1 Full team Crisis team

1 Piranha X42 version with rail guns

2 Hammerhead with Railguns, smart missle system

1 Broadside squad

Stealthteam

All my vehicles have seeker missles

any help will be appreciated.....and of course....I know shoot out of the gate and use the big guns against any vehicles......but what about Deep striking or infeltrating (SP???)????

Thanks all

What does the commander have and how many are in the stealth team and broadside team? And can you change whats on the crisis suits? If you could I would go with Fireknife or Helios. Inflitrate the stealth teamslightly to help stop enemy infiltators, and put the kroot at the edge to again help stop infiltrators.

You are going to need more FW's. At least 3 squad in every list you make. Kroot are worthless vs Chaos. You will also need some AP2 weapons. More than what you have.

The Kroot are basically to shoot at so my Firewarriors can pop off shots....as for AP weapons.....I should be ok......I'll have so many Railguns and missle systems firing it won't be funny.

All my squads are man maxed....my Crisis is maxed...my Broadsides are maxed....all my troops are maxed.....

also...the other Crisis suits will have twin linked fusion blaster for the BG team with my commander......looks like I'll have these instead of the the Stealth team.

Since chaos doesn't have drop pods, you should think about running more static elements like sniper drones. They are great MEQ stopping power and have a BS4 markerlight. Ionheads are great against chaos as are twin linked plasma cannon crisis suits. grab some fusion kitted Piranhas for tank/oblit hunting and your good to go.

nice! I've got TL RR on my piranaha...using the TX42 version....as for my suits.....the commander team is going to be twin linked Fusion and the other TL MP........all with TArray.....

I havn't tried my Sniper Team yet.....I use a full Broadside Team and 2 Hammerheads with Railguns for my 3 heavies.....I hate the 3 heavy rule....

I was thinking about getting rid of the Hammerheads and throwing in 2 more full teams of Broadsides.....that's 18 Railguns in TL mode and 9 Smart missle packs going off.......
