What? is that list of weapons supposed to mean something?

Hmm well 4 seeker missiles on a Devilfish is abit over the top, especially as with those you are relying on your pathfinders to be effective and the devilfish not to get destroyed. So in other words the seeker missiles will be a waste of points and certainly dont merit some form of heavy support, which you are lacking.

In my opinnion 4 troop choices in a 1000 point army really shouldnt be, unless you have sufficient forces to make a well rounded army, which sadly you do not. First i would remove the markerlight from the Fire Warrior squad and i would also remove either one or two squads of Fire Warriors to put in either a Hammerhead or some Broadsides, although i would reccomend the Hammerhead.

Yeah, definately drop one of the FW squads, and drop the SM's on the Fish, not worth it IMO, get decoy launchers for it also. I'd also drop the Pathfinder team and that should give you enough points for a HH and a BS.

Get rid of pathfinders and a fw squad and get a HH and broadside. You would be creamed by IG and 'nids with your current list.

Get rid of the single plasma and put a flamer in it's place.

first, you dont need to write out each soldier in the troop choices.. It only makes it hard to read!

And on the list I wouldnt change anything as it is now.. Maybe try and push in another Elite choice by removing the human aux, and 1 fw.

drop the broadside and get another fish for the Fw and drop all the carbines in the Fw squads and its fixed perfect IMO.
