drop the FW squads to plain 12men+'ui and go for fireknife on the crisis as its just as versatile but more stable and drop the HQ down to 'El for enough points for a 'Fish for one squad and swap the other for 20kroot, drop the RR to make the HH turret a Railgun and drop 1 seeker and the photon grenades on the PF for an MT and DL+TL, fixed .

should end up like :

HQ
-Shas'El: Fireknife
-85pts

Elites
-Crisis team
-3 Fireknifes
-195pts

Troops
-Firewarriors(12x): Shas'ui
-Devilfish
-DL
-215pts

-20 Kroot
-140pts

Fast Attack
-Pathfinders(6): Shas'ui
-Devilfish
-DL
-167pts

Heavy Support
-Hammerhead:Rail, Smart missile system,MT,TL,DL
-165pts

3 Seekers
-30pts

997pts total

Just for the record, the fireknife is a multi-squad configuration. This is how it's employed: Shas'ui w/ plasma rifle, multi-tracker, missile pod, hard-wired drone controller with two gun drones; 2 Shas'ui with plasma rifle, multi-tracker, missile pod, bonded. Now with the current drone rules, the controller is probably not the best idea.

That said, dont' worry about adding the DF unless you have no money issues. At 1000pts, it's not likely you'll need to be mounted in a transport facing the armies you say you'll be facing. They likely won't be bringing anything terribly nasty at that level anyhow.

With the Crisis suits, the burst cannon/flamer is good against the nids but the burst cannon/fusion is good agaisnt both. This will allow a versitility in taking on big guys, but the Fireknife mod is always a mid-line, optimized choice. I'd stick with the Rail on the Hammerhead too. That submunition shot is great against all opponents and guided by Pathfinder markerlights, it ignores cover by the new v4 FAQ. I'd also recommend dropping the Bonding and Photon grenades on the FWs. You'll be amazed at how many points you get back.

I dont know what GW thinks it is, but when more than half the internet thinks its PR,MT,MP then it is .

on the contrary I think the devilfish is immenently neccecary, it allows us a level of mobility and tactical flexibility most armies at this points levell wont be atching and when you controll movement you controll the game, it also allows for keeping FW safe in an armoured shell from combat units until they are gone if need be.

I agree the DF is a great idea, but it sounds as if he's got a fixed set of models to use for this army, and only 1 DF which needs to go for the PFs if he's taking those.

i was thinking of dropping the PFs for Kroot

16 Kroot with 7 Kroot hounds and 1 Krootox

is that a wise idea?

Dropping the PF for the kroot might not be a bad idea. Since you don't have any fishes for your FW you could give one of yourFW squads the DF instead

Kroots good/ Hounds okay/ Krootox stink

if you do go for 20 kroot and 4 hounds, krootox are horrible, read the stickies.

But I'd advise on just buying a fish, I dont know where an la got fixed models from, he just said he was new just buy a fish, save up some pocket money or something, you'll need fishes anyway :P
