I dont think you have enough commanders to issue orders.  Maybe add a 2nd company commander?  You also look a bit light on anti tank.  

 

Maybe switch out your missile launchers for lascannons?  

Also with 48 points to spare you could add a 2nd unit of mortars.

I couldn’t remember how many HQ’s I was allowed so he’s Straight in.

Wouldn’t I have to drop a heavy support unit to get another squad of mortars in?

I think the missiles are more fluffy for Tanith First and Only

You can add a 4th heavy support.. also in a brigade you must have 3 HQs.  So adding a 2nd company commander seems like a requirement.

So if I add in the second commander taking HQ to 3 and the second set of motar team it takes me to be 16 points over.

Unless they’re integral to your battle plan I’d consider dropping the chimeras for an extra (command) Russ giving you a spearhead. Extra points left over for above changes, plus two aren’t that hard to deal with at 1500 pts. Also the uses of armour I can remember from the ghost novels usually had a charismatic tank commander featured so fluffy as well!
