Firstly, this is an illegal list; you need to have either Azrael or Sammael to use Ravenwing as Troops, so they are technically still FA; and you have 5 choices of that.

The Dark Angel Fighters suck terribly. Compare 180pts for a TL'd BS5 Lascannon, Heavy bolter and with S6 Missiles, versus 200pts for a Stormraven - which provides the same, but Melta immunity and 12/12/12 AV and a Transport Capacity for 20pts more.

If you want flyers, you want Space Marines for that. For a 175pt tax (Mastery 1 Librarian, 2x 5 Scouts), you can pick up to 3 Stormravens as a Heavy Flyer (200pts for TL'd Lascannon on Turret, multimelta, and S8 AP2 Missiles with a Transport Capacity, versus 180pts for a TL BS5 Lascannon, Heavy Bolters and S6 AP4 Missiles, no Transport... no comparison).

You have a ton of Knights. 465pts in Terminators 2+/3++ Save Terminators, tough as they are, are still only Terminators. Unless you stay close together, in which case the large volume of S7+ AP2 weaponry that Tau and Orks can potentially put out render those defences useless.

In short, look at the models you wish to field;

11 Terminators
18 Bikes
2 AV11 Flyers.

That's... nothing, compared to what Orks, Nids and Grey Knights can bring. GKT's with Hammers. I don't really play Dark Angels, and can't much offer advice than *don't*.

They have some niche units; such as Black Knights.

Consider;

Allied Detach 1 ~600
Sammael
Ravenwing Command Squad, Apothecary, Ravenwing Grenade Launcher, Blade of Caliban
Black Knights, Grenade Launcher
Black Knights, Grenade Launcher

Allied Detach 2 ~350ish
Librarian, Divination, Mastery 2, Space Marine Bike, Powerfield Generator
Ravenwing Command Squad, Apothecary, Ravenwing Grenade Launcher, Blade of Caliban
Scouts

This leaves you around 1k ish pts to spend elsewhere;

For example, Space Marines;

White Scars Captain, Bike
2x Squads of Bikers (+1 Member, 2x Gravguns, Attack bike, Multimelta)
1x Storm Talon, Skyhammer Missile Launcher or Lascannons
2x Stormravens, any one of Lascannon/Asscan/Plasma Cannon+Multimelta

This should come in at 2k points. I couldn't fit the Terminators in, but dropping Sammael's detachment lets you drop a ton of points into a Deathwing Knight squad if you wish.
