Default 1000pt Raven Guard list

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to SMs, so I wanted to get some opinions on my first list. It's not big enough to use Shrike yet (though it wouldn't be too hard to expand ) , but I'm trying to make a force with some good fluff, and may later add an allied Inquisitor for exra flavor. Here goes:

HQ:
Reclusiarch
Artificer Armor, Jump pack, bolt pistol, purity seals, auspex
133

Elite:
Venerable Dreadnaught
TL lascannon, dread CC weapon w/ storm bolter
Extra armor, Smoke
153pts

Troops:
5 Scouts
3 Sniper rifles, one missile launcher, 2 bolters
Sarge w/ term honors, Auspex
115pts

8 Tactical marines
1 marine w/ flamer, Sarge with Bolt pistol and CC weapon
126pts

6 Tactical marines
1 marine w/ Missile launcher, 1 w/ plasma gun
110pts


Fast Attack:
8 Assault Marines
1 flamer, Sarge w/ Term Honors, Power fist, Furious Charge
230

HS:
Predator Destructor
Extra armor, Smoke, 2 side lascannons
133

Total: 1000pts

looks...alright, although somewhat slow (given that raven guard are meant to be a jump-packing kinda list). tho admittedly, you'd have some trouble fitting in some speed at this point.

there's only two things i can really think to comment on right now, number one: lose the hunter killer on the predator and get the dread smoke and extra armour (and you might as well get extra armour for the pred while you're at it...or an extra special weapon for the ML squad). and next, why does the sergeant have both a fist and a lightning claw?? or is that only one of the 2?? if its only one, just leave it as the fist, its a much better killing device

The sarge only has one, I'm just not sure which is better, as they don't have standard equipment in the SM Codex. Which is weird.

I'll probably take your advice on the HK and give the dread some upgrades... Admittedly, I kind of forgot about those. : P

As for speed, I was considering a Land Speeder or two, but I thought a Pred would be better for stability. I'll probably throw them in when I move up to 1500, along with some Devs and Shrike's wing.

The list has been edited now. My goal tactically here is to take the fight to the enemy, but still keep a strong firebase as backup. The Scouts are intended to Infiltrate into sniper range and use their Auspex to monitor for other infiltrating units and hopefully wound/pin them before the start of the game, thus keeping the enemy from coming too close before I can do something about it. The Chaplain joins the assault squad and, should they need to fall back, can use the purity seals to control the distance moved.
The Pred and Dread are main anti-tank support, and along with the tac marines, are quite prepared for any counterattacks the enemy can muster.
