Default Starting and expanding Space Marines

Hey everyone.

I decided to start Space Marines. Was able to get good deal on Strike Force Ultra and Knight Warden. Picked up Dark Imperium to get rulebook and Primaris marines. Already had Stormraven laying around.

My thoughts on expansion:

Fliers: Got two Stormravens covered, so was thinking of picking picking up two Stormtalons. Not sure if I need Stormhawks if I want to run Whirlwind.

Tanks/Transports: Have one Landraider Crusader/Redeemer (Is another one needed?). Thinking of picking up two Predators, two Razorbacks and one Whirlwind (Would Stormhawk be better than Whirlwind?). Was thinking to get two drop pods.

Heavy: Ten Devastators.

Elites: Have one Ven. Dread. Got two sets of twin autocannons coming from FW. Which second dread to pick up? Ten Sternguard Vets. Conversions for Apothecaries.

Fast: Three Attack Bike squads. Two Attack Bikes. Land Speeder. Ten Assault Marines.

Troops: Three tactical squads and ten sniper scouts.

HQ: Primarch box. Primaris Librarian and Captain. Space Marine Heroes. Convert different versions of Chaplain. Honour Guard. Convert termie Librarian w/shield.

Looking for feedback. Thanks.

You seem to have all bases covered. The only thing I think you're lacking is maybe a second devastator squad. I always like one for either side of the board.

I was thinking that role can be covered by hellblasters.

I usually run troo heavy so id say a few more tactical squads. but thats just my opinion. list seems fine. you limiting it because of cost? if not then id say get both storm hawk and whirlwind if you can swing it.
