Wow!  That's an average of about 82 points per model.  :o  What do you have, 200 tanks and 20 Tactical Marines? ???

11 land raiders makes up a lot of points with mor termies that can fit in them, 3 titans made up a lot of points too. remember the 18000 was stretching my characters so they had some spam on them as it almost every upgrade possible without conflicting another rule ei my commander does not have a power weapon, power fist, relict blade and the rest of the weapons but they all had melta and such. its not hard to make a base 350point tac unit without a transport. would i bring my list to tournament, absolutly not unless i bought more models and actually made a thoughtout army list.

Army Name: Dark Angels 3rd Company., 1st, 2nd, and 10th Support Elements.
Total points: 5000 (Approx)
Total Models: 125
Painted Points: 2000
Painted Models: 55

The plan is to expand to a full Company of Angels. I've already got 30 Tacticals, 10 Devs and 10 Assault Marines, and Command Squad, so I'm halfway there. After that, it'll be to bump the Ravenwing (1500) and Deathwing (1000) to 2K each.

I have a mixed collection of Space Wolves and Space Marines :D

Army list(s) break down as follows;

Space Marines:
1x Chapter Master
1x Captain
1x Dreadnought
1x Assault Squad
2x Terminator Squads (Storm Bolters and Power Fists)
1x Terminator Squad (Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon, Cyclone missile launcher, Chainfists) [I like to Deepstrike these guys right behind enemy vehicles or tough units and then use overwhelming firepower to slaughter them before the Assault Squad drops in and butchers them in close combat)
4x Tactical Squads (2x Plasma Pistols, 2x Heavy Flamers, 2x Rocket Launchers [Forgot the name], generally fight in 10-man squads so that I can confidently hold objectives and neutralize enemy attacks with heavy fire power)

Space Wolves:
2x Blood Claws (8- men)
Canus Wolfborn
Lukas the trickster
Arjac Rockfist
Wolf Guard terminators (Assault cannon, heavy flamer)


I'm not sure on the points values (haven't been able to get the new codex's since the local shop closed down.

I like to use the Space Wolves against Tau/Imperial Guard forces since Canus, Arjac and Lukas have a couple tricks up their sleeves and the Wolf Guard terminators can be broken up to lead the Blood Claws, adding some serious close combat hitting power.

The Space Marines are generally employed against Eldar, Dark Eldar, Necron, Tyranid and Imperial Guard armies. The tactical squads add weight of firepower to the initial attacks, the dreadnought (in a Drop Pod) strikes onto my opponents strongest side with a Terminator Squad dropping in beside them and pinning down the heaviest troops, another Terminator Squad [With autocannon and missile launcher] drops into the rear of the enemy and uses their heavy firepower to tear chunks out of the central battle-line while the assault squads jump in and throw their melta bombs on enemy vehicles or charge into combat with large enemy squads to pin them down. The tactical squads (lead by the Captain) begin to grind forward while the Chapter Master calls down an orbital bombardment on the enemy objectives and leads the third Terminator Squad into combat with the nearest enemy units.

The Space Marine tactic works well against most armies in my experience :)
