Well, I have done the unthinkable....I have bought the vostroyan platoon, AND a demolisher...in one go.
The good news is, that besides the odd addition, I have officially closed the growth of my SM, Chaos, witch hunters, and orks, and dwarfs.
This means that atm, Vostroyans are my main army.
Now, I have:
-4 Squads of Vostroyans (with the standard sergeant, 2 w/heavy bolters. 1 w/lascannon, 1 w/mortar), (one flamer, one melta-gun, two plasmaguns).
-4 Vostroyan snipers
-command set (officer, vox guy, medic, standard bearer, and grenade launcher guy.)
-3 spare officers (one w/powerfist and laspistol, one w/power weapon and plasma pistol, and one with CC weapon (or power weapon) and bolt pistol).
-A spare guy w/grenade launcher and a spare guy with a flamer.
-Commendeered chimera (curtousy of my witch hunters )
Well, I was just wondering what advise in the way of tactics & additions you all could offer.
My theme is a heavy AdMech army (but still vos) that is a great cityfighting army.
My Doctrine points are:
-Resticted troops ratlings
-resticted troops techpriest enginseers
-resticted troops speacil weapons squads
-close order drill
I'll post some pics later...

Right im not sure if this should actually be in the army lists section, youd need to make an army list to make this easier to see what you need to add.
So fluff wise MEchy type guard. Well chimeras everywhere and copious use of multilasers laser style weaponary plasma and melta (avoid low tech flamers grenade launchers projectiles really)
from what you haev split it into
1 grenade launcher
2 heavy bolter teams
1 mortar team
1 lascannon team
thatll give around the following
main HQ: officer w/boltpistol powersword, mortar 2 men
platoon HQ: Jo powerfist, 2 flamers 2 men
squad 1: heavy bolter, plasma
squad 2: heavy bolter, grenade launcher
squad w/ plasma vet sarge w/plas pistol ccw.
then the tank
thats a basic setup to work form it isnt great but gets you legal
1 lascannon team
this means you need enough men to make a squad with the lascannon in so another 6 men,
The melta would best be used in a vet squad, id say buy a chimera 2 more meltas then bolt pistol powersword vet sarge and 1 man
snipers arent that good but id get 3 men to get the special weapons team so you have them.
That would use up the rest of the figures you have.
1 vet sarge (officer pack) with bolt pistol powersword
to make your army fluffy
instead of ratlings make some mechy type sniper servitor things they would look so good and fight in (plus fit the profile the men models look a little too buff for the profile)
get a techpriest and some servitors for him, your choice really.
Other than that write a list and post it up in the list area so it can be critiqued and your sorted good luck
hope that helps
Don't use the mortar in an infantry squad. Get 2 more if you like, and use a mortar support squad. Get another lascannon and put it in the squad to fill the gap. Pair plasma guns with lascannons, and grenade launchers with heavy bolters. Put the flamer in the command squad with plasma/sword Lieutenant, and use it as a short range assault weapon. Flamers are never really too useful, but even less so if you put them with a squad that is long-ranged (Guard w/ heavy bolter) that you really don't want in melee.
P.S. Please don't paint them red. Please. We have enough red Vossies, we don't need any more. Mine are Camo Green with DA Green drybrushed, and Scorched Brown for armor with orange highlights to make rust. You might try blue or something.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
And here is my Demolisher:
Also, I don't have an exact list, but I was kinda thinking of doing this:
Two squads w/heavy bolters and grenade launchers (and plain sergeants)
One Armoured fist squad w/lascannon and nothing else
HQ: w/da boss, vox, medic, standard bearer, and meltagunner
(plasma squad of death>>)platoon command: w/ plasma-pistol & power sword guy, two plamsa gunners, and a medic
a special weapons squad w/3 sniper rifles
support weapons platoon (HEavy support): w/one mortar
support weapons platoon command: w/powerfist leader, 2 flamers, and guardsmen
Thats about how I will organize my army.
And this is my army sofar:
