Looks very strong. Plenty of mobility with CC and shooting power balanced by just enough boots on the ground to secure your objectives.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

Cheers, looks like it ticks all the boxes to me too. Had some feedback with some players saying Inceptors are a liability?!? Think I'm going to give them a whirl, the chance to hit tough units hard with the plasma and clear chaff with the bolters looks good to me, and with the captain and the possibility to use the banner I am confident they'll do well...

My inceptors never really needed a babysitter, honestly. But I only played bolter inceptors so far.

I really like that list. I just kinda miss a sanguine priest for the SG

If I was only running bolters I wouldn't bother, but with the opportunity to overcharge relatively safely and rain death appeals! :)
Have a priest model to potentially switch in if needed, 'could' drop the Inceptors in with Cap Smash instead, just gives me more tactical flexibility having the second captain, see how it goes...

Probably going to try this, frees up the space/pts for the priest who can boost and heal as needed, cheers! 😎
