Next week i've got the last round of my groups escalation league, which will be 1850 points. Basically if i can manage to win all 3 of my 1850 games ill win the tourney and win... bragging rights, yay! lol. Anyway, most of my opponents will be various flavours of space marines, space wolves, the green guys (black angels or something?) and 2 vanilla chapters. All of these guys play mostly mechanized armies, so this is the list i plan to bring to counter lots of vehicles and 2+/3+ saves. but i could also be fighting orks, tau, bugs, eldar, or another mech guard army. Also, we use a list of customized missions we found on the internet somewhere that for the most part minimize the penalty of having alot of killpoints on the table, and all have objectives of some point, so i feel my guard may be at an advantage.
CCS - 90
Standard, LC, vox
(babysits infantry platoon)
3x Vets - 3x(155)
3 Meltas, Chimera w/ ML, HF
(Drives forward, pop tanks, general ownage)
2x Vets - 2x(190 )
3 Plasma, LC, Chimera w/ ML, HB
(pillbox chimeras, last minute mid range objective grabbing, lots of ap2, anti deep strikers)
Platoon - 395
PCS - 105
4 flamers, chimera w/ ML, HF
(anti-horde to accompany meltavets)
4x inf squads - 2x(70 ) + 2x(75)
4 MLs, 4 GLs, 2 voxes
(2 squads of 20, camp home objective, twin link krak launchers at transports)
2x LRBT - 2x(170 )
Hull HB, sponson HBs
(sit back and blast away whatever needs to die)
LR demolisher - 180
(stays mobile, always drving forward, mostly shoots at tanks)
Everythings got a specific role to fill, and i think ive got all my bases covered. lots of troops for objective control, lots of vehicle killing (mech marines, mech tau, mech eldar, and mech guard opponents). only think i can think of to change would be to swap the voxes for extra armour for the demolisher to keep it moving. Any C&C is welcomed , wish me luck!

Looks good, i'd drop the lascannon on the company command squad and pick up some sponsonds on the demolisher if art all possible. The CCS will already be a high priority target and everytime your opponent kills someone it's someone important. If you lose the lascannon it will help them survive much longer.
If you can't get any sponsons for the demolisher then you should keep the lascannon.
Nice list, it's hard to critisize (spelling )

I like your list, and think your blend of Plasmas and Meltas is wiser than the Melta heavy lists than some folk play.
