Its in the FAQ that you can take a razorback as a rolling gun platform and you'.
I agree about the assault squad
Storm Bolters are pretty much useless, buy Razorbacks and you get HB
I would personally, upgrade the captain to a Chapter Master for the orbital strike since you didn't take a command squad or Give him a Lightning claw or Thunderhammer to let him hit hard or use his high I, it basically guarantees a wound vs MEQs
I would ditch the dread and buy 5 more men for the Devis and upgrade them to Lascannons. You get more lascannon shots and since this seems to be a mainly antitank dread thats the point. Its also always better to have 2 shots than TL, chances of a single hit are about the same, but their is the possibility for TWO HITS. Combat Squads also lets you engage seperate tanks and if you put them at the extreme edges of your side of the table, you can all but guarantee that you will be hitting Side armour, the extra dudes also provide great ablative shielding. Missile Launchers in devi squads really arent worth it when the template they shoot is the same as a bolter and the solid shot is weaker than the lascannon option.
I would also ditch the transport as the weapons you are looking at have enough range to effectively command the board and the pts/transport could be of better use somewhere else. Just be careful when you place them that they wont wind up becoming useless later in the battle.
I would also ditch the scouts altogether cause w telion they are costing a lot more than they are worth, or give em sniper rifles and a teleport homer so they can fulfill the roll of taking some wounds off of MCs and getting that Termi Squad safely on the board.
I would replace the heavy flamer w an assault cannon, rending makes up for the cover save thing and since you will probably be DSing in at least 12" from the enemy so that you arent in danger, it will get a ton more shots off. Plus it gives the squad and effective weapon against light vehicles, med infantry, and MCs. It'll also instant kill/AP a bunch of annoying units people use against terminators (IG Command squad w power fister and plasma, Eldar Howling Banshees/Embedded Psyker, CC Inquisitor/Deathcultists, etc). Personally I would get the pts for this from the Razorback.
Just my thoughts.
All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
