HQ
Captain + Lightning Claw = 115
Honour Guard + Razor back = 170

Elite
Sanguinary Priest + Lightning claw + Melta bomb = 70
Sanguinary Priest + Lightning claw + Melta bomb = 70

Troops
Tactical Squad + missle launcher + Power Fist + Razor back + Lascannon with TL plasma = 285
Tactical Squad + missle launcher + Power Fist + Razor back + Lascannon with TL plasma = 285

Heavy Support
Predator + Side Lascannon = 135
Predator + Side Lascannon = 135
Vindicator = 145

Fast Attack
Baal Predator + HB + AC = 145
Baal Predator + HB + AC = 145

Total – 1700

Alright so basically my plan is going to gona split up my tac squads into combat squads. The two 5 man squad with missle launchers will sit at deployment trying to take out light vehicles. The Sanguinary Priests will join the other squad in the razor back with the power fist sgts. These guys will just head towars objectives while my HQ units will try to provide frontline support.
The two Baal Predators will give fire support while the rest of the army moves, same goes with the Predators but will try to take out tanks. Hopefully there will be enemy transports that will be wrecked and have forced its passengers to disembark cause thats where the vindi comes in. Also the razor backs will try to destroy any remaining vehicles.
The only concern I have is that there is only 28 units in power armor. 10 will be at the back of the army and 18 upfront. So hopefully FnP will help the guys out in the front line.

So thats the plan so far. Any tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

this list is basically space marines except for speciel preds and preists but i like it i think missle laucher is a waste bc your moving them up in razor backs and you give them a power fist? hevey weapons are ment to stay back not charge well good list maby some slight tweaks thats my 2 cents

Captains are not worth the points to be honest. They're a combat unit and only an alright one. You'd be better changing him to a librarian so you have some psychic defense and his power can boost your attack potential much better.

The honour Guard I think they'd be best tooled up to either be a CC unit, Blood champion, chapter banner all that malarky, or an anti tank unit with 4 meltaguns. as they are you basically have a 5 wound sanguinary priest and not much else.

Sanguinary Priests they're alright. I personally prefer mine as cheap as possible but it's more personal preference. One of them doesn't have a meltabomb with the points by the way ;)

Troops I think are fairly bad to be honest. that's 570pts put into 2 units. if you had them as assault squads, both 5 man, with meltagun and fist, same transport, it'd be 380pts for that, add in a devastator squad with 4 missiles and it's 510pts. Just saved you 60pts, got 2 meltaguns, and 2 more missiles into the back field.

Baals what equipment do they have? apart from the heavy bolters is it flamestorm or assault cannon? Go for assault cannon. Flamestorms are good for suicide naked outflanking and not much else on them to be honest.

Autolas Preds are good, always a good anti tank option.

Now the Vindi. I personally love the Vindicator but I don't think it fits here. They work in multiples, either 2 or 3 of them. But just one they are close to useless. say a unit is taken out of a transport. If that fires unless the person threw them out willy nilly they will get a cover save, with 2 it's very hard to get cover from both of them you see. I think the points from that would be better spent elsewhere to be honest.

Hope this Helps. Note I am not telling you how to do things, only giving you my advice on certain topics and it;s their for you to use or not. It's your list and your Choice :D

Thanks for the input guys.

@ the hive minds friend: I'm gona combat squad the tac units so the guy with the rocket launcher sits back while the rest moves up in Razor backs with the PF sarge. Though there is a good chance I will change them tanks to Lord Reevan suggestion.

@ Lord Reevan: Whoops my bad for not adding the points right and not telling the kit out of the baal.
Well the sang priest is tooled up that way cause I think in cc the opponent will attack him first so I much rather let the sang priest attack first with the LC to do as much damage as possible rather than a chain sword.
Also many thanks for the input with my troop choice. I didnt realize that. So I will change up my list abit. Esp for the suggested free points you showed me. Many thanks.

Another tactic if you wish to save more points would be to have the priests stay in the razorbacks. the 6" bubble comes from the hull of the razor so the troops should still get it, Plus they can't really be taken out in combat. It's not necessary though your set up is probably the nest option I'd go for so it is completely up to you :D
