I've got 2x 5 man squads with 2x plasma guns and plasma pistol, a tempestor prime and a command squad with two volley guns. Might buy another box to make a second tempestor and another command squad (maybe go all out and go 4x plasma).

Yep, new fangled stormtrooper models that are actually really cool to paint. I like all the options on the sprues, and even the old style beret heads too! I haven't gone too heavy with Scion spam, having seen how GW have adjusted razorwing flocks recently, I can forsee a price increase to scions and/or their plasma guns so I'm keeping to only a few squads rather than the current competitive build ofabout 8 of them.

Just finished two Astropaths, 15 points per model for a dirt cheap psyker that can do smite and 1+ cover to the target.

Yeah the old metal models are still quite nice, although lacked a bit of detail on the face one it was painted and washed sadly. Haven't played them yet but apparently they're very good. Still the same toughness 3 mook, but is a cheap source of smite and one or two cool psychic powers, so a lot of people seem to use 2-3 to accompany infantry squads or conscripts and keep the enemy honest. For a small price it increases the damage output of an infantry squad or conscript block, being able to throw out a few mortal wounds.

Hobby time is proving hard to come by with a newborn around but I've managed to finally finish a few commissars that I've had around on my desk.
