May want to drop that whirlwind for a land speeder or two mate. While it may be useful against hordes a well kitted land speeder can take several weapons to fulfil several roles. and im positive there's a variant that lets you add a cyclone missile launcher. other than that i like this list.

That's another option I've not thought of, I've not really done the maths, I've just saw 65 points spare which was what it costs for a whirlwind. I suppose the only advantage of the whirlwind is it can sit at the edge of the board relatively out of site.

i wouldnt even call that an advantage. Land speeders can deepstrike, they are quick and they can jink. add to that a heavy bolter and multi melta/heavy flamer costs ballpark of 70 pts youve got a very usable little asset there. more so if you can manage to sneak in 2 of them. typhoon missle launcher would bring cost to roughly 75 pts but with 48" range. not a pie plate but certainly enough to ruin someones day.
