2K list idea I've contemplated playing.

Hello, I have the following list I've considered building and playing with friends for casual games and possibly the odd pickup game at a new LGS.

HQ 235
Chaplain w/Terminator Armour
Librarian; LvL 2, Terminator Armour

Troops 680
Tactical Squad; Plasmagun, Heavy Bolter, Stormbolter
Tactical Squad; Plasmagun, Heavy Bolter, Stormbolter
Tactical Squad; Plasmagun, Heavy Bolter, Stormbolter
Tactical Squad; Meltagun, Multi-Melta, Combi-Melta

Elites 320
Sternguard; Drop Pod w/DWML
Dreadnought; Drop Pod w/DWML

Fast 290
Stormtalon; Twin-linked Lascannons
Bike Squad; +2 Bikes, 2 Gravguns, Grav Pistol

Heavy 475
Predator; Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Landraider Redeemer; Multi-Melta

The Chaplain will load up with the Sternguard and, depending on my opponent's deployment, come in turn 1 -OR- 2 should I need the Dreadnought to soften things a bit on the opponent's side of the board.
The Librarian will load up in the LRR with a Tactical Squad and contest objectives as much as possible.
The Predator and Vindicator will flank the LRR as it moves along and possibly split off to face the threats that will crop up for the LRR.
Three of the tactical squads will stay on objectives and hopefully down anyone trying to get in their way.
Stormtalon is in the mix for any air support the opponent may bring.
The Bike Squad is the Tank/Monster Hunting unit.

As always, C&C is welcome :)

Why do you want to put the Chaplain with the Sternguard? He seems....well, kinda useless in that squad. Where my thought starts and finishes with this is that Chappy's are good because of Zealot, and why would you ever choose to charge instead of shoot with Sternguard? Please enlighten me if this is just some next level tactical play that I totally missed.

Plus Terminator armour barely makes him more survivable, takes up two spots on the Pod, and stops the squad from preforming a Sweeping Advance on the enemy.

Aside from that guy the list looks tight. As per my above comment, if I were to change anything I would drop the Chaplain and the Terminator armour on the Librarian for either another Dreadnought in a Pod or another Stormtalon. I'd also play the Libby with the Sternguard, which is how you typically play them if I recall correctly...? I'd also be tempted to drop the DWMLs on the Pods for another Sternguard member, but they were handy in my last game.
