Just revisiting an old list, now that everyone seems a-OK with Shield on vehicles, no reason not to try it out. This is a firepower list, with little emphasis on combat. The Furioso Dreads sprout Wings and cause problems; counter-assaulting, etc. The Preds sit back and open up the cans, while the Baals put firepower into the squads thus exposed. The Razorbacks throw down tons of firepower and aren't the worst in assault, if you do it right. With 5+ saves on all that armor, it should be durable.

Thoughts?

I'd replace the tl Lascannon turrets with Autocannons. The points saved are enough to actually put something useful in that 3rd ELITES slot. Or even turn one of those Librarians into something a little scarier. Possibly giving things a bit more of a Blood Angels flavor by replacing one of the Razorback RAS with some DC. Maybe replace the Librarian with a Reclusiarch and use the other points from the turret swap for a nice sized Rhino DC? I'm a firm believer in ICs with a higher than basic I. Otherwise you'll get one round of CC while dying to the simultaneous directed attacks. Going first reduces the number of models that can go after you and that's an advantage not to be wasted.

I honestly don't see the point in 4 Librarians. What happens if you run into Space Wolves, Eldar or Tyranids? All those fancy little mutant powers won't mean squat if you never get to use them.
