Default 2850 dream list, the Telsian Wasters

Ok, so my idea for this army is a completely footslogging army that is stranded on a Tau-invaded world. They were in the process of being founded when the Tau invaded, and as such they are the only Company of the Chapter. Their vehicle hangars were destroyed, and now all that remains are soldiers and 4 dreadnaughts. Paint Scheme will be brown and tan, with bleached bone in places to reflect the Nuclear Wasteland that they live in. Now, enough fluff, here's my list

Captain
+ Power Sword
+ Artificer Armour
+ Digital Weapons
+ Auxiliary Grenade Launcher
Total: 155pts
Command Squad
+ Company Standard
+ Company Champion
+ 3 Power Swords
+ 3 Plasma Pistols
Total: 275
Master of the Forge
+ Plasma Pistol
+ Digital Weapons
+ Power Sword
Total: 140
Tactical Squad
+ 5 Marines
+ Lascannon
+ Meltagun
+ Combi-Melta
Total: 195
Tactical Squad
+ 5 Marines
+ Flamer
+ Power Sword
+ Teleport Homer
Total: 200
Tactical Squad
+ 5 Marines
+ Heavy Bolter
+ Storm Bolter
Total: 180
Tactical Squad
+ 5 Marines
Total: 170
Scout Squad
+ 5 Scouts
+ 10 Sniper Rifles
+ 10 Camo Cloaks
Total: 170
Scout Squad
+ 5 Scouts
+ 10 Shotguns
Total: 140
Terminator Assault Squad
+ 5 Terminators
Total: 400
Dreadnaught
+ TL Auto Cannon
+ TL Auto Cannon
Total: 125
Dreadnaught
+ Assault Cannon
+ Missile Launcher
Total: 125
Dreadnaught
+ TL Lascannon
+ Missile Launcher
Total: 145
Dreadnaught
+ Heavy Flamer
+ TL Heavy Flamer
+ Extra Armour
Total: 130
Devastator Squad
+ 5 Marines
+ 2 Lascannons
+ 2 Plasma Cannons
+ Storm Bolter
Total: 300
Grand Total: 2850
I'm thinking to drop it to 2500 i could drop the Devastators, and maybe the Plasma Pistols from the Command Squad? Anyway, what do you guys think?

Hey man I don't mean to be a kill-joy as such but drednaughts are used to hold the near dead heroes of a chapter so they can live on and fight.

So I guess my point it it just seems a bit odd that a newly founded chapter would already have 4 of them...

but if you have a reason for them i shall withdraw this comment as you would be correct and i wrong.

Right, i thought of that, but my reasoning was that their founding chapter (Imperial Fists i'm thinking) were manning the facility while the Wasters were being implanted, but a lot of them died during the invasion, and thus some were placed into Dreadnaughts

thats a cool idea i like that.

gives you more room to fashion your army as well so your not too stuck on a few certain troop types.
