Shrike isn't part of C:BA. Plus, Shrike won't give your guys fleet, since they don't have a combat tactics rule to exchange for fleet. BA Scouts are elites, not troops. Some people would allow wargear changes to match C:SM, but I'd draw the line at this.

Seems to me that there isnt much assault, you're running 16 assault guys, then everything else is stand and shoot. Blood Angels are geared more towards getting in your opponents face and assaulting the living hell outta them, i'd drop the tacticals and scouts and run more assault marines. and if you havent already, make the land raider a crusader. I'd also throw in one or 2 thunder hammers in the termie squad for their 4+ invulnerable save and the doubled strength to take out monsterous creatures.

Scouts with combat blades are actually not bad in my experience, but they either have to hug cover to make it to enemy lines (not always an option, makes for slow movement), or outflank (which could keep them out of battle for too long and they could come in on the wrong side). I've tried running a primarily stand and shoot list with the BA. They might work in a few situations, but they generally struggle. Drop the Devs, Scouts, and at least one Tactical Squad for more assaulters. You could keep one tactical squad as objective squatters, but with the expense of the termies you're better off keeping your assault squads alive and running them back to your objective at the end of the game, or just tabling your opponents outright. Watch out for deep striking troops, because they can snatch your objective when you aren't looking and be a royal pain to dislodge.

I'd still swap one of the tactical squads for more assault marines. And corbulo isnt that great, cuz since you have jump packs on your death company, you cant run him with them. and he really wont be of use running them with the terminators cuz they already get a 2+ save and a 5+ invul, plus they're in a land raider. So he doesnt serve much of a purpose, just like tycho

Despite their power, you don't really need a second HQ with this list. Drop Corbulo and a tactical squad and get more assault marines! If you're so desperate to use those Rhinos, assault marines can lose their jump packs and take them for free, which I've found effective (when used against me :-\), but I prefer jump packs.

Also, you can edit your new list into the first post. If you want to retain the old list for reference, mark out the changes and put the new stuff in a different color.
