Looks cool, I just have a few personal thoughts. Defensive firepower has really not been where I've succeeded with Space Marines. With the melta heaviness I'd prefer to get up close and personal on my own terms. I would add a unit that allows you to exploit enemy weaknesses quickly - Maybe stick the dreadnoughts in drop pods? Just a thought. Overall I have to say good job.

Sorry to disagree, nitefuel...

If you're going to bother with a devastator squad, multi-meltas are great. Really, melta's the best way to kill vehicles right now, no ifs and or butts about it.

Marines are excellent at playing the midfield, and that seems to be where your army will excel. I'd say try the list out and see how you do.

Save for Chronus. I really dislike him, for some reason. Especially on a vindie... doesn't seem to be much point (difference between -4 and -5 for scatter isn't all that much).
