Hey there all! I posted a list about a month about that was supposed to be my mech IG list of doom. Unfortunately other things have prevented me from getting the funds to get the hydras that I originally wanted for the list so I've had to make some tweeks to it. So here it is and any brutal commentary is welcome! :p

Vostroyan 77th First Born Regiment

Hq-
Co command squad
Grenaide Launcher x3
Officer of the fleet
Chimera w/multi laser & heavy flamer
-170pts

Troops
-----------
Veteran squad
Melta
Plasma x2
Chimera w/ml & hf
-165pts

Veteran squad
Melta
Plasma x2
Chimera w/ml & hf
-165pts

Veteran squad

-100pts

Veteran squad
Melta x3
-100pts

Fast Attack
----------------
Valkyrie w/ ml and mmp
-130pts

Vendetta w/3 TLLC
-130pts

2 Banewolfs (squad) w/hull multi melta,smoke
-300pts

Heavy support
-------------------
Leman Russ Demolisher w/hull las cannon and sponson plasma cannons
-220pts

Leman Russ Demolished w/hull las cannon and sponson plasma cannons
-220pts

Leman Russ Exterminator w/3 Heavy Bolters
-170pts

-1,850

The conditions I have are that I want to keep it pure mech, I can only add maybe one more Chimera, the specials are about all I have to work with as far as melta and plasmas go (converted alot of my flamers into meltas cuz GW forgot to make a Vostroyan melta I guess lol). Other than that I'm pretty flexible! Keep in mind I'm taking it to a GT in about a week and a half so its ment to be a hard take all comers list.

Fire Away!
Thanks!

I'd drop the plasma guns on the demolishers, and try a devil dog and hellhound combo - pop armour with dog burn those inside :D

Helping the competition eh? Screw it, my IG army isn't done and I want to see them do well.

I'd definitely go melta over plasma on your Troop units, it's cheaper, more effective against armor and you don't really get much use for plasma anyway.

I'd go 2 Vendettas since you need to bust armor from range.

GLs are kinda meh, wastes your BS4 I think. Meltas here too.

Demolishers just need a heavy flamer in the hull, you want them mobile.

Exterminators are an overpriced Hydra, sad to say. If you wanted to have fun, add Pask for a boat load of S8 and S6 shots to threaten transports. I'd prefer an Eradicator though, to nuke bad guys in cover.

Leftover points can go towards an allied Inquisitor with Mystics (buy a cheapo Chimera for one of the Vendy squads and toss them inside.
