5 Assault Marines - 110

HEAVY SUPPORT
Dreadnought - 150
Heavy Flamer, Multi-Melta, Drop Pod

Dreadnought - 150
Heavy Flamer, Multi-Melta, Drop Pod

Dreadnought - 160
Heavy Flamer, Multi-Melta, Drop Pod, Locator Beacon

TOTAL: 2500


Okay, so the general idea is that nothing is on the field for anyone to shoot. This may lead to them moving there units out, leaving them more vulnerable.

The Drop Pods will Drop Pod Assault. 5 will drop down the first turn where needed. If there is alot of infantry, The Death Company Dread will drop down, and the others will drop down near if. If there is a concentration of tants, the Melta Dread w/ Beacon will drop down near them.

Just a side note, if you feel i have to many Blood Talons or not enough Dreadnought CCW. I can change those, as they don't cost anything.

The Death company now have a Chaplain. (as many asked for in the previous list) None other the Astorath the Grim. He will help them alot, with re-rolls to hit and wound. The Assault marines are for objectives mostly, and to hit where needed.

Questions and comments anyone? I would like to finalize this list Soon, as I plan on buying the stuff soon. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.:grin:

Cheers, :victory:

I appreciate everyones advice alot, but I need to mention 2 things.

1. This is meant to focus on dreadnoughts, which is why I am fitting in so many of these.

2. This wasn't built as a mega competitive list. It is mostly for fun, as the idea of 8 dreadnoughts in a army sounds fun.

Now, is it worth taking Astorath? Or would I be better with a fancy chaplain dude ( forgot the name... Starts with R...) and for objective games, my (poorly thought out) strategy is: clear the enemy from their objectives with force and hold onto some of mine? It's gotta work.

I am typeing this on my iPod, so sorry for any mistakes/random words.

C&C are welcome.

Cheers.
