Hi getting back into the game after several years out.

Trying to put together a a list with the stuff I have and want to know if it'll just get tabled!

The idea is to create a gun line with the veterans and sentinels shooting everything from the back of the board and then get the storm troopers to come in late game and secure objectives.

If anything gets too close use the punisher cannons with the officer of the fleets re-roll ability to mow it down.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I don't want to say you'll get tabled, but you're probably fighting an uphill battle. You have very low durability. Sentinels are not hard to kill, neither are Scions or Veterans. I would consider running regular Infantry squads instead of the Veterans for more bodies. I love Vendettas, but the reality is that they're not very good in 8th edition. They cost way too many points and want to be moving, which means they hit on 5+. If Forgeworld updated their datasheet with the Roving Gunship rule that Valkyries get, I would give them a second look, but Forgeworld hasn't done that. You'd be better off running Taurox Primes TBH. Or to maintain the airborne feel, replace them with Valkyries, which shores up the points for more Scion Meltaguns. I'm not saying you can't win, but it'll require some finesse to protect your assets while eliminating your opponents.

Thanks for the advice, been having a think about what I could make with a little ingenuity and as little money as possible:

More value for money with the Valkyries and then I added a space marine detachment for a hard to kill element. Idea would be for the scouts to sit back and hold objectives whilst the glass canon of the Scions destroy as much as possible before they get wiped off the board any more advice would be fantastic.

If you wanna take Dreadnoughts for heavy fire support, I'd go with Mortis Contemptors... Forgeworld rules, but you can probably just kitbash a regular contemptor to make them.

For 168 points, you get 2 twin lascannons, on a BS2 platform w/ 10 wounds and a 5+ invulnerable save. Much more durable than standard dreadnoughts, and much more firepower.

Can you use them in a regular Space Marine army, not seeing an option for them on battlescribe?

Yea, Battlescribe is weird with Forgeworld stuff.

You need to go to edit forces, click on your battalion, then add a detachment of FW Astartes to it, and you can choose FW models. it's where things like the Leviathan and Deredeo live.

Hmm.. I'd probably also try to wiggle in another SM HQ, you've already got everything for a SM Battalion except that, and that's 5 more CP. I'd probably drop Lascannons off the Valkyries for it, and maybe trim some of the options on the scout squads. If you can fit a Smash Captain in there (Jump Pack, TH/SS) he'd work great.... you could hold him back by your Dreadnoughts to give them re-rolls of 1's to hit so you basically guarantee they always hit and then use him as a counter-charge unit if something gets too close, or you could deep strike him in among the Scions so they screen for him as he tries to get in there and beat the hell out of things. It would synergize with your list pretty well IMO.
