Army-
I still have 30 points to spend on something not sure what to get thought…. I am brand new to the 40k world but I fell in love with the Forge World models for the IG! Not sure if I would win any games but my mentality is to rush for any objectives while laying down a steady fire with the Chimera’s speeding along. Veteran squad & Vendetta goes tank/transport/heavy weapon squad hunting. The elites deep strike in trying to kill of any elites that the other player may have. The griffin lays down a nice stream of mortars on top of whatever troops. Lastly the Company Command will head to one objective with 10 man squad & the Platoon Command will do the same with the other 10 man squad. From my understandings of theoretical battles looking at the rule books I know this is a small amount of troops to hold out objectives successfully. Yet I do think the Chimera’s should provide a nice fire base to hopefully kill a decent amount of troops before my squads have to disembark. That being said this is a 1000 pt game to learn how to improve my army. Criticism welcomed. Thank you.
Models-
I want to use some forge world models to add some flavor to my army. Not to mention I want each element of my army to be from a different world. The reason why I want to do this is to represent the last few survivors in a bloody campaign. I was thinking of having the Veteran squad by Elysian models. The Infantry platoon would be from the Death Korps. The Storm troopers would be the old school Storm troop models (not a fan of the new ones). Lastly the Company Command squad would be from the Cadian shock troops. All models transports would be colored to represent their home world. The Griffin not sure what color to paint….

scrap 1 chimera and take another squad to make it a 20 man squad
this seems far more affective for keeping your 'home objective'

Personally I would drop the melta on the stormies and and add it to the vet squad, so your losing a lasgun shot a turn, not a hellgun shot.
Also in 1000pts the company command squad can get pricey, and doesnt have many units to give orders to, go for a bare lord commissar (ld 10 to units within 6) or even better a primaris psyker who's shooting attack is capable of killing more models in a turn than his quite humble points cost.

Well I decided to knock down my points 750 to feel out my army.

This is my ideal strategy: The Primaris Psyker cloaks the Vendetta with nightshroud. Veteran squad & Vendetta goes tank/transport/heavy weapon squad hunting. Elites deep strike in trying to kill off any elites/hq squads that the other player may have. The griffin lays down a nice stream of mortars on top of troop squads. Lastly the Platoon Command will spearhead the two combined infantry squads in the Chimera ideally obscuring line of sight. From my understandings of theoretical battles looking at the rule books I know this is a small amount of troops to hold out objectives successfully. That being said this is a 750 pt game to learn how to improve my army. Criticism welcomed. Thank you.

There is three problems with this:

1)This strategy wont work against SM or CSM.

2) Your squads dont have vox casters (so your platoon commander orders cant be rerolled when you make them).

3) Storm troopers work well as HQ/Elite killers when they are in full squad.
