You want to pick 3 squads to go with him. Stern guard are good, devastators are good. I would take a total of 30 infantry to go with Lias Issodon in 3 squads of 10 sternguard or devastators.
Lieutenant is good. Venerable dreadnoughts are good at shooting.
Is it worth filling out the devastators, wouldnt it be better to take another for the points?
Got myself a starter sett for Chrismas, 1 terminator captain, 1 venerable dreadnought and 10 marines. First thought put a storm shield on the captain instead of the storm bolter, put a chaplin head and some other stuff on the venerable for a dreadnought chaplin, and make a some more sternguard and another devastator squad of the 10 man?
yes you should totally fill out the Devastators, marines are cheap enough and you want to protect those weapons and have some meat on the squad.
Sternguard are neat but they don't average as much damage as you might think, Imo
you want them for their bolters and Stratagem, but Devs
can put out more damage overall. Grav Cannons are optimal, I think. 10 Sternguard and 20 Devs
seems best for Lias.
