Now that the codex is in hand, and I have had time to read it, I have revised the list. I had a Manticore in the list, before but I had to return that to its owner (I'll be ordering one as soon as they are available again).

What do you think?

As a followup, I decided to try the list at an actual tournament.

It is apparently good enough to win a tournament.

Doctrine? Honestly... I used the Stratagems, I used the orders that my Tempestor Primes had, and the Psyker powers. I don't think I used a Doctrine at all, come to think of it... I dont have the codex in front of me but i remember thinking that because it was an "imperium" army it was a little confusing on what ones I even COULD use. So i just skipped it.

Explain in detail, Brother Oseas, that I might learn at your feet.

It can't use the Tempestus doctrine. To use Tempestus your army must only use Tempestus units. But it can use any of the other ones.
