Default How many fire warriors?

I was just wondering how many fire warriors your all use in 1000 points and 1500 points and what you think is a good number.

it depends what style of play you do and what kind of army you have, but in my mechanized tau force I always use 2 full squads of firewarrior in devilfish, which aren't enough to win the game on their own but are enough to change the tide of a battle. I always try to move them together to form an ultimate FoF with both devilfish, not much is going to walk out of 48 pulse rifle shots alive. ^-^
My 40k armies:

Tau- 2000pts.
space marines- 500pts.
tyranids- 200pts. (battle for mccrage )
Lost and the damned- 300pts. (just started)

This all comes down to personal preference, and what type of army you are playing.

With a mechanised force, in a thousand points, I will have 3 Squads of 6 in a devilfish. This works quite well for me, as i find having smaller squads to be more enjoyable then having fewer larger squads. In 1500Pt's, i would go for 4 squads of 6 in a devilfish.

With out mech, have maybe 3 squads of 8, or 3 of 12 in a thousand points battle, or having 4 squads of 8-12 in a 1500 point battle. Try to aim for 1/3 of your army to be firewarriors, unless you have something else planned (more suits, tanks, Broadsides, whatever).

You cant really pick a 'good' number, as any number is good as long as you know what you are doing with them.

In a 1000 pt game I typically use 12. In 1500 points 24. That's for a mech/hybrid army.

3 squads of 8, and two of 11, the latter two in a Devilfish. THats my standard 1500 pointer. My 1000 has either 2 Fish squads, or one fish squad and 2-3 8man squads on foot. Up to 2000 points, Im tempted to increase my footslogger squads to 10to 12.

"What warriors of men can stand beside the Space Wolves! The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour. They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."
