Default My First 1500 Point Army... need help and suggestions.

I have been toying around with ideas of what I want in a 1500 point army. This is my current list. It is currently around 1360 points, so it leaves some room for ideas and adding more troops or even another squad or vehicle. I want to see what people think of it so far.


Librarian in Terminator Armor = 140 Points

Chaplain w/ Jet Pack - Artificer Armour, Terminator Honours = 140 Points

Chaplain will be leading Assault Squad.


Terminator Squad = 245 Points

2 Terminators w/ Storm Bolters and Power Fists
1 Terminator w/ Cyclone Missile Launcher and Power Fist
1 Terminator w/ Assault Cannon and Power Fist
1 Terminator w/ Storm Bolter and Power Weapon


Tactile Squad 1 = 170 Points

8 Marines w/ Boltguns
1 Marine w/ Meltagun
1 Marine w/ Missile Launcher

Tactile Squad 2 = 175 Points

8 Marines w/ Boltguns
1 Marine w/ Meltagun
1 Marine w/ Lascannon

Scout Squad = 90 Points

4 Scouts w/ Sniper Rifles
1 Scout w/ Heavy Bolter


Assault Squad = 160 Points

6 Marines w/ Bolt Pistol and Close Combat Weapon
1 Marine w/ Flamer

Assault Squad Led by Chaplain

Land Speeder Squadron = 240 Points

1 Land Speeder Tornado w/ Multi-Melta and Heavy Flamer
1 Land Speeder Tornado w/ Heavy Bolter and Assault Cannon
1 Land Speeder Typhoon w/ Multi-Melta and Typhoon Missile Launchers

I am not sure what else I should add. I think I have given my forces good heavy weapons, but I think I may still need to add a tank or a dedicated heavy support. What do you guys think? Or should I add a few more troops and save some points for further upgrades? I would prefer to stay away from tanks, as I want a really fast looking army, but I also need an army that will not get torn away by tanks... so I might need to sacrifice that look with some slower looking artillery.

Any tips on how to spend my extra 140 Points, or what to change would be appreciated.
