Default 600 point blood angels/tau which is best?

Okay, I've got a 600pt doubles tourney Game coming up, and was wondering which of the below lists is the most competive, and any improvements to be done, after all, success is a measure of silver ware, is it not?

LIST 1- blood angels
x2 10man assault squads- x2 melta guns, power fist
Furioso dred- blood talons, heavy flamer, extra armour

LIST 2- blood angels
Storm raven- typhoon missile launcher, plasma cannons, hurrican bolters, extra armour
10man death company squad- x4 power swords, x2 power fists

LIST 3- tau
Riptide- ion accelarator, early warning overide
Hammerhead- railgun(subshots), smart missile system, disruption pod
12man firewarrior team
11man firewarrior team

Any of them any good?

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

I would think list 3 is the most versatile, allthough the second list is pretty powerful you lack in objective capturing units so unless you partner has some you could be left exposed in those type of games.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I'm going to vote for list three. That seems to me the one that's going to deal out the most damage and can really compliment anything your partner brings.

Always blood angels In all seriousness, if you drop a PF and that EA on the dread and get a dropping fragioso, that list will be damned scary and can deal with pretty much anything (list 1)

If you go down to the woods today, be wary

List 3 with a few mods

Instead of a cadre fireblade run an ethereal to get the best out of rapid fire for both fw and 12 bubble for re rolls moral check drop the them to nine man squads add 5 pathfinders but a BSF on railhead keep riptide as is for 597 pts
