1850 Tournament

I'm entering an 1850 tournament this weekend.  I'm pretty excited to play again.  Stayed up tonight and got my list ready.  Pretty cool stuff, I'll have a Master of The Forge riding around in a Rhino with some Heavy Bolter Devastators hopefully we can use them at relatively short range.  I think a twin-lined Plasma Cutter at BS5 is pretty cool after the three heavy bolters get all the meat shields out of the way.  Also, four dreadnaughts- one of them Venerable and taken as a Heavy Support Choice because of that Master of the Forge so he can score during Big Guns Never Tire.

Here's the list.  I don't care if anyone coming to the tournament sees this, they shouldn't really have a problem with anything in it.  I know dreads are the new dummies on the block, but I always wanted to field an 1850 list like this one.  Simple, heavy on the lascannons (eight of them) so I can use them during the turn when an opponent brings on flyers.  I'll open up with the lascannons and two flakk missile launchers up there after declaring Devastator doctrine.  It might be worth a try.

Comments and criticisms are welcome.  I'm fielding what I wanna see out there, not necessarily a competitive list, still I'm hoping for the best.
