Default What to buy for 50 pts???

I have a question to you guys:

Imagine you build a new army list and at the end you recognize, you still have 50 points left. What would you buy for these few points?

wargear, more fire warriors or 1 more stealth suits.

You don't want to lose them, so try to use them where it counts the most...or get some not so critical wargear that could be useful.

More FWs, and if its too odd a number, redistribute the troops across more slots. Basically you are gonna need more troops in 5th ed for objective taking, and 50 pt is 5 more FWs and even more Kroot.

I would (if I didn't already) strap some photon grenades onto my take and hold fire warrior team. They are gonna need all the help they can get. Other than that drones, special issue wargear as an experiment, or like previously posted a handful of troops.

If you still have the space for it you could take a Firestorm.

Krisis Suit with missile pod, burst cannon, multitracker --> exactly 50 points

I'd say Wargear for Fire Warriors, like making one of them Shas'vre and giving him a Bonding Knife.
