The list is *almost* complete, but have about 100 pts of wiggle left and not sure what to spend it on, and would love some critique overall.
Ideas I've had is a jump Sanguinary Priest, 3 boltstorm aggressors, or just another scout squad and some scattered upgrades.
Basic principle is simple, list tries to leverage what I think are the strongest things BA can do, namely intercessor core supported by the SoS to give you some guys who can take the midfield and weather some serious shooting while being bully melee units, especially if they live till turn 3, a DC unit with handflamers starting the game off forlorning up the table, turning a screen to ash and then punking something important while tagging as much as possible with consolidations, supported by scouts deployed danger close, and a Sanguinary Guard bomb for a knockout punch, and of course some heroes like a smash captain and nu_Mephiston.
Some of its advantages are, everything is very easy to hide behind ruins, as it's all very low to the ground, which can matter a huge deal if your stuck going second.
My enemies anti-tank weapons won't have many good options, especially turn 1, as they can all hang back out of LoS and then move up and get shots, or don't require LoS at all in the case of the Quad Mortars.
Watching people fire lascannons into intercessors in cover with a 5+++ is amusing most of the time.
Hector Rex is a psychic beast, with GK/Tsons both getting their book so recently, I have a feeling lots of people are going to be packing psychic heat, and this list can bring 6 denies, and Rex himself can cause 2d3 mortal wounds, deny overwatch on a target, AND score you a CP, assuming you've made the necessary sacrifices to RNJesus, the Imperial Saint of luck.
It packs plenty of screen removal with the scouts and mortars, has enough anti tank between character melee and hidden inferno pistols I'm not super concerned, and I have 0% chance to kill myself with an overcharged plasmagun.
Thoughts and/or ideas on the last 100 pts?
