AC and GL
x2 flamers and demo charge.
Platoon stays on home objective, I know the sws is frowned upon but it's been a game winner for me the only two times i've used. It serves as a defensive Demo charge while marbo is my offensive one. Both have been working great for me lately.
At this point level i use more smaller tanks so i didn't include a russ for the sake of more chimeras and banewolfs.
platoons are always handy for home objective keeping.
any help would be appreciated
I'll add my comments in a rather stylish blue colour.
Some dakka would be handy i think. 2 Autocannons wont cut it against transorts and the Meltas will have to go towards them. Which is what the opponent wants you to do in the first place. Give the PCS an Autocannon to add to the dakka. Hydras are cheap and a nasty addition to support a Gunline.
The SWS is useful but I'd save it until ou reach 1500pts so you can get them a transport. Use these saved points to get a Hydra for some Long reaching dakka.

Swap a banewolf for a vendetta and put the SWS in it. this makes the vendetta a scoring unit and it can prowl around in your lines at slow speed firing 3 TL lascannon per turn.
When the enemy get too close it can move 12", fire one lascannon and deploy the SWS for a glorious shooting phase in which the enemy, SWS and the skimmer all have a chance of achieving a stikky end.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
Yeah I just played some nids last night and I think i'm replacing the flamers on the PCS with an auto cannon.
I'd add the extra melta and GL but I removed them to make some room for marbo.
As for the sws they just sit and wait with the demo charge; as the games i've been playing lately have dealt with DS units that deep strike right next to my home objective trying to contest it and the fire power put out with my squads is never enough to rid of them, but with the demo charge it's another story. My banewolfs and chimeras seem to be too far to help out since they are causing havoc on the other side of the board, with auto cannon fire support.
So with that said what do you think about mad cat's suggestion lord borak? that'd really take out most of me anti-meq power.
And mad cat that was a good suggestion, only i feel my anti tankin needs are filled already and my opponent usally comes to me. I shall experiment with it.
Sounds good to me. I just think 1 Vlak/Vendetta is just going to be to much of a target. They're easy to see so easy to take down. Plus without anything scarier in your list like a Demolisher to draw the attention away it's going to get alot of guns aimed in it's dirrection.
I'd save the Vendetta till you reach 1500pts so you can take a pair of them and something like a Russ to draw the heat off them. It's all personal opinion though. I've never used a Guard flyer in my life as it just feels 'wrong'.
Yes Nova. When then troops are in a transport the transport will become a scoring unit.
