Default 2000pts Blood Angels - need anti horde help....

Right so this is my list.

2000 Points Blood Angels Successors

HQ

Captain(Jump pack and Lightning Claws)
150pts

Honour Guard(Sanguinary Priest,2 marines w/Power Swords, Jump Packs) 200pts

Total Pts From HQ 350pts

Elites

Veteran Assault Squad(10 men, 3 w/ Power Weapons, Sergeant w/ meltabombs) 325pts

Veteran Assault Squad(10 men, 3 w/ Power Weapons, Sergeant w/ meltabombs) 325pts

6 Death Company Marines(Jump Packs) 30pts

Total Pts from Elites 680pts

Troops

Tactical Squad(10 men, one w/ Lascannon) 210pts

Tactical Squad(10 men, one w/ Lascannon) 210pts

Total Points from troops 420pts

Fast Attack

Attack Bike Squadron(3 bikes, all w/ Heavy Bolters) 150pts

Land Speeder Squadron(2 Land Speeders, both w/ multi-meltas) 130pts

Total pts from Fast Attack 280pts

Heavy Support

Devastator Squad(10 men,4 missile launchers) 270pts

Total pts from Heavy Support 270pts

Total pts (350+680+420+280+270)

2000pts

But after some consideration, I realised that I had no significant anti horde(lack of heavy bolters).
So I'm thinking to either have the bikes or the LandSpeeders have Heavy Bolters. But which one?

Overall comments would be appreciated.

Good start. I'll give you some of my feedback.

For starters that honour guard squad should have a pair of plasma guns instead of the power weapons.

The veteran assault squads will be better off with 2 powerfists each, instead of 3 power weapons and one meltabomb.

Also You don't really need to have 2 veteran assault squads.

Otherwise I don't think you're to bad on anti horde. 2 Veteran assault squads are pretty good anti horde in an of themselves, and the 3 attack bikes can certainly put out some good damage. If you really need more anti horde what you could do is drop a tactical squad, reduce on veteran squad to an assault squad. Use the points freed up to get some whirlwinds, or a heavy bolter dev team.

I know that the Veteran Assault Squads should take down gaunts with minimal losses but I've played Orks a lot recently and I feel that, point for point, they're far superior too anything I can throw at them in melee.

That's why I think that Heavy Bolter LandSpeeders would be good since they're not an incredible threat so they may not be targeted that much.

What about Baal predators? A very flexable tank that's not too expensive and is ideal for putting out anti horde firepower!

I've used a Predator as a Baal Predator and it never seems to do anything. I'll give it a lash next time but as of now I'm not convinced of its worth.

I recommend taking the las cannons out the the tactical squads and fielding heavy bolters instead. Much more effective for hoard bashing, and it complements the marines bolt guns very well.

And last I remember Death Company is free and is randomly selected from each unit. (This might have changed with the new codex)

Yes this did in fact change.

I suggest the Baal Pred. I normally run two in my list. Also make the bikes and the speeders Heavy bolters if you want anti-horde. You could also add Assault cannons to the speeders for more anti-horde. I like the suggestion of dropping the Lascannons and replacing them with heavy bolters.
