Moving to 1500 points with my Crimson Fists

I think I have my 1000 point list done, looking ahead to 1500 points.  Picked up the "Imperial Blue" from Vallejo at the Gopher since my last one finally ran out...  Making more Combi Weapons for my Sternguard, and converting more of the lads over...  NEED to get off my ass and finish up my second Drop Pod.  So 2 Sternguard Squads, and 2 Scout Squads and I am liking the Tech-marine with Thunderfire Cannon...  Last game it was probably the MVP, 4 blasts at Str 6 every turn?  Can opt for the No Cover Save shots should I face one of the IG hordes...  And Scouts with the 2+ cover save?  Yes, that will work...

Need to decide if I will Proxy in a "Storm Talon"...  I am thinking it will be dealing with a few fliers...  That or I bring out a DN and ?  Or a Librarian I guess...  Irking looking at the Storm Talon and comparing it to the Valkyrie/Vendetta or the Necron Fliers...  'Course, at least they HAVE a bloody flier unlike my Wolves/DA, etc...  Thinking I will run one of my Scout Squads as a Flanker and have the Talon escort them...  Play the Air Superiority fighter to cover for my lads...  REALLY concerned about the Helldrake of the Chaos Marines.  I simply have no real defense against that monster.  Shoot at it lots and hope for 6's is NOT going to work.  So, guess I need to bring something to engage it directly in the air...  Would rather have the Vendetta with the 3 TL Las Cannon of course :-)  But, better I think than the Aegis line with Quad Gun...  Concerned that people will have figured out how to deal with that, then I am SOL...
