Welcome to Librarium Online!
HQ 1: Shas'el
(MP, CIB, TA, HWMT) Total: 92 points
Nice multi purpose commander, can pop light vehicles, GEQ, and even MEQ/TEQ with CIB
Elite 1: 3 Stealth Suits
(Burst Cannons) Total: 90 points
Small stealth unit with high damage potential, infiltrates, and is easy to hide
Elite 2: Monat Deathrain
(TL:MP, Flamer) Total: 47 points
Deathrain hangs around commander and Fire Warriors using MPs to kill stuff at range, then frys anything that gets to close.
Troops 1: 6 Fire Warriors
(6 Pulse Carbines) Total: 60 points
Small, foot mobile Fire Warrior unit, acts as a screen for HQ and Deathrain.
Troops 2: 10 Kroot
(Kroot Rifles) Total: 70 points
Works wit stealth team and Piranhas + drones to act as a foward fire base
Fast Attack 1: 2 Piranhas
(FB, TA) Total: 140 points
Hunts enemy hard targets, and mitigates assault. Drones can be used to support stealth/kroot, or as a delay/speed bump to enemy fast assaulters/heavy weapons teams.
Army Total: 499 points
One nice thing about this list is that the piranhas, stealth team, and kroot set up late, so you get to have good positioning for 4 units(Piranha drones are a unit too). I was thinking maybe I would split the Piranha into 2 teams of 1, but I like the LD benefits a larger drone squad has over 2 teams of 2. Also, it is possbile to lose one piranha and lose no VPs.
What do you all think?
Looks like you got it all punched out.
You have 4 STR7 shots a turn to deal with light transports, 2 str 8 melta shots for heavier gear, and a truck load of str 5 shots for anti-infantry, 10 of which can pin. Not a bad list if you ask me. You have a little bit of everything, and the potential of coming across a lot of tanks in 500 points is very little, maybe one tank and a transport, but not much else.
Thanks, the only thing I'm concerned about is not having of anti MEQ. I know all that massed firepower will do some damage, as would those MPs, but my only low AP stuff is the 2 Fusion guns and possibly the CIB. I know that pinning may save my hide occasionally, but I wonder if I have enough dakka to kill MEQ fast assaulters.
After all, I could always exchange one of those piranhas for a nice helios. I could even use that 70 points to make that CIB into a PR and the other 65 points to get 2 more stealth suits. But I do like the idea of having 2 vehicles, who are immune to bolter fire from the front, in a 500 point battle. Call me beardy I guess.

This would be beardy.
Shas'el, MP, BC, TA, HWMT = 85
6x Firewarriors = 60
6x Firewarriors = 60
Ionhead, Burst Cannon, MT, Decoy = 130
Railhead head, Burst Cannon, MT, Decoy = 165
Total = 500
It was 145 points in the old codex, now its only 130 since the Ion cannon is only 15 points now. So yeah, Ionheads rock, because they are soooo cheap.
