Take FWs and Dfish backed up by the Stealths. If you have Seekers on your dfish take the Pfinders, backed up with mpod crisis and the railhead if you have any pts left over. We can get more specific if you know what theyre playin with

Bad combination! but I'll help you anyway ;D


As it is only a 500 point game I would recommend using as many fire warriors and infantry units as possible and only using one vehicle (probably hammerhead) Fire warriors are excellent ork killers so use them to full advantage.

I agree with tau-killer out shoot him en-mass
Loads of FW and stealths For max death
30 FW (split into 3 squads)- 300 pts
6 stealth- 190 and to fill points the stealth leader is a 'vre who is commading the CP

Start the stealth close (infiltrate) and move back as they need to with the jump pack to stay away from harm, the burst cannons should take out the trucks easy and leave the orcs to march slowly towards you during and as they are runing shoot the living daylights out of them, hopefully there won't be many orcs left by the time they get to your line

"no armor" rules tends to make me think you'll be seeing a battle wagon full of boys. Otherwise, what's the point of no armor rules? Take a Hammerhead in that case, but keep the points tight (ie, multi-tracker & decoy launchers and that's it).

Otherwise, leave your Crisis at home and take Firewarriors for maximum volume. I would favor firewarriors in this case over XV15's too simply because of the speed and amount of shots you'll get and how few casualties you'll feel in return if you lose a model or two, compared to stealths. However, a crisis or two may be neccessary to bust armor with missile pods, so possible some twinlinked pods for that roll.

And of course, Kroot are always an option, but you don't have them it seems.

Firewarriors x 12; Shas'ui; Fish; DL (215)
XV8 Shas'ui; Twin-linked Missile Pods; Flamer -or- TL
XV8 Shas'ui; Twin-linked Missile Pods; Flamer -or- TL
Hammerhead; Railgun; BC; MT; DL; TL (170)

Otherwise, replace the XV8's with a bare squad of Firewarriors for 30 inch ranged fire support (which is actually a good idea)

Firewarriors x 12; Shas'ui; Fish; DL (215)
Firewarriors x 11; Shas'ui (120)
Hammerhead; Railgun; BC; MT; DL (165)

ah however these rules are for a campaign not for just a single match there are about 8 people in it.
Also the person who im playin did not make the rules(GW staff did)so i dont expect a BW but deep strikeing stealth hiting the back armour will do (i think)bit risky though
Aswell 12 FW can re roll moral checks and a squad of crisis (2) can re roll reserves! (battle honhers)
he thinks im going to use a mech army if thats any help?

i think that 30 FW and stealths might work but maybe sum deathrain crisis suits!
