what is the significance of the 2 pulse carbines? Im thinking that you want all the range you

can get on the FW im thinking that maybe you should drop the stealth suits and etheral and

get another crisis suits and a shas'el but and bump up those FW squads but im not sure if

theres more points left over becuase im at school and i dont feel like doing the math

You shoud cut the ethereal out for small games and use the left over points to buy some more stelth suits or mabey even a cheap crisis suit.

I like to follow the force organization Chart.


Besides, I alredy glued the FWs together.

Drop the Etheral and the Stealth suits and spend your remaining points on a Shas'el...he's better than an Etheral in small games...

I like stealth teams. The etheral was just to save points. Besides, I was thinking of cutting the crisis squad and replacing them with a Broadside.

drop the stealths, one FW team and the Etheral and get a Squad of kroot (20 man), a shas'El fireknife and another fireknife suit.

and if youre not going to listen to advice, why post?

Sorry. I really love stealth teams though... Oh well. I'll include them in my 1000pt army... Hmm... Kroot... I don't have anything against the crisis suits either... I'll give the list a shot.

yeah, theyre cool, but not the most effective in small battles where there is very little support for them and the crisis are very neccecary so they cant go for stealths unfortunately :P.

thanks for listening to the advice though, f youre not sure you'll like it find someone to play and proxy the models for about 5 games and see if you like it, then come ask us what you did wrong

Default Re: Need Acvice on 500pt Army List.

Here:

HQ: Ethereal Caste Member
Troops: 2 teams of 12 FWs (shas'ui, bonded)
Heavy Support: HH Gunship (Railgun, Smartmissles, MT)

Exactly 500 pts and the submunition makes up for lack of elietes.

Oh, and the reason for the HH is 'cause you all know that 500pt SM armies have predators in them.
