A metric ton of basilisk;
A few Baneblade (or variant);
A few valkyries for areal support.

In short a lot of pieplates and anything that can deal with stompa and squiggoth.

I would take and incredible amount of HW teams and LRBT's... but you probably don't own enough models for that.

10,000/500= how many baneblades you should take.

If you don't have that many, then just take a good list you would make at a 2500 point army and multiply it 3 times. Spend the last 2500 points on big toys and crazy stuff you'd normally never take. *cough* Deathstrike

Oh, and looooots of hellhounds. Squadrons and squadrons of hellhounds!

Oh, another case of the forgotten infantry. In all respects, vehicles are nice with their pie plates and heavy machine guns, but, I quoteth Ursuakr E. Creed, "Our tanks are mighty and our artillery is thunderous, but it is our infantry that will trample them to dust-let them come" . People are, again, afraid to use guardsmen, but they just don't know how to use them properly. If you're not good with hordes of paltry guardsmen, mount them in a chimera, you're playing mech right? Get a bunch of guardsmen inside with plasma guns of flamers or frag grenade launchers(you can switch to fire krak, though) and hordes will be blown away by your hordes! + tanks ;D

Well considering the OP wants a fully mechanized and aerial list, I didn't include troops.

A mech army means an army with all infantry in a vehicle transport. You can have an entire army with all troops in a chimera and it will still be classified as mech. just look at the Armegeddon steel legion. One lasgun isn't good, but with an ordering command and close range? that's 30 shots per squad. Also, the 40k rules state that you must always have one command and 2 troops.

Well the great thing about our lovely apoc is that you can take all those bothersome rules in 40k and throw them out the window.

I would just put a vaccum cleaner on the table and use the hose attachment to suck up troops. Easy win. Just write up a datasheet on it and it'll be legal.

Well then it really depends on whether he wants a proper apocalype style list, or just an grossly, abnnormally large army. For apocaylpse; spam veterans in chimeras, command squads, russes and hellhounds like there's no tomorrow, if it's force organisation, you're goign to just have to take 6 full platoons with chimeras for every squad.
