Not only no tanks, but no transports. Once you expand your force,
seriously give thought to mounting the troops and/or havocs...

These guys in particular would benefit from a transport with all
those lovely flamers. It wouldn't be so much of a 'drive by' as a
'drive-n-fry'.

Ok, I'll bite - why the 'odd' mix of weapons? By that I mean
giving them 2 Hvy Bolters (which isn't great with the ML's) and tank
hunters, which is utterly useless with that skill. Consider two ML,
and 2 Las, or the classic Las & Plas combo. Also consider ditching the
gear on the champ. Pricy HTH/short range gear on a champ (who's largely
a bullet catcher) in a stand and shoot type heavy weapons unit is very
unlikely to earn back his points.

That's the sort of evil that will make you proud on the battle
field.

I'm sure other folks with more experience can offer better
suggestions, but it's a start at least.

Hope that helps,

A much better choice of weapons for tank hunting havocs.

Autocannons are a much better choice with the tank hunters skill.
You'll be able to hunt light armor with them and still use them for
anti-infantry work along with the missile launchers. Flexibility is
good. Plus you came out a model ahead and still dropped your total
points cost. Also a bonus.
