interesting... im not really gonna comment much here as i am practically anti the majority of things you have, i hate kroot and multiple fishes, so no comment on those as im being nice...*

One major thing with that list though is its lacking anything anti tank, in fact you dont have a single weapon over strength 5 so you arent gonna get on well against anything with a tank in... plus theres 4 fast attack options....

The pathfinder and stealth combination can be quite good though...

You have 4 Fast Attack choises. Only 3 allowed.

Also bear in mind that in V4 you won't be able to use your Shield Drones' invunrable save until your ordinary squad sinks to a single poor fellow in numbers. Majority save, you know... Too bad, you see too few drones these days.

Duh....

I totally forgot the Hammerheads. :

HEAVY
Hammerhead Tank - 200pts
- Railgun, SMS, Seeker Missile x1
- Multi-tracker, Blacksun filter, Disruption pod, Decoy launcher, Target lock

Hammerhead Tank - 200pts
- Railgun, SMS, Seeker Missile x1
- Multi-tracker, Blacksun filter, Disruption pod, Decoy launcher, Target lock

Alternatively, I can opt for Ion Cannons and get back 40pts and then I could drop all the hounds and put in an 8 man Drone Squad or shave down the Kroot altogether into just two large units, no hounds, a Rail and an Ion cannon and add this cool Monat:

ELITES (option): Kauyon Run'al Monat
Shas'vre XV8 Monat Commando - 96pts
- twin-linked plasma rifles, fusion gun
- hard-wired shield generator

This is just personal preference here, but I would suggest:

adding at least one, if not two, Crisis teams.

drop the Ethereal, or add a Shas'o with him

You need more FW's than kroot, Drop a Kroot squad for another Fw one.

Give the other HH an Ion Cannon ( will pay off, especially against marines)

Drop 2 of the hound squads and add a Gun Drone Squad ( very underestimated, but works well)

The hounds are only in there to bump the number up to 18 so that I can lose like 3-4 a turn to shooting. Even if that's happening, I burn the Hounds and maintain my shooting firebase. Kroot aren't as mobile, but they're cheap bolter fodder and trees don't stop 'em.

Uh...three...erm...DOH!

I'm on a Mac so I dont' have access to AB and crud like that (obvious stuff) always slips by me. Well, that settles that - I'll consolidate the Krrot into 2 teams and bump them up to bigger units without the hounds. Then, take any surplus and see about adding that Monat or the Gun dronb unit.

Thanks.

Trying stuff out, I can drop all the Kroot and get 2 Gun Dron units at 6 strong and make that Monat a Commander with the following:

CMDR Shas'el - 131pts
- flamer, twinlinked fusion blaster
- h/w shield generator, cntrl + 2x gun drones, target lock

That guy can deep strike and wreck vehicles or deep infantry like scouts or devestators while the drones can try to pin the same sorts of units. Plus, I'll be using a Tau flamer and that makes me a hero .... right?

lol

You don't need target lock for your shas'el, he's not in a squad.

And I admire you for dropping Kroot ( sorry Krootfans!)

You also might want to rethink the flamer, it can be really effective but chances are, he needs to take out that tank or wahtever, and get out of there, so i'd drop it if I were you.
