Vets on foot w/o Carapace are bolter and flamer bait.

The Valkyrie variant is of questionable utility give the available options in the FA slot.

This particular executioner is a boondoggle of Congressional proportions. Far too many points in one 3 hull point package with the added "bonus" of being able to glance itself on overheats.
*I would recommend dropping to HB Sponsons at minimum, possibly going further and drop Pask*

You could drop your valkyrie for camo cloaks on your foot veteran squads that don't have it or add some scout sentinels with auto cannons.

Only 2 squads of veterans are on foot behind the Aegis Line. 2 are in Chimeras and 2 are in the gunships.
I don't really see the problem with plasma sponsons I take them all the time and I've played many times with no overheats. I really don't understand why people don't take them. Its really not that bad of a chance of getting killed. The reason I take Pask besides the better BS. I'll be able to glance AV14 vehicles to death.

I had not considered the Lord Commissar to be a solid HQ for Vet lists, as I typically go with the primaris as a cheap HQ. Then again, I generally run mech lists.

The overheats are a secondary concern on Plasma Cannon sponsons (though still a factor) The primary concern is cost. MM sponsons are cheaper and serve the AT function better, in my opinion.

if it hasnt already been said, pask is pretty underwhelming on a tank like the executioner. he is practically built for the vanquisher, and does quite well in stuff like the punisher(if it ever sees the table) or the exterminator(same deal) the template weapons dont make much use of his +1 bs. pask vanquisher is fantastic these days for knocking out enemy heavy armor. got a pretty decent chance to blow stuff up in 1 shot. i only wish we had an AP1 gun to put him in.
