What would you recommend switching up about this list, Reskin?
You play too fluffy for me to recommend things.
I suppose it would be just subtle things to give you more redundancy so when things die you aren't left stranded and stuck like "how am I going to deal with this now?"
I know you love your characters so we'll work on that later, but start with changing the close combat dreadnought, ours aren't buffed yet. And to be honest, even when they get the buff in the new codex, I doubt I would ever walk an 8 wound vehicle up the board. With the improvement to base damage on guns now, even things like the heavy bolter will take them out with enough ease. So if you must take the dreadnought, keep it as a gun platform, since I don't see you using astral aim on your other units, he won't be competing for it. Try and fit 2. That's a decent amount of Anti tank to help you deal with things like knights. That's 2/3 elite slots and you still can keep your unit of paladins.
How many times did your Techmarine heal a vehicle. And he can only do it once, its very fluffy, but honestly if you protected your vehicles more you wouldn't have that problem as much.
Remember, you want your vehicles to soak some fire, at least then your infantry isn't getting blasted. You'd just like them to earn their points back before you have to take them off the table. Like your Stormraven last game.
Not having warp shaping as a spell on any of your characters is an issue. I know you feel safer in tide of shadows, but honestly by turn 3 you should be in tide of fury with the way you play. Tide of shadows effectiveness really pales in comparison when you've already tied up majority of his units in melee anyway. And once you've taken some toys off the table.
Try and swap the tech marine for a Librarian and try him out with vortex of doom and the sanctic shard, +2 to the cast, use 1CP to 3 dice the spell and a free reroll if you fail. You want to hit that blessed number 12. Praise the Emperor and do 6 mortal wounds, you could of dropped a tactical nuke on the bunched up tanks he had in the corner.
