I have never fielded an army like this. It looks like a good mix to me. I face mostly an assortment of Marines. I guess there isn't much to change due to how limited my wargear options are.

I don't see why you are taking a landraider as your Inquis will deploy in cover and shoot things. There are far better things to spend those points on. You could take 2 Dreads or so GK terminators. Also, throw in another couple cheap retinue members so your efficiency won't take a hit if you start taking casualties to the unit.

i would also scrap the landraider, remember our codex allows rhinos and Chimera to be open topped if any models are under 3+ armour so if you have a gun heavy retinue they can all fire (but it sucks if someone scores a hit against you).

and in any case a single landraider is a fire magnet and if you put anything in it you want more of an assaulty unit IMO

you could take them in a rhino and then have a load of points to put somewhere else maybe one more russ?

but you don't have to listen to me as i've never taken a list like this as i play "pure" only, just an idea

If you want to stick to this theme then I'm all for it, but I would drop the Inq's LR and AA, plus drop 1 Sage and take 2 Mystics (always)...just give him a Rhino instead.

I would then field as many Elite Inq/retinues as points will allow, and just continue with this theme until the FOC is full. In higher points lists I would then add a HQ BC/GM and also start fielding LR/LRC's and GK(T) units.
I would also make the 6th IST Squad a Meltagun one, as they are usually needed more than Plasma ones.
This is how I build all my pure DH/Allied IG lists, and it makes for a powerful all-comers force.

.
To take a Leman Russ in a DH force you must take 2 Imp. Guard troop choices from the available ones (Infantry Platoon or Armoured fist) and since there are no more armoured fist squads in the codex then you must take 2 infantry platoons to take a Leman Russ

They only count as open topped for the purpose of the vehicle being shot at, i am pretty certain anyways, i may be wrong though
