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 think the infernus pistols are kinda overkill on the assault squads really. They're not great for their points, especially compared to the standard meltaguns. Drop them for some CC weapons because as the priests have the only CCW that can ignore armour they will be targetted quickly and taken out

Other than that I really like the list.
I think if you're gonna use the baal's fast movement you won't use the heavy bolters all that much. move them up 12" and they can fire one of those weapons. Now if you're gonna have them slightly more static then that's a good set up.

The assault squads are good but the sergeant's weapons don't really work with the guns. Drop 2 meltaguns to flamers and you can change one lightning claw to a power fist. that way you have a squad dedicated to anti infantry, 2 flamers and a claw, and one dedicated to anti tank, two meltaguns and a fist. the other assault squads can be a kind of balanced support to the other 2 then, depending on which one needs help.
