I like this, I like this alot.

Is it okay with your friends to have the +5 pts in there?

But any way onto the army.
The command looks good. But im guessing that the ML is supported by that guardsmen with a lasgun? because the ML will need to be manned by 2 men.

The storm troops are nice. Only i dont like 2 plasmas in a squad, maybe a melta here?. This is for anti-tank/skimmer use and plus the plasma has a tendancy to blow up.

Troop platoon looks fine, only thing is the missile launcher in the command section. Loose this and exchange it for a sniper rifle and youve capped your points total to 750.
other then this, no probs

Now the fists.
I really dont think the ML in here is nessesary. It hinders your movment or shooting depending on what happens that turn and id tend to lean towards a second special weapon for armoured fist squads.

Overall the army looks good, will work well against 5-6+ armour saves and swarm armies. Your armoured fist chimera will punch anything with a somewhat good success rate.
Hope this helps and good luck...........

i like everything but the ML in the armored fist squad. that could slow the squad down a bit more than you would like. also, i ask that you consider using vetrans instead of the storm troopers, because they are a little cheaper, and get an extra special weapon. you would lose the armor save, but the SW is worth it (to me at least). glad to see that someone other than myself uses medics.

I'd keep the missile launcher in the Armoured Fist. It lets them form a firebase that can take on anything, and the Chimera lends supporting fire, or gets them out of trouble when the enemy start to close!

As for the rest of the list... well, just a little alteration: give all your squad sergeants Lasguns. The army clearly isn't meant for close-quarter engagements, so that extra lasgun shot will be more valuable than an extra melee attack.

also, id reid the lisslile launcher and replace it with an autocannon. the best infantry-heavy weapon there is i find you can take out the light vehicles that the tau and eldar employ, whiel being able to kill (for example) any crisis suits, or any nasty eldar aspect warriorsthat pop up

hmm, i (though its less tactical) prefer to give my sergeants LP+CCW just for the look and makes them very distinguishing
