Default 1850pt army list, feel free to be honest/brutal!

so i got one Hammerhead, one devilfish and a crisis commander....i made the crisis commander and tried out a few mini conversions to make him special....firstly i posed him in mid flight with legs bent right back and both arms held aloft (superman style!), then i put his multitracker in the crest of his jetpack behind the helmet, and added stealth jetpack antennae on the side of his head and gun drone antenni on the top of his head....hard to describe but he looks cool!!!

now ive got more stuff ill give you a nice list....im not working toward any particular points cost at the moment....

HQ -

Ethereal - [50]

Ok, i am prepared to drop this is you give me some VERY good reasons why....

Shas'o
Fusion Blaster, Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Hard Wired Multitracker - [127]

Don't tell me to switch to a fireknife Shas'el! Or to drop the fusion blaster, it proves invaluable at insant killing space marine character, phoenix lords etc.....i use my commander well and he takes out enough important units to make him worth his points cost....

ELITES -

3 Stealth Suits - [90]

I need a few more of these but ill field 3 all the same...

2 Crisis Suits - [130]
Both Fireknife

1 Crisis Suit - [57]
Twin Linked Missile Pod, Flamer

The flamer is just to fill the hard point, this guy will do the rhino/vyper/landspeeder popping

TROOPS -

20 Kroot Carnivores - [140]

12 Fire Warriors, Bonded, Shas'ui x 2 - [280]

12 Fire Warriors, Bonded, Shas'ui x 2 - [450]
Devilfish, Decoy Launchers (85)

FAST ATTACK -

I've decided to give the pathfinders a miss for now...

HEAVY SUPPORT -

2 Broadsides - [192]
2 Shield Generators, Team Leader with hard wired target lock

Hammerhead x 2 - [330]
Railgun, Burst Cannon, Multracker, Decoy Launchers

TOTAL- 1852

Well that comes up to a nice points total seeing as 1850 is some sort of standard in a lot of tornuments....be harsh when you see this but remember it is MY list! Oh and i play chaos (KHORNE), space marine (BLACK TEMPLAR) and eldar (BIEL-TAN) the most,

thanks a lot,

im not reall yowrking toward a points limit so.....as for the sides when i play eldar i have to take down an avatar, 2 wraithlords, a flacon and a ws, so it helps to have a few more railguns that are more likely to hit.....

Well then you might wanna do what I said befor and then add a markerlight to yer shas'ui in the FW squads, helpful and that spells doom for the WS as itll try and get close but you markerlight it and boom goes plasasteel!

i suppose its always nice to have markerlighted railguns...i suppose they would be best for my HH's becuase broadsides hit 75% of the time to HH's 66%, the best time to use it IMO is when you want to place a submunitions blast agaisnt a unit in cover....the markerlight takes away their cover saves! deadly if they have 4+ armour or worse!
