Horrible imo, the hso might as well drop the power weapon, refractor and bolt pistol imo.Also the carapace.As for the squad id drop carapace as well and the medic+the vox caster.Instead I would simply go with a cheap standard and bare bones unit.Hide them for ld purposes.Would also imo be worth buying iron discipline.

As for the mortar squad, personally I wouldnt take them at all.Mortars just dont really cut it with 4th edition blast rules.

What is this squads purpose?Imo they are hardly a scary unit.If you want to stick to stormies id take 5/6 man squads with plasma or melta with deepstrike.Alot more effective and the unit would have a purpose.

Alternitivly if you are feeling competive throw in drop troops option, get a 5 man vet squad with 3 plasma guns or 3 meltas and deep strike them.Not the whole army just them.Not the most fluffy thing ever but effective.Much more then stormies.

Have some bad news for you here.A single apc with 12 armour wont last long, gives a target for missile launchers and autocannons while las can do the bigger tank.Tanks are best took in multiples of each kind or they make fodder.

As for the squad itself, the laspistol is fairly useless, the vox as well,the flamer is a total no-no.And the auto cannon is fairly meh, better a heavy bolter imo.

But to be honest I would drop them altogether or go full mech.

As for the chim..too many pts in a coffin.The hunter missile is a waste and the smoke launchers.Instead extra armour or nothing would be better.

Horrible tbh again.the bolt pistol and ccw are a waste on such a unit.The carapace is as well.The lascannon and flamer are total opposites and not to be used together.Imo drop them both and the frags, stick iron discipline in these boys and hide them.cheap and effective.At the moment they scream *kill us we are 82pts and only 5 men!*

Nothing too wrong with these guys though I would drop the ccw weapons for lasgun on sargents.Also squads a nade launcher for a plasma gun instead.

Also of course the voxs.

I would drop the lascannon for a heavy bolter and smoke launchers for extra armour.

Though I dont recommand this tank on its own at all, multiples or none.At the moment this tank screams for heavy at weapons and is just providing a target.

In my opinion you are missing too much infrantry and guns.Oh and not enough tanks or too many depending on your point of view.

If you got rid of all the wastage imo it would be better.Also go all infrantry or take multiple tanks.

Well hey might not have been the response you wanted...but it is one.

Well, I didn't really explain my tactics that much.

For most of the game, it's stand and shoot. The armoured Fist squad won't even be inside the chimera, unless they race to capture a objective...

People will obviously shoot at the Leman russ before the Chimera...but when the chimera blows a lot of things to high hell... :P

Also, my Company Command Squad is a counter charge unit, so armour is needed against all those evil bolters.

And stormtroopers...it's all that's in the box, and i'm not going to spend more money!

Yeah, I've done the same thing! I would take veterans(you could use some catachans and cadians for those ) I think they are better because of the heavy weapon and cheapness! I should make some proper veterans sometime...
