Default 500 Point Guard list

Hey all.

I need a critique on this 500pt Guard list I am playing for a tourney.

CCS
Commander w Boltgun
Grenade Launcher x2
Lascannon HWT

Vet Squad
Sgt w Bolt Pistol
3 Meltaguns
Chimera (normal loadout)
Heavy Stubber

Vet Squad
3 Plasma Guns
Lascannon HWT

Hydra Flak Tank
Heavy Stubber
Camo Netting

My only hesitation is the Flak Tanks performance. Many people I play with are trying to convince me it won't hold up or will underwhelm. I always have good luck with it, as long as the Armor it faces stays below 12, which other than Land Raiders I can't think of anything that would fit in a 500pt list that packs Armor 13 or 14. I also tend to knock down a lot of infantry with it. I had a list that supported a Vendetta, but it was the only vehicle besides a Armored Sentinel w Autocannon. If I add the Vendetta back in, I lose the Chimera and the Hydra.
I guess my thought was more shots, and that two lascannons and 3 meltaguns should hold the anti-armor slots and wouldn't need the high profile Vendetta. I also normally don't take camo netting since its expensive, but my thoughts there was to get the Hydra into cover, and position the CCS and Vet Squad w the Plasma Guns/Lascannon HWT near it, but outside of 6" of it. That way the two squads could provide support for it, and I could still issue the Bring It Down order to either squad. I was going to either use the Meltagun Vets in the Chimera to pop incoming armor to soften the targets for the other two squads, or to go after other armored targets. What are my fellow Heretics thoughts?

Right, 25 guys and 10 of them don't have amour plating? thaaaats cutting it a little close are we not?

You may need to loose lascannons grenade lauchers and heavy stubbers. Then you can have a chimera for those plasma vets!, i know they are gonna love that!

Alternatively, you can get a primaris psyker instead of the CCS because of the order system not beeing effective with Chimeras or small squads. War!

The Hydra should do fine.

Your comment about nothing having av13 or 14 in 500 pts got me thinking and i did a quick list build.
ccs with power weapon and 3 flamers
vets with 3 plasmaguns
vets with 3 meltaguns in a chimera.
leman russ
500 pts
Would be pretty hard to deal with a russ at 500 pts. Just a thought.

While I agree w a Russ at 500pts being strong, its actually pretty easy to deal with. I also didn't say nothing in 500pts would have AV13 or 14, I said I couldn't think of anything other than a Land Raider. I had excluded Guard already, since I am playing Guard. I actually have a redo on this list that works better. I dropped the Lascannon on the CCS, both heavy stubbers, and the camo cloak. I worked in another Chimera and gave both heavy flamers hull mount.
