Default 1500 BA up for review

Hey guys I've been trying to make a blood angels army and have for the past few months been having a hard time coming up with a suitable list to my liking. after several trial and error attempts I think I have came up with a list I like and was wondering what you guys thought so be as ruthless as possible on how you think this will work.

Reclusiarch- jumppack=155

2 sanguinary priest- 2 power weapons, 1 jumppack=155

10 assault marines- 2 melta guns, power weapon=225

5 assault marines - flamer, power weapon=120
razorback- TL-lascannon=55

5 assault marines - flamer, power weapon=120
razorback- TL-lascannon=55

5 assault marines - melta gun, power weapon=125
razorback- TL-lascannon=55

baal pred- AC,HB=145

baal pred- AC,HB=145

vindicator=145

Total=1500

Its looking ok.. I'm not a BA player, but i would suggest getting some more men. Your hanging really low on numbers there, your going to get out gunned and out manned in every game.

When I made my 1500 BA list I went all troops, because with only 3 pieces of armor on the field they are going to get lit up with heavy weapons pretty quick. I always go 10 strong with assault squads as well, when they are in a 5 strong squad they seem to die way too quickly.

Edit: Dis regard didn't see the razorbacks. Still I would go with 10 man squads and put them in rhinos instead.

If I was you I'd ditch the Vindicator and the Razorbacks and just try to amass a huge swarm of assault marines. Give each squad a power fist and two meltaguns (take care of armour). Get a third priest. Keep the Predators, they'll soften up huge swarms of boyz and gaunts so you can hit hard with all the furious charge attacks. Any smaller units will just be overwhelmed by the sheer number of strength 5, initiative 5 attacks.

overall I think the list is great, but I do share the concern of low model count which will be my disadvantage with the list. Overall I think I can handle most armies as long as I don't get hard early on in the game I should win. I have a 1750 list I'm working on that adds another 10 assault squad with power fist and 2 melta guns in a rhino which helps out with my low model count. I'm still working on a 1850 and a 2000pt list where I may add one more priest and another vindicator/flamestorm baal into the mix or possible assault terminators or another jumppack assault squad.
