With all that sternguard you may be better to go with Pedro and have them scoring. I think they give objective secured too.

You have way too little melta to consider taking Vulkan, he isn't really worth it for 4 combi-meltas.

I would consider podding vulkan with a melta gun command squad, then change one of the sternguard squads to half combi-melta/half flamer so you can combat squad them.

lose the other sternguard squad and this should free up some points to drop pod a tactical squad, and if you lose a scout squad you could drop an ironclad as well. Add in a drop pod assualt squad with 2 flamers to round out to 5 pods.

Stormtalon and thunderfires are good choices and will do work.

Not sure about the librarian and GK, they could do well or pretty terribly but sounds like a fun army to play
