Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey there again everyone. I've been trying out lots of the new SM Codex stuff and been gettting beaten a lot lately. Being a bit fustrated, I've tried to revert back to some basics and use the only new thing that has worked for me so far really well: sternguard.
Please advise any improvments on this army as I am losing faith in my boys.
HQ - Pedro Kantor - 175
Troops - Tactical Squad (9+S) Flamer, Serg w/Storm bolter & Power weapon, Rhino - 230
Tactical Squad (9+S) Flamer, Serg w/Storm bolter & Power weapon, Rhino - 230

Sternguard Squad (9+S) 2 Combi-melta, 2 Lascannon, serg w/power weapon, Razorback - 345

Thanks for looking and for your time.
I dig the list but I wonder if you limited light armor will be shot to hell quickly without something a bit tougher around to draw fire away.

why a storm bolter and a power weapon on the sarge? if you intend to shoot with your 10 man squads (which by the gods you should be), you won't be charging and the need for an assault weapon on the sarge is non present. just seems like a waste of points unless you've got the models converted.
same on the sternguard. why not put lascannons in your tactical squads and keep them in the rzorbacks and use the sternguard special ammunition to its fullest in rhinos?
Which heavy are you putting in your tac squads? missile launchers?
Normally I'm not a fan of putting heavy weapons with sternguard but I've been warming up to the idea as their like a better devastator unit that's scoring plus their special ammo allows them to shoot 30" with their bolters, still not going to be used much but it's there.
And the power weapon would be better with a pistol, if you upgrade it to a powerfist though the storm bolter works better (since it won't get an extra attack from the pistol anyway) and personally I would drop the scout's plasma pistol and use it to upgrade the two rhino's into two razorbacks and combat the tac's as well to make full use of your free heavy weapon and give the enemy more bodies at home to shoot instead of just the sternguard.
And I think with 4 razor backs and a landspeeder it'll present some targets but will still fall short against armies notorious for anti tank (e.g. guard) so if you want to get more more of a bullet shield to draw fire away from the razorbacks then if you drop both storm bolters and the plasma you can get a auto/hb predator
