    Sorry, but I can't see this working well..

    You've overloaded your troops a bit.. The sonic blaster and doom siren are designed for totally different situations and having them both will inevitably mean that one gets underused. Also, and bear this is very much a personal opinion thing, Sonic Blasters are way too expensive to equip an entire squad with. If you think about it, sure you have a lot of firepower but they're no tougher than normal marines and, unlike normal marines who will usually have a lot of their firepower wrapped up in a heavy or special weapon, these guys are going to lose effectiveness quickly with each casualty they take. Finally, losing the +1 attack for having two weapons is a waste of the noise marine's superior initiative, which is best served decimating enemies in close combat before they can react.

    If you want a ranged squad, I would personally give it a blastmaster instead of all those sonic blasters, but I'm not even sure that's worth it. Doom siren, power sword and nothing else seems the way to go in this edition. A rhino also wouldn't go amiss.

    Also, the familiar on the sorcerer seems redundant as he only has one psychic power. remember WYSIWYG only works one way, you can model whatever you like onto your models and you don't have to take them in the rules, it's only things you take and don't model which are a problem.

    Finally, meltabombs are no replacement for ranged anti-tank or even power fists, especially on footsloggers. They can sometimes surprise the enemy, but they need to be able to get there fast in order to do that. Faced with footslogging meltabombs, the average tank will just be able to drive away, let alone those Eldar skimmers.
