Default Imperialistic tensions! A little help would be nice...

I am quite new in this game, but I know the basis.
I'm in need of a army suitable for taking on the Imperial Guard. 1000p that is.
This is my army so far, but does it need modification?

HQ: Shas'O - PR, MP, MT 120p
Elites: 3xShas'ui stealthsuits+1x Shas'vre team leader - Bonded, ma 150p
2xShas'ui battlesuits - Fireknife 130p
Troops: 2x12 Fire Warriors - Bonded 260p
20x Kroots 140p
HS: Hammerhead - RG, SMS, TA, MT, TL, DL, 2x seeker missiles 200p

Total 1000p

looks like a very solid list to me but you need mobility of your fire warriors, the FoF tactic will work a treat here, drop the stealth suits, and give both crisis suits different combos, of course fireknife is the most versitile, but if you know you are playing gaurd a missile pod, burst cannon, multitracker combo is best imo, other than that its a solid list, ive seen a lot lot worse from beginners (including myself once upon a time ;D)

I'm not seeing any large holes against normal guard (although it could be streamlined a bit) but against tank guard or massed infantry guard I'm gonna need to make a few opinionated changes.

and still keep it at 1000points?

hmm..... I'm gonna go the whole hog here, fun goodies for all the boys ;D

Shas'El
FB,MP,MT
81pts

Troops
FoF
-12 men
-Shasúi
-Bonded
-Devilfish
-DL
225points

FoF
-12 men
-Shasúi
-Bonded
-Devilfish
-DL
225points

Kroot x 20
140points

Heavy Support
HH
-MT
-DL
-RGun
-BC
165pts

HH
-MT
-DL
-RGun
-BC
165pts

1001points

all the basics and none of the toys, perfectly suited to dealing to IG, the kroot can infiltrate and once they get into combat with the hoardes they wont stop ripping through him, the HH can use the Railguns to kill the Russ and then turn the sub on the guard to devastating effect, the FoF operate as normal, in this case they may be best used to try and roll him up into close order so the HH do max. damage w/ the railgun, speed the FoF up the flank and use them to threaten his anchors with a concentrated FoF so hell have to roll the flank up or lose one of his anchors. the Shas o is equipped to hunt tanks, he goes behind the lines sneaking to kill the incoming basilisk or the current Russ so the HH can concentrate on the Troops.

good? bad? not your style? any nitpicks?

Yea, I guess what dizzy said would do well, though personally dropping the Kroot for either Stealth Stuis or upgrade the Shas'El to Shas'O. The Hammerheads will kill, especially iff your going against little tank killing.. Although then it's not fair.

Aaah, I love the praise ;D, and the royal;ties arent bad either ;D.

just remember the FoF setup and be careful how you use it and that you use it carefully :P, it is quite asy to be carelss with pinpoint tactics and that can bog the whole game.

and grim, whatever tank killing he has can be easily weeded out, that much pulse and HH fire should eb able to rip the guts out of a few squads in short order.

but against gaurd the kroot will prove a real menace in cc and really rip through gaurdsmen in hordes, not to be underestimated, 60 attacks on gaurdsmen on the charge? plus infiltrating which gets them even closer? sign me up for these guys. Sometimes underestimated in small points battles but against gaurd these guys can do something special!
