Well first off you need to give the engineseer a Chimera Transport. I'm glad to see, however, that you gave him only tech servitors. Gun and Combat sevitors you need only to fill a specific role. In a mix, they aren't very good at any job.

You also need to give the 116 pt. storm trooper squad a Chimera as well.

Right on with the docrines, though. Iron Discipline and Close order Drill are perfect for a mech list.

I don't see any more problems except the heavy weapons. Mortars are a bad choice alone, as they won't do much against most of the commonly played armies, like marines. You'll be lucky to actually cause a casualty there...

And drop the missile launcher on the vets, instead give them an autocannon. It's got more shots, and it's much better at fire support, and almost as good at tank killing. Do the same with the infantry command platoon.

Hope that helps.

It says in the codex only Infantry models need a transport, and the list of Infantry models doesn't include Enginseers or Storm Troopers. I just decided to skip their transports just to save points for my third Leman Russ.

ma gawd!

You are so right! Only guard infantry have to take transports. I misread the codex :-[. Sorry.

That is just stupid... I mean nice eye on your part.. but what use is an enginseer that can't get to the tanks that need him.. I am quite sure that is just an oversight...
