So, um. Nothing? No comments? Flames? AM I that good?

Not even a half-illiterate 13 year old screaming I should just take 10 hammerheads and 3 broadside suits?

Drones all depend on how you can get the drone rule interprited.

I like bodygaurds, find there twin linked Pl's usefull, but I might try the 3 suits instead of the two bodygaurds if they cost the same., it is likely that they do not, though.

I take etherals because i fail to many leadership tests otherwise.

the Shield drones are toughness 3, the suits are toughness 4.

I can't put any more kroot in that squad. its full. the upgrade is for leadership, and has saved my bacon very often.

And you can explaine about the braodsides if you want, but they are always my killiest squad, point for point. i love them.

We play a great deal of nightfight at the weekly tournaments i play in. the blacksun filter is the most agrivating peice of equipment I give my squads for my opponents.

I might do what you suggested with the crisis squad about my IC Shas'O.

Oh, and I'm ramoving the gun drones from my stealth squad and giving him a marker light and target lock instead. those are nasty agianst rangers. I hate Alaitoc.

I find that an etheral is worse than none when you fail lots of tests as if it dies , youve lost.

the 3 suits cost less, theyre 55 each, so 165pts total, better if you ask me.

Broadsides are strictly inferior to hammerheads. the main preblem with them is they cant move, take an age to redeploy and cant do submunitions (and the models blow.) trade them for a hammerhead and a squad of FW if you can afford.
