its good but i would take out a morter squad and replace it with either a Devil squad or an assault sqaud with flamers and shotties.

my catachan is allways different from normal FoC, thus only has 1 squad of troops per troop choice as mine is only combat patrol basically. I am currently modeling a new Dex though for them. Codex: Catachan Patrol. ill post it up some time soon

well, you need the mortar for swarm armies like the nids. also, what do you think about thc combat patrols? i almost maxed them out for the fast attack slot before i decided that a sentiel team should be thrown in as a more reliable fighter

patros,a re always a good idea especially if your goin to be using ambush. The reason for taking out the morters is that it leaves you with tonnes of room for more elite choices. an assault squad and a devils squad mainly. thE assault squad can still be used against swarm armies with all that flame! and then the devils for a CC neusence.

im not so sure though. the range and power of the mortars imo cannot be refused. hide them away, blow stuff up, move, wait, repeat. and also it balances out the army with its lack of real tanks or other vechicles as well as high strength weapons. the grenade launchers though are my all time favorite pick for these guys. it is the most versitile eapon, and adds a blasty feeling to the rest of the army.

i suppose it really up too you.
if you do decide to go for the devil squad and have absolulty no experience with converting them then go and buy the Gaunts Ghoasts box set. they make great devils.
