Since this guy doesn't have a jump pack I assume he's going to join the Tactical Squad? If that's the case, you might want to pick up some gear to help the unit do its usual job better (shooting, mostly). Maybe grab a combi-melta and a lightning claw? There's no need for a power fist on an Independent Character since it wastes his delightfully high Initiative.

I strongly suggest you just give this guy a jump pack if you want him to move like jump infantry. There's no need to take Wings, it's really not a good power at all.

elites
sanguinary gaurd with death masks, chapter banner, infernus pistol and power fist
Drop the Death Masks, they're not cheap and rarely do anything.

sternguard vetran squad with plasma pistol combi-melta
This squad is on foot and is carrying a melta weapon? Good luck with getting to fire that with any degree of regularity.

troops
10 man tactical squad with meltagun missle launcher plasma pistol and teleport homer
Not bad other than the plasma pistol who would probably better be off with a combi-melta or combi-flamer since neither of these weapons will kill the firer. Also, there's literally zero point in having a teleport homer for this list considering you're not taking any Terminators.

10 man death company with thunder hammer, power fist, infernus pistol and hand flamer. each with a jump pack
Ugh, this unit is hideously expensive. Death Company should likely avoid jump packs due to their insanely high cost.

fastattack
baal predator with heavy flamer sponsons and Hk missle

land speeder with heavy flamer
Both of these choices aren't going to help you much unfortunately. Baal Predators shouldn't use heavy flamer sponsons because being that close is basically asking for a meltagun in the face. I can't confess to thinking that the Land Speeder will be terribly effective either unless you give it a multi-melta on top of its heavy flamer.

The main problems with this list are sub-optimal equipment loadouts and a lack of focus. This list can't decide if it's a jump pack army or what. I'd suggest looking up some Blood Angel tactics on the net to start.

I second most of what Katie says. Definately jump pack the Libby and bring a Shield of Sang or another power. Also needs more Assault Marines :D.

Check out this blog post. It's for a 1,750 point jump pack heavy army list but the principals should remain largely the same. Here's another one for 2,000 points, but again it should give you some indication of what a JP heavy list should look like.
