So I'm doing a raven guard army for my first 40K army in about 20years and wouldn't mind some feedback. I'll be playing casual games against my friend (blood angels maniac!) And hopefully occasionally at my local GW store. Any and all thoughts would be great.

A good choice overall, and because he is packing AP 2 attacks whatever squad he is running with should focus a bit more on AP3.

Librarian- lvl2,panopoly of the crusader,grav pistol,force staue, jump pack.
With no option for an invulnerable save, I would either recommend you relegate this guy to supporting the scouts and devestators or swap him out for a jump pack armed chaplain with the burning blade. This gives the chaplain 3-4 attacks at S6 no matter if he is using the blade or his crozius and only runs you about five points more than your current librarian.

If you want to stick with the libby I would drop all of his wargear except for mastery level 2.

ELITE
Termie assault squad- claws
Sergeant-hammer, storm shield

Termie assault squad-all hammers/shields
A lot of points invested in two slow moving squads. I would recommend you drop one and boost the other to six or seven strong, giving the squad three thunder hammer and storm shields and the rest lightning claws.

Vanguard veterans-claws & jumppacks
Sergeant-relic blade,grav pistol,melta bombs
I would keep one or two pairs of lightning claw marines, give another two power axes, swap the grav pistol for a storm shield, and try to get another two or three veterans in here.

TROOPS
Scout squad-sniper rifles,camo cloaks
Sergeant- power sword,grav pistol, homer.

Scout squad- 3xsniper rifles,1xmissile launcher(flakk missiles)
Sergeant-power sword,grav pistol, teleport homer.
I would drop the sword and pistol from both squads, give the sergeants sniper rifles of their own and pick up a second missile launcher for the first squad (though don't bother with the flakk missiles, 1-2 shots isn't going to do all that much.)

The teleport homers could be good choices, but I'm not sure they are necessary.

I would consider getting both squads land speeder storms, not to move them around but as extra firepower.

FAST ATTACK
Assault squad-9x jump packs, 2x plasma pistols
Sergeant-eviscerator
I'd suggest dropping the squad down to eight strong, giving the eviscerator to someone other than the sergeant, and getting a power weapon and combat shield on a veteran sergeant.

2 x stormtalons- 1x heavy bolter
1xlascannon
I'd try to either get lascannons on the first one, or skyhammer missiles.

HEAVY SUPPORT
Devastator squad- lascannon, multimelta,missile launcher(flakk)
Sergeant-chainsword,combi plasma,signum.
I'd try to make the squad six or seven strong, drop the combi weapon from the sergeant, and try to put three missile launchers in. If you have the points for a fourth missile launcher than go for it (at which point aim to have the squad be seven or eight strong.)

Thanks for the suggestions,that's really useful. The reason I was thinking of taking 2 Termie squads was to deep strike them near the scouts with the teleport homers after scout/infiltrate positioning close to any key units I'm fighting.

Have you thought about running some bare bones scouts in squads of 5 using LS storms to run about in to be fluffy

I'd love to have another couple of scout squads, bare bones like you say and do just that, unfortunately I just don't have the models. I'm going to do another list which is pure fluff just for the fun of running it.pretty much gonna be assault and scouts as I believe I can count assault squads as troops choice with Korvydae.
