I think that this list you have come up with is pretty good. Some of the changes that I would make would be making sure that your HQ, the Shas'el would have a Shield Generator. That could protect him from power weapons that those cheesy space marine's might have (and I underlined the word cheesey for a reason). I also think that you could use a few more stealth tems instead of some of the crisis suits ;D. And thank you for asking my opinion on something.. I feel loved...

1 6 man Stealth team is enough. Any more is a waste.

Would you not want to give Broadsides (at least one of them) a shield gen. for added survivability? Or give one of them a couple of shield drones? Seems like Multi-Tracker isn't going to be used that much if the Broadsides just sit at the back demolishing stuff. I'd think you'd worry more about not letting guys get within 24" of the broadsides, and give them some added form of protection. No?

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ask you specifically, I was just asking if that was generally a good idea or not. I'm really new at this.

Ok, we'll start off by naming things you shouldn't be using. 1- Shas'El, a Shas'O is better in every way possible. 2- Kroot, they are useless combat units for your shooting army. 3- Fusion Blasters, you need to get into an uncomfortable range with these and you would be better off with a Missile Pod/Plasma Rifle combo.

That's my advice, take it or not.
