Default 1500pts Balanced [Iron Hands]

Okies, looking to build up my Iron Hands from 1500pts to 2000pts

This is a variation of my balanced list to make it a bit more Iron Hands-ish.

My 1500pts List:

HQ


Techmarine w/ Servo Harness, Bionics, Purity Seals - 241pts
2 Combat Servitors
2 Gun Servitors (Heavy Bolters)

Elites

2 Venerable Dreadnoughts - 280pts
Assualt Cannons
Dreadnoght CCW's
Extra Armour
Furious Charge

Troops

5 Scouts - 90pts
(All with Sniper Rifles)

4 Scouts - 70pts
1 w/ Heavy Bolter

Tactical squad - 190 points
Veteran w/ Power fist and Bolt pistol
1 Marine w/ Meltagun
8 Marines w/ Bolters

Rhino - 58 points
Extra armour
Smoke Launchers

Tactical squad - 110 points
1 Marine w/ Missile launcher
1 Marine w/ Plasma gun
4 Marines w/ Bolters

Tactical squad - 110 points
1 Marine w/ Missile launcher
1 Marine w/ Plasma gun
4 Marines w/ Bolters

Fast Attack

Assault squad - 216 points
Veteran w/ Power fist and Bolt pistol
5 Marines w/ Bolt pistols and ccw's
2 Marines w/ Plasma pistols and ccw's
All have Frags and Jump packs

Heavy Support

Predator Annihilator - 135 points
TL-Lascannon turret
Heavy Bolter sponsons
Extra armour

Total 1500 points

-------------------------------------------------------------

So how do I build this up to 2000pts in your opinion? I was thinking of adding some terminators and possibly some other heavy support or even a bike squad?

Also in curiousity, can a techmarine with servo-harness use a rhino as a transport as i could change this list because I'd prefer for the tech and 4 combat servitors to be in a rhino rather than this walking unit.

Okies, that's a mistake should be 10. It's fixed now.

Can anyone actually help?

I'd suggest more tanks. With only 4 vehicles on the board, and only one with a strong frontal armor, it's likely all your vehicles will be dead by turn 3 against an army with good anti-tank.

Another Predator or two would give your opponents more targets to worry about. A squad of terminators would would also help give your opponents more hard targets for their heavy weapons. Adding two Predators and a terminator squad is more than 500 points, so you'll probably need to drop something. I'd suggest the heavy bolter scout squad, as they don't have much purpose other than their heavy bolter.
