Ah... well, I'm not sure if you are actually allowed to "double up" on Crisis Suit weapons. I know you can twin-link them, but I'd check with the other members and see what they say.

I think he means twin linked as he is referring to broadsides and they must have a twin linked railgun.

Its a nice force plenty of models, the infantry provide great anti infantry power whilst the BS give good anti-armour.

Oh sorry just realised you were talking about the missile pods, yes must be twin linked.
I wouldnt do this for a shas'el, just give him a pod and rifle.

Personally i prefer ethereals in small games s they take less points and can be invaluable in keeping your force on the table(easy to protect with the numbers you have aswell). Then you could add a few more models and make the force even harder to destroy.

No jump packs for the aux, only suits and drones. Also grenades have to be taken for the whole team, and all or none deal.
Bonding is a regroup thing(see bottom right p 18 of codex "Bonding Knife")

In 500pts(flash rules) you cant take any modle with more then 3 wounds or a 2+ save.

Get a copy of the flash rules before you make a 500pts army.

40k in 40 minutes rules this applies but they are 400 point games.

You can play regular 500 point games with no limitations, thats what id go as the patrol thing really doesnt work all that great in games over 400 points.

So you dont have to change your list.
