Is Dorn making the terminators troops?

 

If so, I don't think you need to use fury of the ancients at all? Just have 1 talon of 2 contemptors in elites (you are using 3/4 slots currently)

 

That means you save on the penalty from fury of the ancients?

 

Where are Dorn and the characters going to go? With no transports I don't really understand the plan?

This is why seeking advice is good!

I'll make some adjustments to get my spartan and/or land raider in.

I would also make the second Contemptor a mortis and have dual kheres assault cannons. Would probably get rid of one of the leviathans have give one a drop pod which will give you 265pts so only need 100 more for spartan

Updated. Dumped the RoW and mixed up a few things

Although i now realise i only have 2 scoring units so really need to table my opponent. I can probably swap a HS slot for troops... thoughts on what should go?

I would probably go with something along these lines:
Sigismund 230

15 Breacher Space Marines: Breacher Sergeant; 14 Breacher Space Marines; 3 × graviton gun 320

15 Breacher Space Marines: Breacher Sergeant; 14 Breacher Space Marines; 3 × graviton gun 320

6 Templar Brethren: Chapter Champion (Solarite power gauntlet); 5 Templar Brethren; legion vexilla; melta bombs 245
• Land Raider Phobos 225

8 Tactical Support Marines: Tactical Support Sergeant; 7 Tactical Support Marines; volkite calivers 185
• Rhino 35

7 Terminators: Terminator Sergeant (Vigil pattern storm shield; thunder hammer); 6 Terminators; 6 × Vigil pattern storm shield; 6 × thunder hammer 410
• Spartan Assault Tank: armoured ceramite; flare shield 370

Contemptor Mortis Dreadnought: 2 Kheres pattern assault cannons 180

Contemptor Mortis Dreadnought: 2 Kheres pattern assault cannons 180

Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought Talon
• Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought: Leviathan siege drill; grav-flux bombard; 2 × torso-mounted twin-linked volkite caliver; phosphex discharger 320
• Dreadnought Drop Pod 100

Rogal Dorn 385

3,505 points

The leviathan is best deep striking in bigger games in my opinion as you don't want it to die and it can do quite a lot of damage if it unexpectly drops in their deployment zone. The spartan with terminators in can have dorn and go after the hard hitting units and absorb a lot of damage. The Breacher Squad turn into T5 if you use the Stone Gaunlet ROW and bolters become a lot better. The mortis contemptors have anti-air and can pump out a lot of hits which include rends. You also have Sigismund and the templers which can mince a lot of units in CC.
In the darkess hour, you'll find the truth of who you are.

Ran with the below list

Some stand out units, notably the leviathans and cc contemptor which was man of the match.

The leviathan gravflux bombard is a brutal weapon devastating againt elite infantry. Using that to blast a unit and then charge with the claw is awesome. I was too timid on the use of the phospherex and in future will dump it on the first blob of space marines possible as it slaughters them. I was underwhelmed by the storm cannon.

 

Also, after 3 or 4 games i am completely underwhelmed by dual kheres contemptors. Space marines 3+ make it too easily savable, same with Deredeo with Autocannon, way better to use plasma cannonade i think.

 

Templar bretheren are great, unfortunately i forgot to use the attached Chaplain's zealot special rule a couple of times which  greatly reduced the potency of their charges but still i love these guys.

Xiphon smoked my mates storm eagle in one turn but unfortunately it was after it had dumped fulgim and a unit of pheonix spears pretty much ob top of Dorn. If I'd gotten it on the board in turn 2 the game would have pretty much ended on turn 3.

 

Won the game by a couple of VPs and was very enjoyable. may use refined version of the list again but may replace the breachers with blobs of legionnaires as with all the dreads they are basically just bodies to take objectives.
