really the only thing you need for a legal army is another command squad for the platoon(with chimera).

then you'll have a command squad, a platoon with 3 squads(and command), and an armored fist squad.

only thing is you won't be able to use all your heavy support choices unfortunalty.

are those heavy weapon platoons 3 squads of 3, plus command?

if so you'll need 8 more chimera to use both. the one bad thing about the mechanized doctrine is that is says all guard infantry must take a chimera.

you can then have legally command squad(with chimera), infantry platoon(command and 3 squads all mounted in chimera), an armored fist squad, 2 hellhounds, and the 3 of your heavy support(russes, bassies, heavy weapon platoons). that should take a rather large number of your points right there.

actually, you can have a single command squad and all armored fist like squads if you take grenadiers and mechanized doctrines. This allows essentially what are storm trooper squads as FOC infantry slots, thus illiminating the platoon command squad necessity. If you want to go that way of course...

So you'd have a legal army now, except you can't take the heavy squads without a command squad for a platoon. So you can disperse the heavies into your armored fist squads, or you can take heavy weapons platoon doctrine buy another command and place them all in there, or buy a command for your platoon and give them the weapons squads (bear in mind this last option would also require another 2 squads of infantry that were *not* grenadiers to fulfil the platoon requirement of a minimum of 2 line squads.

Personally, I'd just disperse the heavies into the squads, take grenadier and mechanized and skip the "fire magnet" heavy support and AT squads altogether.

Veteran Sergeant with Bolter
Plasmagun
Lascannon

Transport: Chimera
Turret: Multi-laser

Extra Armor

Squad 2 (192 points)
Veteran Sergeant with Bolter
Plasmagun
Lascannon

Transport: Chimera
Turret: Multi-laser
Hull-mounted: Heavy Bolter
Extra Armor

2nd Infantry Platoon
Command Squad (157 points)
Junior Officer with Bolter
2 x Grenade Launcher
1 x Heavy Bolter

Transport: Chimera
Turret: Multi-laser
Hull-mounted: Heavy Bolter
Extra Armor

Squad 1 (192 points)
Veteran Sergeant with Bolter
Plasmagun

The Chimeras will be used to block line of sight. You may want to read the various tacticas on vehicles on various armies like the Tau and the Inquisition. Also the Chimera will be your heavy weapons platform. EAT MULTI-LASERS!!! I hope this list helps

good list Zenai.

one thing though DJ. You can drop the command squad from the second platoon put one of the squads with the first platoon and have an armored fist squad.

if you do that you can use the points to give your men the steel legion upgrades like xeno-fighters and if you drop one of the mechanized squads you could throw in some storm troopers, ratlings, or conscripts.

I'm assuming you are refering to actual steel legion, not a steel legion style formation

Meh, I just take the necessary doctrine to get some of the restricted troops and alternative regimental organizations.

That list just use Mechanized Doctrine.

Make your own regiment, your own world.

Furthermore, you want to outnumber your opponent. "I have 12 armored vehicles on the table and 55 models on the table. And what do you have?" :P
