Really Quick Shooty Blood Angels...

I haven't decided what the BA list I will be building for myself as a permanent fixture in my army cycle is going to be yet...and this idea came to me, half-formed, this evening...so time to type it up and see how it's figuring.  Get some feedback, too.


 TROOPS:

5 Assault Marines:
Meltagun, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 165


5 Assault Marines:
Meltagun, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 165

5 Assault Marines:
Meltagun, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 165

5 Assault Marines:
Meltagun, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 165

Do I want Flamers instead?  I thought Meltas because they aren't expensive, and great in a pinch, but open to changing it.

HEAVY SUPPORT:

10 Devastators:
4 Missile Launchers, Razorback [Heavy Flamer] - 265

10 Devastators:
4 Missile Launchers, Razorback [Heavy Flamer] - 265

10 Devastators:
4 Missile Launchers, Razorback [Heavy Flamer] - 265

That takes me to a spent total of (265x3) + (165x4) = 795 + 660 = 1455.  Not terrible.  Let's continue.  We need an HQ...

HQ:

Librarian:
Shield, Sword - 100

Too good to ignore, really.  Infernus Pistol and Melta Bombs both worth considering...I'll come back to it.  Not sure, also, if I may need another Libby for better Shield coverage.

Okay, since this is 2k, let's expand three RAS to use the Razors properly...

+5 Assault Marines;
Flamer, Hand Flamer - 105

We take three of those, and put those in L/P'Backs.  The Melta contingents go into the FlamerBacks.  Duality, even if mediocre.  Also, it gives me an effective 7 Scoring Units.  Now, we have spent 415 more than before, so it's tight.  That's 1870, and we NEED a Sang Priest for the firebase of Devs.

Sanguinary Priest: - 50

That leaves us with 80 points to spend, and precious few options.  We have 12 Missiles/turn, at 6 Targets, and 4 Lascannon at 4 more.  We have 3 FlamerBacks for when they get close, and a handful of Meltas as reserve.  We have no anti-Scout defence, so let's settle for that...

Scout Squad:
Sniper Rifles/Boltguns/CCWs... - 75

Not sure what weaponry, needs testing.  Probably Snipers for some light extra anti-MC duty.  Nids.  They change the way you play.  lol

Thoughts? Anyone run anything like this?
