no point in shotguns really they just suck..... bolt pistols/ccw are good. 1000 point game eh? well the scouts should be one thing or the other. i personally would ggo 1 squad all snipers=very nasty pinning blow up ok armor unit.

Blood Claws pump out more attacks than the Grey Hunters. Why not use more of them? Other than that beef you have little:
A- Speed
B- Tank killing capability

So, since it's a campaign I expect there will be a lot of "powerful" armies to fight. You wont be able to catch up with or shoot down such armies as the FoF Tau who have powerful shooting and can flee. Also, your lack of tank hunting makes it so armies like Monolith Necron will rip you apart, and just rushing forward will make you a clear target for many foes.

1000 pts...well, you need 2 HQ's, so your vennie dread is obviously HQ one. so for number 2, you'll need something cheap. i recommend a battle leader with frost blade and bolt pistol. just chuck him in a claw squad, and you're rockin'. just use the rune priest mini

as for troops and elites...scouts, obviously . seeing as you lvoe 'em so much. my personal fave setup for scouts is4 scouts, two armed with 2 plasma pistols, one with meltagun and a leader with thunder hammer and plasma pistol. easy, and it can slam most things that crosses its path, especially when they OBEL

beyond that, you probably only have the pts for about 3 squads, and its up to you as to how you mix it up. just remember tho, as its a campaign, you don't wanna go too light on grey hunters, seeing as more than likely you'll be required to hold an objective

just remember to load all your squads with power fists . as many as they can take. you wanna be able to slam anything that gets in your way
