The list seems really light for 2000 points. Honestly, I'd expect a little bit more meat or a little more mech in it.

You only have two meltaguns in your entire army. These are your only answers for AV14 and, quite frankly, that's not enough (meltabombs don't really count... once you're that close, you'd better be assaulting whatever's inside the raider; leman russes don't care). If you're bothering to pod in a furioso, you might as well give it death company. Once you've done that, you want it to have extra armour so it can get into melee. At that point, it's so many points you don't want to lose it to a lucky shot, so you might as well give it venerable! For me, furiosos are an all or nothing thing: give em everything and let em mulch things, or keep them cheap and take multiples (death company being the only mandatory upgrade, imo). If you're podding dreads, especially at 2k, I'd recommend 2 (if not 3; holy trifecta!).

Your terminator squad is points wasted, imo. Blood angels don't do termies very well, to be honest. Either give em lightning claws and throw em in a crusader with corbulo and pretend to be black templar, or skip them entirely for what blood angels do well (jump packs!). You can drop the squad and get a second furioso in a pod with enough points left over for some much needed upgrades. Another option is to take a few multi-melta attack bikes (2 or 3 squads of 2 are a very real anti-tank threat).

Personally, I don't like devastators. I get why people like them and why you're using them, so it's up to you.

Really, my biggest concern with this list is a lack of anti-AV14 ability. Oh, and your assault squads need fists. That's pretty much mandatory for any unit that's planning on reaching assault.

grats on your sweet army list, but I know that I can just drop a furioso, swap out my missile launchers from my devastator squad for heavy bolters or multi meltas and take away a vehicle's extra armor and i'm at 1750.

however, I know that with fielding mech, your big hitters (my furioso twins) are going to be the big fire magnet, so I wanted to have 2 just incase one gets popped or mishaps on the deep strike.

my local geek shop has players that normally field 2k point armies, most of them being light and fast mobile armies. I originally had my assault squad with meltabombs because too many times I've been in CC with a Dreadnought and not been able to do anything but be a speedbump.

I don't know if this is laced with sarcasm but, to clarify, I was merely commenting upon the fact that I have 20 Terminators whereas you only have 20 Marines. That is not a good thing. Plus, you can only hold two objectives with this list and its really hard to win when that's the case.

Assault squads can still combat squad. He can hold 4 objectives and contest many. 5 naked assault marines in cover will hold an objective fine so long as the rest of the army is doing what it's supposed to do. I do like the newer list better, it'll probably be able to do a fair bit more. I suggest trying it out (or even the original as well) in a few games and seeing what you like/don't like.

I do not think the number of death company is right. As it stands he should only have 4 deathcompany. 2 from the assualt squads one from the devastor squad and one from the honor guard. you lost the 5th one when you got rid of the terminators. So one death company needs to be dropped.
