Good lord you really can't do a whole lot with 500, but heres my list

HQ
-Cadre
-Ethereal

Elites
-Crisisx3
-TL Plasma
-ATS

Troops
-Devilfish
-TL SMS
-Pods
-Fire Warriorsx10
-Kroot Carnivore Squadx10

Something seems fishy with it I'm not liking the devilfish, or crisis in there, but there is probably a large chance I would need to get rid of some rhinos and attempt to use the devilfish as cover+fire support. Feel like I need more kroot and fire warriors.

I think I'd go Enclave with mixed load out suits. Our bottom end really struggles to produce a fitting mixture of survivability and offense otherwise. Definitely wouldn't bring an ethereal though, there just aren't enough places to win back that lost victory point at such small point values.

Something like:

double missile Mark'O and 5 marker drones
3 burst cannon + plasma suits with 2 shield drones
2 fusion blaster + plasma suits with 2 shield drones

I'd have to do some fiddling with it, since I'm still a

Yeah enclave would probably go better, I just feel like there would be too few shots with the limited number of crisis suits as apposed to having alot of infantry idk I've actually never done a 500, but it feels like we would be outnumbered and entered into close combat very quickly, and the ethereal was for the same reasoning with the use of storm of fire max rounds of boomness, was trying to fit cadre in as well, but not enough points.

Going suits would guarantee we would be outnumbered, yes, but the survivability and mobility of the suits tends to win out over the static firepower of fire warriors. Even at 2000 points, an all suit Enclave list has a chance to win a game without losing a single unit, at smaller points I have found this easier to do.
From my experience at low point games, I have found the elite armies are the threats much more than the hordes. The hardest 500 point game I ever played was against 15 marines. Got tabled turn 2. The easiest one in contrast was against tyranids; 60 models just melted to plasma and burst cannons (it was a very thematic and awesome look fight).

Yah, I've been meaning to play more small games too. I think the next time I do it I will run only models from the battleforce to prove how great a deal it is; works way better at 1000 points though...
