4 Grenade Launcher
3x melta guns
2 heavy bolters
Infantry squads hold the line, popping open transports and gunning down enemy infantry assisted by CCS whilst veterans either hunt enemy big stuff or launch assault on enemy held objectives with the aid of the demolition charge and melta guns to clear them.
I think this could be quite an effective list, however I am considering swapping an infantry squad for marbo and perhaps the CCS for a primaris psyker seeing as they’ll be issuing so few orders a turn and the lascannon won’t be missed that much in the battle line.
For 500pts a Lascannon might be a bit over kill. Most people wont be able to afford heavy armour. the most you might be up against is some Rhino's and falcon esq vehicles. Save yourself some points and grab an Autocannon.
Platoon looks fine. The plasma gun in the 3rd squad seems a bit weird though, just take a G-Launcher and save some more poins here too. I think you're right about swapping a squad out for something else. At the moment you only have one Chimera and thats going to be one hell of a Target, especially when your opponent realises whats inside of it. so consider another chimera or maybe Hydra or what have you.
You can always find the points for another chimera and give the PCS 4 Melta guns and have them accompany the Vets.
Vets. As i said one Chimera is one big tempting target so getting another tank or getting these guys some friends would be a giid idea.
Chimera. Why 2 Heavy Bolters? Aren't these guys going to be on the move? Grab the Multilaser and the H-flamer
You could swap out the Lascannon, plasma gun and Demolitions for Marbo.
He is fun, and can cause a big mess at 500 points
I would certainly recommend exchanging hull heavy bolter to flamer, multilaser or heavy bolter is personal preference.
I always take multilaser as AP4 is not worth the loss in S in my opinion, especially against MEQs.
This is very close to the 500 point list I ran and it did pretty well for itself.
Orders can really help, they will not win the game for you, but they can turn the tide with a few extra wounds/saves at the right time.

and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
borak - where will i find the points for another chimera? i shall exchange the plasma gun squad for marbo, il be swapping the lascannon out for an autocannon giving me extra firepower in my battle-line but as for getting an extra chimera i really can't find the points, if i got an extra one it would definetly go to the CCS to gibve them extra protection
Well, you've got alot of stuff which you probably wont need in 500pts. Lascannons and Meltabombs are quite overkill for the stuff you're opponents will bring to the table.
Drop the Lascannon in the CCS to an Autocannon - 10pts
Drop the Demolitions -30pts
Drop the Plasma gun in the Infantry squad to a G-Launcher -10pts
Drop a G-Launcher in the PCS -5pts
Thats your 55pts.
done that, which squad should i give it to? i'm thinking an infantry squad and removing the autocannon or the PCS because i need the CCS's heavy weapon and higher bs i will not be able to fire the autocannon from a chimera.... any sugestions?
