Default 1850 Point Competitive Raven Guard List

This is a list that I am making for my cousin. I think that it has a lot of potential and should be fun to play. Here is the list:

HQ:

Shadow Captain Kayvaan Shrike (goes with assault squad)
= 195

Space Marine Chaplain, jump pack (goes with assault squad)
= 115

Elite:

Inquisitor, emperor's tarot, terminator armor, thunder hammer, storm shield (goes with terminator squad)
= 100

Callidus Assassin
= 120

5x Assault Terminators, 5x thunder hammers, 5x storm shields
= 200

Troops:

10x Scouts, 10x combat blade, power weapon, melta bombs, teleport homer
= 175

10x Scouts, 10x combat blade, power weapon, melta bombs, teleport homer
= 175

10x Scouts, 10x combat blade, power weapon, melta bombs
= 160

10x Scouts, 10x combat blade, power weapon, melta bombs
= 160

Fast Attack:

10x Assault Marines, thunder hammer, storm shield
= 230

10x Assault Marines, thunder hammer, storm shield
= 230

Total: 1850

This list is designed to give you an advantage on going first and then getting as many fist turn charges as possable. The list allows for the entire army to be in combat turn 1 with the exeption of the terminators who can make a turn two charge. The terminators are there to take care of anti tank. Basically this list uses close combat as cover. (Cant be shot at in close combat.) Teleport homers are there for Dawn of War. Let me know what you think.

This list would work against a static shooting army but not against anything mechanized or combat army. Orks would laugh at your scouts and then smother you with 2-3 as many bodies. A squad of Berserkers or other combat specialists would trash your assault squads. Even basic marines can hold against the scouts.

A mechanized list would just drive away because you can't kill tanks except in combat.

But the list is fast enough to catch the tanks. Also orks loose to this because you double up scout squads and then you get 60 attacks at the orks before they get to go. Then their attacks back dont matter as much. 20 scouts on the charge kill aproximately 13 boyz. Those boyz only kill aproximately 4 scouts. The orks then have to take 9 armor saves and loose more guys. I fail to see how this is bad. Also the only thing it doesnt really work against is genestealers, but lets face it, no marine can fight genestealers. Also the scouts kill aproximately 5 marines and the marines only kill aproximately 2 scouts. Then the marines take saves and it continues. The math supports the scouts. Also that is why there are power weapons in every squad. (For MEQs)
