So after a few games with my army, I decided that the direction I was going and the style I favor makes it more favorable to pursue a theme rather than go for balance. Before I had a firebase and a bunch of quick moving, hard hitting troops.
Rather than this balance, I feel that it is advantageous to hit hard and fast. Basically my Termies will likely wait in Deep Strike, and add support/contest a quarter to draw something off, the Rhinos will rush forward and dump their potent cargo in advantageous positions to shred the enemy lines and the Lord and Raptors will rush in anywhere they need to be, most likely striking first with basic troops and hopefully killing them.

Should be 1750, correct if not.
Hopefully with all the reduntant, quick moving tank hunting, I'll be able to take on MEQs and vehicles with pretty much everyone. Plus the numbers will help with GEQs, especially the Raptors.
Tell me what you think.
Nice, I like the blitz krieg idea...
However skimmers will pose quite a problem, don't they always? I find that PF are not verry reliable AT as you usually need either 4+ or maybe more commonly 6+ to hit, with four attacks... So maybe you should squeeze in an AC or Plasmagun here and there?

Tanks in general will be a problem for you as the only mobile tank busting you have is in the hands of the raptors and you have no ranged AT at all. Sure you have a lot of bodies but against armies with any sort of ranged fire power it will be like walking into a meat grinder.
