IA8 Dread mob army list at 1500 - any good?

Looking through the IA8 book tonight and looking at a different variant of an army list for some interest in getting some big scary models on the table I came up with this list

Buzzgob 100
Big Mek + KFF 85

20 x spanner boyz 120
20 x spanner boyz 120
20 x spanner boyz 120
Deff Dread (2 x scorchas) 95

3 x killa kans (RLs) 150
3 x killa kans (RLs) 150

10 Lootas 150
Mega Dread 175
Lifta Droppa Wagon + extra amr 235

It comes to 1500 on the nose and would be a typical foot horde advancing under the cover of the kans and dreads whilst the lootas and lifta droppa plays havoc on any armour. I have most of the models already and the list doesn't get to include nobs as mess are its standard upgrades of choice. On the table i'm thinking that the intimidation factor would allow most of the army to get across for the cost of the dreads and then it'll give the 60 boyz a chance to get stuck in and do what they do best. C+C please

I don't know what those things do, so I can't help here.

USMC, Oorah!

lifter droppers essentially target vehicles and randomly throw them around the battlefield crashing into other units/tanks. it can't target flyers or super heavies but i can see a land raider smashing into a unit of power armour one day to great delight.

mega dreads are just beefier AV 13 killkannon armed dreads with better armour and a few different weapon options - just an excuse for an awesome model on the table.

Buzzgob is a fired up mek with up to 7 attacks on the charge and Ld 9. most of his stats are better than the standard big mek across the board so he should pack a punch to support in an attack.

Looks fine to me. I personally would get more kans/dreds in there, but then I am not quite sane...
