Arrrrgh, some mod remove the points totals!!!
anyway, in a 500pts game, shas'o is too many points, especially when as kitted as you've made him. Airbursting frag is rubbish anyway. Not to mention you've gone WAY over the limit of the 3-hardpoint limit!
I would advise the following,
Shas'el, Missile pod, Plasma rifle, targetting array, hard wired multi-tracker 97pts
This guy can do a decent amount of damage, he's an independant character with JSJ (jump shoot jump incase you don't know) so being shot isn't really a worry for him.
With regard to your troops selection, this will be very dull to play, and unecessary in a 500pt game. You'll be better off with a smaller squad of firewarriors in a Warfish (the devilfish with an SMS system), and then a squad of kroot, or another small squad of firewarriors.
Troops: Fire Warriors, 6i, 60pts
Devilfish: Smart missile system, Targetting array, multitracker, decoys 120pts
Troops: Kroot: 10, 2 kroot hounds 82pts
You should be able to save enough points in this case to either get two more crisis suits, or a squad of stealth suits or something.
Elites: 3 stealth suits, 90pts
Elites: Crisis suit, twinlinked Missile pod, flamer (the flamer is just to fill the hardpoint slot with something cheap that does something, unlike the blacksun filter, which you won't use in small games), 52pts
What i've suggested totals 501pts, lose a kroot hound or something if people you play with won't let you go 1pt over. In which case they are thoroughly lame.
So if you drop you HQ back to a Shas'el and give him a bit less stuff, then you can spend around 100 pts on whatever you want. You could get another crisis suit (almost two infact), some stealthies, some kroot or some drones. All of the above options would work really well for you. For some reason though im leaning toward kroot and drones though. I think that they would both give you some more tactical options on the table.
I don't care what you say. I found a lightsaber in my garage and that makes me a Jedi
thank u guys very much i'll keep all in this in mind when i am making the army list in my next science class. ill get back 2 u guys when i have completed it
