Default 1700 Point Dark Angels - Tournament

There's a tourney coming up this weekend and I'm feeling like busting out the Ravenwing again. However this time they have some reinforcements since I've recently gotten a couple deathwing units ;D.

Basic strategy is pretty straightforward, advance with my scout moves, Deathwing Assault one termi unit, either deploy the other one or keep them in reserve to deep strike later. Keep the army moving and try to hit the enemy where it hurts.

So here's the list, let me know what you think.

Samael on Jetbike
205

5 Terminators, 2 w/ lightning claws, 2 w/ power fists and storm bolters, 1 w/assault cannon and power fist
245

5 Terminators, 2 w/ lightning claws, 2 w/ power fists and storm bolters, 1 w/assault cannon and power fist
245

6 Ravenwing w/ standard, apothecary, powerfist, plasma gun, plasma pistol, melta gun
Attack bike w/ multi melta
375

6 Ravenwing w/ powerfist, flamer, melta gun
Attack bike w/ multi melta
310

6 Ravenwing w/ power sword, 2 melta guns, plasma pistol
Attack bike w/ multi melta
320

Total Points: 1700

Just a Quick note. I know there's no landspeeders in this list. Normally I take three, but I dropped them to free up points for the terminators. I feel this is acceptable, but others might differ in opinion. If so let me know why!

I've never played against, or with an army with a mixed (close combat/shootie) termie squad. Have you tried it before? Does it work?

I haven't tried it before actually, I just finished putting together all the lightining claw dudes a few moments ago! My fingers are still covered in glue and my head still hurts... but I digress.

I think it will work well, overall I suffer a small fire power reduction, however it makes them quite potent in close combat.

The other option I could do would be one squad w/ 3 or 4 lightning claws and the assault cannon and give the other squad the storm bolters. I can deep strike the claw squad on turn one as per "Deathwing Assault" then the other squad can deep stike in and be a shooty menace. Meanwhile the first squad can start running up into combat from turn 2 onwards.

What'd you think of the rest of the list?

i like the list though the termies should have a chainfist on one of their guys the assault cannon is where i have mine. its a cheap upgrade that allows a real punch against armor. also perhaps a powerfist instead of the sword on the biker unit. I would agree on having one close combat terminator squad and one shooting squad. though are you sure you want the assault cannon in the close combat squad. maybe only in the shooting squad. is sammael in the bike or landspeeder?

Samael is on a Jetbike.

You suggested some upgrades, but I don't have the points for those, so I can't take them.

well by dropping the assault cannon in the assault terminator unit you should have enough points for the upgrades

I'd much rather have an assault cannon than chainfists. Thanks for the suggestions though.
