The problem I see with your army is that it's a "Greatest Hits of the DH Codex" and not a coherent army. You don't have enough shooting or close combat power. You don't have enough anti-vehicle firepower nor enough anti-infantry firepower. You have spent lots of points on shiny bits and unfocused builds rather than using only what is essential and effective.
The DH codex has lots of bright shiny stuff that looks attractive but is really unnecessary. DH units are very powerful as-is. You don't need or want frills to spice them up. They're perfectly fine the way they are. You want to spend your points getting more of that rather than diluting it.
For example, you can make a reasonably effective 1500 pt force using just the units you are currently employing. But they need to be reorganized a bit. Try the following instead.
[245 pts] BC, 4 GKT retinue
[201 pts] 5 GKs, 2x psycannon, Justicar w/targeter
[286 pts] 10 GKs, incinerator, Justicar w/frags
[128 pts] 5 ISTs, 2x melta; Rhino, extra armour, smoke
[123 pts] 5 ISTs, 2x melta; Rhino, smoke
[258 pts] LRC, smoke
[258 pts] LRC, smoke
Total: 1499 pts
This gives you a couple of melta suicide squads to shield your LRCs on their flanks from similar units, and also the ability to rush ahead and de-mech your opponent. You have a GK psycannon "mini-purgation" unit to hold your home objective and shoot downfield. And your LRCs are the most amazing dakka tanks in the game not to mention carrying deadly deadly cargo that you can unload as you need.
Dreadnoughts, sadly, have no purpose in DH armies these days. They were fine for 4th edition 40K, and can work in Marine armies, but don't do us DH players any favors.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

First, greetings from LO. Feel free to contact either myself or any other mod if you have any questions.
Second, this thread belongs in the army list section.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
Thanks for the advice!
Ill be keeping the dread for now (budget constriants) and will upgrade to a 2nd LRC later down the track but i see your point about your reconmendation.
Tough thing is after not playing 40k for neigh on 10 years I have no real feel for the game nor its mechanics, but im really enjoying the painting.
Ill look over my collection and adjust the list to incorporate your suggestions cheers!
5th ed has become a very mechanized game. need mobility.
number6 hit it dead on. keep em basic. one thing i noticed in ur list is that u gave ur pagk's a rhino. they cannot be assigned any transport.
gotta load em into a lr. rhinos and chimeras can only be given to stormies and inq's.
dreads just do not survive long enough to be effective any more.
Yeah getting that impresson well for the time being ill try and make it work and the modeling options for the Dred still inspire me.
Looking at using the commisars from the death korp of krieg as vetran sergents for the storm troopers, leading squads of karskin sporting inquisition markings using the forge world brass stuff.
Plan to post up pic's when im closer to finishing.
cool cant wait to see the pics. i also did the same and bought a couple boxes of kasirkins. i tend to leave the sarg personally. always seems to work out that way.
i have two dreads also.. wish i could use them :[ i used teh sm venerable dread for one and it looks pretty sick if i do say so myself. just needs some kind of =][= markings tho
Going for a different appraoch now with list
GK allied with SM
Terminator Armour 
Tactical Squad (10 SM)
Tactical Squad (6SM)
Twin Linked Lascannon 
Grey Knights (7PAGK)
Vanguard Veterans (5SM)
4x Power Weapons
Twin Linked Lascannon 
Grey Knight Terminators (4GKT) 
Land Raider Redeemer 
Total 1500 even
So the approach will be the 3 troop carriers plus the GKT and Captain in the Redeemer Form up on the field with the PAGK in reserve to teleport in (taking the PAGK as a fast attack option from the codex allows them to outside of normal scenario rules)
Its a hard hitting in your face army, but of course i havn't played with it yet so not sure if its a good list.
Id really like to get the 1st 1500 sorted as a psudo modeling and shopping list
follow-up to take it to 1750 will be 2x dreads and increaseing the GKT squad size by 1
Please let me know your thoughts
