Not bad, scout snipers are not bad. However another option is to mix up the types of Scouts, dropping both scout sniper squads to 5 men, maybe with a missile launcher in each. With the other 10 you could make them into bolter squads with a heavy bolter in each, for a healthy mix of options, the missile launchers add a little anti-tank punch. Scout snipers are fairly pricey at 18pts a piece, using a few bolter scout squads drops the points a bit and frees them up for a few more bodies.

I think you've got your totals off, 5 scouts with sniper rifles is 90, if you change one sniper to a rocket launcher, then you have 95. If you add another scout on, with a rocket launcher, your at 113.

In which case you have another 10 points to spend. I would try just buffing numbers. Six scouts will tend to survive a while longer than five. And your chaplain is already well enough equipped.

Or you could drop pod in a squad, just so you have something to grab objectives with.

Here is my suggestion:
Hq:Master of Sanctity Kinri 130points
-bike

Troops:Squad Vermillion, 6 scouts 113points
-5 sniper rifles
-1 rocket launcher

Troops: Squad Zeus, 6 scouts 113points
-5 sniper rifles
-1 rocket launcher

Troops:5 scouts w/ bolters 70points
-heavy bolter
Troops: 5 scouts w/ bolters 70points
-heavy bolter

TOTAL:496
Note: You can change Kinri's bike to a jump pack for less points and the ability to deepstrike. Using those points you can tack on another scout to one of your squads.

*Insert generic ending to post*

Are you sure?

13X5=65 65
20
5X4=20 +10
----------
10X1=10 95

(Mods I can remove this if needed.)
