Sounds like a plan!

CCS, Bodyguard x 2, Meltaguns x 2, Chimera
Straken
Marbo
PCS, Flamer x 4
Harker's Veteran Squad, Missile Launcher, Plasma gun x 3
Vet Squad, Meltaguns x 3, Chimera
Infantry Squad, Grenade Launcher x 1, Heavy Bolter x 1
Infantry Squad, Grenade Launcher x 1, Autocannon x 1
Leman Russ, Lascannon x 1

1k spot on, and legal now...I think

I have another chimera, valk/vendetta, 3 Ogryns, Nork Deddog, another Leman Russ, and a Hellhound. With the new edit it is less Mech with one less chimera. There will be a TON of Tau and Nids, not much else other than some Space Wolves.

Thanks!

well, it's not my type of list but i say this: i'd remove bodyguards in favour of two more meltaguns (better to attack than to defend when you have T3 and a 5+)
Then you could also remove the lascannon since the battlecannon firing will make the laser only snapshot...not that great for 15 pts...
Also, a valchirie could be a blessing...you could remove marbo, the lascannon and a chimera from the meltavets to give them the valkirie with some weapon addons.
Flyers will wreck face vs tyranids and will give you an awesome transport for that short ranged vets unit.
EDIT: also, you could consider modeling/converting the russ into a manticore missile launcher...a must in every ig list...

After looking at some online guides what do you guys think about this:

CCS
Straken
PCS
Harker, Missile Launcher x 1, Plasma Gun x 3
Vets, Meltaguns x 3, Chimera
Vets, Flamer x 3, Vendetta, Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Infantry Squad, Autocannon x 1
Infantry Squad
Leman Russ, Heavy Bolter

1k exactly again....

The thought would be send the chimera with the meltas out looking for something to melt. Infiltrate with Harker close to an objective to either take or defend. Send the Vendetta to knock out MC or tanks with the 3 twin linked lascannons wiping out troops with the heavy bolters. Blast away troops or MC with the Russ, probably sitting on an objective. The rest of the infantry just sits back, takes orders and fires away.

Is Straken even an option anymore? I can't think what he would add to the party other than orders and waiting on someone to drop into CC. The tournament is Sunday...

The Vendetta doesn't really need those HB sponsons does it? I mean if your strategy is to pop vehicles and you're already firing your TL lascannons it would just make them snap fire. Drop 'em like its hot and give the second Infantry squad its Autocannon back!

93rd Saphra Armored Regiment: 128-101-13
Iron Warriors Warband: Destroyed
Raven Guard 6th Company: 29-19-7
Black Templar Reclamation Destroyed
Tau Bora'kan Hunter Cadre: 14-10-2
Unnamed Adeptus Mechanicus Force: Coming Soon!

Well I went 1-2, lost 4-1 to Tau, 5-4 in a Purge the Alien game against 5 squads of Tau, and won 1-0 on a First Blood against DA. The Vendetta was not so great but I'll get the hang of it. Marbo was a bust, not arriving until turn 4 in 2 games and throwing the demo charge off the board the 3rd time. I came home and bought a Manticore off eBay We started a campaign so I'll be getting 1-2 games per week at varying points. This week I am going to hit another IG player who I hope to make an Allie of.
