Default What to get next?

Ok im wondering what i should buy next. I plan to have a hybrid army. As of now i have 4 crisis, 36 firewarriors, hh, df, 20 kroot, 3 stealths. I really want some pathfinders, but they are expensive to buy all at once, and i think i need to get some more stealths. Should i dig up some money for the pathfinders or get 3 more stealths? Something else?

It looks like you have enough FW, and possibly kroot. You will definatly need 3 more stealth to make a full squad. I recomend 9 more because stealth are possibly one of the best units we have. Jet Packs, Stealth, 3 shots, Str 5, Armour 3+. Very good.

I also recommend another HH. Most people take 3 no matter what. And I recomend to do this. Get another hammerhead.

Pathfinders...IMO...can wait. They are pretty good, but not nesicary in building the foundations of an army.

Depending on how much you like Crisis...you may want more.

Stealth or Hammerhead. I recomend those two.

How much are you looking to spend really?

The stealths are a good start and then it depends on your budget. Can you afford a hammerhead at the moment?

4 Crisis will hold you for quite a while. 36 FW and 20 kroot might just be all the troops you ever need (barring devilfish.)

I'd go ahead and grab another 3 stealths. It's nice to have a full squad (though if you want the new stealths, you have to wait until they come out later this year!) The pathfinders are really not much worse since you already have the devilfish. You'd have to buy two stealth blisters to get 3 more, and two pathfinder blisters contains 6 pathfinders - a respectable size team.

If you get any vehicle, get a skyray. It comes with all the parts to make a devilfish, hammerhead, or skyray, and if you assemble it cleverly with magnets or other tricks, you can switch between all three vehicles.

Actually it doesn't come with the drones for a devilfish, but you should have some drones lying around, right?

i would advise three stealths and then another Devilfish or a skyray. not becasue it is extremely useful but because it has the parts to make a devilfish,Hammerhead or a skyray.

The skyray would be a good buy actually. Don't glue on the turret though, use magnets so you can switch off between skyray/hammerhead/devilfish, In essence the reason to buy it is not to feild it, but to be able to feild a hammerhead and throw in the skyray now and then for a change of pace.

If you buy off ebay... you get stealth cheaper AND they are avalible right now. I bought my stealth 2 months ago!
