dreadnoughts and terminators are good, but death company are to expensive in my opinion, also they will probably get wiped out before they reach rapid fire/charge range. i'd probably drop the death company for podded dreadnoughts, or something else.
It's tricky to think to bring in more Dreadnoughts in place of Death-company (due to the 3 elite choice cap already hit, and shooty dreads don't help me much towards an assault army).
Far as Death-company Themselves in price, they can indeed be pricy, but have some good payments for them in turn- plus at the least taking 5 lets me get that 2nd assault centered dread in. But more to the point, it's just about how you use them: pay for 7 for a total of 130 points (10 be 190 points) with the 130 with my hq Chaplain 130 points (260 points total), bit more than a normal A squad- but on that charge I get re-roll hit -and- wounds (plus I've never really been a big Librarian guy.. They aren't bad- I just like captains or solid up-front fighters). Transport is tricky of course, moving 6 inches = suck ass for a D-company and not worth it. Which really the big reason why I take them is because I have to take an Anti-air unit (and my only option in my codex is a Stormraven.), so they combo well with the transport.
Far as them getting wrecked, they serve a purpose- if they jump on any swarm of nids or orks- it will die. And combos also well with a D-company Dread with duel Blood-fists. So one unit is for basic infantry, and another for 2+ savers and tanks. At the very least, the dread can get snap shots for my D-company.

They approached towards the planet upon wings of fire that engulfed the sky in this free fall -
armor shaking and trembling as they seem to only hasten further their Descent from the heavens face first -
It was mere seconds now; the end of this leap was inevitable to them -
This jump would easily end with but a splatter of their corpses to the mettle streets -
Within an instant, they shift their bodies and thrust themselves upward -
Their descent swiftly haltered, hitting the ground with what sounded like thunder on the metal cobbled streets, echoing through the city-scape -
The Angels of Death had arrived. And their message was clear.
