Welcome to Librarium Online!
Here is a list i compiled just for fun.
Lots of bodies, lots of vehicles, tons of meltas. Maybe it can even be competitive!

the units will embark in chimeras as the following:
chimera a: 1 with 2
chimera b: 5 and 6
chimera c: 7 and 12
chimera d: 15 and 16
there is some optimization to be done (like, you can save 1 melta from chimera b , up to 3 from chim a and c. like, 70 points) but you have a lot of meltas rolling ahead in those chimmies, which can target 2 different enemy units because you have 2 different units shooting from inside, if needed.
Yeah you have bs3 compared to the veterans bs4, but you have much more meltas rolling forward.
4 leman russes can soak up a decent lot of damage to lower pressure from the transports.
the 3 20 men blobs can
-sit on home objective shooting at enemy transports coming in with autocannons, or
-drop the lasguns and autocannons, grab 10 laspistols (2 cc attacks instead of one) and stay on bubblewrap duty
-get assault weapons (GL or flamers) and roll on footslogging
I made this list up in a couple of minutes, but i think that the "quantity over quantity" can be competitive in our Guard... in your face, veterans!
@IronWeevil : please notice that there are no voxes in this list. Kisses
I played a list like this not to long ago except I had 3 Medusa's as my heavy support I used 2 Company Command Squads with meltas in Chimeras and a Armored Sentinel with Plasma Cannon.
The only bad thing about the list would be that you have to put at least 2 of the tanks in a squadron making them weaker defensively and if you didn't go first in the game and your Special Weapons Squads got shot at before getting in their Chimeras. I'd say your list is good
This is illegal. A transport can only carry one unit at a time, barring specific exceptions that don't apply to the Chimera.you have a lot of meltas rolling ahead in those chimmies, which can target 2 different enemy units because you have 2 different units shooting from inside, if needed.This is also illegal. Standard infantry do not carry laspistols. Only command squads have the pistol/CC option, and that at the cost of carrying any other weapon at all. Consider using Straken.drop the lasguns and autocannons, grab 10 laspistols (2 cc attacks instead of one)
Retool this list to have SWS in skimmers and blobs with support (Commissars, Straken/Creed or at least a CCS standard). Fielding lots of tiny squads with short-ranged weapons, bad leadership and no transportation isn't going to work. Your men need either endurance or mobility.

oh well the 2 units per transport thing was my only concern, since i wasnt sure on that. thank you for pointing that out for me
A single PCS with meltas in a chimera is a very viable and economic replacement for chimelta vets. you can further increase the shooty nastiness by adding a PP to the officer or by adding a primaris psyker to the unit.
Praise the Emperor and pass the promethium!
