nice long list!

first thoughts;

- it looks like 3 of your termie-armoured squads are not going to be mechanised, is this on purpose? Will they be deepstriking?
- mastery lvl 3 on a librarian is almost always useless in my experience. 2 powers per player turn is already really nice, and you can only use 1 shooting power per turn.
- the Dreadknight heavy psycannon has not done well for me so far, the blast just scatters too much. The heavy Incinerator is, in my experience, a much better weapon, mainly because it allows you to target accurately, and, hit multiple squads. Example: flame the transport/vehicle, flames fan out over the infantry standing behind it, followed by a charge on the vehicle. Completely legal, you probably won't destroy the vehicle with the flamer, but you already destroy infantry that will probably charge you on the next turn.

Overall looking good, though I'm not overly confident about your ability to deal with hordes in this setup. (not enough flaming powah!) Perhaps consider a Land Raider Redeemer, with his big AP3 flamestorm cannons, taking out marines without a save on a 2+ (power of the machine spirit even allows you to hit 2 separate squads), short range yes, but great vehicle overall.

Thanks for the comments your right the 3 units of termies would deep strike to support the GM in the landraider and his paladins or maybe 1 of those units might be able to support somewhere else if there needed at the time,the libby would be in storm raven with his paladins supported buy the othere storm raven with another unit of termies! Then they both have a dreadknight that can teleport to help them out! All the normal power armour guy flank round in there rhinos or razors supported buy the shunt move of the interseptors if needed,that's the plan anyway!
I will consider swapping out the heavy psycannon on the dreadknight for a heavy incinerator then as there are bullet magnets and there main goal in my eyes is to get into CC asap
thanks for your input brother

don't have my book with me, but i'm not sure a stormraven can carry 8 models in terminator armor... they count double towards transport capacity.

Otherwise: sounds good to me...

Yeah your right it's 12 models so 6 termies so the first storm raven would have the libby and his 5 paladins and the second would have the 6 termies with brotherhood banner and falchions set up so should be all legal then! Thanks for the heads up I won't change the list as it's there to quickly select units for small points games so when the time comes and I use the storm ravens il just remember to cut the units back to suit the capacity of the gunships as my army is mainly going to be for display!

If you are deepstriking, don't forget the teleport homer upgrade on the librarian and the storm raven.
