Purely on a fluff perspective, why aren't Ahriman and Tolbek's retinues sharing the same discipline? I know that in game, you can have them with different disciplines, but fluffily, this makes little sense that a commander's bodyguard would have a different discipline.

Also, I don't quite understand why you've used Raptora discipline. The +1 invuln doesn't offer too much to the Vets - it would be better used on a unit of Terminators, especially Cataphractii.
Again, larger units of Veterans would also make the BoP upgrade far more valuable as well, getting more use from it.

Read the history of the Charadon Crusade: The Crusade of Fury was at an end.

Holy Terra.

I didn't really think through the Vets much, I was pretty torn between Pyrae and Raptora (more attacking power). And 6+ Invuln seemed better that Hammer of Wrath. I didn't take Corvidae because a lv. 4 Diviniation psyker seemed enough. .

Also I will run the Zone Mortalis Strike Force RoW, to let those termies deep strike. I don't like using Veterans as troops because I feel like it restricts my options. I really will just use the Tags to hold objectives/tarpit, and my Psykers will be the hard hitting ones.

.. A paragon blade & a thunder hammer? Are there was me weighing up the pro's and cons of a force weapons ha. You do seem to have gone upgrade heavy.

Is the jetbike praetor on his own? I know he's tough but some bodyguards would go well.

I think terminators don't measure up to the new Sekhmet.

Holy Terra.

Yeah, I proxy'd him in a series of 1on1 matches and he was able to take down pretty much everything else with his points cost. Although that was before i made him lv. 3, so

I haven't seen the new Sekhmet rules yet, the poor peasant I am couldn't make it to Warhammer World, so im stuck waiting for it to be released.

The rules are leaked in the News and Rumours article on it, it's pretty nice.

I know nothing of 30k (actually came here to get ideas for my own 1ksons adventure), but is all your anti-tank in melee form? is that a good idea?

can neither confirm nor deny I lost track of what I've got right now.

Yes and no..

Obviously having some decent ranged anti tank is good.

But 30k has a large amount of really tough to kill tanks, Which conventional weapons bounce off, so stuff like meltabombs and chainfists help.

Firstly, leaks:
TSons https://imgur.com/a/tnSyz/
Talons https://imgur.com/a/emdin/
Wolves https://imgur.com/a/rAyQq/

Secondly,
What is the squad size on the tacticals?
If its 10, you have 48 models with a total of 56 wounds, not a lot at 2300.

I'd want to bulk up on the VTS simply to have enough bodies on the field.
With only 4 guys shooting, you wont get many, if any rending hits on the VTS.

Either bulk up the tacticals or scrap the upgrades and get some rhinos to jump onto objectives.

Consider cutting the heavy bolter squad to upgrade to sekhmet terminators, they are awesome, probably in the top five legion-specific units.

If there are points spare, add a small squad of jetbikes to guard the praetor.

Make Ahriman your warlord, his warlord trait is great imo.

Scrape together some points for a Mortis-Autocannon or Deredeo dreadnought for long range AA and to counter light vehicles.
Anyone bringing aircraft will have a field day.
