Pathfinders with rail rifles are very helpful in pinning from a distance (get a squd of 6 or more). That's all I can think of for now.. Your army's pretty sweet.

i can second that get some pathfinders i personaly use two squads, put them on the flanks and they're quite effective at cross firering.

Also get some battles suit bodyguards for your comander he can get a bit vunerable soometimes .

You want a dedicated transport? I think the range is 36 plus it's pinning, your pathfinders are probably going to be in the same spot most of thee game unless something happens like the whole army charges at them xD. I don't think you need transportation.

Sure.... The rail rifles are 36" and you may get 3 of them in each squad. The normal guns are 18".
