Well, I'll tell ya. These guys had me worried in our VASSAL game. I think if you had started the third squad on the table you would've been able to overwhelm my line. Especially in a "Kill em all" sort of mission as opposed to an objective based one. It takes a simply demented amount of firepower to blow away that many models moving so fast before they hit. And when a number of them are Vet Assault Squads, DC and Honour Guard, that's gonna cause some pain. What I would recomend is an increase in the army's ranged anti-tank capability. I'm not 100% up on the BA jump packing special weapon options, but I would add a meltagun or two to the force if it is at all possible. You'll probably have to downgrade some of the CC weapons like the vets' lightning claws (I know, they look cool though) in order to get the pts you need, but it would mean that if your baal is taken out you have a way of bringing down vehicles other than trying to punch or grenade them to death. Of course that's still a very fun tactic, especially when you end up making a dreadnought explode as a result ;D

Hmm, looks good. I'd try to find a way to get the third Assault Squad a powerfist instead, I think it's far more useful.
