Ill post this here instead of tactics because I couldn't care less about having a competitive army.

Astral Claws Generals, what should I be adding to my army now I have a core? I like the idea of more bikes as Huron liked these but then I do need a bit more LR firepower to balance my force. I might invest in a Storm for my scouts too.

Currently I have:
Lufgt Huron
10x Tacticals
5x Scouts
10x Vanguard w/o Jump Packs
6x Bikers

More Tacticals man! Regardless of whether they're pre or post treachery, that army should have more Tactical Marines. Not from a tactical standpoint, but from the simple fact that they are the most numerous form of infantry in a Marine army, and your specialists outnumber them. I would stick another 10-man squad in there at least.

You still need 1+ Legion Auxilia
Get some armsmen
basilisks, thunderers and medusas and leman russes.......you want fluffy and "big guns never tire"

lol very well said.
on topic, i agree with Emperor's Teeth. more tacticals would also partly solve your firepower issue. using the combat squads rule you can effectively get firepower and backup for your vanguards too while getting the chance to score on an objective :) its all gravy baby

Yeah, I think the objective is Astral Claws not Tyrants Legion. I would add a terminator bodyguard and tacticals, plus a vindy or two, the whole big guns thing and all.
