To give a example of this I want to take Commander Rymr from forge world as my shas'o, I was wondering if i will be able to take another battle suite and make him a hq as well

Yes. While running 2 'Os isn't very fluffy, there's no rules to stop it. And an 'O IC, be it Rmyr, Shadowsun or Shovah, leading a cadre with an 'el 2nd-in-charge is a fluffy way to bring in more suits.

If you are playing a normal 40K game using the FOC, then yes you only have 3 elite choices which translates to 3 teams of Crisis trios and/or Stealth teams. It is possible to hit 3k pts in a normal game by fully taking up all slots and upgrading everything; you might even reach 3.5k!

3k and above and no FOC is an Apocalypse game. In that type of 40K game, you just make up the points of your army in any way you wish, and have fun.

Whatever Khathecleric said; but also not that the FOC requires you to field 1 HQ unit and allows up to 2; you HAVE to field 2 Troops but are limited to a maximum of 6, and Fast Attack, Heavy Support and Elite are all 0-3, respectively.

So, the smallest legal force contains 1 HQ unit and two troop choices; the biggest legal force using a single FOC contains 2 HQs, 6 Troops, 3 Elite, 3 FA, 3 HS.

Cheers,
-Bone

With the new rules try making Crisis suits your Shas'o body guards and give them all hardwired target locks so all suits in the unit can shoot at something else (no more target priority checks) this will cut down on VP someone can get from you in a Annihilation game.

This will also free up some Elite slots.
