So the lord has no ride- I’d get a household guard unit with your flavor and an Arvus with las cannons for fun and ride around til there’s a hole that needs filling.
There is no room for the medicae in dracs if you’re wanting to deploy them with units.
At 3k 1 malcador is going to die fast and you have plenty of other lascannons with all the dracosan.
I’d look at the infernus with chem.
Then the beautiful overcosted stormhammer-too many point for something that jack of all trades.. queen of none... king of looking baller - what about a knight for less points more Killy ?

I appreciate the reply, after nearly 2 weeks without one, I didn’t really think I’d ever end up getting one. On that note, I redid the list a bit a few days ago with some of the things I’ve learned about the Solar Auxilia since I posted this. I’d only first looked at them a couple days since posting this thread and had fallen for them almost immediately. As for my feelings about Knights and the Malcador Infernus, I’ve never liked how Knights look and the Infernus doesn’t do anything for me either. Here is the updated list if you have any further feedback.

My plan for the Graviton Cannons would be to create Dangerous Terrain to keep my two Lasrifle Tercios safe from being drawn into melee while using the inherent advantage of the Dracosan to re-roll Dangerous Terrain Checks to be able to easily get through said Dangerous Terrain, an advantage also shared by the Veletaris Squads due to their Reinforced Void Armor. Each Lasrifle Section would have a Medicae attacked to them giving them more survivability to shoot from a range outside of most other infantry weapons they could encounter..

Ok- looks like a good amount of boots on the ground with some kickbutt armored column brethren with volkites ready to toast some fools.

Other ideas- at 3k you may see some fliers and you have no means of dedicated AA outside of the Arvus. Have you met the thunderbolt or the very sexy avenger?

Also, I have 120 infantry, 20 flamers, the hq, the medicae and a volkites squad to paint and recently picked up 8 techpriests with grenade launchers ... it’s a BOATLOAD of dudes to buy/build/paint/base/store/carry/setup/breakdown... have you already purchased them all? If not I’d contemplate expanding into the techpriest and servitors for the haywire grenade launching love, pick up an aegis, give it a ammo bunker, check into the basilisks for big boom love and less dudes to paint.
I’m a bit of a masochist in the painting department and it is a true labor of love to sit down and paint 100 dudes barrel tips at a time😜

I think your list is solid, tarpitty and hard hitting as it stands. You’ll wreck some face

I’d personally want a lot of infantry in an Solar Auxilia or Guard army I’d build so I’m willing to deal with that pain. I’ve always loved how the Thunderbolt looks and I could exchange the 3 Leman Russ Annihilators for three stock Thunderbolts. Not sure if that’d be a good trade or not though. Techpriests would likely be a future purchase after I got the base army.
