good choices here, which weapon on your master is master crafted?


The tactical squad seems a bit odd. Give the guy with the flamer something else, like a plasmagun(Easily converted from flamers). Some for the second squad.

Drop the grenades from the troops, these are shooting squads and they will not be needing them.

Nice simple dread, but he'll need to get across the field to do a lot of damage. Give him some survivability.

Fast Attack
the assalt squad is nice, if a bit expensive. Same with the bikers.

Heavy Support

I'm not a big fan of triple lascannon Preds, I'll let someone else cover that one.

The Devs are a bit of a mess. You have an anti infantry gun, an anti tank gun, and two that can be either. From my experience it's best to stick to one type within a squad. I'm not sure what to suggest here, as I don't know what else you have. You could take the Missile launchers out of the tactical squads and give them the other heavy weapons.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

yeah the best weapon for a devastator squad is a missile launcher, it doesn't matter what you are facing, you can take anything out with them

The predator, use heavy bolter sponsoons instead, 3 lascannons is overkill especially when you have 4 missile launchers (if you take my advice) backing them up.

So with that I say
"Thank You" to the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines,
for preserving my rights
to live and die for this life
and paying the ultimate price for me to be...FREE!
