Default 1500 Mech Space Marines For Tournament

There is a 1500 point mini-tournament at my new local gaming store, so I am going to bring this list for my first game there. The (probably half-baked) concept is that the Librarian and Terminators storm forward in the Land Raider with Razorbacks and Rhino in choo-choo train formation. The Land Speeders would deep strike or zoom around to take out heavy armour or open up transports while at least 2 combat squads with missile launchers hang back to hold my deployment zone objective. 1500 points is an unusual point level for me, so comments and criticism are welcome.

100 Librarian with Null Zone and Avenger

460 5 Assault Terminators w/ storm shields and thunder hammers
Land Raider Crusader w/ multi-melta (dedicated transport)

210 10 Tactical marines with flamer and missile launcher
Razorback (dedicated transport)

210 10 Tactical marines with flamer and missile launcher
Razorback (dedicated transport)

210 10 Tactical marines with meltagun and missile launcher
Rhino (dedicated transport)

70 Land Speeder with multi-melta and heavy flamer

No comments? I'm sure someone has an insight.

Ah, well I think its a really good list, very well rounded. And the game plan you've got is pretty thorough and seems simple and straight forward enough.
I'm trying to find a criticism, but....
Let us all know how the list goes.

I would probably take attack bike's instead of land speeders, its just a personal preference but I find that speeders don't last as long as bikes. With the amount of armour you have it would be easy to conceal your attack bikes for a turn until you were close enough to make use of them. The other thing is that I think that force dome is wasted on your librarian as everyone in the unit except the librarian already has an inv save. If your taking it specifically to give the librarian an inv save why don't you give him terminator armour and a storm shield as it leaves you free to use another power and it isn't unreliable. If you did replace the speeders with bikes, the points you save would allow you to pay for the librarians upgrade!

Just my thoughts!

Thanks for the replies. I will probably try out MM attack bikes in Vassal. Re Sardis: my librarian has Null Zone, not Force Dome, though I am working on a Librarian model with a storm shield to give me a more survivable HQ.

Doah, for some reason I always seem to get those two mixed up! :
