The lists look ok some things to note both list will hardly be using Grim Resolve, list 1 will get more bang out of it though and after playing a game today with Dark Angels I can vouch it really is helpful on gunline specially devastators.

I think you could really use Sammael for his buffs to your units of Ravenwing.

The assaul squad I feel is not going to pull it's weight, neither is the chaplain, Dark Angels are no better than basic marines in assault, that's a job better left to the Deathwing or Blood Angels.

Other than that I like how you got a tact squad with heavy bolter for the stratagem and the devastator with the 1 missile launcher is also solid. Try to increase your black knights and i think you got a great jump start to a very solid DA army.

Remember the strength is in shooting with Greenwing and Ravenwing. Get some deathwing if you want to engage in assault.

In reference to Akaiyou's response I agree on several points.  The jump pack elements are largely wasted in a Dark Angels list.  This is sad, I know, because I love the idea of Assault Marines in most armies.  Here though you could redistribute those points toward more effective units and/or upgrades for Ravenwing.  I also recommend Sammael on Corvex if possible.
Repent, for tomorrow you die.
