It was more a curiosity, but since you ask...

I've been toying with the numbers in your list, and if you dropped the Shield Eternal down to a mere Storm Shield you would have 230 points to spend on a dieseled Honour Guard instead of the RAS. 195 if you don't include the Drop Pod cost. Even a 5 man Honour Guard with five Storm Shields is only 150 (155 if you drop a SS vet for a Apothecary for that glorious FnP). Lower model count, but way more survivable. Garnish with Power Weapons as necessary. Assault squads fold easy in combat against a real CC oriented unit.

By no means a necessary change, really just something I kinda want to do with that new Vanguard box.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
