I know that people say that the dark angels were given the short end of the stick in the latest incarnation of the book but I really enjoy the chapter. All this leads to my request for help making a balanced list that will do well n a tournament setting. I have a rhino, a predator (1 autocannon, 2 lascannons), 10 space marines, 1 dreadnaught (assualt cannon, rocket pods), 6 ravenwing bikes (with 1 attack bike), 2 land speeders (both with assualt cannons, one with heavy bolter, and one with a multimelta) and I have a company master with a power sword, and a combi-plasma gun. Now what should I add or take away? This is my first 40k army so I dont really kno much about making lists but I am willing to take advice. Any advice will be much appreciated, and I thank any who give it in advance.
You have enough for a nice list. Best buy now would be devastators, as the come with a bunch of heavy weapons. Maybe a second rhino or a razorback, and a second predator. As for Hq, maybe a chaplain on bike? He's a lot better then a plain commander with PW.

DA got so much harder - correct usage of the combat squads rule (especially for devastators) can drastically increase the power of the list (even if it gives away a tad mroe VP).
From what you own IMO two things stand out to me as dodgy-
1) The pred set up isn't ideal - I would either go full triple lascannon or go pure "destructer" (autocannon turret and sponson heavy bolters).
2) The deadnaught - with such a huge conflict of ranges between the two weapons you'll never get the best out of it - either go assault cannon and close combat weapon or keep the missile and take one of theo ther, longer ranged weapons (personally i'm a sucker for plasmacannon).

ok thanks for the advice, how should I set up my terminators? (what weapons should I give them?) I forgot to mention I have devastators and scouts (I bought a ravenwing and dark angels battalion set) what weapons should I give the devastotors? Is there anythig else I should buy? land raiders or things such as this? Anyway thanks for the advice and please keep it coming.
as you have 2 landspeeders id take the second and do it up a little to represent sammael in his landspeeder.
this means your full ravenwing squad 6 bikes, AB, LST can be a troops choice along with your 10 man tactical squad. (split them into combat squads, spec one ranged with a rocket launch to stay behind and 1 melta/plasma and a power fist to get up front in the rhino. (chuck the company master in as a second HQ choce with the 5 man squad for some CC kick.
the dred needs either a lascannon or a power fist depnding on how your using it.
predator can lose the las sponsons and be a 75 point autocannon platform for now, use it to hunt high toughness units.
