Default a couple of ideas . . .

i think with all of the helpful input from my last
coupla posts that i have made some decisions.

i think i will convert 3 XV-22's for my Shas'O and
his bodyguards and 3 commander boxes for my
Shas'El and his bodyguards. also i believe i have
come to a decision on my XV-25 stealth teams'
configuration as well.

before i start i just want to mention that i play
HIGH point games, so please bear this in mind
as you read on.

My Shas'O will have CIB, Fusion, Shield Gen,
Stims, HW Drone Controller, 1 Shield &
1 Gun drone, and HW Multi-tracker
Bodyguard #1 will have AFP, Fusion,
Shield Gen, HW Drone Controller, 1 Shield &
1 Gun drone, HW Multi-tracker, and HW-T.Lock
Bodyguard #2 will have Burst C., Fusion,
Shield Gen, HW Drone Controller, 1 Shield &
1 Gun drone, HW Multi-tracker, and HW-T.Lock

thier job will be to hose footsloggers on the
way to jucier targets.

My Shas'el unit with bodyguard mostly likely
be all equipped with Fusion, Plasma, Shield Gen.,
HW Multi-Trackers, HW Drone Controllers with
1 Shield and 1 Gun drone each, with the BG's
both having HW T. Locks.

These are to deep srike and help out my meager
HS assets (1 railhead & 2 broadsides).

My stealth teams will be configured thusly:
6 man team-Shas'Ui w/Makerlight, HW Drone
Controller w/1 Shield Drones + 1 Marker Drone, & HW T. Lock
2 will have Fusion Blasters and T. Arrays
2 will have Drone Controllers and 2 Gun drones each
1 will have Drone Controller and 2 Shield drones

These are multi-role units (2 or 3 dep. on points limit).
I find the armies i typically face are tank, terminator, or
MC heavy and require me to put uber-strong weapons
where i can stuff them, but i don't want to rely too heavily
on crisis due to the disheatening frequency of lascannons
and the like. I know it's a large footprint what with 8 drones
and 6 suits, but i tend to lose the coin toss of who gets to
place terrain at my LGS . which, of course, means my opponents
choose to place terrain in excess of 12 inches apart so as to
hamper my JSJ ability, so bigger tougher squads may be a
better plan.

also i am abandoning pathfinders due to my inability to keep
them alive past turn 2, so these will help with markerlight support
where applicable, still hose infantry, and have heavy weapons,
just in case. i tend to be more agressive with various units than
my opponents tend to expect, so i get a slight advantage that way.

anyway, opinions please!!

well, as mentioned i've got 2 broadsides and a railhead for heavy support.
a mounted Fire Warrior squad of 12
1 or 2 static Fire Warrior squads
1 maxed out kroot squad tho back them up
1 or 10 man kroot squads for infiltrating
1 or 2 gun drone quads if i need to use some extra points

after i get these conversions done i plan to get another tank
and some pirahnas.

but first i'm gonna hook up my HQ's & stealths'.
