Pathfinder the roll-playing game? :/

Thank you for all your answers, and know that I will keep them in mind :D
This week we would be starting the test.

Probably I'm going to go with the demonic bloodline after all. Thanks for the feedback.

Your stats seem wrong:

Human: +2 str/+2 cha
Warrior: +2 str/+2 dex
Sorc: +2 Cha
free: +2str/+2dex/+2con/+2cha

so, you should be:
Str: 16
Dex: 14
Con: 12
Int: 10
Wis: 10
Cha: 16

If you're going melee:

pick up True strike.

it's one of the best spells in the game atm (even for full casters) and it's even better for Gishes. (only 1 action, gives like a +4-5 effective to hit, which is also equally +4-5 to crit threat range, doesn't provoke, etc)

Also, I think Draconic bloodline would be much better for Gish than Imperial:

Claws are "free" scaling magic weapons (unlike magic weapon), and activating them enables Arcane striker (which should be your goto feat to activate each round)

so, from level 4 (that you gain arcane striker) and onwards, you could easily do something like:

move->claws->arcanestriker-Stirke (round 1)
move->true strike->arcanestriker-strike (round 2)
and etc

without maximized Cha i wouldn't personaly go for blasting routines, but more for buff->arcane striker routines.

If you're going ranged:

Get bow proficiency
dump Str, go for 16 Dex/18 cha/Imperial bloodline
get true strike
Routine would be more like: Blast->arcane striker bow strike.

Thanks for the advice, much apreciated.

I'm gonna take true strike, definitely. But the bloodline is more thematical than practical/mechanical for me. So, I'm visualizing the character as a chelish fallen noble, whose family have a bad reputation of practice intercourse with demons (if I take the infernal bloodline), or maybe one of his acestors was a infamous warlock from thassilonian times (if I take the imperial bloodline).

Since the action economy makes any character a potential gish, that's fine, but also means that the magus/spellblade is not gonna be a priority when the rulebook is finnally released.
There are multiple ways to make a suitable magus/spellblade, this is my attempt on bring the class to the playtest:

Ancestry: Human
Background: Warrior
Class: Sorcerer -> Bloodline: Imperial


STR 16 (+3)
CON 12 (+1)
DEX 14 (+2)
WIS 10 (0)
INT 10 (0)
CHA 14 (+2)


General Training (Ancestry Feat)
Weapon Proficiency (General Training, taken from de ancestry feat)
Quick Repair (Skill Feat)


Daze (Cantrip)
Detect Magic (Cantrip)
Electric Arc (Cantrip)
Fear (1st lvl)
Light (Cantrip)
Mage Armor (1st lvl)
Mage Weapon (1st lvl)
Shield (Cantrip)

Bloodline Power: Ancestral Surge

A smart one? XD

Yeah, but pest form is a lvl 2 spell. And also, PEST FORM?! So, i can turn into a house cat... Great :/

My first option is probably a Bard, who is more a swashbuckler and duelist than a minstrel.
My second option is probably a magus, I thought in a sorcerer with an imperial bloodline and the weapon proficiency feat (taked from the general training human feat).
