Seems like half is mobile, the other static. Maybe keep the ethereal and honor guard and one unit of fire warriors static. Drop a squad to add a devilfish. Hell, drop 2 squads and get devilfishes for each squad. Or, drop one squad, and give markerlights, bonding, and shas ui upgrade to the 3 squads. You could then be using the honor guard for a big punch and combined with markerlight, hitting on 2's and wounding on 2s or 3s is pretty nice.

I like the pathfinders and skyray. In 1,000 points, this may be the only anti tank you need, unless you go up against an armored company. That is just a thought, but a HH is always nice to have..

funnily enough, I wanted to get bonding in there somewhere but was concerned that the army would be lacking on troops (more for the background than anything else, though the ethereal can ask for anything andget it without question)

I'm not a huge fan of the under-equipped Tanks... Multi Trackers and Decoy Launchers are a great investment. Targetting Array on the Skyray is great as well, helps for Markerlight hits and the Burst Cannons if you have to use them.

Ethreals are tricky to use, I say you ditch him.

I have never seen the ethereal and the body guard used, let me kow how it turns out. It seems it could be a good use, as long as all the body guard can keep the poor etheral alive. List looks pretty good, but you may haved some troubles agaist termies. Maybe a suit or two with fireknife or helios? All your call.

I suppose If i drop a squad i can upgrade some of the squads & get some stuff for the vehicles (maybe a few extra seekers for the pathfnders to fire?)

I did read your whole post, don't start a flame war please.

Your list has static Fire Warriors with mobile everything else, you need to utilise XV8 'Crisis' teams aswell, as they are the muscle of your army.

I said that because i said that the ethereal is central to the ackground so he will stay there, as that's the only thing I won't change


I wasn't intending to start a flame war
