drop the HH and bonding for a single XV8 with plasma rifle and fusion blaster and multitracker. And the points that are over get 3 stealths or another group of FW!

you will have to kindly ask any opponent you might face to use nothing with more than thirteen armour. though im pretty shure this wont be a problem as it is only 500pts.

What if some marines or witch hunters decide to take a landraider? Then there would be no possible way for me to win, because the landraider or any other 14 armour would tear me apart with no chance of being killed.

500 pts dude

i havent yet to see a land raider in a 500 pt game and if one is there the fusion blaster gets 2 d6 when within 6 inches, so just run up and SHOOT

Correct me if I'm wrong but the land raider is about 150-200 pts so if they get one they skimp on something else probally men so don't worry about a land raider be cause you will probally out number them any way. Just hide from the land raider if they use one.

u dont often see tough vehicles in a 500 point game, if u do just avoid them. lkight vehicles can easily be taken down with pulse fire. personally i think its pretty bad sportsmanship using tanks in 500pt games

a lad raider is 250pts, thats half their army and they pretty much cant get 2 troops and an HQ for 250pts, IMO drop the HH (super as it is) and get 2 'Fishes, swap the plasma rifle for a fsion on the commander and you'll have all the tankbusting you need.
