Power Armoured Paint: Carcharodons Astra prepare for battle

Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Frater.  First Founding's Doubles 40K tournament will be here very soon and so I'm happy to present the traditional pre-event Army List and picture post.

I'm taking the Carcharodons Astra to their very first event, and I've decided to take a variety of the units I've painted up over the last couple of years.  Whilst it's not the most optimised Space Marine list it does have some (shark) teeth, and is a lot of fun to play.

The force is commanded by a Jump Captain with his favourite Hammer-Axe, and a Primaris Lieutenant with the Ex Tenebris Relic sniper gun.

The Troop choices comprise 3 Intercessor Squads; 2 are armed with Bolt Rifles and Power Swords, whilst the 3rd has the heavy Stalker Bolt Guns:

The two identically armed squads will advance up the table to take ground, along with the fearsome Aggressors.

Fire support is provided from a variety Heavy Support units. Firstly there are Eliminator Snipers to take out enemy commanders:

Artillery support is provided by the fearsome Thunderfire Cannon and its Techmarine Gunner:

And finally Anti Tank fire is provided from the Lascannon armed Devestators:

The complete army list has a few tricks built into it, including Raven Guard deployment shenanigans, and the Relic Thunder Hammer (Damage 4!) providing an extra element against vehicles.
My team mate has an infantry heavy Deathwatch list with a few tricks of it's own; we should have a lot of fun on the day.  I'll provide an After Action Report and let all know how the Carcharodons fare on the battle field.
