    How are the sentinal squadrons working for you? 3 AV10 vehicles in a squadron just seems like tempting fate against even S4 rapid fire...

    You could drop one sentinal and use the points for pintel heavy stubbers on the chims.

    Dunno about anything else. I'd be the guy who takes grenediers instead of mechanized if I was going to play a list like this.

    The sentinals are actually pretty good. I use them to hold objectives and to screen my army. The idea is to stay out of range of bolter fire, and force them to dedicate heavier weapons to them, because if they are using plasmas, autocannons or even heavy bolters on my sentinals, they are not shooting other targets like my infantry and chimeras.
    I have been considering replacing them however. I was kicking around getting a squad of vets with 3 melta and a plasma sarge w/ Chimera, and send the armored fist squad and the vets after tanks and other enemy hardpoints, flanked by whatever sents I have left. They will try to linkup with the elements of the storm trooper squads that are deepstriking, and with these elements squeezing the enemy, it will hopefully force them to divide their fire and allow them to survive a little longer. All of this, while under the punishment of my tank line and infantry squads.

    Think this would work? Anyone have comments or suggestions? Please keep in mind that with my doctrines I can't deep strike my vets

    In my experience you don't have to deep strike the Vets. Occasionally they can infiltrate and when they can't they soak up an obscene amount of fire because people are terrified of anything with 3 plasma guns and maybe even a heavy weapon.

    Witht he mechanized doctrine though I can't infiltrate either. I have to drive my chimera forward, screened by sentinals, and then let my 10 vets and armored fist squad attempt to break through enemy lines and link up with the remainder of the deepstriking stormtrooper squads, and hopefully have enough melta and plasma fire to break any tanks\big nasties they may encounter.
