So whats the concensus? Is it cheesy? I know a lot of people frown on bringing Leman Russ's and other heavy stuff at such small point levels.
The local gaming store has a 500pt league and I wanted to bring one, but I don't wanna come in there on my first night and look like a cheesy git.

Yeah, I'd say no problem. It's a cheap middle-weight tank. I'd be a little surprised if you took any other heavy support or armour, though.
I can easily imagine a marine patrol with a couple of squads and a predator roaming around.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
if this was 4th ed, i would have told you to bring a few lr tornadoes, but since it's 5th...sure. for weapons support, a destructor actually looks like the best marine option around at 500.
A Russ at 500 is just cruel... "OK, here's my first Battle Cannon shot... BOOM! There goes 1/3 of your entire force."
Not cool. Not to mention the AV14 bit.
A Predator isn't nearly as bad (unless you're shooting at Orks in the open or something, in which case he really ought to be hiding better), and it's easier to kill... Still pushing it just a bit, though.
If I were to take Armour at 500, I'd probably go for a Razorback or two, especially with their new weapons loadouts - not as tough (or expensive!!) as a Pred, and only slightly less killy! (maybe more killy, in some cases!)
I don't think it's too OTT unless you beard-out the rest as well. i.e. maybe leave the devastator squad at home
Two predators will be less than 1/5 of your force pts. Definitely worth the price, cheap heavy weapons.
