With the new upcoming rules it&#39;d be more

beneficial to have more crisis than broadside and really you dont want a shas&#39;el,

upgrade it to a Shas&#39;o. You should still be able to fit into 1000pts if you switch

broadside with crisis

With the new rules anyone can target

broadsides if their out in the open - which they have to be to shoot (heavy weapons),

whereas Crisis can hide, zip out and shoot plus they can have a better array of weapons

(Railguns may be quality but you have put a hammerhead in the list)

Plus the

aim is to have a well rounded army so you wouldn&#39;t want too many of another type (

currently 1 hq, 3 troops, 0 elite, 1 fast attack, 2 heavy support).

SALES!!!

Ill tell you why..

Becouse im not at home im in County Kerry In southern Ireland and am working every day

Ill be back home after the summer. and the nearest shop to me is closed down so it seems

then i have to go to dublin too see the codex wich is a 5 hour drive and a waste of time

till i have the money for them and I dont think ill have much luck trying to convince my

dad to drive me down on a 5 hour drive just to look at a book he is moany sod as it is

dont want to make him worse I have to work with him!

In short thats why hehe

Tell you what i can help you out

there, just check your email sometime, and no im not gonna retype the codex cos that

would be illegal but can pretty much explain all the major aspects to it in detail (wont

do it in the forum in case they dont agree with it - even though i do not intend on

breaking the law)!

You should also look at GOD&#39;s Know your Self topic for

insight into each unit.
