A fluffy Dark Angels list.

I've got a match planned tomorrow against an infantry-heavy Eldar and MEQ list. Recently, I've been toying with the idea to make a nice and fluffy list based around a Techmarine and his tanks. With 1500pts in mind, I came up with the following:

Company Master - TH/SS/Art. armour - 155pt.
Techmarine - Servo harness/Power Axe/Boltgun - 90

Mortis Dreadnought - 2x TL-Autocannon - 125pt

Land Speeder Tempest - 110pt
Ravenwing Bike Squadron - Vet sgt./Power maul 115

Tactical Squad - Power fist/Vet. sgt./melta/missle - 200pt
Tactical Squad - Power sword/Vet. sgt./Pl.gun/lascannon - 200pt

Predator Destructor - Dozer blade - 105pt.
Predator Annihillator - Dozer blade - 145pt.
Land Raider Redeemer - Multi-melta - 255pt

The idea was to field a lot of armour and to hide the HQ's in the tactical squads. Since my opponent agrees to field Forge World stuff, I'm keen on trying out the Tempest with the new IA: Aeronautica rules. It has the "afterburner" rule, which effectively makes it a flyer if the player proclaims it so, at the start of each turn. Thus only AA being able to hit it, with the catch that it can't fire any weapons while airborne.
With the appearance of Death from the Skies by Games Workshop, I fear that the Tempest has become obsolete: the Storm Talon has been reduced in points cost, and it has the same price (110pts) as the Tempest now. Bawww. I'll still be using it however.

We'll see how this list will do/die against the Eldar and Marines.
