I think you've got way too many heavy flamers. Assault cannons or even heavy bolters might be a little better; I've got two with twin linked lascannons, and I know some people prefer the lascannon/twin-linked plasma gun, but I'm not sure what those would do to your points cost.

Yeah, big shortage of hitting power in the troops. No PF or PW at all is a liability. Those 5-man squads will get swept aside pretty easily, and flamer Razorbacks aren't doing a whole lot for you. There can be such a thing as too much mech if it's costing you elsewhere.

I would probably lose the 5th squad and spread some love around to the others in the form of better weapons. Maybe even bump one up to a full 10-man squad in a Rhino.

Drop Mephy, he's too expensive for 1500 pts, replace him with an Epistolary. Personally I hate assault squads in transports, I suggest 10 man squads with a PF and 2 meltas with a priest in each squad. As for the heavy support, don't take regular preds, especially with those ones being so expensive, instead bring Baal preds, they are multi functional and have scout. I do like the vindicator however

Blood Angels(3000-4000pts)- W11-L4-D6 (Plog updated 1/30/12)
Tyranids(750 pts)- W3-L1-D1
Space Wolves(about 1200 pts) W4-L1-D1 (Plog updated 2/15/12)
