First, you have to much points tied up in HQ. I would drop one of the special characters. I like that you have Lysander with Sterngaurd. I never thought of that. BUt you need more troops to take objectives. And personally, i don't like DP. They are one hit wonders, cause the next turn whatever comes out is usually dead. BUt if you are ganna do DP you need more support for them. And take Preds that Devestators. Preds are cheaper and harder to kill.

That all makes sense. So maybe drop Calgar and his squad and toss in a dreadnought and drop pod? and what sort of predator would you recommend?

I would not even take drop pods. Lysander couldn't stay with the Sterngaurd if they use it. But ive seen an Iron Clad in DP do damage though, so that might work.

But auto/las preds are the best way to go. You get 2 LC and 2 auto shots so they have the same shots as devastators but are cheaper and harder to kill.

But for your troops I would give them a PW, RL, flamer, las/plas razorback and then combat squad them. And at these points id suggest three scoring units. Maybe some scouts to hold your home objective.

i don't believe you can fit lysander in the dp with 10 sternz0z (Lysander is a terminator so he'll take up 2 spaces correct?) I would either outfit the stenz with half combi melta, half combi flamer, or all/most combi melta. i'm soon to start running heavy flamers in my sternguard squads.

and yea if you have to drop the second bodyguard, a third tac would be useful. you may consider mounting those tac guys into razorbacks with tllc for the added fire support. your landraider and dp guys will need the help.
