Default Re: 1000 Point List (Marine Killing) - Improvements?

Sniper Drones are great at killing MEqs, not so much pinning them.
I strongly suggest you simply focus the Railrifles on killing MEqs and utilize the spotters markerlight to aide your FishoFury. You may want to consider an Ionhead instead of a Railhead as it is amazing at killing MEqs and frees up a large chunk of points. You are already carrying a decent amount of Fusion Blasters to take on those Dreads but not neccesarily enough to take on the rest of the Marines.

Just My Opinion and some basic advice you prolly already knew.

Good luck, cap a few SM for me,
O'Dev'n
