Much the same as the 2000 pt list.
The Vanguard are super hard hitting assualt troops now, with 8 Thunderhammers and 2 LC. All have storm sheilds. Check out the Power Unit: Vanguard Assualt Squad Hammer and Anvil load out for details on them.

The land speeder storm can swoop scouts in at the last moment onto an objective, or get them to an assualt where they can tip the balance.
