first i dont think your alowed to put up individual point costs.
2nd.. i dont get the combi plasmas..are you planning on combat squading? if so go plasma cannon plasma gun/melta.
also what kind of terminators are you using..what the extra 15 points for?
are you taking a pred without sponsons? if so you mightaswell just take another vindicator for almost the same points.

if you want more advice give us arun down the tactics behind the units

He hasn't put up individual points costs? What you smoking?

Combi-plasma's are decent on Minotaurs - the reroll to hit ensure's they'll hit near enough every time and won't blow up. However, there's a lot of 1 shot weapons there. Lasplas is pretty much my go-to, maybe missile launchers if I'm short of points. Just... erm, leave the RBacks at home. Shoot at Rhino's, or shoot at the lone Rhino with a Lascannon on top? Hashtagwhatwouldyoudo?

For the scouts, I think Shotguns or Bolters work better. If running them as an assault unit, give them a fist.

Terminators - why do these cost so much? Why are they not Assault Terminators? If running a shooty unit, then Legion of the Damned do it better. Moloc actually makes AssTerms good. Not sure on the Crusader personally - a Redeemer does it better and cheaper.

How have you got 4 Heavy Support?

The Crusader is a bit naff. Take a Redeemer instead, you can still carry your Terms+Moloc. The Siege Shield is just bloat, drop it and take the Dozer instead. The LasPredator isn't worth it unless going for full Lascannon. Alternatively, give it a Dozer, drop it to an Autocannon and just send your 80point AV13 ram at full pelt into enemy tanks.

Dropping the Combi-plasma, costing the Terminators properly, dropping to a Redeemer, dropping the Razorback nets you a further 175pts if I've added up correctly. That's going to make your 5man squad full size, give you lascannons on all the tacticals and meltabombs on the sergeants (145), a fist on the scout sergeant to 170, and then 5points to spend as you desire, maybe an auspex for the scout sergeant too.
