I'm hoping to get into Iron Hands as my next Legion, and I think this is a fluffy (And not terrible crunch-wise) way to start. What do you guys think?

How do you get the Thallax in this list? Don't you need the Pravean upgrade or a RoW?

According to the Legiones Astartes Crusade Army List book, you Thallax Cohorts or Castellax Battle-Automata Maniples are optional heavy supports for the Astartes, if you have a Cortex Controller in your army.

Drop the cyber familiar on the tactical Sargent, it's only a 6++ so meh and use thoes points to give the forge Lord a cortex controller for the same 15 points and that solves your thallax problem :)

Medusan immortals squad is good, remember grav guns are heavy weapons so you can't move and shoot. Maybe swap them for meltas unless they are just camping. Love the TH.

Contemptor is great. If you could upgrade the twin bolter to a grav or something maybe

Thallax very cool and fluffy.

Tacts are set up good

Overall I really like your list

Totally like the list, but I'd non the less consider going full (scoring) Immortals with 'Bitter Iron'. Though the appeal of the Thallax is pretty strong indeed.

Smile like Dynat when you're winning !
