i plan to use 2 - 1 with rail rifles, 1 without. that way the second squad can marker light for the first and puting them on opposite flanks will split the enemy focuse

if they ignore them thay are in trouble and if they go after one i can pull back that squad and decimate the other flank. if they go for both together i can punch a hole in there centre.

i know in practice it will not be as simple as this but that is the plan

I like having disposable devilfish flying around to do stuff anyways, so I've played with two pathfinder squads a lot.

You will find yourself hurting for firepower some games, and happy you have the lights others. I would think two squads would be better versus high end armies - necrons, marines and worse against swarm armies due to the fact you're already out 80~160 points in firepower.
