Elysian Drop troop army?

Dont sweat the sentinels overly much(though capping the one with the device that helps out deepstrikers is a good idea), as they die rapidly enough. Worry a lot about the demo charges...keep any suits you have in cover, and remember, burst/flamers are your friends. Also, stay spread widely, on the basis that he probably has flamers too, this is especially important for your kroot...they'll probably die regardless, but you want them to soak as much as possible first.

Keep your hammerhead's rear armor against the edge of the map or impossible terrain...or at least close enough that the slightest scatter will kill it. A fusion to the rear is death.

i would gear my army more towards killing horde, but I need a take on all comers list. I could be fighitng anything in the wh40k book, except of course, Dark eldar. But thnxs for the advice, and wsh me luck this sat. because this tourneys gonna be a hard fought on at that. But if i win, I'll see if i can enter this list in the " Calling all tourney winners" thread * *

Oh and yeah, i fought a version of his drop troop army once with my plague marines. Thank goodness thought that his melta bombs scattered onto terrain that killed him. Hopefully i'll get as lucky if i fight him this time.
btw Khanaris, thnxs for editing my title, It wont happen again :P

I feel flamers are underrated in general. Also, the firestorm suit(burst, MT, MP) is surprisingly useful in a take all comers sort of list.

Yeh the firestorm can be really sweet sometimes. I took it to battle a few times and loved it versus orcs

Guards are almost the same
