At merely one-thousand points that is a damned scary list, but I fear it's very one-dimensional. A canny opponent who manages to make it into assault will likely systematically destroy your units. I'm not really sure what there is to say, though. At such a low points level it's difficult for an enemy to bring enough anti-tank to bear to deal with 7 different vehicles rampaging about.

I've come to the conclusion that vehicles in BA are kinda pathetic too.
A Landspeeder costs more then an attack bike and can't benefit from Feel No Pain. So 1 S7 shot is going to put it down, not only will an attack bike survive 1 S7 shot it can also get a chance to ignore it entirely with FnP so even if your opponent rolls well and you roll crappy you just say "Meh, it still has a wound."

I'm definately not sold on the dreads with autocannons. There good for light vehicle popping but they only provide 12 shots for about 400 points. 3 attack bikes armed with heavy bolters will give you 9 shots at 36 inches, 12 shots at 24 inches, and 15 shots at 12 inches. If you take a biker priest onto them you can add 1 shot at 24 and 2 shots at 12 as well as Furious Charge and FnP, all around 200ish points. So you can take 6 attack bikes and 2 priests for roughly the same price as those 3 dreads. I'm pretty sure that will provide alot more dakka power.
