Default please nitpick at my AC list

i have organized the 7th armoured janissaries and it is worth 1500 pts (though i have a lot more vehicles if need be)
this is my basic list
HQ- leman conqueror
elite- leman vanquisher (tank ace)
troops- 2 leman russ'es (one with dozer blade), leman exterminator
fast attack- iron fist squad
3 sentinels with lascannons
one hellhound
that leaves me with 49 pts to upgrade this Company
i have in reserve - 3 basilisks, 1 griffon mortar, 2 leman russ tanks, 1 leman exterminator, 1 demolisher..
if you see anything wrong with this list pls feel free to modify or give suggestions..i appreciate any and all..i have 4 more army lists to show as soon as i organize them- mechanized grenadiers, drop troop, light infantry and my pet project and assault engineer unit (to be used in cityfights or breaching defence lines)...

I'm not sure. I've never seen tanks as "troops" before.

with the 49 points, i would buy another sentinel. have 2 groups of 2, and give them a multilaser or autocannon to deal with any swarm armies. also,i see you havent purchased anyt sponsons. why?

oh...for shaso wanax..it's a chapter approved armoured company army list..you use tanks for troop choices..as for the other question.. i forgot to put down that the leman russes except the congueror and vanquisher have side sponsoons with bolters also with lascannons on front, the vanquisher and conqueror dont have side sponsoons and have lascannons for front armament...chimera has multi laser and heavy bolter...hmmm sentinels have hunter killer missiles upgrade...the 49 pts i was wondering if you'd use it to put add on armor or make someone an ace driver..basically if you had these models how would you organize and maybe why..thanks

I agree with the sentinel teams. The other option would be to make the exterminator an Ace, or give your 5 Russes 'Evasive Driving' if you face assaulty armies, then make sure to move up to 6" each turn! You'll auto-wound each assaulter on a 4+!!!

It was said above - he's using Armoured Company (AC)... as mentioned in the title... :

You can find the rules on the Chapter Approved UK website.

sorry for being a total noob...just clarifying some things with the leman and variants since leman russes don't have the same gadgets as the tau hammerhead...i've read the rules and pls clarify if i misinterpreted it...
if i don't do any movements in the turn i can fire an ordnance weapon or the side sponsoon/ front weapon or can fire them all?
when i move oh' about 5-6 inches i can fire only one weapon system?
and when i move further than 6 , i can't fire at all...
again i apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate any answers...

you can never fire any other weapon if you fire an ordnance weapon.

As for the 49 points...have any of you advocating the fourth sentinel noticed that all three fast attack slots are occupied?

I would actually use the 49 points to upgrade the armored fist squad to a stormtrooper squad (elites, I believe)

You'd also be better off giving the tanks that have sponsons heavy bolters all around, as lascannon hull weapons don't mix well with heavy bolter sponsons. The points saved won't add up to much, but I'm sure you'd find a use for them.

For a better list overall, look into the "armored battalion" rules.
