Brutal list. I like its simplicity and dangerousness-icity.

I do have a beef with Fireknives in general though. I think you could do better with 2x Deathrains and 2x Blinding Spears/Helios. Plasma really isn't worth it pt wise unless you are rapid firing. That 12" is going to be wasted when coupled with a 36" Assault 2 weapon.

Stealthsuits are your best friend ;D

Ta,

It should also have targetting Locks on the heads but i forgot to write it down.

I've also replaced the TA on the fish for a bonding knife on the broadsides.

Having a few thoughts. Kind of combining my recent games with my past games.

In the past i've struggled to kill 2+ armour, which means i'd ideally want some more plasma now crisis suits are better.

I've has a lot of trouble hitting things recently - crisis suits have a really bad BS.

The markerlights just don't seem to be working for me either. The finders need to set up with fairly limited los to avoid getting done in and just don't contribute enough IMO with such a limited view. They're also static and the non scoring transport is nowhere near as useful as the same no of none scoring points put into a Shas'El.

With these things in mind i bring you:

HQ

Shas'El, TA, PR, CIB, MT - 100

Shas'El, TA, PR, MP, MT - 97
Shas'Vre, TA, PR, MP ,MT + 2 * shield drones - 112


Elites

2 fireknives + 2 shield drones -159
2 * Dethrain suits (Blacksun filters) - 92
6 stealths - 180

Troops

6 FWs - 60

10 Kroot - 70

10 Kroot - 70


Heavy Support

2* broadsides + bottom + 2 shield drones + Bonded- 200

Hammerhead - Railgun, SMS, Decoys, Multitracker + Target Lock - 180

Hammerhead - Railgun, SMS, Decoys, Multitracker + Target Lock - 180

1500

Still less than 200pts in non scoring units, a bit more bounce and a bit more accurate without having to faff about with static pathfinders.

What say you!
