I'd swap the Assault Cannons on the Razorbacks for Heavy Flamers and drop the Vindicator for literally anything else that costs the same points.  Assault Cannons at BS4+ are garbage getting a pathetic amount of wounds through on MEQ targets.  Stormravens are fine because they're BS3+ on the move and that's worth the points, but not on mobile Razorbacks.  Vindicators are just worthless in the current Edition.  Maybe go 'neiner-neiner' to the vanilla players by including a Rifleman Dread they have to jump through hoops to get now.

Count the Power Fist as a Hammer in the DC squad and I'd call it good enough for the table.

Thanks a lot for the Input!

Whoopsie, i actually left the Vindicator in there! Yea, replacing it with a Rifleman ocurred to me as well. It even leaves some points for another DC guy with Axe. The PowerFist thingy was because of model, counting it as a hammer is alright!

I took the Assault Cannon Razorbacks mostly for their extra Range, but let's swap!
If going for Flamerbacks, would you swap the Tac Marines inside to Meltaguns ok keep alle the flamers?

List redone:
Any more Changes you'd make?

Nine drops at 2000 points is pretty compact. This edition has been pretty good at creating a smart disincentive for MSU! On that topic, is nine drops few enough to give you the first turn against most 2000 point lists out there? It certainly does against mine.
