Default crisis suits setups

hey guys in my HQ squad my body gaurds can take special issue weapons also, so could I technically run 3 airbursts?? I play a lot of horde armies, so I thought this would be a Great weapon to use. you think this could be a decent Idea, when mixed with, traget lock I think this would be a decent setup, what are your opinons??

this is what my HQ looks like:
Shas'o
air burst, stimulants, Cyclic Ion Blaser, and a multi tracker
body guards
Air burst, stimulants, and target locks

what you guys think, maybe vs a non-horde army that might not work but vs a horde I think this would be a pretty good run.

Special Issue is maximum ONE of each system PER ARMY! Read the codex.

Yep, just check the codex. I made that mistake once, too.

I always thought that it could run the risk of being a little OP if you could take so many frag projectors. That many large blast templates on the table? Think about it.

Used to be in an Apolocyse game, that you could take the special issue weapons. Did this get changed with Acop Reloaded? Standard Crisis couldn't carry them, but your entire command staff could, and you could have multiple HQ units, not just 2. >

No. What I am saying is that my Air Support has lots of Ground Cadre.

If a Land Raider dies to a rail gun, and no one was around to see it, does the kill point still exist?

Yup, SI restrictions are out the window in Apoc. The only thing stopping me from spamming IG-esque templates on Shas'vres out the wazzoo is the friggin point cost; I've already spent most of it to bring a horde of aircraft... :P

I think PR+AFP is rather tasty for the full Farsight squad... >
