    Waste of valuable points. If you want to take these guys as anti-tank, field 2 squads of 5 each with 2 meltaguns, it'll be stronger in anti-tank and give you more flexibility. Your better off hiking your grey knights in that way you can unleash storm bolter hell.

    You really need another anti-tank dreadnought. Some how I'm not sure but you've invested a lot of points into very few things. It feels very small to me, not sure why.

    You've got the makings of a solid DH list, but you need a few tweaks to get all the way there.

    Firstly, as noted, you must take a GK Hero to unlock any DH heavy support option other than an orbital strike.

    Secondly, you are desperately short on anti-armour solutions. At 1500 pts, you really need three solid options in this department.

    If you want to keep the basic structure of your army, particularly the shooty I-lord firebase, I'd first exchange the combi-plasma on the acolyte for a simple bolter. The acolyte exists primarily as an ablative wound. Don't overspend on a model that is not only likely to die quickly, but one that you should also prefer to die over your other retinue members.

    I would also favor a Rhino over the Chimera for a melta squad. The Rhino has superior side armour, more access points, and less weaponry, which for this squad is actually A Good Thing. Chimeras encourage you to sit back and shoot, which is fine. But with meltas, you need to get nice and close to the enemy ... which is also where a TP homer is going to be put to best use anyway.

    Then I'd recoup points -- dropping a GK or three and/or up to 4 ISTs (a melta squad is nearly a suicide squad as it is) -- for at least a BC with a psycannon.

    Then you'll have to provide enough points to get your 3rd anti-armour solution. The cheapest would be a 2nd dreadnought -- even one with AC/DCCW could serve in this list, I think, though the preference would still be for a TLLC/ML dread -- but more mounted melta ISTs is an option, too. Getting enough points for this will require some tough decisions. I think it's either reorganizing your GK squads -- after dropping several of them -- or dropping the assassin (a little unfun), or dropping the shooty retinue for the I-lord and turning him into a psycannon-toting sniper Elite choice.

    Looking pretty good! (But watch out for the LO rules! You've posted itemized points costs, a big no-no.)

    With your spare points, I'd get a psycannon on the BC, and them some random bits of wargear here and there (e.g., targeters and frags on Justicars), and/or perhaps another mystic in the I-lord squad.
