Icon 750 pts BA army for Battle Brothers

Will partecipate in a Battle Brothers tourney at the end of the month. The other half of the army is a Deathwing force with Belial.

My list will be (based on models i own and have painted):

HQ: librarian with divination. 100 pts
Elite: sanguinary priest with jump pack. 75 pts
Troops: assault squad, 2 x melta guns, infernus pistol. 225 pts
Troops: tactical squad, melta gun, missile launcher. 175 pts
Fast attack: 5 x vanguard veterans, power fist, jump packs. 175 pts

Tacticals are sitting on objective on our side of the table with librarian with divination to give em rerolls since they are the only shooty unit in my list. VV and sang priest will deep strike on the enemy side of the board contesting objectives, assault squad will split in two combat squad: one with meltas and infernus pistol will hopefully aproach asap enemy heavy armor, while the other will remain in support of the tacticals.

Any advice please? Thanks a lot.

You split your force a bit too much I think: it really depends on the other list you'll be fighting with.

As for this, specifically, VV are pretty much horrible, unfortunately. It's a great idea, but they are too expensive by far for their points: what do they have that RAS can't? An extra attack? For 50 points for 5 models? Not really worth it. The IP in the RAS is also not great.

I would go with this (models permitting)

1x Libby (JP) - 125

10x RAS (PW, x2 flamers, MB) - 220

10x RAS (PF, x2 MG) - 235

10x Tac. (flamer, ML)- 170

Or switch the MB to a MG in the Tac. This list has the benefit of lots of tough scoring troops, good anti-tank and anti-horde, and good synergy. Tac. can hold backward objectives, RAS can go forward and kill everything short of termis (which it sounds like your BB will be able to handle just fine).

GLHF mate, if you want more advice I am more than willing. Or if you want to keep more of your original list, let me know.

It's great advice, thanks. Actually i have enuff models painted to add another full assault squad, so i will switch the vv to a ras like you wrote above.
Just a pair of questions out of curiosity: you removed the sanguinary priest altogether, do you think that after 6th ed changes he's not worth his points anymore? What do you think of vanguard veterans ability to charge out of deep strike thanks to heroic intervention + reduced scatter thanks to doa?

Personally, I love priests. I have three of them, and I take them in most lists - but at 750 and under it's too much of a point sink. Now, you could drop the Tac. and take yourself a priest as well as maybe some MM attack bikes or something, and depending on your partners list that may actually be a good idea.
For the Vanguards, their ability is interesting a gimicky, but if your friend is playing death knights you don't really need it. You still could, if you wanted, but I wouldn't personally. They are overcosted for what they do.
