    500pts competitive hybrid list, need help with last few points!!!

    I will be entering a 500 points tournament soon and I need some help tweaking my list!

    At the moment the list is:

    CCS: 125
    2 melta guns
    chimera: Hull heavy flamer and multi laser

    Veterans: 155
    3 melta guns
    chimera: Hull heavy flamer and multi laser

    PCS: 45pts
    Grenade launcher and Auto cannon

    IS: 65pts
    Grenade launcher and Auto cannon

    IS: 65pts
    Grenade launcher and Auto cannon

    This leaves me with 45 points left, i tried using an infantry Commisar with power sword and blob the platoon but it was a waste of points as my guys were never gonna win in close combat!

    I have played 2 practice games, one vs orks and one vs blood angels, both were a draw. my offensive units (CCS and Veterans in chimeras) performed really well in both games, either taking objectives or light armor hunting with meltas. very reliable units!

    The problem i found was that the infantry platoon got butchered in close combat each time and it didn't seem to pump out enough fire power to stop the enemy from reaching it (too many orks and too tough blood angels). Like i said before i tried a commisar with power weapon and blobing the squads but it didn't really help ):

    I would really like to keep the infantry platoon as it does allow me to sit on an objective or tow near my deployment zone and also prive some long range fire power when needed, i just need to know how to make them more survivable, esp in close combat
    !
    Please comment on my list, rip it apart if you want! i won't mind i'm going into this to win!

    Doing a platoon list at 500 is hard, they really need CCS orders to shine. If your platoon is getting assaulted a lot, swap out the GL for flamers, the extra hits will depress the attackers a bit more, before they get to grips with you. The Commissar will help with making orders stick and keep the blob in place. I'd also suggest dropping the meltas in the CCS for grenade launchers The extra range will be helpful as will the extra shots.

    It's less comfortable vs AV 13+, but it's nearly impossible to get more than one such vehicle into a 500 point list and meet the 1 HQ and two troop requirement.

    Grenade Launchers are assault 1 and have a 24 in range. That means you will get to move 6 and shoot 24 with 4 shots at str 6. This will pair nicely with your multilaser and help keep your opponents at arms length. Str 6 is a magic number as it woulds MEQs on 2s .
