Default Blood ravens starter army

Hi guys, don't have the codex to hand but i'm starting a second army (blood ravens) and wanted you to critique my list! I normally play ultramarines who obviously don't have traits so i've got to design this army a bit different; i can't remember the exact traits they have but i know they can all have true grit and infiltrate pretty much, so here goes;

Remember i don't have the codex to hand so don't know points exactly;


Master commander, terminator armour, storm bolter and power weapon. (110 points-ish)

10x marines, bolters, true grit and infiltrate. Frags, 1 melta, serg term hon and pow fist. (250 points-ish)

10x marines, bolters, true grit and infiltrate. Frags, 1 melta, serg term hon and pow fist. (250 points-ish)

5x dev marines, infiltrate, 4 missile launchers. (170 points-ish)

1x L/speeder tornado (80 points)

5x assault marines, meltabombs, serg term hon and pow fist (150 points-ish)

Roughly 1000 points then, so what do you think?

I would suggest giving the Master a jump pack instead of Terminator armor and a bolt pistol, should drop his cost by about 4pts total, send him with the Assault Squad to add a little more punch to them and he isn't that expencive.

Otherwise it looks like an almost exact copy of my own Blood Ravens force at 1000pts only I usually drop the devs or the Land Speeder, or both and throw in a high powered Librarian. I mean Blood Ravens are just fluffy to have a Librarian but its not required. Looks good mate!

Yeah i'm still contemplating the librarian, the only thing that made me sway the way of the captain was that if i don't take one, i tend to fail every leadership test i have to make lol. (With my ultramarines that is) The reason i opted for the dedicated tank busting squad as oppose to fire support squads or cc tank busters is that being able to deploy them last is just a god send! I used to take heavies in normal tac squads but i've found the temptation to stop and shoot at armour with them is too much. It slows your squad down and you lose so many shots doing so.

I may tweak it slightly to see if i can get a librarian in there, or up the list to 1500 points. If i did that i'd probably get the librarian, a dread, some scouts and maybe up the assault squad to ten.

Cheers for your input anyway, do you do well with your blood ravens army?
