Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just sat down with the codex two days ago and have leafed through it a couple of times (as well as read some on this forum). I am not even sure these are legal configurations or if I have computed the points correctly. My notes are added below the list.
Command - 97
Troops - 239
9x Kroot Carnivores
4x Kroot Hound
Elite - 209
3x Crisis Battle Suit
2x Fusion Blaster
2x Plasma Rifle
Team Leader (Shas'vre)
Cyclic Ion Blaster
Fast Attack - 145
5x Path Finders
Heavy Support - 310
2x Hammerhead Gunship
Grand Total: 999 Points
1) People seem against the Cyclic Ion Blaster, I added to the crisis team because it fits well with the ranges of the teams weapons and should make them more versitile.
I don't know. I see this working very well and being able to deal with a variety of threats... but I have never even touched a warhammer piece so I will let you guys be the judge of that. Thanks in advance for any help or flames (before I make my purchase!) .

Hello and welcome
here's what i personally think you needa do...
drop the shaper and the armour saves from the kroot and 4 firewarriors, and get another 10kroot w/ 5hounds squad
drop the targetting array from your Shas'el (BS4 with pathfinders on the field is fine)
make your elites either Fireknife(plasma and missle pod and multi-tracker) or Deathrain(twin linked missle pod and targetting array)
any spare points after that, put into more elites
(i would also swap 2 railheads for 2 broadsides in a 1000pts game, but thats just cuz i don't have any hammerhead models )
I have made a few changes based on your suggestions and then realized that I am making a big mistake with my commander. With the new IC rules what would you suggest?
sorry, i don't know what you are refering to?
Independant Charecter (how they can now be targeted very easily)Should I spend points giving him a body gaurd or shield drones? Maybe iridium armor?
drones are good at soaking up shots, and body gaurds are good too, but both are pricey.
i suggest getting another team of elites and sticking him with them in the first turn
Thank you for all the help. Your ideas make a lot of sense . I gave you some rep for your time. Time for me to place an order and get painting!
make sure you carefully think about your colour scheme
i bought my models and just wanted to play, so didn't think 2 much about a colour scheme, and ended up just doing the generice Vermin/Vomit brown colour scheme
they look great yeah, but i regret not doing something personalised
