    Need Help Cutting 1750pt Mech Guard down to 1500pts for TOS?

    I知 going to Throne Of Skulls next month and I知 having trouble cutting down my 1750pt list to 1500 as all the units do their jobs very well. So I知 hoping you guys will be able to help me to decide what to drop. Anyway here痴 my 1750pt list

    HQ
    112 Command Squad:
    Bolt Pistol, 3x Melta Guns and Officer Of The Fleet
    55 Chimera: Heavy Flamer
    (The Officer Of The Fleet helps to deal with Deep Strikers & Outflankers that can cause a lot of trouble for the exposed 10 armour)

    TROOPS
    100 Veteran Squad:
    3 Meltaguns
    55 Chimera: Heavy Flamer

    100 Veteran Squad:
    3 Meltaguns
    55 Chimera: Heavy Flamer

    100 Veteran Squad: 3 Meltaguns
    55 Chimera: Heavy Flamer

    115 Veteran Squad: 3 Plasmaguns
    55 Chimera: Heavy Flamer
    (These are the only units I think I can drop, if I ditch 2 of the melta vets & the commander's bolt pistol I can take marbo)

    FAST ATTACK
    130 Vendetta

    140 Vendetta:
    Heavy Bolters

    135 Banewolf: Heavy Flamer & Smoke Launchers
    (Vendettas out of the question and the Banewolf has killed tons of hordes and marines so not too keen to ditch it)

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    230 - Leman Russ Executioner:
    Plasma Cannon Sponsons and Heavy Flamer

    160 Manticore: Heavy Flamer

    150 2 Hydras
    (The leman Russ is a obvious choice and is a late edition to the army cause I wasn稚 keen on expensive unit but then I fielded one at a tournament and realised the long range heavy infantry killers is what the army needs, plus it draws fire away from the AV12 army. The Manticore has good and bad days so I guess thats an option? The Hydras like the Vendettas are out of the question.)

    So what do you guys suggest I ditch to slim the army down to 1500pts?

    I would drop a meltavet squad and the Russ. that would leave you with 135 points to play with, enough for a vet squad with grenade launchers and forward sentries. Alternatively you could get a bassie just to further annoy your opponent.

    To be honest the best option would probably be to drop the manticore and a squad of meltavets then I'd have 65pts left to spend.
    With that I can either buy Marbo or find another 10pts (probably the vendetta heavy bolters) and afford a Griffon Mortar to fulfil the role of long range anti-horde?

    That would also be a viable way to go. I'm not a fan of staionary tanks, especially one that costs 230 points. You might benefit from finding a way to optimize that Russ and use the excess on upgrades for other units.
