Ok I'm a girl and new to 40k so don't make too much fun of me! Anyways here is my first BA 1750 pt list, I was hoping you guys could give me your thoughts on it and tell me if I'm headed in the right direction. Here it is:

HQ: Gabriel Seth - 160 pts

Elite: Furioso Librarian Dreadnought - 190 pts
Extra Armour
Might of Heroes & Wings of Sanguinius

Terminator Assault Squad - 200 pts

Sanguinary Priests x 3 - 246 pts
Jump packs x 2
Storm Bolters x 2
Terminator Armour & Power Sword x 1
Melta Bomb x1

Troops: 10 man Assault Squad - 225 pts
Meltagun x 2
Infernus Pistol

10 man Assault Squad - 225 pts
Meltagun x 2
Infernus Pistol

10 man Assault Squad - 225 pts
Meltagun x 2
Infernus Pistol

Heavy: Land Raider Crusader (Terminator dedicated transport) - 275 pts
Multi melta
Extra armour

So that's it. Plan is for Seth and terminator priest to team up with the terminator squad and run around in the crusader for some speed before assaulting and annihilating whatever they come across (hopefully). Assault squads will probably DoA in and hopefully pop tanks with the meltas before running around with the 2 jump pack priests and assaulting whatever is left over. Librarian dreadnought because its just plain fun, will also help out the priestless squad if needed.
What do you guys think?

I'd say Assault sergeants would be much happier (and deadly) with some kind of special CC weapon (PF, PW or LC is up to your preferences).

And both Land Raider and Librarian Dread, being the only targets in the first round, may have tough time enduring enemy shooting. LR will probably be fine, but Dread may have issues. And, if your enemy has enough long guns to crack the Crusader, termies will have tough time walking to enemy without storm shields. So I'd advise to toss in a couple.

Other than that, nice list.
Death Star looks better now, and you're more target-rich, that is also good.

But AC+HB loadout... There is a lot of anti-personnel power in your list already. With Crusader's sponsons and 30 assault marines, 4 heavy bolters are somewhat of an overkill. So I'd suggest dropping MM from Crusader and storm bolters from priests - it'd give you enough points to turn at least one Predator into Rifleman Dreadnought (2*TL Autocannons). That'd give more serious long-range anti-armor punch.
Or, if you don't like it, at least give meltabombs to the assault sergeants.

P.S. Scattering big blasts don't work well with DoA assault squads, anyway. So leave Vindicators for full-mech build.
