looks good. Seperate the sentinels if you can. Squadrons are easily targeted and destroyed.

Basilisks are poor in CoD because the enemy can get inside it's three foot minimum range very quickly.

Get a Griffon.
It's in the armored company rules and IA1 has the same statline and lets you use it in a normal force.

Those look good though I would replace the Baskies with demolishers.

then you just shell them with something else - theres more than one target in the game.

And remember that firing guess ranged is OPTIONAL.

Don't get basilisks, get leman russ BTs or Demolishers. Hellhounds are great but probably only one is needed. If you really want/need indirect fire get a squad or two of mortar teams. Many people may disagree with this but mortars are great for CoD.

I favor Demolishers myself. Big template, good range.

Depends on the board size. I doubt the Basilisk will be much use, but I don't see much else needs changing.

Mortars are much better...

Definatley depends on board size for Bassie vs. Demolisher. If you are playing large boards, take the bassie for sure-perfect for nailing the enemy from afar, but otheriwse take a Demolisher (or possible standard Lemen Russ. Good range.)

I say get two Bassies and lay them so that they're 3 foot ranges are just barely overlapping, so that there is almost no where to hide.
