I know I'll be going against a lot of guard with plenty t8 models like Russ tanks, do you guys think I have enough tankbusting firepower in this list? Is there anything you guys would do different? I'm trying to keep the amount of new minis down as at the moment for this list all I need is the ghostkeel and riptide. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Whether or not you have enough anti-tank will come down to luck, which is not where you want to be. The extra AP on your Commander and Broadside is good, but you're fishing for 5s to wound Imperial Guard armour. You can compensate for this with volume, so the one change I would make is dropping the Ghostkeel for another Broadside. Yes the Ghostkeel brings Fusion to the table, but it's Fusion that hits on 4+. You've already decided to go with Hardened Warheads, so might as well go all-in on that plan.

I'm also not a huge fan of the Marker Drone plan without a Drone Controller somewhere. Remember that Marker Drones hit on a native 5+.

I would second the opinion that the ghostkeel isn't going to be doing enough on its own, I would also say you very light on anti tank for russ spam.

Another way to go is Railsides with magna railrifles.
Or my personal preference Riptide with the Amplified ion accelerator. Ditch marker drones as necessary for points and fill remaining points with shield drones and consider upgrading the commander to enforce armour.
