Well, actually, that seems like it would work pretty well... maybe fine tune it up to fight the armies he's lost to specifically? If you could say which those are, that'd be helpful.

He's lost to a anti-tank space wolve (Stupid devastors) and a Ork Hoard I believe. He's thinking about taking out a tactical squad and throwing in a scout bike squad and making the ironclads into venerable

That seems like a good plan; the bikes will provide more mobility, which is helpful against pretty much anyone, and the venerables also seem like a good idea. The Devastators would be difficult to defeat with a Dread-based force, unless you got a lot of Autocannons or something else to take them all out. Same kinda with the Orks. So, maybe you'd also want to think of putting in more weapons with higher shots and better range? A few Heavy Bolters would help too.

I tend to play very shooty marines... So the list above would not seem too daunting since once I drop the TL/ML dreads, you run out of things to really hurt mech... If the ironclads are walking, I should have a turn at least before I have to deal with them.

I think if you were to change the load out on your tacs to just take the free ML, then it would pack more AT punch.

Also, I imagine a vulcan list would be tough...

To be honest i don't know how my brother does it. He may have a strategy he uses. But the automatic repair from the master of the forge seems to help a bunch.
