Idea being arcus, scorpius and quad mortars take on armour and troops
Gal vorbak in spartan to get up in your face along with the outflanking vets
Plasma gun squad might take one of the rhinos from the vets to get forward and kill key units
The troop squad acts as bodyguards for praetor and centurion
Termies can walk forward as bullet magnets
And contemptor mortis can deal with flyers

A lot of unnecessary stuff. I honestly don't see any point in taking the Centurion or those min sized Veterans with power weapons in Rhinos. Ditch Pride of the Legion and just get Tacticals instead or drop the Tacs and get 10 man sized shooty Veterans.

Also why would you ever put a Praetor with Tacticals when you have Gal Vorbak in a Spartan?

Tactical support squad needs a Rhino. And why take those footslogging Terminators? Just a point sink with no real value.

You have to take a second hq centurion or chap as WB requirement but yes all the rest I agree with spiritual liege play as pride for all your troops. Vets are very powerful these days (maybe too much) and maybe a bit more gal vorbak to fully use the big capacity of the spartan

Ah, I forgot the WB requirement. But even then, a Chaplain would be more useful.

Zardu Layak is quite good for this '. He is a chaplain and can use cursed earth to buff the gal vorbak. A very good hq but quite fragile cause only 2 wounds
