Looks good to me, Bill. With only 500 points, an important objective for you will be to out-number (and thus, effectively out-gun) your enemy. So it's actually pretty good that you're going with the Kroot. Even in a scenario where there isn't a tree in sight, Kroot are often too tantalizing for any enemy to pass up wasting shots on. Sure, the Kroot will go down quite easily, but remember that 500 point thing. The enemy will need to choose his targets wisely and ignoring the Kroot could be just as bad. 15 str 4 shots at 24" ain't bad at all in such a small game.

As for the stealth team, I love stealth suits, su I give you a thumbs up. ;D Maximum shots for minimum models. Another good way to distract your enemy, too. Maybe ou'll even get lucky and one of his squads will waste a turn looking for them!

And you can't go wrong with the fire warriors. You gotta have them anyway.

As for you commander... The only real suggestion I have would be to make him a Shas'el and maybe give the FW team some drones... but his BS of 5 is just as useful.

So I'm done typing now! Approval of Thom is here!

thanks, i think i'll keep my commander as he is, i'm kinda centimental about him, in my last game he took out a dark eldar lord in CC but that was only because i must have passed about 20 shield saves. ;D

Ah yes... the Shield generator...
We would be lost without you, oh great Shield generator, for you are truly a thing of beauty...

...Um... Sorry. Caught up in the moment.
I've never even SEEN a Dark Eldar player, but I know that they are utter horrors in close combat, so way to go on such an achievement! Coolest thing one of my commanders ever did was blow up a Leman Russ as a Death or Glory.

But I digress. Good luck to fighting whoever your opponent may be!
