Default Crisis only army

I was looking over the the codex and I looked at the Farsight entry and relised that every heavy support choice was 0-1. Then I thought that with the 1+ Crisis team and the 7 body guards Farsight gets you could make and almost entire army without any Heavy Support choices. Has anyone here ever tried that?

I did that once to beat a cheese army a friend of mine made. He had designed a 700 plus point doom squad centered on a demon prince surrounded by 8 korne aspiring champions. They all had 2+ 5+ saves, feel no pain, and flight. Plus they had a ridiculous amount of attacks on the charge and the Demon Prince himself was a CC monster with a chainfist and an axe of khorne and demonic stature just to name a few of his upgrades. It was ridiculous as I couldn't destroy more t han 3 or 4 of his retinue at most before he tore into my line and started marching through my units.

So to counter him I designed a huge Farsight bodygaurd unit all with Twin linked Fusion Blasters and a bungh of other upgrades. My unit was around 700+ points too, and it killed him(imagine that).

Other than that I've no experience with this type of list.

Some guy here had an army list with the full 7+Farsight squad...I think he said that it was basically unstoppable but was clumsy to move around with the 8 big bases. I suppose you could make a large suit army, with 7 suits as bodyguard, Farsight, another commander+2 bodyguards, then 9 crisis for elites. And maybe mounted FWs to keep up. Which would total up at around 2000 pts for max suits.
wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiii
