Fingolfin:

Very nice very nice indeed.
Only 3 or 4 problems i can spot if this will be a DW army played in lots of jungle.

1- Your troops have limited movment as of the heavy weapons. (which you have lots of) And thus arnt all that suited to thick jungles as you cant see very far anyway.

2-You have nothing of real catachan taste in here. Maybe a patrol squad or assasult squad could do you wonders here. thinck ambush if you will.

3-No traps? thats odd. I have only ever seen 1 other catachan army without traps before and that was mine before i learnt how good they are.

4-If not played in lots of jungle thuis is a supurb firing line army. will do well against both swarm armies and power armour.

Hope this helps. Just a few pointers.

thanks for the advice..the lack of traps is made up for with the mortar squads and any tanks or monstrous creatures will be laid to waste with the cannons.i dont like the traps too much because there are so many ways to get around terrain tests these days. i will prob drop a squad of mortars for 2 squads of assault teams. one thing i was wondering whether or not the power fist would fit nicely with the captain.i will soon find out.i will also drop the heavy bolters but keep the missiles to put any lictors or raveners to sleep.they would also be handy if i wasnt playing in the jungle... but i try not to think about the off chances of that.

fingolfin:

Thats okay dude. If you could, drop the mortar the squad (just 1 of them) and replace it with a patrol squad and an asssault squad then your sitting on a nice peice of list. Also dropping the Heavy bolters will free up some points for a couple of snipers.

i was thinking two small assault squads. the snipers are a good idea, but they dont move. i am going to consider them on my second draft.
i am also considering the fluff for them too... the catachan 665 1/2 battalion

1/2 battalion? interesting. I like your ideas but just quickly what weapons are you thinking of for your assault/special squads?

Nice. If you can try and fit in a heavy flamer and a demo charge.

Post up the second list soon

i would, but i would loose an attack when i assualt.and my officers lack 'true grit' (though i am sure my catachans would have crossed that threshold already...)
