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.
