HQ Vulkan

Elites : Dreadnought with Plasma Cannon, Missile Launcher

Dreadnought with Multi- Melta, Twin linked Auto cannon

Terminator Squad 5 man Cyclone Missile Launcher, Sgt with power sword,and a Land Raider deployed in or out depending on mission type

Troops : 5 Scouts + Telion , Camo cloaks , 4 sniper rifles for crazie tough characters ,1 heavy Bolter

10 man Tac squad melta gun,Multi-Melta,Razorback

10 man Tac squad melta gun,Las cannon,Razorback

10 man Tac squad flamer, Plasma Cannon,Razorback, Sgt with power weapon


Fast Attack: 1-Attack bike, Multi-Melta


Heavy Support: Thunderfire Cannon

Vindicator

35.9% Elite
2.5% Fast
10.7% Heavy
9.5% HQ

Not exactly an expert on Space Marines, but here's what I think:

What exactly are you going to do with the scout group? Depending on what you're going to have them do will change whether or not that load out will be advantageous.
I'd probably take assault termies rather then the current ones you have. You could give them thunder hammers (which will count as master crafted) and storm shields. I'd do this not just to capitalize on Vulkan, but also because you have a distinct lack of power in assault. Plus, where is Vulkan going to be the whole time? He could be in the Raider with the assault termies for the combined assault, or of course include him in one of your tac squads, but Vulkan isn't exactly that great in the shooting phase.

I don't exactly know why you have one attack bike for your fast attack. He's going to be too fast unless you slow him down with the rest of your army. And even then, he's probably just going to get killed without doing much.

Just my initial thoughts, feel free to listen to or ignore any of the above.

Well Vulkan was going to hang out with the termies for a counter to what ever my adversary's big bad assaulter were, and my scouts were to shoot hq's and named characters,high toughness guys, or Telion to pick out the really nasties guy hiding in a unit,and the attack bike really is just for snipe 1 or 2 high av stuff and because well I had 50 pts left over . Most of my oponets are either CSM or Orks with an ocasonal space wolves.....
also the csm run 2 difilers and a deamon prince most of the time so I was looking for long range take out powerand the orks like to run 1 battle wagon 2 squiggoths 1 looted wagon and generally mech force.....

If the termies are going to be with Vulkan then they pretty much have to be assault termies. No real point in a putting a close combat character with a shooty squad.
