Default What to do with this?

I just made a trade for the following models and I have not really looked hard at the new marine codex at all ... It is the Pink Floyds ...

http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b1.../pink%20floyd/

HQ
1 Captain with Combi-Melta
1 Captain with Combi-Plasma
1 Librarian with Helmet bearer (Familiar)
1 Chaplain in Terminator Armour
1 Caplainarian ? with Bolt pistol & Power weapon
1 Standard Bearer with (Floyd) Banner
1 Apothecary
1 Champion
4 Veterans

Elite
1 Plastic Dreadnought with all weapons
7 Terminators with Lightning Claws
3 Terminators with Thunder Hammers

Troops
1 Rhino
1 Metal Scout with Missile Launcher
4 Metal Scouts with Sniper Rifles
5 Plastic Scouts with Sniper Rifles
35 Space Marines with Bolters
2 Space Marines with Melta guns
4 Space Marines with Plasma guns
heavy weapons:
8 Space Marines with Missile Launchers
8 Space Marines with Heavy Bolters
6 Space Marines with Plasma Cannons
4 Space Marines with Lascannons

Fast
1 Command Speeder (Master of Ravenwing model) with TL Assault Cannon & TL Heavy Bolters
2 Land Speeders with Assault Cannon & Heavy Bolter
1 Jump Pack Sergeant with Power Fist
2 Jump Pack Marines with Plasma pistols
7 Jump Pack Marines with Bolt pistols & CCWs

Heavy
2 Vindicators

So what would be the most effective list at 1000, 1250, 1500 ...
Over 100 models and no PFs ... A lot of melta plasma though and I guess I could use any marine as a vet sarge if I wanted to but those combi-captains wold work unless I want them i9n a command squad. Also only one rhino! This is a true bolter trap footslogging army. Not even an LR for the termies! Go figure ... he must have DSed them.

Now I will need to use the standard bearer in every list! That is my only rule. And I'm not painting up any new models!

Go to it ... I know we have some SM experts here.

I'm this far so far

I'm this far with the 1000 point list ... not sure how to fill out the HQ

HQ -

10x tactical squad plasma gun, heavy bolter 180
10x tactical squad plasma gun, heavy bolter 180
10x tactical squad plasma gun, heavy bolter 180
5x scouts squad Sniper Rifles, missile launcher,camo cloaks 100

Vindicator smoke 115
Vindicator smoke 115

For 1250 I'm thinking to buff the HQ and a few landspeeders
For 1500 ?? Maybe a dev squad with quad plasma cannon? Termies?

Well, you've got Azrael, and you've got Sammael, so why not make a Dark Angels list?

For the record, the "Familiar" is not a familiar. He goes with Azrael (your "Captain" model with the Combi Bolter-Plasma).

I know its the Azrael model. But he is awfully expensive at 1000 - 1500 and nhe would need to be with the banner guy and apothecary and a few vets in a rhino (my only transport). I also have the Sammael model p[ainted pink! They are the Pink Angels

I can only imagine what you traded to get your hands on such an exquisite army. Your options are pretty limitless with what you have at your disposal.
