Not half bad, methinks... the Cobras will probably suffer from their lack of mobility... they can't even Fleet IIRC!

Might I suggest partying the Leader with the Cobras? They all benefit from better saves and with some tooling up will generate alot more attacks.

If you're purely aimed for assault with the Dragons, I'd throw in a second Powerfist for each squad.

I like the looks of things otherwise... it's interesting to see so many models, as my insistance on tooled-out Malefactors for squad leaders realy chomps into the model count.

Hmmm I was thinking I could drop the venom and add a malefactor with a witchblade to the Cobras. Then use the Cobras and my Leader to tag team people. I've done this twice with reasonable success. Yeah I tend to like having large numbers of models just because it gives me flexibility. The other advantage is that it allows me to leverage vast amounts of firepower. I have about 50 Shuriken Catapult shots even at half strength. Then toss in brightlances, fusion pistols, missile launchers, ghost warriors and assualt units and thats is a truly blistering offensive.
