750, what to get for 1500
So, I've been playing 750 pts against my friends (dark Eldar, Space Marines, World Eaters, Necrons, Eldar and IG) with the following list, but after christmas, we will be going for 1000 pts, and then 1500 later.
Currently, I'm either winning, or getting draws (depending on how lucky i am...) and i would like to keep doing that : )
But, i'm not sure what to get next : /

I've thought about 2 more stealth suits, and 3 Helios suits in the elites.
and maybe add marker lights to the firewarriors, and add another squad with carbines and a fish. But will that work, or do i need to really "cheese it out"?

Suits, and Fish with more fire warriors. Short but sweet
what is the cause of causal causation ?

You'll start to really need anti-vehicle at 1500 pts. Considering your fairly 'hybrid' styled list, i'd go for some broadsides - like 2 at least. A railhead is fine, but for about the same price you could get a really good 2-man team, or two fairly tough 1-man teams. (You've got the bases covered regarding light vehicles though, with your 2 deathrains.)
Get some Kroot too, to fill out your troop selections. I take it you're aiming for a more competitive kind of list, since your min-maxing your FWs. However, Kroot are cheap, versatile and tend to be more points-efficient than FWs because of their infiltrating ability, fieldcraft, and bolters.
Finally, consider fitting in a team of helios crisis suits (fusion, plas + multi-tracker/targetting array) to help kill MEqs, vehicles and flush out anything trying to hide from ur dudes (just remember to give them shield drones). If you still have room after that, then get some more piranhas, and maybe even a pathfinder team or a couple sniper drone teams for cheap markerlights.
Oh, and lastly, get rid of those sensor spines on the piranhas. They're not worth it.
Hope that helps.
