First I suggest you remove the Ethereal. If he dies in such a small battle you risk a lot with Price of Failure.

Second I advice in changing you Crisis configurations. Three weapons and only one of them firing a turn isn't really good. Drop one of the weapons and give them a Multi-tracker instead. The Target Lock is also a waste. In this small battle you will never need to split your fire.

Finally I suggest to use the leftover points for more Fire Warriors and if this is not a 40k in 40 minutes scenario you have to buy a Shas'El as a HQ.

Good luck!

I'd suggest a mode flexible army, I'd also suggest you neer play 400 pts non combat patrol games

for this game though I'd go more like

HQ
Shas'el
Fireknife
85pts

Troops
20 Kroot
140pts

9FW
-Bonded
-Devilfish

more flexible and has moreopportunities, 405pts.

I would definatley change the list accordingly, as I am playing in Defence of Ichar IV as well with my Tau.* Here is what I am using:

HQ
Shas'el Aunat (Get it? lol) - Plasma Rifle, Burst Cannon, Multi-Tracker - 81pts

Elites
1 x XV8 Crisis Battlesuits - Plasma Rifle, Burst Cannon, Multi-Tracker - 61pts

1x XV8 Crisis Battlesuits - Plasma Rifle, Flamer, Multi-Tracker - 57pts

Troops
Fire Warrior Team [10] - 2 W/ Carbine - 100pts

Fire Warrior Team [10] - 2 W/ Carbine - 100pts

Total = 399pts

By changing the weapons on the Crisis Suits, I am able to add in a tasty Shas'el to add to the fire power.* The Blinding Spear Configuration given above is the perfect anti-infantry combo and since you are playing with a 400 point, infantry is going to be the majority of all armies.

Also by splitting up the the two crisis suits into different units, they are able to put down the hammer on two seperate units as well as hide in cover more efficiently.* Although many people frown upon using Flamers on Crisis suits, I say that flamers are the perfect gift for anything with a BS of 3 or less!!!! (yes, I play guard as well, and flamers are pretty much essential!)

Have fun and good luck with the campain-thingy!!!!

Against Tyranids, Khanaris doubts anyone will fault you for using the flamer. Crispy like a poisonous chicken. Watch out for fleet-of-claw when you use it, though.

I cant really fault you for the flamer, hell its probaby one of the only matchups you'll use it in.

but I would mself give one squad the full half carb's and onefull rifles or find some points and switch one squad for Kroot, just to add some more options.

Hmmm....I don't know where I could take out points without removing a Crisis Suit and removing some Firewarrirors...I guess you could make each fire warrior squad 6 strong, remove the flamer suit...then maybe you might have enough points for some Kroot...

its not the best for balance but I was thinking of dopping one FW squad to 6 w/ carbs for mobility and having 20 kroot

its abit light on FW then though , the most balanced way would be to simply remove the flamer suit, swap one FW team for kroot and bond the remaining 11 FW

yah, that would work quite nicely, but i'm still not a fan of Kroot : I suppose if you are a fan that would be the way to go (number of models=more models to waste!)
