Falstead-

You are completely off your rocker!

Looks like a great list. I can't really see glaring errors anywhere. You should be able to give anyone a run for their money, especially with the 6 skimmers on the table. I like how you were able to break up the crisis and piranhas into individual scoring units.

One last thought- Where's your markerlights????? *Blasphemy!*

Marker whats?

I'm kidding.

In most lists I just don't have room for them. I very rarely have anything other than Kroot standing still, and unfortunately most markerlights need to be stationary to work.

I've been meaning to put together my skyray turret, but I've been busy, and hammerheads work so well...

I figure with 5 Plasma rifles, 2 at BS 5, 3 at BS 4 markerlights are less important.

The only BS 3 things in the army that could use the lights are actually the 16 firewarriors!

In my 1700 point list I do usually run pathfinders, and I love them. Unfortunately there just wasn't room in this version.
