    How is it even mech... ish? It has no chimeras, and so isn't mechanised in any way.

    Look at some other peoples lists they have posted up, and what people have told them. It would take me a long time to point out what to change in this list and I'm sure you could read what I and other people have written on other peoples army list threads much more quickly and it will help you to get a wide opinion on what everyone thinks about the best combos and units for IG.

    "Mech" generally refers to an all-tank/Valk/Sentinel force, where the infantry squads (usually veterans) are all mounted up in Chimeras.

    As an example, this is my current 1500 pt. Mech IG list:

    HQ
    145 Company Command Squad w/4 x Melta, Chimera

    Troops
    155 Veteran Squad w/3 x Melta, Chimera
    155 Veteran Squad w/3 x Melta, Chimera
    155 Veteran Squad w/3 x Melta, Chimera
    170 Veteran Squad w/3 x Plasma, Chimera

    Fast Attack
    130 Vendetta Gunship
    130 Vendetta Gunship
    145 Hellhound w/Hull Multi-Melta

    Heavy Support
    165 Leman Russ Demolisher w/Hull Heavy Flamer
    150 Leman Russ Battle Tank w/Hull Heavy Flamer

    As you can see, I don't put any infantry models on the table at the start of the game. You'll only see them if I lose a transport, or if I decide to move 12" and dump them out in front of you for a close-range melta salvo.

    Other variations are "Mixed" or "Hybrid" lists where maybe half the infantry are mounted and supported by Russes, Hellhounds, etc. Yours is an almost all-infantry, or "Foot" list.

    Hope this helps.

    ok that kind of helps only problem is that's similar to the tank heavy lists i see most people use except for the vendettas (out of curiosity how'd you go about making them?) what i'm trying to aim for is less chimeras and more Russ' and hellhound(variants) while having infantry either holding home objectives and giving cover fire if necessary or advancing behind a line of tanks.... and suggestions on next purchases and stuff and i hope that helps in anyway

    I made my Vendettas by ordering the conversion kit from Forge World.

    I'm not sure why you're not seeing more Valks/Vendettas. They're a solid choice.

    The Multi-Melta on the Hellhound is useful, not so much in the sense that it kills things, but as an intimidation tool. Where it works wonders.
