First thought: when I saw this I thought, "there had BETTER be a Land Raider when I scroll down to his heavy support section!!" :)

Do these do well for you on the table? I cant imagine they do well foot slogging, but then I cant imagine they do well deep striking, either.

I haven't actually used this army yet, but when I've deep striked before they've killed at least their share in point. I know Land Raiders are good but I don't have the money for one and I dont really wanna spend so many points on a vehicle as it will just soak up too much anti-tank shooting. I know it't got AV14 but I don't particularly want to take the risk.

I have no problem with the Termies as long as you using icons to deep strike them. What I am concerned about is No Rhinos for your guys. If you do not have them I understand then this army is not too bad for what you have. If you do have them you need to get those troops in them right away. It is going to be hard for your army to contest a objective on the other side of the board.

Nah, I don't have any Rhino's but I see what you mean. Thanks for the idea though.

335 points invested in Havocs, Terminators with no Land Raider, and no Rhinos for your squads.

:D

Against even a mediocre shooty army, I see you tabled by Turn 4. On objective missions, I see you slowly crawling forward as you are mowed down by every enemy gun on their side of the board. In CC, I see you failing horrifically.

I really see absolutely no upsides to this army, aside from Obliterators.

Completely revamp everything about this list, if you want to be competitive.

yeah really this is not good.
Rhinos always for you troop choices (or land raider).
Termies cheap with combis or a land raider is needed. But I would rather put berzerkers in a land raider.
Dont mix blastmaster with sonic blasters.
Khorne deamon weapon is unreliable and thus bad.

I remember people (including me) commenting on a list of yours some time ago, but you don't seem to have even listened a little to that advise. You are still doing a couple of the baddest things possible with this codex. I advise you to listen to advise and search trough this forum for some good list first before coming up with this kinda list.
