Are you sure you want to go with Deathwing for the command squad? Unless you have an idea of what to do with them, you're just pouring points down the drain. With no weapons outside of the base ones they aren't going to impact the game in any significant way, and standard marines do that just as well as termies. As they are, they're essentially a mobile banner, and you can do that much more cheaply than you currently are.
If you just intend for them to carry the banner around and maybe keep the Librarian from taking hits, I'd make them standard marines and trade the LR for a rhino.

I'd also add some more anti-tank. Right now your only chance of taking on AV14 is a single melta gun, one sergeant's melta bombs, and some lucky Asscan rends. Maybe ditch the scout squad and, if you rework the command squad, spend the points on some devs?

Edit: Forgot that Krak missiles are Str 8, but you're still needing 6's to glance, so three per turn with this list not only utterly fails to effectively combat AV14 but also ties up three squads that could be shooting something else.
