Welcome back jesus, you've picked quite the time with 8th looming ever closer! This looks like a pretty good list, with four Valkyries I'm assuming they're for the Vets?

 

That leaves the CCS and Knights to deploy, so you'll need to be careful. The Knights will have no escorts to stop melta strike etc and the CCS is only a few Guardsmen. All that melta will do a number on vehicles and the like, and while the rocket pots add capable anti-personnel they may be limited by their movement arcs or the needs of the embarked unit/missions. Perhaps a cheaper Vet squad with flamers for crowd control is an idea?

Its a good idea. Maybe it'd be worth changing 2 squads to flamers and seeing i can sneak in a vendetta?

And yeah. Gameplan is to run the Vets in the valks and turn 2 them in, CCS and knights holding the line for a turn. Id be looking to obliterate threats to the valks at all costs so i can switch to hover and pummel the rest under rocket pods and demo charge

Numbers and Reserves will be the things to work with in a list like this so you run into the risk of certain fast moving armies being a hard counter. AV12 isn't too tough so might be hard to reduce the threats enough for going into hover, as a fair amount of fire power will be needed from your flyers.

 

A Vendetta would be great if you could squeeze one in, but it might be a bit too expensive.
