You know, you&#39;re right. I

should put in some Gun Drone squads in there instead.

SUBSTITUTE
<br /

>Kroot Carnivores (12 x 7 = 84p)

- for -

Gun Drone Squadron (7 x 12

= 84p)

Total points cost remains 1999p, model count decreased by 5 (78).

I know i&#39;m right, i&#39;m always right

cos i&#39;m me!

Well, that looks more like a mechanised army to me. Oh and by

the way why dont you just modify the first post with changes instead, it makes it alot

easier.

One more thing Seeker Missiles, they may not be of much use as the

devilfishes will probably get destroyed

And they cost 10pts per shot.

I&#

039;m also saying get rid of the EMP grenades and give halve of all your fire warriors

Carbines.

Also you have a highly mobile army and then you have the broadsides

. Can I suggest changing them for another hammerhead because Broadsides arn&#39;t

mobile.

I&#39;m mostly concentrating on having the Fire Warriors mobile, and using the more static units, such as the Broadside suits, as fire support/anti-heavy units.

Do you guys think that the list is all right as it stands? I&#39;m not really asking whether or not it fits into the theme so much as whether or not you think it could be tactically effective.

I should probably cut down on the Blacksuns.

The only reason I don&#39;t want to put more Seekers on my tanks is that I know they&#39;re going to get lit up sooner or later, and so if one goes down, and it happens to have 4 Seekers on it, I&#39;ve just lost 40 points that I could have spent on more FW or Kroot or Gun Drones.

I planned on using the one FW squad with its carbines as an anti-tank squad, especially after seeing the carnage my Guardian Storm squad wreaked on a Monolith in another game. Then again, I do have enough heavy weapons in the whole army to take something down without using a squad of Fire Warriors as suicide bombers!

However, your suggestion about replacing the Broadsides for the Hammerhead might have some merit. But if I did so, I would also lose 2 Railgun shots per turn, and I would be trading one of the Twin-linked BS3 shots for a BS4 Railgun shot. Perhaps I would have the same amount of accuracy on the two shots as opposed to the four, but I would have a lot less overall firepower.

Thanks for your suggestions and comments, and I hope you come up with more! Most of this post has just been me thinking out loud about my choices.
