The Stormtroopers can't take Special Equipment from doctrines. So they don't get Cameoline.

basilisk would add the vertical dimention to your game in denying hiding behind cover rather than in it.

yeah, but i think the price you pay for one is too high for what they do, the extra range is just wasted!! although i do love the models

Your lacking anti tank, get some more missile or lascannons in there, then throw in a leman russ, and another infantry platoon. Then your list will be balanced, you have plenty of anti meq with the russ and vets, you got nice solid bodies, and the one thing your list is lacking is the anti tank which you will be adding if you follow the advice above.

Is it legal to have 2 medics in your command squad?

Just a thought, your men have an atrocious leadership of 8. Upgrade the officer to a heroic senior officer and add a commissar and you will have an excellent leadership ten for you command squad, which goes well with the master vox caster. Your army will be able to hold together and fight longer with higher leadership.
