Have had to play some smaller battles recently so thought it would be worth coming up with a go-to armylist.
CCS, 3 meltas, 1 flamer, Chimera with ML/HF
Veterans, 3 meltas, Chimera with ML/HF
Veterans, 2 plasma, Chimera with ML/HF
Veterans, 3 grenade launchers, autocannon, Chimera with ML/HB
Scout Sentinal, autocannon
Scout Sentinal, Autocannon
So what do you all think?
I think the list is a good place to start.
I'm curious what the veterans with 3 GL/autocannon are doing in the Chimera... sitting on a home objective I would imagine?
You could swap the 2 plasma with 3 melta, and have all the squads filled out.
It's a solid list no doubt.
A small change I make on my smaller lists is to bring a Primaris Psyker instead of a CCS. And with a grenade launcher vet squad, you could add the Psyker to this squad and zoom them around putting out S6 shots all over the place. If you did that, I'd definitely switch the plasma to a melta squad, just for redundancy sake.
Hope this helps, good luck!

I dont find that I need Leman Russ tanks at 1k, sure they can be a good distraction butsome lower armoured vehicles will take more fire off your chimeras. Fast attack becomes the new heavy support.
This is my list as an example
Primaris (in 1k this guy wont see many hoods and puts out a sinifigant amount of firepower)
Vets 3 meltas chimera
Vets 3 grenade launchers chimera (primaris goes here)
Vets 3 plasma guns chimera
Vets 3 flamers demolitions (vendetta)
2 scout sentinels autocannons
Basically the vendettas and sentinels do most of my fighting and can even alpha strike mech armies with meltabombs. The plasma and melta vets advance on objectives and the grenade launcher vets and primaris psyker provide midfield support.
In under 1k use I find its better to go russ free and use up as much fast attack as possible. Also CCS' arent needed as those points are better spent on a chimera bourne squad that can capture objectives.
