Well i agree with the CSM and the Orks, however IG are as of yet unproven at GT (the main UK 1500 tourney). Yes they have some amazing things on paper but thats on paper! I was one of the first people to say that the new super unit (battle psykers) weren't all that good and now there is a big dabate on another forum pretty much backing up what i said.
As for Dark Angels, IMO their best point value is 2000. I feel they get the most out of the Dualwing at that level without other armies getting too much of a boost.
Eldar are really hard at 1500. Whether it is dual biker councils or skimmer spam. They are deffo one of the best.... Just look at the GT results from March.
Tyranids are under rated at 1500. I still think a choir army is amazing!
IMO the armies that would get the biggest boost (for different reasons) moving from 1500 to 1750 is the new guard (because 250 points of extra tank/feet is good) and Necrons (coz it would allow the Necron player to look at things other than "Necrons").
Then again this is just my opinion and i'm just another faceless person on a computermebob!
