Default 1500 point list - WIP

Just been messing around with the marine codex recently and I've got an idea for a drop pod list. I'm wondering what people think of it, and if anyone has advice on how to bring it up to 1500 points. Here it is:

Traits: Cleanse and purify
Drawback: Flesh over Steel

Epistolary w/ terminator armour, fear of the darkness, storm bolter
4 Command terminators w/ assault cannon, tank hunters
Drop Pod
Total: 362

Ordo Malleus Inquisitor w/ emperors tarot, bolt pistol, chainsword, melta bombs

6 Veterans w/ 2 plasma guns, tank hunters
Drop pod

10 Scouts w/ bolters
Drop pod w/ storm bolter

10 Scouts w/ bolters
Drop pod w/ storm bolter

8 Space Marines w/ 2 plasma guns
Drop Pod

8 Space Marines w/ 2 melta guns
Drop Pod

Total Points: 1232
Total Models: 48 (5 Terminator, 21 Carapace, 22 Power armour)

Veterans can't take two plasma guns with Cleanse and Purify, only tactical squads.

With Flesh Over Steel, each drop pod takes up a fast attack slot... Not to mention you only need a minor drawback! But I'll get to that.

I've gotta ask, what's the inquisitor gonna do? Being the only model on the field has gotta be pretty lonely. I think it's a bit expensive just to get the tarot, considering he'll never make it into close combat with a tank. Just give him a bolter, I guess.

Get sergeants with power fists in every squad, except maybe the vet squad. That'll bring you up by 120 points.

Drop the storm bolter on the libby... worthless, really.

Ok, for the veterans, make them a tac squad and take the trait Suffer not the Works of Heretics, so you can give them Tank Hunters. Get the drawbacks Eye to Eye and something like Death Before Dishonour; whatever you want on the minor really (well, minus the psyker and ally one).

Ok, giving the inq. a bolter in exchange for everything but the tarot, dropping the libby's storm bolter will get you 11 points. Tack on 120 points for the four vet sarges and you're at 1341.

159 points is enough for a dread. Add one in: heavy flamer, extra armour and a pod. You now have 9 points.

You now have 9 points. Did you remember to get your libby Tank Hunter? If not, then you've got 6. Maybe bionics or something on your libby.
