A Vision of Terminators

I really want to build a list that surrounds the following unit combination:

-5 Terminators with Lightning Claws
-Land Raider for Transport
-Dante tucked in behind the Land Raider until the time to strike

I really like the idea of the Terminators with the long Land Raider charging distance being supported by Dante. With Dante close by, they will get Preferred Enemy.

As a result, they will be rerolling to hit and rerolling to wound.
If I can keep Corbulo and the DC close, then they would be under the effect of Furious Charge, Preferred Enemy, Lightning Claws, and the long Land Raider charge.

The only problem is that this unit is a huge points sink. I still want to build a list around it and give it try!

What else would you expect to put in your list after the three you mentioned (+Corbulo and Death Company)? Whoever you play will definitely view that as the biggest threat bubble.

Yeah, that takes up a huge number of points... what about the compulsory stuff? Do you still have the points left for that?

Just off the top of my head (I mean without getting the codex out and doing the math), I believe I would have about 1000 points left.

5 Termies in a Land Raider comes out to about 500 . . . plus Dante, plus Corbulo comes to about 800 points (with one free DC for the Termies).

In our 1850 environment down here, that would leave roughly 1000 points.

I may have just talked myself into it.
