- Orders aren't that important to your flamer-only Infantry squads; I'd remove all those voxes from them to save on points.
- Infantry Platoon Sgts can't have Power Fists, but considering that you only charged yourself 10 points for it I assume you meant "Power Sword".
- Platoon command doesn't need a Medi-pack. Waste of 30 points. Use those points to give them more Plasma Guns instead (including replacing the lone sniper rifle).
- A Heavy Weapons Squad has to pay for EACH weapon that they upgrade, so a squad with 3 Heavy Bolters would be 75 points, not 65. Also, for the same cost you could have 3 Autocannons instead, which are better in every way, so take those in favor of Heavy Bolters.
- On your first Vet squad, drop the missile launcher and give them 3 special weapons instead, especially if they're going to be riding in a Valkyrie. I also highly recommend that you give both Vet Squads something better than a single Grenade Launcher. Three meltaguns a squad is a much better use for those units.
- If you're bringing a Lascannon on your Valkyrie, then don't bother to upgrade it with MRPs or Heavy Bolters, as again any time you're firing the Lascannon, you're wasting the other weapons, and vice versa. Either drop the Lascannon down to a Multilaser or drop the MRPs and Bolters for the standard Missile loadout.
- Don't take both a Devil Dog and a Hellhound together in the same vehicle squadron. They're intended to kill different kinds of units, and can't target separate units, so whenever you fire one you'll be wasting the other one. Either make them both Devil Dogs or both Hellhounds.
- Leman Russ Eradicators are horrible for how much they cost and don't do anything that several other units in the codex can't already do better, for less points. Just bring a normal Leman Russ instead, or find the points to bring it as ANY OTHER VARIANT (because Eradicator is the worst one).
- You REALLY don't need to be wasting points buying HK Missiles for your Leman Russes. Use those points to help fund the Melta Guns in your Vet Squads.

I think you can also save a few points by dropping the enclosed compartment and HK missile from the Basilisk -- You cant fire it any turn you shoot the ordinance (to my knowledge)

And I dont think you need/want the Master of Ordinance in with Straken as you can't shoot him when you move, and Straken wants to charge whenever possible.

Correct me if I'm wrong but can you bring a vox in only 1 of the 3 infantry squads and then merge them together and get its benefit anyway? If so why not do that and keep the bonus to orders.
