elites: non

troops
12 firewarriors

devilfish 210
if i move 12 inches and get out i have 24 shots at 27 inches, which is better than boltguns entire range....

12 firewarriors
shas ui
devilfish 210

12 firewarriors
shas ui
devilfish 210

so 630 in troops.

2 broadsides, 140
1 with multi tracker 5

145

total, 997. i had to drop a multi tracker on a broadside so i can just get it in the 1,000 point limit.

41 models. of course my commanding team will go around and kill anything it sees, hopefully even terminators. either way it can still take out a good deal of guys with 12 shots. 9 for burst cannons and the three for plasma rifles, the mroe saves you gotta make, the more you will fail.

my devilfishes are there for mobility obviously and i dont plan to shoot with them so i will start my guys in the devil fishes and unload and fire, next turn get in them,and the next unload and fire. i know this is a basic list what everyone else has for mechanized, but i never even thought of that when i made it...
Not bad for a first attempt, so here goes...

Bodyguards are essentially no better than a normal squad so it may be worth removing them and having a Crisis Elite team instead...
some would also say Shas'o's are a waste of points and a Shas'el would be just as good (something for you to consider if you want to squeeze the points)...
Also in my opinnion 3 Devilfishes is abit much, maybe drop one...
Maybe removing the Broadsides and having a Hammerhead may be more use also..
Then you may have just enough points to put in a Stealth Team which are generally extremely effective...

Hope this helps...

You'll notice lots of may or maybes as really it depends on which units work for you on the battlefield so give it a shot an make modifications dependent on your findings...
