Simple run down of a thought in progress thread.
1 - What unit options do you like?
2 - What Detachment options can we use, and with a normal hard cap of three for 2,000 points, choose wisely
3 - What combinations of packs, HQ's, WGPL's, (x)PL's, such as, GH or BC PL's, do you plan on?
4 - What will above option hunt? Or, counter?
5 - Transports?
6 - If no rides, Teleport Deep strike?
7 - Do you favor flying or ground transports?
8 - What units do you consider our/your new pillars, or, foundational HQ's and packs in close support?
9 - Remember, all Index Imperium I and Chapter Approved 2017 options that are not in the Codex are still accessible, so, Bikes galore if you want!
1 - I personally love GH's, Rune Priests are going to be terrifying for support powers and utility, WP's continue to make BC's better, and Logan with WGBL, Njal, Bjorn, and Arjac scattered around will really provide great reroll options!
2 - I'm totally unsure, as I tend to play at least 3,000 point games, so, that's not really a normal three detachment setup
3 - 1 WGPL, 1 GHPL, 8 GHPL's, what's going to be 2 PG's, every GH has a Chainsword, the GHPL has a Chainsword, might swap to a Powersword, and the WGPL currently has a SS/PF, because that's what is modeled. I still love WP and BC packs in an LRC, with WGPL, 14 BC's, and a WP.
4 - I tend to favor more all-rounder units, and recently tried to get some more PG bits to make my packs of GH's a bit more capable, overall
5 - Yes, all day, every day. I do play higher points games, so the problem will be what I can squeeze in, and with how tight points will be, wow...
6 - Not really, but, I may have to get used to the idea in 2,000 point games from now on. Still used to the older, "Will not teleport," fluff.
7 - Some of each, but, mostly ground. The problem since the Index and CA 2017 has been keeping rides alive and mobile. RP's will now fix that, somewhat.
8 - RP's are ... a given, now? Way too good, but, with the option to choose powers just before each game, wow, go without RP's at one's own risk! WP's are still great, and really seem to buff BC packs well. WL's are not really an option to me, as, Logan is my chosen WL on the table. As far as WGBL and WGPL options, I think my SS/PF WGPL's will actually become somewhat useful, and a pretty solid threat.
WGBL's and WG TDA with TH/SS are going to be painful on the charge, and, my one Spartan with Logan, Arjac, Njal, a WG TDA PL and 8 WG TDA means my five characters can HI all over the place.
9 - I may need to see about bikes now, and, some RP's riding around will not only drive my enemy up the proverbial wall, but, bike RP's should really help the utility and support role of my RP's. Going to need to see about WG Bikers and likely some SC Bike packs.
