Recently I thought of an army list and wondered how it would fair?
Tactical squad (10) - flamer; lascannon; combi-flamer, powerfist
Tactical squad (10) - meltagun; lascannon; combi-melta, powerfist; Rhino
Landspeeders (2) - Typhoon (2)
Attack bike (2) - Multimelta (2)
Crusader - Multimelta
Cassius and the termis go together in one of the landraiders. The other will have a combat squad with the flamer. The combat squad with the melta will go in the rhino. The 2 remaining halves with lascannon will stay back and use their lascannon. The scouts are a point filler, not too sure what to use the remaining pts. I was hoping to throw them into the landraider in turn 4 or 5 to capture objective.
Landspeeders and bikes will go tank hunting. The cannon will try to take out hordes and stuff.
Exactly 1750pts, any comments for how this would fair?
If you know you're going to be combat squadding - i.e. you've a heavy weapon in there - you might as well pay 5 extra points and get a razorback instead of a Rhino. I'm dubious as to using a LR for something as mundane as transporting Tactical Marines, I'd drop on for a Razorback and use the other 200 points on something like a Vindicator and Predator combo.
Extra points can do on Camo-Cloaks for the scouts, and maybe a Heavy Bolter too (and give them sniper rifles, rather than the standard boltguns)
What kind of opponents are you expecting to face against?
I would definitely consider getting Razorbacks for both Tactical squads since you'll be breaking them both up into combat squads. Get the Scouts sniper rifles and a heavy bolter if you haven't already.
You would probably have to drop a Land raider to get the second Razorback, so I would consider getting a AC/HB sponson Predator with some of the remaining points. With all three heavy slots taken you could potentially get another Land speeder and/or Attack bike, or beef up your Terminator squad since you do have a LR Crusader.
Btw, are you using the Land speeders as a squadron?
Let us know how it fares.

if i've said it once of said it a 1000 times if you take termies and want a raider designate the land raider to them it keeps your heavy slot free for something more fun.
