Hopfully hard hitting and eveything can start off the table if needed.
The Furiosos need extra armor and magna-grapples to be effective. They'll never run down a vehicle without the grapple and nothing is more pathetic than a stunned Furioso. The best way to get the points for those upgrades, I think, is to lose the Drop Pods. Those Storm Ravens can do the delivery work just fine.
Your model count is dangerously low. I sort of see where you're going with Dante but you'd be just as well off using normal Assault Squads as the Sanguinary Guard--what you lose in power weapons, you gain in numbers and effectiveness against hordes and Monstrous Creatures. Alternatively, consider losing one of the Furiosos and running Dante with a full, normal Assault squad. This would give you a third scoring unit that can either DoA, wait in reserves to hold a home objective or hit & run through the lines of an infantry-heavy opponent.
Sanguinary Guard are more troubleshooters than vanguard. It doesn't take long for attrition to reap its toll from any 5-man unit and that wonderful artificer armor/Feel No Pain pairing does nothing to protect from power/low AP weapons, which most opponents will be relying on anyway.

Furiosos with blood talons are pretty good anti-horde.... they twist ork heads off like bottle caps...
