After deciding to create my own chapter of space marines, I have tried many lists to try and get an idea of what I want to play. My goal is to have a balanced list that I can play against any army and at least have a chance of winning. Recently I have been using lists with Vulkan, and have had good results. Anyways, here is the most recent list I have made. Tell me what you think. Comments and advice are most welcome.

HQ:
Great Wyrm Zaccheus Thorne[Vulkan] 190

TROOPS:
10 man Tac Squad 255
Meltagun, ML, PF, Combi-Flamer
Rhino w/Hunter Killer Missile

10 man Tac Squad 255
Meltagun, ML, PF, Combi-Flamer
Rhino w/Hunter Killer Missile

10 man Tac Squad 205
Flamer, MM, PF, Combi-Melta

ELITES:
6 man Sternguard Squad 265
PF, Combi-FlamerX2, Combi-Melta
Razorback w/Twin-Linked Lascannon

FAST ATTACK:
Landspeeder 70
MM, HF

HEAVY SUPPORT:
Land Raider 260
MM


Vulkan and the Tac Squad w/o a transport go in the Land Raider.

I'd do one less tac squad (seems a lot of scoring units for total points) and no land raider, add one meltagun and 2 more combi-meltas to the sternguard. Combat squad a tac and put vulcan in the rhino. Add two heavy supports of the same thing, vindicators, predators, dreads (with-w/o drop pods?). or something you might prefer or already own. Land raider seems a big target for this list and likely to be picked off vs. a good opposing army, where I don't see a huge retaliation force, say, if you plan on the land raider being shot down to buy some time for others to make their way in.

Just my thoughts.

Thanks for the advice Isarofeen. So far I have only been playing against my buddy who plays Imperial Guard. He usually spends a lot of his firepower shooting at the Land Raider, but it has been more reliable in getting my troops across the board to get at him than rhinos. I would consider a vindicator or predator, but I don't own one. I haven't had the best of luck using Dreads against him either.

Any other help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.
