Lysander is a nice choice for an HQ, however, something overlooked is his Bolter Drill Special Rule. Yes he is a good CC character but getting re-rolled 'to hit' shots is nice for bolt weapons. So you could invest in a Heavy Bolter Dev squad or a Sternguard squad with lysander in it to boost their shots, and on the plus side he can boost their CC effectiveness as well.

The Tactical squads seemed to be geared anti-mech or anti-MC, you could keep one as is, but possibly swap one squad out for a Plasma Gun or Flamer and Missile Laucher, the PG can deal with light armour etc, the Flamer anti-infantry, and the ML is a good allrounder, able to target both infantry and armour

Most people will say to not mix Dev squad weapons as it causes confusion to the role of the unit. Yours is ok with 2x ML you can deal with infantry and arnour, however the lascannons can be good or bad. if the army you oppose ends up being mech, you should be fine, as the LCs will get them fine, but if its a horde army, having 2x shots at Str 9, AP 2, your only (if at all) killing 2 models, so i'd opt for either 4x ML or 4x HBs stuck with Lysander

Can you clarify if the ASM is a normal Assault squad or a Vanguard squad? the wargear suggest Vanguard

Termies...depends, if you opt for ranged Lysander, replace with Sternguard, or invest the points in more troops etc, otherwise these are fine.

In general, try and establish what each unit may be doing, and try and aim for an all-comers list, as you said it's a random army your up against, so it could be anything, any general ideas to what armies are used in your area?

Ok I'm just not sure about that loadout you have for the ASM, as its only the sergeant who has the access to the PW, PF and Shields

P.S. 10 Sternguard Vets, getting off Land Raider and rapid firing with Bolter Drill and special ammunition... Well, probably not the way to use them, but hell, that would be scary.
Such is the might of Lysander. If you move the LRC forward and fire which ever weapons you can at a certain target, then have 10 Sternguard + Lysander disembark, and as above, open fire with Rapid Fire, re-rolling 'to hits' (Bolter Drill), and then adding if you used Special Ammunition :shok:

That's a seriously hard hitting set-up, good for SC/IC hunting :victory:
