Your collection of models doesn't really facilitate this as you have some more expensive selections points wise in your collection. You could play:

Librarian - no upgrades

10 man Tactical squad w/ PG

10 man Tactical squad w/ PG

5 man Devastator squad w/ 3x ML

and come out right at 500 points, though the Libby doesn't have access to Divination and I am not too much of a fan of the other disciplines. You could always also shuffle the points in the tactical squads around a bit in terms of special weapons, or drop a ML in the Devs to increase the weaponry in your Tactical squads, but I have always found keeping heavy weapons where they benefit from Chapter Tactics to be best. Plus AP2 is handy to have in a pinch.

Thanks! I like the list. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks Mate.
