My biggest problem right now in creating a SM list is that I have not one rhino.....none what so ever, although I do have 1 LR Crusader.. So I am trying to make do with what I have right now. I know that I am missing some anti tank and range fire power. But I think this would be a fun foot list to play. any ideas if I should swap anything out?

If you're going to go all foot, that's cool as it nullifies your opponent's anti-tank weapons to a degree. The problem will be objective-based missions where you will lose the race to objectives and have a tough time taking them from the opposition. Shrike can add some mobility to a foot-based list. I personally think the 50 point librarian upgrade is a waste (50 points is a LOT of points) and I'm not a fan of plasma pistols. Your list will need some real assault power to steal an objective away. I'd try to shave a few points here and there and maybe bulk up your scout squad. They can infiltrate onto an objective or maybe flank march and threaten an objective in your opponent's zone. They can fight tactical squads and the like with a reasonable chance of success. Oh, and lose the shotgun please!

Hmmm

I think I see what you're trying to do with the Libby, He uses both in a turn to go Int 10/Str 6. HULK SMASH!!! He'll have fleet but won't be able to use it unless he breaks off on his own. I'd spring for a Storm Shield on him regardless. Possibly by dropping one termie.

I'd personally drop all the plasma and PW/MB and just go straight to PF. I'd also use a flamer instead with the Assault Squad.

I agree about the scout squad. Put any extra points you can there to bulk out the squad.

the plan was to run the liby up and break off from the other termies, creating a buffer zone of getting shot at while getting to the objective.

the scouts have had a lot of success, even with the odd combination of having one shot gun. but those are the models I have and are the old metal ones, I still want to increse the squad size to ten with the older metal models to keep the look similar. in fact I have had better success with my scouts than with a regular tactical squad.

I know what people are saying about having more PF instead of the PW and pistol combination. I still need to play test as I have only had 3 games testing this combination of PW plasma pistol. I might switch it out yet.

I'll take any two space marines in exchange. I could use bolt pistol/ccw weapon guys if you have them, but bolter guys are fine if not.

I have gone through all my bits and army. I unfortunately do not have any other SM. My army itself is still small.
