1000pts Competitive List, built to face all-comers.
I have yet to play a real game of wh40k, outside of a demonstration game or two at my local store, however I have been writing/considering lists for what seems like an eternity whilst slowly assembling(read painting :/) my army.
As such I have little "real world" experience of what works and what doesn't - my knowledge is only from reading forum threads on here, so any (harsh)critique is very welcomed.
I have a friend of mine who has recently started collecting and assembling an Imperial Guard army. So I now have a new incentive to redouble my efforts and achieve 1000pts of painted marines and I want to finalise my list before I spend more of my cash/time on models I wont end up using.
My plan is to build a competitive list to face all enemies not just my friends Imperial Guard.
Please be critical and don't hold back to be polite!

The Chaplin is to ride with the 5man razor back squad, (but could perhaps also go in the Rhino, if I were to combat squad, leaving the heavy weapon behind)
I am aiming to get into close combat.. I think? Meltagun the tanks then charging with the power fist.
The LandSpeeder is a suicide deep-strike tank popper
I plan to drop the dreadnought in close range on an infantry squad after the whirlwind has had a go at weakening it, or drop to rear of tank if required.
I am unsure what I would do if I faced a similar list to myself, with most of my infantry mounted and my heavy bolters not firing if I move the full distance, I can't really shoot at transports?!
