it is time to zoom out and melt a tank or two. feed back will be appreciated mostly im looking for ways to make this a little more of an all comers thing, but i think that it will have a pretty good time of things as is, just wanting more pairs of eyes looking it over to see what i missed.

Edit: later idea has the attack bike and 4 chainfists being dropped to add on Antaro Chronus to one of the regular land raiders. Thoughts?

2nd thought i had... can i keep the jump packs on the assault squad? i could not find rules saying that they cannot mount in a vehicle if they have packs, only that they get a vehicle for free if they ditch theirs, not using the free vehicle, using the land raider instead, so do they still get jump packs?

Land raider w/ MM

Switch the plasma for a melta

Land raider w/ MM

Heavy support and troops

Same here.

LRC w/ MM
Terminator squad 7+ sarge 7x chain fists, cyclone ML
Elite and dedicated transport

Drop 4 of the chainfists.

LRR w/ MM
Ortan Cassius
Terminator assault squad 4+ sarge, all w/ th/ss
HQ Elite and Dedicated transport

I don't really think Cassius is worth his points. Drop him for Vulkan.

LRC w/ MM
Assault squad 10 man, 2 flamers, sarge has plaspistol and PF stripped of jump packs
Heavy Support and Fast attack

Good here, but I don't think the pistol is entirely necessary.

Razorback TL LC DB
Tactical Squad Flamer ML Sarge has PF
Troops and dedicated transport, will be combat squadded

Switch out the TL LC, for las/plas as you get more bang for your buck.

Attack bike w/ MM
Fast Attack

Kind of an odd thing here. I would possibly buy an extra razorback for one of the tax instead (just don't embark in it) for covering vehicles but still getting another TL HB in as well.

The idea is to, in an objectives game, have the two regular LR park on objectives with their tac squads and be pill boxes. the LRR will hunt down heavy infantry concentrations, dumping cassius and company right in the thick of it, with the lrc assault squad moving in to support. the other lrc will deliver it's shooty termies into the enemy lines and then fill a split role of infantry and light armor hunting. attack bike was put in to soak up the extra 50 points i had left, will hide behind the land raiders until it is time to zoom out and melt a tank or two. feed back will be appreciated mostly im looking for ways to make this a little more of an all comers thing, but i think that it will have a pretty good time of things as is, just wanting more pairs of eyes looking it over to see what i missed.

Chronus is really not worth his points so I wouldn't advise that. The LR rush is a pretty good tactic against orks and non- highly competitive players, but may suffer against certain builds.

I don't believe they can keep their jump packs and ride in a land raider. You can only keep jump packs in a Storm Raven as far as I know because it specifically mentions them taking up two slots instead of one. The jump packs are used to disembark.
