I've got about two weeks to refine this list, so any help would be excellent.

Chimera w/Multi-laser, Heavy Bolter, smoke

HQ TOTAL: 227

TROOPS:

1st Platoon
Lieutenant Dion Ferrance
JO w/Storm Bolter, Iron Discipline
3 Guardsmen w/Meltaguns
1 Vox w/Lasgun

FAST ATTACK TOTAL: 165


HEAVY SUPPORT:

Tank 177 “Might of the Emperor”
Leman Russ w/All Heavy Bolters, Extra Armor

Tank 265 “Here Comes Trouble”
Leman Russ w/All Heavy Bolters, Extra Armor

Demolisher 199 “Goodnight Irene”
Leman Russ Demolisher w/All Heavy Bolters, Extra Armor, Smoke

HEAVY SUPPORT TOTAL: 488

GRAND TOTAL: 1998

Infantry: 55

Armor: 3 Sentinels, 3 Leman Russ pattern tanks, 7 Chimera transports

Heavy Weapons: 3 Lascannons, 7 Multi-Lasers, 16 Heavy Bolters

Special Weapons: 3 Grenade Launchers, 3 Storm Bolters, 4 Plasma guns, 6 Meltaguns


Okay so the basic plan here is to swamp my opponents' anti-tank abilities (thanks to Diggums for providing some inspiration here). Either he can shoot at my Leman Russes and risk getting a whole lot of plasma packing infantry in his face, or he can shoot at my chimeras and sentinels eat a bunch of pie plates. OR I guess he can try and split his fire and take some of both. The Close Order Drill doctrine is taken more for the boost in initiative than the leadership, since I'll be using vox. Though I guess if all else fails, forming up without vox isn't too bad. I put Iron Discipline on the JO's because after charging in and doing close up anti-armor/anti-command squad stuff, I'll probably use the vox trooper as a meatshield and try to keep the meltas shooting. Carapace was to add a little survivability since I'm not fielding a whole lot of Infantry for this list.

In any case, if all goes well I should have multiple scoring units on the table with the ability to scoot around and pick up objectives, and with the amount of anti-infantry firepower I'm fielding, my opponent shouldn't. My only slight concern is that I don't have a whole lot of anti-armor here. I was thinking about putting a melta in a squad from each platoon to spread out the anti-tank hurt, but hopefully the independant sentinels can get through relatively unnoticed what with all the tanks and transports running around.

Any comments would be repped and massively appreciated as this will be my first Rouge Trader Tournament with a mechanized list.

Could you let me know how you did in the RTT. I was considering something close to this list. I have a ton of Steel Legion painted up, and this list fits the theme of my army pretty well. Thanks,

Joe
