The point of this army is to have 1/2 of the army on reserve, and the army on the board will be a shooty/survive army. Then on the later turns, the melee portion of the army arrives via outflank or deepstrike (ala lictors). The carni's are meant to be flexible. They support the shooty team in the beginning, but still have stuff to switch over to the melee mode later in the fight.

First off warriors can only have one heavy. I recommend The BS . Also with the BS drop the senses. Give the GS Retinue flesh hooks. It is pretty embarrassing Having guardsmen off GS. Drop allot of the fluff on the Fexes. If they are shooty you don't need h2h upgraddes (that is 2 d's for a double dose of that pimping) that should free up a considerable amount of points. Maybe drop a lictor too. GS are soft targets even in cover. I have found that giving the enemy a variety of targets to shoot at is good (I love my guants for this reason. They see 30-40 of um on the board they don't want that many in combat so they shoot them. I have a saying, "No, please anything but my guants."
