Hey all I'm looking to make a fluffy list around the Ultramarines 21st chapter 'the hawks'.

I'm still in the early stages of getting the basics done and am looking for advice from some one who plays the game regularly.

The Hawks have a flier flavour but I don't want to play a list that's not fun to play against. I haven't really played 40k since 5th so I need to be treated as a giant neophyte.

So what I have so far.

A preator

Two ten man tac squads
A ten man cataphactii
(5 extra unbuilt termies)

10 man storm squad, not fully built as am waiting on the power gladius arms upgrades.

So I'm thinking javelins and jet bikes just to keep on the flying theme without spending too many points. I haven't got any tanks yet as I'm undecided on how I want to go. Obviously a storm eagle is on my lists but can't afford it just yet. I'm looking to aim at around 2000 point. Thanks all

Drop Pods?
You could put one of the Dreads in one, and have the other for different unit.

Thanks for the quick feed back. I totally forgot to say that the only things I'm going to try and stay away from are super heavy tanks (the bigger tanks in general) and drop pods. This is only because the tiny bit of Hawklords fluff says that the generally avoid it. My fault for not mentioning it.

On a separate note, do you have a full luna wolves army?

Right so I have been thinking of ways to refine my question as it was a bit broad. I'm now trying to narrow down which aircraft to use.

I have three in mind with a potential forth.

What I already have is listed above. What I know I'm going to add is two speeders and rhinos for troops to move around in.

So I want to add one of the following: Storm eagle, fire raptor, xiphon or caestus. My list so far is super light on heavy armour (I know non of these are massively heavy armour!) which makes me lean towards the storm eagle or caestus, these would let me move troops as well which is the fluff direction I want to go in.

However I do like the idea of a xiphon or fire raptor and two speaders running around causing a mess.

I gave 0 experience with or against heresy flyers and any thoughts would be much appreciated.
