battleforce is and exellent start, 2 HH are a good addition as they can switch between the HH and the Fish, next bumping the kroot from the battleforce up to 20 is a good thing along w/ a crisis commander.

as you PM'ed me I assume you want a mobile list ;D so what kind of things are you looking for in this list? subtle tactics? more Dakka? speed? just gimme a general direction.

ok the battle force gives us:

3 Crisis suits
Fireknife
195pts

12xFW
shas'ui
bonded
140pts

12kroot
84pts

8gundrones
96pts
total = 516pts

good start for how many pounds?

then a HH w/ Railgun and SMS +MT,DP is 165pts for how much?

next is box of kroot at how much? and a shas'o at how much? for 60 and 110pts respectiveley bringing the total up to 845 pts that should be 100pounds and 850 points.

IMO it would be better to build in an escalation league type way, tell meif youre interested.
