Since E&C pointed out that I hadn't updated the thread (or my sig).

This is the version that is currently intended to go in the NetEA army book.

Major changes:
Devastators no longer have the Land Raider upgrade
Terminator formation removed (don't worry, it's in a different form).
Land Raider formation gains the First Company upgrade
Predators gain the Land Raiders upgrade
Dreadnought formation removed.
Armoury formation gains several upgrades

Armoured Support upgrade adjusted
The Predators upgrade was merged into Armoured Support.
Land Raider Prometheus removed, Damocles merged into Commander upgrade
First Company upgrade created - Land Raider formations can now add Terminator units for +75 points each
Land Raiders now adds one or two Land Raiders
Support Weapons upgrade reduced to two weapons

Basic Thunderhawk reduced to 225.

Anyone interested in trying out some builds? Even a concept game run solo is helpful!

Let me be the first to welcome our new overlord, I mean, sub-AC, and start with a question from the peanut gallery: Could the AoS please have a mision statement added to the list? Is this a portrayal specific campaign, or a period in time, or particular faction? What distinguishes this army from Codex marines?

Ha - ALL HAIL THE HYPNOTOAD AC! ;D

Yes this list is lacking a mission statement. I'll craft a more detailed one (and a new dev thread/PDF soon) in the updated version but in short:

Marine Amoured Breakthrough List.

Focus on marine armour formations while minimizing and relegating infantry to a supporting role. No Inf garrisons (read scouts) and teleporty termies but enhanced access to powerful tank formations and options.

Ah, sorry to hear that. I was hoping for a viable ground-pounding combined arms assault Marine list (which AoS seems to be structured for at the moment, with the limited air and titan support). Isn't "Armoured Breakthrough" also Scions of Iron's thing?

Inverse. They're (SoI) the combined arms heavy mech infantry list. Actually the SoI fluff is they're a Iron Hands successor. IH being a high intensity combined arms themed force in the fluff after all.

Basically SoI are Mech Inf with lots of Armour
AoS (will be) Armour with some supporting Heavy Inf

There's plenty of overlap here as is so why this needs more distinguishing characteristics and theme like representing the famed Godhammer formations of LR Terminus the IF (or was that the UM?) leverage or the BA whatchamacallit Predator zerg formation from 40k.

I'd suggest we spend more cycles on getting the SoI more attractive for use first beig an approved list. Some of it is the hesitancy of players to get out of their comfort zone but the list does need some boosts. I've actually come around to the idea of RA5+ predators recently after having a fresh think on it. It DOES fit and reduced the annoying crutch of TBrick + Warhound a-go-go of Codex.
