Blood Angels Build Request

A Blood Angels army with a overall mobility featuring Dreadnoughts and Sanguinary Guard?  Totally doable.  Man I love these new books and the flexibility they offer.

Librarian w/ Blood Lance, Shield of Sanguinius

Sanguinary Guard - 2 infernus, powerfist, Chapter Banner
Sanguinary Guard - 2 infernus, powerfist
2 Sanguinary Priests

4x Assault Squad - 4 marines, meltagun, infernus pistol, Razorback w/ TL Assault Cannons

Fast Attack
2x Baal Preds w/ TL Assault Cannon

Heavy Support
3x Rifleman Dreads

Total - 2000

Dreads provide the range, ACs provide the midfield suppression, meltas bust up heavy tanks and Sanguinary Guard provide the hammer/mop up.  Hide the expensive dudes behind the Razors and jump out to smash face as needed. 

Input is welcome and appreciated.

I think it would be worth the points to get either lascannons on either the razorbacks or dreads. At least one or two somewhere. On first turn you seem to be lacking against long range armor. Godhammers, russ, Predators, Vindicators, etc.

If I could take out the Riflemans early on, the main thing I would be afraid of would be those Baals coming in.
Not a bad list, but maybe just not my style. I'm can't point out anything too wrong, but just doesn't seem right to me.

Also, I love the cute little hellspawn, I mean bats you have shown

Yeah, there isn't a lot of dakka coming out turn 1. I think, though, that with a lovely 12-18" move and the potential for 6 TL Assault Cannons to show up on somebody's doorstep would make up for the lack of range.

Swapping a Razor or two for las/plas would be an easy fix, or I could try and find points for Hunter Killers.

I think it would actually play out well.

You have just about 12 auto-hit str7 shots to open up transports.

You have ~24 auto-hit str6 rending for av13+. All vehicles are fast so they have a 36" threat range.

My bet on the main weakness on the table is only 20 wounds worth of scoring units.

Thanks for the list, this looks really good. I just picked up the models today.
