The list looks solid overall, although you are lacking anti-tank.

With your last 54 points, try sticking in two Lascannons. Take out the infantry Heavy Bolters and give them to the Command Sections (they are easier to kill, so don't risk an expensive gun on them), and put the Lascannons in the now-weaponless squads.

I'd suggest apgrading the missile launchers up to lascannons.
Also, on the leman russ, don't mix weapons. *Because if you fire the lascannon at a tank, then you lose the heavy bolter shots because they cant hurt vehicles with more than AV12.
if you downgrade the senior officer to a junior officer, then that will give you another 15 points to spend on another squad for a platoon, with a mortar/heavy bolter.

I completely disagree. If you lose that battlecannon, then you've still got a Lascannon for tank hunting, and Heavy Bolters for anti-infantry. Trust me, as an AC commander, I know how important it is to squeeze every drop of value from your tanks.

but you will only be able to target either a tank OR infantry each turn. I see what your saying, and i agree with it, but with the extra points, you could give your tanks things like extra armour etc....
(i to am a AC commander, although you are probably a hell of a lot better than me)

Ultimately, King, you need to decide what your Tank is going to do. If it's just an Ordnance platform, take a Heavy Bolter. If it's a tank-hunter, take a Lascannon. Anti-infantry config is 3x Heavy Bolters, whilst the multi-purpose model is Lascannon and 2x Heavy Bolters, as you have it.

There it is. You are probably woundering why i put the smoke launchers up. I love smoke launchers! They are the best weapon upgrade. 3 points to stop penetrating hits for a turn!

they also stop you shooting for a turn. Useful if your planning on zipping up a flank as fast as you can, but otherwise slightly stupid in my opinion

does smoke just make you obscured, as in only stops pens on 4+, or is it a special sort of obscuration that works 100% of the time?
