Raven Company List for 1500 points

So today I figured I put my 1500 point list out there for the world to see,  I'm fairly confident that its not conventional, that allot of people will say its not competitive but that being said the idea for the next project after wolf company was to go beyond the meta game and look at a list that was a challenge on the table to push my skill on the table.

So I've mentioned before the rational for this list is a strike force- more like the 1st wave of a planet assault.

So that means drop pods- no tracked armor at all- dreadnaughts (because I like them) and terminators.

1500 Pts - Blood Angels Roster

Total Roster Cost: 1497

HQ: Reclusiarch in Terminator Armor

Elite: Sanguinary Priest
2 Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour,  Power Sword

Elite: Terminator Assault Squad 5#
2 Terminator with Lightning Claws,
2 Terminator with Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield,
1 Sergeant with Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield

Elite: Furioso Librarian

Troops: Assault Squad 8#,
5 Assault Squad,
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Sergeant+ Power Fist
1 Drop Pod,

Troops: Assault Squad 8#
5 Assault Squad,
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Sergeant, + Power Fist

1 Drop Pod,

Troops: Scout Squad 5#,
4 Scout, Camo Cloaks
1 Sergeant,  + Camo Cloaks
All with Sniper Rifles

Heavy Support: Stormraven Gunship
+ Hurricane Bolters

Heavy Support: Dreadnought (2#, 155 pts)
1 Dreadnought,  + Twin Linked Autocannon  + Twin Linked Autocannon
1 Drop Pod,

The idea is as follows-  Scouts hunker down on the objective in the back line and snipe units from afar causing pinning tests (hopefully)

Mortis Pattern dreadnaught deploys on table or via drop pod depending on the mission, if its deployed before the game and im dropping an empty drop pod, that pod goes down somewhere as a shot blocker or to add an obstacle to the opponent.

So the other two troops will drop in over time lending support or laying the ground for the storm raven and terminators.

The real focus is that the hammer blow comes in and takes out the heavy units- ive found in play tests that the Furioso Librarian worked really well at tying up or taking out secondary elements and acts as nice distraction while the raven comes in to take out the primary targets.

So far Ive played the list against CSM and Demon lists-  I suspect they where the easy lists and will face issues against gurad and all MEQ lists.

Anyway thats the list- at 2000 points im tempted to get a 2nd raven and some death company.

So what are your thoughts?

cheers
