Default Farsight's Retinue

Just curious: what do you people usually take with Farsight when it comes to his team of XV8's?

I'm considering purchasing Farsight and I was thinking that it might be best to run his quad as a mix of Burning Eye and Sunforge suits. Is this a good idea or should I run one specific type of suit for this unit? If so I'd probably run all Burning Eyes.

its a one trick poney in expense at times, but you could. Running burst cannons, missile pods alone would hurt your typical light infantry.

Respectable against marines.

Times like this cyclic ion blasters make alot of sense.

Yeah, it's a Special Weapons system. >

I just figured Burning Eyes might be good. Though then again, they are getting a BS4 instead of BS3 so it probably would make more sense to take two weapons instead of TLing.

Considering Farsight's CC abilities and his need to get close to do a lot of damage, Helios might not be a bad idea. ;D
