Default 1850 Pt List for BA. Ideas on to reach 2000pts?

Expanded my 1500pt list to 1850. Any ideas on what to add for another 150-160 pts to reach 2000pts?

HQ

Mephiston 250pts

Elites

2 Sanguinary Priest w/ Jump packs 150pts

1 Chaplain w/ melta bombs 105pts

Troops

2 x 10 man assault squad w/ jump packs, 2 meltas, and a power fist 470pts

10 Death Company w/ 2 power weapons and 1 thunder hammer 260 pts

1 Land Raider Reedemer w/ extra armor and multi melta 265 pts

Heavy Support

2 Vindicator w/ siege shields and extra armor 340pts


Works out to 1840 pts. I'm trying to decide what to add to reach 2000pts. I could add a DC dread and stick a power fist in the DC squad or use a Reclusiarch instead of the regular Chaplain if I drop the melta bombs. I don't have enough points for another full Assault Squad although I could put in a five man squad in some kind of razorback to hold objectives.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

ive been told that mixing mech with jump is usually bad. granted the dc need a transport may not be worth it. ive done a hybred list kind of and it looks like this

hq-libby with plasma gun and jump pack-140
hq-honour guard - with jump packs 2x melta guns chapter banner-215(they go in stormraven)

els
2x sang priest with jumppacks-150

troops
10xassault marines 2x meltaguns 1x power fist-235
10xassault marines 2x meltaguns 1x power fist-235
10xassault marines 2x meltaguns 1x power fist-235
5xdc 2x powerfist-150(they go in stormraven)


fast attack
3x baal preds, TL AC and heavy bolter sides-435

2x stormravens with extra armor-430

if you can kick it up to 2500 you can add some dreads and put those in the ravens. you have a fast and hard hitting army. with the dreads youd use 2x furiosos with blood talons and meltaguns on them and put those in the ravens you can mess around with some points and troops to get a chaplin or lemartes in there somewhere. but over all thats what id do.

I'd probably go with a small Razorback Assault Squad. More scoring and another vehicle. Fits nicely with the available points too.

There's nothing inherently "bad" about hybrid mech/jump lists. The main thing you want to avoid is deploying half your army and letting it soak fire from the entirety of the enemy army while waiting on the DSers. Basically no different than how you would operate with Drop Pods or outflanking units.

Overall I think it's a good list. Lots of different threats and options. Low model count, but what's there is going to be hard to kill.

Land Raider?

in all seriousness; a razorback with an assault squad would be pretty good, with an assault cannon or something more awesome (Las-Plas combo) than what comes on the sprue. perhaps the DC can be beefed up a little and put into a rhino or something.

The main thing I see missing from your list is dedicated Anti-Armor. I would think about getting 3 MM attack bikes and using your vehicles to screen them untill they can get close enough to do some real damage.
