I like the look of the first list as it is fast and hard hitting. I also like the multiple fast, multi-wound units that could potentially be healed up by the Priest.

My only query is the presence of the Judiciar. Is he just there to make sure the Intercessor Sergeants get to swing their hammers if the squad gets charged?
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 for the response, any changes you'd recommend? Initially that was the plan but he also really helps as a deterant for combat units trying to charge my Sanguinary guard if the centre of the board gets congested.
