Default 1850: Hidden Flame

OK, so I want to do a Salamanders Chapter army for an 1850 Battle board that they have at the shop I play at. And though I want to play it Salamanders, I'm not playing it with the traits that they suggest (Somber: Cleans and Purify & Never dispair, Major: Eye to Eye). I instead decided to go with: Cleans and Purify & the trait that lets you infiltrate your Devistators and Tactical Squads; with the Major staying Eye to Eye, and I haven't decided on a Minor one yet... The purpose of the army is to only have the Tanks set up in "regular" deployment phase and the rest set up with Infiltrate or Deep Strike.

OK, so here's the list I have so far:

HQ
Commander: 1 Master
Master: Terminator armour, Storm bolter, Master-crafted Thunder hammer, Bionics, Adamantine mantle
PTS: 195
His purpose is to attach to the Terminator Squad that will be transported in the Land Raider Crusader.

Elite
Terminator Assault Squad: 5 Terminators
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield, Purity seals, Teleport homer
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
PTS: 210
They'll be transported in the Land Raider Crusader and take the Homer so they can get support from the other Terminator squad.

Terminator Assault Squad: 5 Terminators
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield and Purity seals
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
Terminator: Thunder hammer and Storm shield
PTS: 205
They'll Deep Strike to support the other Terminators if needed, or claim objectives.

Troops
Tactical Squad: 5 Marines
SGT: Terminator honours, Plasma pistol, Close combat weapon, Melta bombs, Infiltrate
Marine: Plasma rifle, Infiltrate
Marine: Meltagun, Infiltrate
Marine: Bolter, Infiltrate
Marine: Bolterand, Infiltrate
PTS: 150
They're to get close, as Salamanders like close up fire fights.

Scout Squad: 5 Scouts
Scout SGT: Terminator honours, Purity seals, Sniper rifle, Melta bombs
Scout: Sniper rifle
Scout: Sniper rifle
Scout: Sniper rifle
Scout: Heavy bolter
PTS: 113
They're to help pick off priority targets that the Tactical Marines can't get to right away and if the Devistators are busy against tanks.

Heavy
Devistators: 5 Marines
Devistator SGT: Terminator honours, Purity seals, Storm bolter, Auspex, Melta bombs, Infiltrate
Marine: Heavy bolter, Infiltrate
Marine: Missile launcher, Infiltrate
Marine: Multi-melta, Infiltrate
Marine: Plasma cannon (Or Lascannon), Infiltrate
PTS: 207
They're to get up close so they can take care of tanks quickly with the Multi-melta (Was thinking of putting them in a Rhino to do that). The Auspex is to take care of other infiltraters (As they will be the first infiltrators I set up).

Predator: 1 Tank
Destructor: Side-sponson Lascanonns, Pintle-mounted Storm bolter, Hunter killer missile, Smoke launchers, Extra armour, Machine spirit
PTS: 188
This is just to be a Heavy tank that's a nascence to hard to kill tanks and troops.

Land Raider: 1 Tank
Crusader: Pintle-mounted Storm bolter, Hunter killer missile, Smoke launchers
PTS: 293
This will be used to move the Terminator squad with the Master attached into combat quickly while keeping them protected.

Well, that's my list, only coming out to a grand total of 1561... I need some suggestions as to what to take to help fill up the points. I was thinking of taking another Scout squad (Set up the same way as the one I'm taking), an Assault squad and/or a Dreadnaught.

Any and all critiquing is welcome and needed. Space Marines aren't my main army, but I really like the Salamanders from when they had specific rules introduced in Armageddon. Thanks.

To fill up points I would just pick up some more tactical marines, to fill the line. Something like this:

8 Marines
plasma gun, missile launcher, marine with terminator honors and a power fist

or something like that...

My suggestions: Drop 1 termie squad and the predator for another infiltrating devastor squad. Maybe some more scouts too.
