Default [1750pts][Spectre Lance][Tournament]

One thing I'd like to point out to everyone before you read this list;
I'm more concerned about comp, then enjoying myself, then if I win, it's more of an afterfact.

I'm really happy about a couple things in this army.
1.) Not a single Assault Cannon!!
2.) I have more troops than anything else combined!!
3.) My army is nearly 70% troops!!

Now, what I plan on doing with the army is not to actually transport my units, but to use the rhinos to dictate where shooting will go, and paths of assaults.
The Librarian isn't necessarily going to be with the assault squad, he'll likely blast a couple furies following the rhinos, then eventually meet up with the assault squad/chaplain before the grand assault.

I've set the army up so I can easily do shooting or assault and I can do both relatively well.

This looks alright. I think you might be short a bit on heavy weapons at such a high point game. I'm fearful about the rhino's and razorbacks. It's not that it's a bad choice it's just you don't make your opponent choose. A mechanized list should have a threat. You should have a dreadnaught or a tank that's gonna kill him. Your opponent should go "do i kill the transport and slow the troops down, or do i kill the tank and stop the death". If i faced your list i would immidiately shoot the razorback denying you one more heavy weapon.

I know that you say your Libby isn't exactly going to be going with the assault squad. If he isn't with the assualt squad then make sure he is invisible cause it's a very tempting target to attack. If i had a choice i would take this squad:
Tactical Squad Uruk
Six Men, Meltagun
Apothecary Uruk – Powerfist
Razorback – Twin Heavy Bolters, Extra Armour, Smoke

and drop it making another assault squad. By doing this you could seperate your libby and chaplin and give them both a solid attack unit to harrass the enemy. A heavy Armored enemy may prove to be a challange for you if your dice go cold.
