Default Drop Pods 1850

Whereas I am starting a Tau army, it'll be a calm day in the Empyrean before I abandon my Marines.* So, here's the list I usually run.* Any constructive criticism would be appreciated.
TYBB stands for a squad that has bought True Grit and Counter Attack
(i.e. 8x TYBB)
All squad sizes include Sergeants and special weapon carriers and miscellaneous squad upgrades.
Unit points subtotals do not include transports.* Subtotals are given for any seperate entry, for purposes of determing scoring units and points.

Army Total: 1853
Model Count:
48 Infantry (50 wounds)
2 Dreadnoughts
6 Drop Pods

Notes: The Librarian is expensive, I know, but the squad literally eats Marines (and various other infantry).* The Libby can character hunt with relative ease (he's got a Hive Tyrant, Master, 2 other Librarians, Chaplain, Bloodhirster, and a Lord of Change under his belt), as well as use Might of Heroes to eat through infantry.* Removing anything except the frags and meltas would hamper his ability to do both.* Finally, Fear of the Darkness is there for forcing various shooty squads off the table (or silencing their heavy guns).

Any comments?

Edit: fixed bold problem

I might drop both or one scout squad in favor of moor toops, or even another dreadnought. Just my oppinion.
