Lords of Terra: 1750 Marines

The obvious 1750 list is Stelek's Best Of list but we all know I really love AC/LC Preds & Riflemen Dreadnoughts so I'd like to include those in this list. Problem then becomes where to put the HQ? I could take a Las/Plas fact, that sounds good. This will be again a ranged SM list but will suffer a bit from lack of Melta outside a couple of MMs so the question comes down in am I capable of handling higher AVs? My medium to low AV is covered extensively with Typhoons/AC/LC/Riflemen so that's not a problem whilst I still have a strong core with 25 Marines in midfield.

HQ -
Libby w/Null Zone & Avenger

Elites -
Dreadnought w/2x TL autocannon

Dreadnought w/2x TL autocannon

Dreadnought w/2x TL autocannon

Troops -
Marines x5 w/combi-melta, Razorback w/TL plasmagun, lascannon

Marines x10 w/flamer, MM, Rhino

Marines x10 w/flamer, MM, Rhino

Fast Attack -
Land Speeder Typhoon

Land Speeder Typhoon

Land Speeder x2 w/MM & HF

Heavy Support -
Predator w/LC sponsons

Predator w/LC sponsons

Predator w/LC sponsons

Totals : 1740
13 tanks
26 infantry

Again, less midfield presence than the standard Best Of but more ranged firepower. Does this offset the lack of meltas though? And anti-infantry should still be relatively secure w/the change in Dread & Predator variants. Would it be better to run the Best Of Marines w/Riflemen Dreads or AC/LC Preds alone?

As I've said and will continue to say, once you bring the foot PA hq just go ahead and add a double melta IST squad. In this list I'd be tempted to drop a Pred and run 2.

Problem with that is:
a) DH codex will have been re-released by that point so I might have better options :O (though I can still use WH)
b) I need to buy more Rhinos :p

Will have to see what the rumors offer up but adding in IST squads on Could drop the Las/Plas for an IST in Rhino though.

I like it, though I'd be more inclined to squadron up the Typhoons over the MM/HF so you can spread the melta loving around.
