This is pretty cheesy, but I thought I should publish it anyway, seeing as it's the first list I've made in weeks. :

Plus it's a chance to play with the tags.

yup, very cheesy. In fact, so cheesy it is illegal.

Your HQ- you should re-read the combat patrol rules [too many wounds?]

Besides that, I don't find your list that cheesy at all. What do you do vs Necrons? 40 Guardsmen wielding heavy weapons?

Versus necrons fusion blaster wreak havoc, and firewarriors can harass warrior squad few turns before skimmers come in. For guard, you have 5 sets of two gun drones, pinning is quite likely. You just have to hit lone squads for max efficiency.

You could change the Shas'El to Shas'Ui or Shas'Vre, and with extra points maybe get markerlight and few seekers. That would beef up the necron softening effect, and could be good against vehicles too.

Tip is to take targeting array on your Piranhas. especially sense you have Fusion blaster on them you want them to hit, and that 5p for +1BS is good ^^

twin linked missile pods, a flamer, and a hardwired multi tracker...when will you EVER shoot both in the same shooting phase!?

anything but that should be good enough to hardwire...

I wrote this kind of late at knight and was working from the assumption I had to have 1 HQ and 1 troops. Now that I have my BBB at hand though, I can get rid of that.

Good point. I'll dump the HW point.

For the extra points, would it be a good idea to just spend them upgrading the piranha's BS values or should I bulk out the fire warrior squad a bit?

I'd bulk out the FWs. I love piranha, but only 6 firewarriors means that you have 13 guns in your army, 5 of which are fusion. Maybe make one of the 2-team Piranhas have BCs? Frees up more points for more FWs

yeah i think bulking up the fire warriors is the way to go. and if you have any left over points i would upgrade BS.

if you drop the HW MT, th 'el down to a 'vre, and make two fusion blaster on the pirhanas, you have 30 points. get three FWs. cool list though.

From a fluff perspective, you should probably mount the Fire Warriors. How are they keeping up with the patrol?
