How does this look, and what could I expect on the tabletop?

Thunderhawk Gunship - 200
- Assault Detachment w/ Captain - 225
- Assault Detachment w/ Chaplain - 225

Landing Craft - 350
- Tactical Detachment w/ Librarian, 3 Rhinos, Hunter - 425

Well, if you want to actually drop this force in, you will need some space assets. You can still launch the craft as standard fliers, but a space craft may give you more flexibility.

Personally, I find that the drop pod Marine force is far more useful. That said, the Marine aircraft are nice models...

What a funky list!

Personally, I don't *think* it'd do all that well, as those Landing Craft are hella expensive (Eating into your points budget), but it might just be so incredibly mobile that it would win through.

I do Devs and Assault Marines in THawks. I've had less than stellar luck with just Assault Marines.

I agree with CyberShadow. The list would do much better in Drop Pods and have a lot more points for other goodies like aircraft

IMO Landing Craft are not as effective as Drop Pods.

Certainly interesting list. I have only 1 LC so it would be tad hard to test. I share the question on how well that would manage once it hits on the ground. You do have chance to kill 4 targets on air assaults, but is it enough ...

Blast, I forgot the spaceship. That's going to eat into my model count even more. Hmmm... what to cut...

I would use them as aircrafts instead of planetfall. So in that sense, you don't need spacecraft.

Taking into account the needed orbital craft, I figure I should probably do drop pods for the Tactical detachments.

Battle Barge - 350

Thunderhawk Gunship - 200
- Assault Detachment w/ Captain - 225
- Assault Detachment - 175

Terminator Detachment w/ Teleport, Chaplain - 375

Tactical Detachment w/ Drop Pods, Librarian - 350

Tactical Detachment w/ Drop Pods, Librarian - 350

Scout Detachment w/ Drop Pods, Sniper - 175

Landing Craft - 350
- Predator Detachment w/ 2 Vindicators - 450
