    It should be 60pts per paranah, then another 5 each for fusion blasters, then another 10 each for the seeker missles, and of course the decoy launchers. How did you come up with 160 for the two of them? NM did you mean one seeker on each one or a pair on each one?

    Photon grenades are very, very useless. You are dead if they get you in CC, regardless of grenades. Disruption pod isn't useful, especially for an ionhead which can't hide inside terrain if it wants to fire. I realize you could hide it first turn and then pop out, but you could just hide it behind the cover and pop out anyway without the pods. You're better off not using it since it has skimmer rules anyway, of always glancing over 6". Carbines just aren't a good choice for firewarriors due to their limited range, a 30" range on their other standard gun is just fantastic. Other than that it looks pretty good, very well put together.

    Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.

    The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.

    I am relaying on pinning the enemy. I have tried to take as many pinning things I could (one FW with carbines, two sniper-drone teams and one gun-drone squadron). I am thinking of changing the Ion-head to a rail-head. Where should I get the points for that?

    pinning? ok I guess you're playing pinnable opponents. You could take seekers off for points, and rely on your markerlights other abilities, but I doubt you wanna do that. Cut the photon grenades first thing. You could also reduce the size of your largest FW squad or your largest drone squad. I'd say the drone squad, as they no longer have the reduced leadership on smaller squads drawback, and you have drones to spare on the devilfish and piranha.

    True that...I'm not at home, but I have updated the list a bit. I dropped the photons, the drones in that squad and the disruption pod on the rail-head....I will update this list on sunday (when I get home).

    Doubleposting again - I have now updated the armylist one final time, I can't afford the sniperdrone squads at present, so this is what it'll be....if you don't come with any suggestions now?

    Man, that is a huge number of target locks. I'm iffy on those, go ahead and use them I guess ( and tell us how they work out for you). I definately like pathfinders with railguns better than snipers, as they can be in position to fire first turn, not so with snipers. Your 140 point team is illegal, you can't have a vre and 3 ui (that's probably just a typo). I personally don't bond my guys in order to have more points to spend, but I've never bonded my guys so I can't say if it'll work.

    Overall it looks pretty good, I think you have a good combination for swarms and MEQs.
