This comes to about 1750. The list itself is pretty boring and straight-forward, but I finally have a list that will support the fluff I made about two years ago (First Macharius High Altitude Shock Troops) for Lord Solar Macharius (who is now featured in the new codex!).
Command (9-man squad)
1 Heavy Flamer
Officer of the Fleet
Vendetta w/ Heavy Bolters
Stormtroopers (10-man squad)
5 Extra Bodies
1 Power Weapon
Ratlings (6-man, modeled w/Cadian Snipers)
Veterans (10-man squad, 4 of these)
1 Heavy Flamer
Valkyrie w/ Heavy Bolters
I just painted the first fist of the army.... only like 70 more dudes and 5 Valkyries to go. Ha.
Comments and criticisms?

Air Calv Guard: 3 - 2 - 1
Word Bearers: 23 - 9 - 4
Why spend the points on bodyguards and combat weapons? You're never going to get a good return if you keep your officer safe and out of combat.
Stormies suck, don't use them. Too expensive for too little return.
Vets are fine, just ditch the powerfist.
I find a mix of Valks and Vendettas best. The lascannons are handy, as ar the massed templates. And remember, your flyers are bought as a Fast Attack choice.

Now I love my Stormies. With my 1500 point list I went against Chaos Daemons and I had both of my stormtrooper squads take out both of my opponents beefed up Daemon Princes. So they doubled their points that game so I am very pleased with the turnout I got from them.
I do agree that the vet sergeants shouldnt have powerfists. I dont see any real good point to have them.
One question, if they are drop-troops why would they be equipped with carapace armor and hellguns (as I imagine they are quite heavy)? The point of drop troops is to be as light as possible, but I feel that stormtroopers would more likely be inserted via Chimera rather than via grav-chute due to the encumbering aspect of their equipment.
But that's just my two cents, feel free not to follow it, as the thought of stormtroopers repelling out of a Valkyrie is awesome.
