200 points buys an Ordinatus with 3 death rays

I only refering to vortex missiles for squats.

I don't have a problem in getting good assault values for IG, especially
when support weapons and hellhounds are used to provide support in close

I can post you my 'ideal' version of an IG army to the list if you like.
You then give your opinion how well it would do against your army.
Note my 'ideal' IG army was designed to deal with all comers, not
specifically Ork army. I however still think it would do very well
against the army you posted. I also have an 'ideal' 2000 point Ork army,
if you wish me to post that as well.

Finally, please don't take any comments I have made personally.
Believe it or not, my comments are intended to be helpful by
pointing weaknesses in your army that you may have not recognised.
