    On the whole it looks good.

    Rather than the Vets on foot though you could grab a Platoon, just 25 boys, and arm all the squads with Autocannons (3 in total).Thats just 160pts That gives you 6 str7 shots compared to 2 str8 which is quite an improvement. With the 10pts left over you could grab 2 g-Launchers for the Infantry Squads.

    The other thing, you've got anti infantry pretty well covered with Multi lasers, Battle Cannons etc so there's no real need for the Griffon. Grab a Hydra instead, it's the same points but it will give you that extra hand against fellow Mech armies which you might struggle with.

    I'd go with borak's suggestion for the troops, and i'd pull the sponsons off of the tanks and spend the points on upgrades.

    Yep, drop the vet squads with Missile Launchers (crap weapon anyhow) and go with an autocannon equipped platoon.

    Vets are only really worth it in Chimeras and Valks to get the extra special weapons they can carry. A platoon makes a better firebase and objective holder.

    the Sponsons have proved to usefull all my games to be ignored so they stay but the Hydra will be used insted
    Why i used Vets and m.launchers are cuz of BS 4 so they might hit something ^_^
    But yeah a Platoon would do nicely aswell

    bring it down order works fine on autocannons aswell right?

    Bring it down affects every weapon in the target squad.

    This is my last change to the list now everything is set!
    I will use my Platoon command squad in a Chimera instead of the Company command squad.
    Why?
    to have the Company command squad close to my L.Russ tanks for 'bring it down' order and with an autocannon for some damage dealing from thier cover.
    and have the Inf. squad as backup with autocannons together with the Company command squad.

    With this i will give a battle report on how it worked out.
    where do i post battle reports?
