well it depends on what type of fighting style you like. Blood angels are a fast army so no matter what strat you take you will be trying to assault as fast as possible. Necrons lack a lot of CC and focus more on shooting. If you can get into CC with him and stop him from teleporting you have a good chance of winning. And welcome to the wonderful world of Blood Angels.

That is pretty much my set up lol I play mech angels just use TL LC if a monolith is on the board. I use Gabriel Seth or Mepheston because both will rock whoever they come in contact with, especially if you have a sanguinary priest nearby.

well if your vindi lasts long enough and he does have that monolith you need as much strength hitting it as possible, as you probably know the no 2d6 armor pen rule. but yeah swiss cheese his line then assault the crap out of him. I'd love to see what you plan on as your list.

3 inforneus pistols
1 power fist
vindicator
seage sheild

asultcannon
heavey flamers

SB is a waste and he doesn't need wings just put him with a RAS
sanguin guard
chapter banner
3 inforneus pistols
1 power fist
No real need for the PF or pistols
vindicator
seage sheild
Fine as is
baal predx2
asultcannon
heavey flamers
Either play flamers or HB
assult squadx2
flamer
power wepon
I would take a melta over the flamer if may only hit 1 target but it is ap1 so no WBB if the lord is nowhere in sight
razorbackX2
asultcannon or lazcannon with plazma
Oh yes I forgot about the rends, I run 1 of each in my list
then that leaves me with roughly 300 pts for a 1500pt list left
with the points left over you could take Mepheston and a sang priest with a JP, that is if you use my suggestions.
If you don't mind I could show you what I would do with the list.

that looks really good dose the priest actuly make it to combat to do his job
well all he is doing really is buffing the sanguinary guard and if you run Mepheston near him he gets FNP and +1S and +1I, even though he doesn't need the initiative. He's making your sanguinary guard attack like this, 4 attacks with master crafted power weapons at S5, I5 so in most cases they attack first then you add mepheston into the equation. 5 force weapon attacks S7 or S10 attacks at I8, this works if his lord is near his warriors.

I would put a power fist with each squad you plan to throw into close comabt. You definitely don't want to get pushed into close combat with a Dreadnought or a Killa Kan and not be able to take it down. I also found Sanguinary Guard to be a points dump, I thought they would be cool, but in games that are 1500-2000 points, throwing away that many points on just 5 guys will end in you being vastly outnumbered in a game. With an honour guard, you may lose the the weapons and the 2+ save, but you get a free Sanguinary Priest with the squad, giving you that 4+ FNP, and you can deck them out with gear, and still have points left over to beefo ut other units. Also, you have two 5 man squads of assault marines, which will end up getting wrecked due to lack of numbers. I would take 2 squads of 10, with a power fist and 2 melta guns. How many points do you plan on playing with?

Here is a list I am currently playing around with:

HQ:
- Mephiston
- 5 Honor Guard, Power Fist, 2 Melta Guns, Chapter Banner, Jump Packs

Elites:
- X3 Sanguinary Priests, Jump Packs

Troops:
- Scout Snipers with Missile Launcher
- 10 Assault Marines, 2X Meltas, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol
- 10 Assault Marines, 2X Meltas, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol
- 10 Assault Marines, 2x Flamers, Power Fist, Infernus Pistol
- 9 Death Company Marines, 2 Power Swords, Power Fist + Lemartes
- Death Company Dreadnought

Fast Attack:
Baal Predator, TL Assault Cannon, Heavy Bolters
Baal Predator, TL Assault Cannon, Heavy Bolters


Also looking into a Stormraven for the Death Co, and possibly a squad of Vanguard Vets

Doesn't mean you have to take that exact list, I'm just giving an example of a powerful list
