Its a really good army list but the first mistake is you can't take a 5 man tactical squad and take a heavy weapon, it has to be a full 10 man squad and then broken down into two combat squads. With 5 points extra it would be worth upgrading your chaplin to Lemartes because you'll get an extra wound and you get a death masks. Thats all I can think of for now but other than that its a great list

ill change the tactical squad and take a look at lemartes

chaplain-jump pack-120

Assault squad-veteran wth power weapon and 2 plasma pistols-185

5 man tactical squad-plasma gun-125
razorback-twin linked lascannon-80


Assault squad-veteran wth power weapon and 1 plasma pistol-170

devestators-5 man, 2 heavy bolters, 2 plasma cannons-195

4 death company- jump packs-20
3 death company-jump packs-105

1000

the onli reason i wouldnt want to take lemartes is that i dont like taking named characters in anything less than 2000 points

I would get rid of the devs. BA pay extra for heavy weapons so I would suggest attack bikes as they are only __ pt a pop and have 2 wounds and t5.

Also give your Vet. Sgts PF instead of power weapons it will allow them to destroy vehicle, IC and troops with ease. I would drop the razorback and make the tactical squad a 10 man with a ML and plasma gun and split this into combat squads. One with the ML (to sit back) and the other with the Sgt with a PF and the plasma gun to advance and support the assault squads.

Just a few ideas

Goodluck

A bike with a heavy bolter is just as effective at taking out infantry and it has t5 and 2w and only costs __ points

As an added note, for the same cost you spent on your devs, you can get 2 HB attack bikes and 2 melta attack bikes with t5 and that comes out to 8W and 2+ armor save....thats tough to beat

Goodluck

Alias is dead on with the A-Bikes, keep them in squads of 1-2 they work best. I run single MM A-Bikes to prevent Last Man Standing test. The LST is nice but not worth the points, you can replace it with a squad of HB A-Bikes, not as killy but more durable IMHO, additionally you save 10pts in the process.

Ditch the flamer in the Tac squads or upgrade it to a differant weapon. They just don't have the maneuverability to make it useful. You could buy these guys a Rhino or just upgrade them to another Regular Assault squad. Its pricey however you might want to get yourself a PF for one of these squads. PF is like insurance, expensive but some day you may need it to get you out of a jam.

BA are hard to run at 1000 pts, but it looks like you have a pretty solid list. Good Luck
