    HQ: He is very expensive and joining the footslogging honour guard he won't use the jump pack. I would ditch him for a cheap librarian or jump pack chaplin. The honourguard too are expensive. compare them to 5 assault terminators and you see how costly they are. Termies also get better shooty weapons or assault termies can mix TH/SS and L-Claws.

    Troops: Good. Perhapse add PWs or PFs. If you are planning to combatsquad them then take razorbacks instead of rhinos and look at plasma cannon or lascannon for the static elements.

    Fast: With the points saved from the HQ get 5 more guys, a PF and possibly a flamer or two. Attack bikes with MMs are also a decent choice.

    Madcat has you pretty well covered, but didn't mention this - it's not legal, you only have two weapons to swap out (bolt pistol/gun, chainsword) and you've replaced them with 3 options (rblade, stormbolter, stormshield). Personally I'd drop the stormshield, and swap the stormbolter for a combi-weapon.

    I have a real dislike for stormbolters, as they cost 3 points which usually leaves you with 2 points unspendable. I'd rather pay 5 points for them! lol

    The rinos look like your trying to run Chimeltas when, as Mad Cat said, the razorbacks will give you a lot more firepower if you combat squad your marines and three men in a drop pod with the label honor guard, sounds to me like a really easy kill point for your opponent. i would think of dropping the honor guard for some assault troops to support your V-Vets

    They're not a total waste - but there are a lot better options in the codex.
