Did you take Roboute (the Emp) for fluff reasons?

Fluffy indeed. Besides that he gives 3 cp because he's the warlord. Thought that was decent enough :P

So I quite like running Valoris, he's a beast, but obviously he's kinda expensive. I never though about running Guilliman, he's pretty much there for the same thing as Valoris. The only synergy you lose is the re roll 1's to wound. But you extend your rerolls 1's to hit aura by 6" and he's better in combat by a lot, do you think he's 150 points better than Valoris? I'm liking your thinking

This is similar to what I was thinking of running next. The only issue I was thinking about was not having any anti-vehicle, and not having anything to sit of backfield objectives.

I just have a bad feeling that the drop troop guard army's theme song would be "its raining men"

True, but high rate of fire + melee should work i guess. The 3 man custodes squads could be left sitting objectives i think. Best bet.

I would roll the 3 bike squads into 2 bike squads, one being able to Stoop for the other is a big deal and the larger the squad size on a Stoop the better.

 

I get that you are using Roboute (Emp) for fluff reasons, just realize that those points could be better spent.

 

Your guardian squads are fine as backfield units.
