A couple of things I would say looking at these lists, based on my current knowledge.

Are you going to use this in the next couple of weeks for a tournament?

If not, hold off until the 17th June, to confirm how everything will work under 8th.

If you are playing it immediately, then the biggest area I'll give you advice on is the leman russes.

The best way to use them is to work a role for the vehicle, then stick to it
Some potential builds include

Vanquisher cannon, lascannon sponson multi meltas. (not sure if this is too many points) for heavy vehicles.
TL Autocannon, Heavy bolter, Sponson heavy bolter, pintle heavy stubber for lighter vehicles, infantry.
Plain battle cannon, Heavy bolter.

Watch the plasma cannons as a get hot result takes off a hull point.

Avoid putting extra stuff on vehicles with ordinance as you will normally only be snapshotting the extra shot.

Do similar with the other units, work out roles for them (within reason and try to maximise their abilities for that role).
Think about how you handle each type of threat (lots of infantry, elite models like terminators, light vehicles, heavy vehicles, fliers, etc).

I would suggest you have too many flamers and not enough other weapons in the list to properly deal with the army.

Drop a sentinel and put in a promethium pipeline.

Find another 30 points and add 3x 6" 4+ cover save walls to put 6" in front of the promethium pipeline in No man's land.
