    Hey man, I like you army list, it can be ver devastating and efficient if used well, and by well of course I mean using you 10 seeker missles in a well thought out and well strategically placed location to give you the advantage, but you knew that, sorry i ramble somtimes. Anyways my suggestion would be to you to keep you army the way it is, and to as well carry an extra railhead with you, because you never know when an extra 72 inch submunition or solid shot railgun could be used, and well just phase that in the best way you could, by possibly removing what you think you could lost in order to phase in the railhead, it all depends on what your facing right!? Well hope this helps:w00t:

    please dont twin link weapons on a shas'o, he already hits on a 2+, why would you need more than that?

    the squad of 6 firewarrios seems much too fragile, i think giving it any weargear, much less a shas'ui and a markerlight is not a wise choice. I suggest replacing the team with another team of sniper drones.
    All of which makes me anxious, sometimes unbearably so

    nope!!

    the 6 man firewarrior squad is the bait. They sit forward of my lines, sniping units, whilst the leader markerlights people for the seeker missiles. the enemy come roaring up to my swaud, they move back, and two devilfish shoot out from behind cover and rapid fire with my two squads..

    And what do you recommend i stick in the other hard point of my shas'o when i remove the twin linked missile pod?

    If anything you should give him a plasma rifle on top of that multi tracker, at least that way you can fire them both and have more than 2 shots, each hitting on a two plus, but that's your choice

    even the least shootiest armies can take out a unit of 6 firewarriors without having to "come roaring up to your swaud" cover or not. Hiding your devilfish untill they innevitably dont assault your squad is just wasting more turns of shooting, and leaving your firewarrior filled fish open to get deep striked next to and exploded.

    You cannot create an army assuming your opponent is going to do something.
