I'm trying to make an airborn 500 pts list, but I don't know how feasible it is. What do you guys think of something like this:
Vet Squad A - Melta, GL
Vet Squad B - Melta, GL
Valkyrie - Multiple rocket pods
500 pts even. Aircrafts keep moving and harassing from a distance, drop vets as needed or get them to objective sit/contest at the end.
Switch the SWs so that you have 2 meltaguns in one squad and 2 GLs in the other. Then put the GL squad in the vendetta and the meltagun squad in the valyrie so you wont lose as much AT to one shot.
The commissar lord isn't very good, and at this pt level you really dont need him. A Primaris Psyker will do you much better, his lightning S matches that of krak grenades so he can make them deadly against infantry and light vehicles.

you stole my list!!! hahahahaha this is almost identical to mine, id take out the missile pods as ive found that two hellstrikes firing on the first turn can disable mech armies and blow apart large squads id also give the veteran squads 3 meltas next and swap the commie lord for a primaris pysker. This list will absolutely destroy!!!
Thanks for the advice guys, that actually sounds playable. (Also, sorry for any unintended list thievery). I think I'll stick with the missile pods though, I can't commit to one-use weapons. So:
Primaris Psyker and 10 vets in a Vendetta, with 10 vets with 3 melta's in a Valkyrie with Missile Pods. Looks good to me at the 500 pts level. Thanks again.
surely you want to keep the missile pods in to stop horde armies. At 500pts, 3x twin linked lascannons is going to disable any mech the enemy has. I am not even sure you need as much AT as you have at the mo, perhaps swap a melta for a plasma cannon, which itself will be more effective at taking out light vehicles, meltas are more for your Av 14 tanks which are almost non-existant in 500pts
