Grimaldus over Helbrecht. But generic HQ's can out-preform the named characters easily. And, for much less points.

Neophytes can be dropped. 10 points, but they don't benefit from Accept any Challenge. Oh, btw, in before you're told that Accept any Challenge sucks. Preferred Enemy for you're entire army, for only 50 points? Yes please.

Now, why no rhinos or razorbacks? They are pretty important in any Space Marine list.

My genral tactics where going to be have Helbrecht, Champion and 2 squads of CC Terminators in the LRC's go on a full out charge in. Then have a squad of shooty terminators and all the troops and Landspeeders get into any available cover and just mow the rest of there army down with gunfire.
