It is definitely designed for 'Nids .. or orks, IG (with no armour) etc..
Even MEQs would be hard pushed if you got the DG AoF timed right.
But come up against Tanks/ Dreads, you need a smattering of meltas (? replace one special with them and add a couple of HF).
Mobility is the next point, a couple of rhinos for the SoB.
Asianavatar makes good points, and your tweaks should help.
The Dominions are a big gamble, but to get the most of them (for MEQ) with all flamer combo is to add an Imagifer to help with DG. Even more costly then.
A few Power Weapons on the VSS (swap for Plasma pistols) is the most basic point raised.
SB in the celestians is really a waste, they are likely to be in the thick of things so templates are probably best (1 flamer at least, with melta). Also think about using that "Hatred", I know there is no need for the "Faith" but upgrade to VSS for a power weapon; an eviscerator even!
Unfortunately I think it is the Repentia that could be sacrificed for these bits.
