Default XV23 farsight battlesuit team

If you look under house rules you can see these rules... now the only question is how to convert them:
I've thought about buying a whole bunch of O'Shovahs but seems way too unnecessarily expensive, then I thought about using stealthsuits but the question is what bit to use then to make the pulse blade he carries...

any ideas on which bits to use, or a whole different idea on the matter will be greatly appreciated...

Well they are rules i posted up ( note creator is RJay, RJay is me)..

My original intention was to use Stealth Battlesuits and modify them to be smaller Crisis suits, so instead of the one jetpack i would use two and mould them together like Crisis Jetpacks, obviously removing the antenas... Also i was going to drill a hole in the jetpack so they could be floating... O and remove the lower arms and replace the Burst Cannon with a weapon of your choice and create the blade by using the main body of a flamer with some form of blade on the end instead of the barrel...

Well there you go, suggestions by the creator himself, cant beat that...
