Default 1,500pt list, need some advice

So basically, I'll be taking this 1500pt army to the local game shop this following week, and wanted to get some feedback so I can make some last minute tweeks! Thanks.

Doctrines: Take the Fight to Them, No Mercy, no Respite, Eye to Eye

HQ

Reclusiarch
8 Space Marines w/ CCW, Bolt Pistol, Furious Assault, 2w/ meltaguns
1 Sergeant w/ Powerfist, bolt pistol, furious Assault, Terminator Honors
307pts

Elites

Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, CCW
Drop pod
135pts

Troops

9 Space Marines w/ CCW, Bolt Pistol, Furious Assault, 1w/ Flamer
1 Sergeant w/ Powerfist, bolt pistol, furious Assault, Terminator Honors
226pts

5 Space Marines w/ bolters, 1w/ plasma gun, Lascannon
1 Sergeant
1 Razorback w/ TL lascannons, smoke launchers
203pts

Heavy Support

Whirlwind w/ smoke launchers 90pts

Land Raider Crusader w/ extra armor, smoke launchers 273pts

Land Raider w/ extra armor, smoke launchers 263pts


So basically, my big concern is the Dreadnought... It's either that, or a 6 man plasma rifle/lascannon squad and upgrading the chaplain to a Master of Sanctity. I kind of like having the deepstriking unit, but I'm concerned about the dreadnought being isolated from the rest of the army.

Your right, the dreadnought does feel out of place. Have you thought of scrapping one of the land raiders and using terminators instead. Because they are eating a lot of your points.

I wouldn't pod in the dreadnought, instead why not try giving him twin-linked lascannon and missile launcher? He can hang back and help provide more long range firepower?

Also you the Land Raider crusader already has extra armour, you've paid for it again! Use those five points to give the dread extra armour as well.

I understand the Land Raiders are a big point sink, but I put them in there simply because I like them. ;D

Thanks for the Land Raider catch! I think I'll try the TL Lascannon, missile launcerdread, I'll just have to rearrange a few things. ;D
