I like the sharpshooters doctrine in the specialty squads, but I'd drop it from the flashlight squads and the HQ squad. if you're going to kit out your HSO, I'd make his followers veterans with pistols and swords. the points saved by not giving sharpshooters to a buncha S3 weapons more than pay for this. I'd also upgrade the heavy bolter squad to an autocannon squad. I'd also drop the heavy bolter sponsons from the russ and change the lascannon on the demolisher to a heavy flamer.

yes, good idea for the sharpshooters, and i might upgrade t oautocannons, depends on the army im against. ill probablay keep the HB sponsons on the russ though, as a backup (the lascannon will do no good vs a bunch of orks).

edit this to:
Command squad 100 pts
4 laspistol+ccw ,frag nades
HSO :Laspistol and power Fist.
and comissar as an advisor in there. might take one armoured fist out, and put my CC Command squad in instead, to tie up a squad of marines for a turn or 2 (orr just kill them if im lucky)

List looks solid overall, though as you know it is not to my specific tastes. :

However, last time I checked, the Hand Flamer is only available in the Eldritch Raiders list... I assume you are using it as a Bolt Pistol? If so, please make that clear on your list to save confusion.

well im not etireley sure, as the model has an old style flamer, being held in one hand (with a little fuel tank, that you can just about see in my avatar)

not quite to your tastes, hehe, i read the tactica thingy and your doctrines section just before i posted this list. i have, stil lgot to buy some of this stuff (2 armoured fist squads and demolisher) but a GW staffmember is selling 20 men and a lemen russ to me for 25 so ill just get the chimeras when i can afford them. you can probabley see that sharpshooters fit my army well, as i prefer specialist squads than (for example) a missile launcher i na squad needing to take out a rhino full of men and wasting the rest of the squads lasfire, when 3 krak missiles could blow it to bits and the lasfire could go towards infantry

The model in your sig has a Hand Flamer, a weapon that is no longer Codex-legal. I suggest you just use "counts as" and say its a Bolt Pistol.

Ya as I just resuntly said in another thred.. the hand-flamer hasn't been legal since 2nd edition..

They really should make a point of doing new commissars.. but alas they haven't, so in the mean time you gotta either convert it to a bolt pistol or something or just say it counts as one.

I would strip your hardened veteran squad to the just the VS 3x Grenade Launchers, and throw in a missle launcher. Then with the points freed up buy more storm trooprs.

Also Sharpshooters is pointless outside you meltagunnythingiedohickie squads

id say it's pretty usefull for the missile squad, as they are vital shots, 3 missed, isnt just a couple of misses, i really need all 3 to hit if im going to destroy a medium/heavy tank. and ill probablay just count it as a BP because i think it looks pretty good on the model
