Tournament Future for 2014


So I'm trying to get my 40k mojo back and attending a few tournament before Adepticon. Whilst I had fun playing with the drop Wolf list at Blog Wars I'm not sure it that competitive especially not in the next two tournaments I've got booked in. Caledonia Uprising and Winter Wars are both run from the same rules pack and operate with two missions each game, one primary, one secondary. Sadly Purge the Alien (kill points) is in all five missions, making a drop list particularly poor. So I'm giving Marines a go. I've come up with the following list so far.

Tigurius
Captain on Bike with Storm Shield and Relic Blade
10 Tacitcal Marines, Plasma Gun in Rhino

5 Marine Bikers, 2 Grav Guns

Thunderfire Cannon

Storm Talon with SkyHammer Missiles

Rune Priest
8 Grey Hunters, Wolf Standard, Melta Gun in Drop Pod

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor, 3 x Servo Skulls, Psychotrope Grenades, Power Armour

 I think its got lots of useful tools to deal with the various threats my main concern is how well they actually gel together as an army. The bikes can handle the monstrous creatures such as Riptides and Wraith Knights, the Storm Talons are pretty good at handling air threats and if I get first turn against a Screamer Star or Seer Council the Thunderfire Cannon can mess them up, badly.

I've a few extra points spare and I'm not sure how to spend them. Possible option include a Stalker for a little more anti-air, beefing up the Captain to a Chapter Master and giving him a few more toys or possibly getting the Inquisitor power level 1 and toys.

Thoughts?
