Default 1500p Fluffy Crimson Fists Drop Pod army

So I was looking at the stats for Pedro Kantor and decided that I was a little bored of playing Salamanders. I decided that I might as well try to play a fluffy Crimson Fists army as it might suit my playstyle better.

Chapter Master Pedro Kantor 175p
Honour Guard x4 (2x Relic Blade, Drop Pod) 215p
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PW, Drop Pod) 225p
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PW, Drop Pod) 225p
Sternguard Veteran x10 (6x Combi-Melta, PW, Drop Pod) 330p
Sternguard Veteran x10 (6x Combi-Melta, PW, Drop Pod) 330p

Both Sternguard and Pedro drop down fist turn, hopefully popping important tanks and transports. One of the Sternguard would combat squad to do the popping, and the other Sternguard would rapid-fire into whatever infantry I can, hopefully bypassing their armor save and wiping them out. Pedro Kantor would be rolling with the Honour Guard to provide an invulnerable save and getting the best value from his +1 attack. They won't be that survivable but whatever squad they hit will definitely feel it. Tactical Squads will drop down wherever they're needed, probably on objectives. How do you guys think this would work out? Any C&C would be appreciated.

Well I think its a great list.
I'm personally a fan of having units replicated like this in an army, it looks a lot like a list that I would make and field.

You might have a problems facing Horde armies though, with all your special weapons going into anti tank.

Your game plan seems pretty good, and with the possibility of 8 Scoring units objectivs should be to hard to cover, and in Kill points you can keep it down on only 6Kps, which is always good.

I've playtested this list twice and I love it. First one was against Tau that resulted in a win for me. Game was Annihilation and I won by 4 or 5 Kill points. Second was against Eldar, Capture and Control, and was a tie. IF that one had been Annihilation though, I would have won with 8 Kill Points to 2. And the comment against anti-horde, Sternguard are anti-horde. They're got no cover rounds, AP5 poisoned rounds, AP4 rounds, and AP3 rounds. Delivered through droppods, with 20 of those shots, is enough to severly decimate a horde. And if they assault next turn, the Sternguard will be striking back with 3 attacks per due to Pedro. I love them =)

I playCrimson fists a lot as well, Pedro is the man. One thing that has to be remembered though is you can either make your sternguard scoreing or you can combat squad them, you can not do both. Pedro exchanges the combat tatics rule for stubborn and hold the line.

Combat Tactics and Combat Squads are 2 entirely different rules (Pedro only replaces Combat Tactics), so you can combat squad your scoring Sternguard!

Wow, you are 100% correct guess that is one rule i have been misguided on, thanks for the info.

This army actually has 11 kill points minimum, due to the drop pods, 5 kill points to the five drop pods, 2 to the two sternguard, 2 to the two tactical marines, 1 to the honour guard, and 1 for Pedro kantor.
