The strategy of this list is to Deep strike everything on the enemy, 1st turn everything on reserve and have the 2 pods dropping down and pop some tanks or eliminate a few numbers in a squad. But my opponent was right about having later being picked one by one by his already group armies of his. The list was quite fun but very tough to beat my opponent. So I want to build a new list which is a very competitive list. I need help and ideas. Here are a few ideas i've gathered from my friends which I want you guy's point of view.

HQ - Get Mephiston as he is most feared by Tyranids, eldars and tanks.
- Libby
- Gabriel Seth (I guess he is an okay hero)
- Captain with DLC accompanied by Honour Guards with 4 meltaguns
- Reclusiarch ( re-roll to hit & wound for my DC)

Elites- Sanguinary Priest ( FNP and FC buffs for squads
- Assault Termies with few TH&Storm Shields

Troops - Assault Squads with meltas and PF (this is standard )
- Death Company with few PF or PW if there's enough space.

Fast Attacks - Baal Preds (for the scout ability)
- 3 Land Speeder in a squad with Typhoon pattern ( this was interesting when I first heard this, 6 shots of krak/frag missiles...but what do you guys think?)

Dedicated Transport - Rhinos with EA
- Razorback with varieties of AC,HF or LC.
- Land Raider Crusader with EA and m.melta

Heavy - Predator LC built , but I feel that Preds with Autocanon and lascannon side sponson are much better.
- Vindicator, wanted to get this...but I fear for my troops though.
- Stormraven , when this comes out...I'll use it for my DC with dreads.
But do you think they are good in the battlefield?anyone play tested it yet?
- Dreadnaught with 2x TL Autocanon. (this was also good when I read it, more range attacks from a dreddi.
- Lastly, Devastators with 4 missile launchers or 3 missiles and 1 LC where it's guided with signum.

So yeah, this is pretty much what I wrote down base on few ppl's idea and suggestion from my friends. But everytime I built a list from this, there's always a problem when what happens when you face with IG, or Tyranids T6 build or hordes like orks. I need help, especially from Vet players out there. Much appreciated =)

oh, and sorry for the long post.
