Azrael goes in one of the Tactical Squads, the Command Squad stays as far back as it can whilst still providing it's buff (probably shielded by the Dreads). Azrael is 215pts for Rites of Battle, Scoring on the Wings, 3D6 Leadership/FnP, giving one Tactical Squad a 4++ and tanking hits. Hopefully he'll never have to swing the Sword - he's there to sit at the front of the squad and take hits on his 2+, not deal damage. Like the Librarian, he's a force multiplier.
The Tacticals do have to stay close to the Command Squad, but with 12" deployment + 6" movement, you can reach pretty damn far with 24" range guns, even without movement, and as the enemy has to come towards you to get THEIR guns in range (since the Quad-Gun and Mortis have demeched them and the Terminators). Fastest combat armies are probably Dark Eldar and Blood Angels; Dark Eldar will fall over to Salvo 4 Bolters with only the Talos, Ravager and Dias of Destruction having any real chance of surviving, and combat units will often be charging through cover with insane Overwatch, so I reckon I'm pretty safe there. Blood Angels don't have the model count to survive the Salvo 4, and I can always speed bump with Terminators.
While the Bolter Banner denies you mobility, I've got 2 Ravenwing units (which though small, are hugely mobile), and the Terminators are my rapid response unit (they're fairly mobile as they don't lose anything from movement, and Deep Strike), and that much firepower compensates for the small decrease in movement.
When you ask if I can make the points back, I think I can probably do that in area denial alone. Like Vindicators and OnG Fanatics, nobody really wants to get too close to a setup like this, which allows me to dictate movement, hopefully away from objectives (give a choice - take the objective and eat 32 bolter shots per turn per Tactical squad, sometimes Twin Linked, or stay away and be forced into trying to get the objectives in the last few turns).
The only list I was really scared of when I wrote this was Screamons, but then I remembered they don't exist any more :D
