Difficult question to answer. Are you willing to buy more models? Can you tell us about your preferred play style? C:SM offers many approaches to a balanced list. Looking at your model list you're a bit restricted by what you have - so more information would be helpful. Are the devs your only heavy weapons?


Honestly making a list for yourself is a good place to start, and we can start commenting.

Well, first off you don't have much armor, and what armor you do have is quite light.  One each of AV13, AV12, AV11, and AV10 will see each of them go down quite quickly to concentrated enemy fire.  This will leave you without a good part of your firepower.  

Second, is your command squad shooty or choppy?  Assault based teams (since your Captain is riding with them I'm assuming they're choppy) don't work in non-assault vehicles anymore (sadly).


Third, since your model selection is limited I'd go with a foot list, and since you have a lot of terminators you might as well use them.  Deep striking with them will give you some degree of mobility on the table - more if you have a Gate libby.  I'd say use 10-15 termies, along with a couple tac squads and a couple devastator squads.  One HQ should be enough at 1500.


More details when filling out your list will help as well.  Tell us how you plan on using each unit.  The more you tell us, the more specific we can be in our feedback and help you out.

You can't make a balanced (or even a decent) tournament list with those units. 


If you're gonna buy models, get a land raider (classic or crusader, depending on preference, I like classic), another vindicator, aegis defense line with quad-gun, and another rhino, so you have two mechanized tactical squads, and can field something like this:



Libby - terminator armor, null zone, avenger
Tactical squad (10 guys) - ml, flamer, combiflamer, rhino
Tactical squad (10 guys) - ml, flamer, combiflamer, rhino
5 sniper scouts
5 th/ss termies
land raider - multimelta
vindicator - dozer blade
vindicator - dozer blade
aegis defense line - quad gun
