Fine as it is, although I would take quantity over quality here...

The points are off. Either you have paif 5 pts too much or you forgot listing a target lock. I would say keep the 5 pts, a devilfish does not need target locks, anyway...
Other than that no complains her either...

Why 13? Did you have points left? 10 should do just fine...

Why the hell is he bonded? Drones do not count for rallying anyway.

Again: Why bonded? Under half of the initial unit strength means zero XV88

Not much to comment either.


All in all I would say your army lacks firepower. The units in itself are fine and good, but the combinations thereof are not that good. A hybrid army can field more dakka than that.

But then again I do not know what your Fast Attack is...

The Fast Attack (150) was a typo, from when I was replacing the Piranhas with Stealth Suits. I didn't seem to get my points' worth outof them, and wanted to try something else out. Same with the 125 for the DF. changed them to 120.

I put in the Shas'Ui Team Leaders/TA on the XV-8's to help with my lack of low-ap firepower, wile at the same time helping with popping light-transports.

As for the Kroot, I did have points left over, but I also wanted a bit more bang and durability when they infiltrate.

If I bump the suits to regular Fireknives, and lose 3 Kroot, I have...71 points(30 from the suits, 21 from Kroot 10 from the Broadsides, and 10 from the Fish typo). I was pretty sure Drones were taken into account for unit strength and rallying when below half. But then again, when both drones are lost, he wouldn't be below half anyhow. Guess it was a subconscious thinking thing.

So what to do with those 71 points? Anothe Fireknife would cost 62, leaving 9 points. BSF for the Broadsides?

Or perhaps add another XV-25 team, and grouping the XV-8's together? Or making a team of 6?

I would not add any more stealthsuits. You can have S5 weaponry en masse in the troops-section.

To be honest, I would kick the XV25s entirely. then we have 221 spare points. Enough for 2 additional fireknifes and two deathrains, leaving 5 points spare.

Then you´d have 2x2 fireknifes and 1x2 deathrains . Never underestimate massed missile pods.

Or get 1x2 fireknives and 2x2 deathrains, leaving 37 points spare.

Or take further broadsides (but I personally would not do that).

But I would say go with 2x2 fireknives and 1x2 deathrains.
