Default Which Blood Angel List to take?

OK I have a 1500pt Tourney this weekend and I am thinking about taking one of two list. To keep it simple I am not worried about over all points of unit a vs unit b. I am just wondering about over all effectiveness of either list.

List A
HQ LeMartes

Troop: 10 Man Assault Squad w/ Power Weapon 2 Plasma Pistols

Troop: 10 Man Assault Squad w/ Power Weapon 2 Plasma Pistols

Troop: 10 Man Assault Squad w/ Power Fist

Elite: 6 Man Death Company w/JP

Fast: Landspeeder w/Heavy Bolter, Assault Cannon, Typhoon Missile Launcher

Heavy: Pred w/Twin Linked Lascannon W/ Heavy Bolter Sponson

Heavy: Pred w/Autocannon W/ Lascannon sponson Storm Bolter

List B
HQ: LeMartes

Troops: Troop: 10 Man Assault Squad w/ Power Weapon 2 Plasma Pistols

Troop: 10 Man Assault Squad w/ Power Weapon 2 Plasma Pistols

Elite: 5 Man Death Company w/JP

Fast: Attack Bike w/Multimelta

Fast: Attack Bike w/Multimelta

Fast: Attack Bike w/Multimelta

Heavy: Vindicator

Heavy: Vindicator

Heavy: Vindicator


Those are my two list. I have a few models that can be swapped around, and a few extra models not used. Also because of squad markings the 10 Man squads need to stay as is as far as weapons. I can not place the fist in the squad with the P. Pistols

Not used Models:
Landraider (Normal)
Landspeeder w/Heavy Flamer Multimelta
Baal Pred x2
5 man Terminator Squad Assault Cannon chainfist.

I have played a few games with both, against different opponents and have had mixed results with both armies.

Any help would be great.

Thanks
David

Why use Lemartes? Why have 3 units of assault for troops? Make on Elites to get that additional attack, its worth it. Where are the Baal Predators? 3 vindicators throws off the Blood Angels feel.

1)LeMartes is only 5 more points than a Chaplin with JP. He has better stats and causes your opponents to have a -1 leadership if with in 6"

2)Why troops over elites? Points. I don't remember the exact numbers but in the first list I was saving around 100 points depending on how I had everyone set up.

3) The Baal Preds are in the case. I wanted something that could deal with heavy armour. The Baal is a great tank but its main purpose is killing squads. Against Heavy Armour it is a crap shoot. I wanted a better chance to kill tanks. With the number of fast moving close combat squad I figure killing squads would not be a problem.

4) The 3 Vindicator list is because I wanted to try something different. I am playing in a tournament in an area that the players don't see much varity in army list. So I figure that anything different will cause them to be outside of their comfont zone, giving me the edge.
