Tried this guy, never ran into a situation where he was useful. =/ I had one army in particular I wanted to try him against, but haven't faced it since. Hope you have better luck!

I think the shield drones might not be necessary here. Deathrains often operate at extreme range, allowing them to JSJ around whatever cover they want. The only thing it would really do would be to let them move across open terrain. And protect them more when they deepstrike. I dunno if it's worth 30 points.

Minimized troops, are you sure your opponents won't mind?

Only ionheads... hrm...

If you take out the stealths, and swap your second HQ down to a 97 pointer, you can get your PF squad to 8 and change both hammerheads to railheads/SMS with target lock and disruption pods, with 3 points left over... BSF for the deathrain leader? But if your environment includes people who play with min troops, they will probably space out their guys making the submunition less useful...

i already play this list twice people don't mind that i use min troops it a relax inverment the two times i play i play my own death guard that i had a Friend use and won only lost a shield drone and kroot but it could have went ether way if he had made that assault with the demon prince he missed it by 2"

the second game was lot and lots of trems with assault cannons and some speeder with assault cannons all my crisis suit with PR help out in that win

i don't think i would want railgun most people play SM at my store and for the GEQ army's i got lots of MP and BC to hold them back it mite not be enough
