I prefer that the models have the wargear as opposed to proxying. I'm not sure what armies I will be up against. I'm trying to build a list that will be good against multiple armies. I have a little bit of flexibility with the list because I am still trying to iron out what troops I will be getting. I'm not too excited about putting a power fist on a wound 1 sergeant, but I am trying to build up a pre-painted army. I'm not very good at painting and that was a big reason for not sticking with Warhammer 40k before because my miniatures look awful even after all of my practice. I'm ok with minor touch-ups but nothing serious. Thank you so much for the response!

Thank you for the input! The Dreadnought does not have magnets but the arms just pop off so that's a plus, I have a Assault Cannon for him as well. I have thought about what you said so I made a new list with some of the recommendations. Here goes.

HQ (105 pts)

Chaplain
-Digital Weapons
-Melta Bombs

Troops (280 pts)

Tactical Squad
-(4) Space Marines
-(1) Space Marine Sergeant
-(1) Flamer
-(1) Rhino

Tactical Squad
-(4) Space Marines
-(1) Space Marine Sergeant

-(4) Scouts
-(1) Scout Sergeant

Fast Attack (115 pts)

Should I drop the rhinos at this point limit and pick up more space marines?
