    Well...you could just use devestator squads to get more shots per model.

    Otherwise, I think its pretty much a pointless army. Your not gonna need that many lascannon shots unless your going against an armored company. Even then, that might be overdoing it. Actually, I don't see this list being effective against anything.

    One lascannon shot can kill one tank, it can also only kill one Orc/Nid/etc. Your biggest weakness would be horde armies. Your units are very small and easily overrun by numbers. Its what people call one-shot-wonder or trick army. It works very well in limited circumstances, but is unable to effectively cope with all situations. If you roll randomly for missions or fight a variety of opponents you&#39;ll find the army wouldn&#39;t have a very good win average.

    I wouldn&#39;t even want to field this against an armoured company, if they get the first turn you&#39;d really be in for it. Of course if the goal was a lascannon themed army then yeah its good might i recomend the more tactically sound missile launcher themed force.

    Those twin-linked lascannons on the Predators allow you to re-roll misses, but it doesn&#39;t count as two weapons. By my calculations, you actually have eight lascannon shots, and that&#39;s assuming you either miss the re-rolls on the TW lascannons or hit the first time with them. This list has a glaring weakness, and that is Orks, Tyranids, and other horde armies will slaughter you when they get close enough.
