    ok, your elite units are my one problem with this list. the buring eye shas'ui just seems worthless. I think you have a solid idea of what the firestorm suit is good for though. You have the ion heads and your commanders to take out MEQ units (especially if you gave one a CI, this leaves your elite slots to help with the lighter vehicles, and take out massed infantry.

    I also like what you did with the minned firewarriors and kroot, i think that will serve you well. A bunch of people are going to start crying about how you arn't using railheads, and how railheads are so much better than ion heads, and how they hate you but i think this is a pretty solid army list- just maybe rethink your elite slots a little bit.
    All of which makes me anxious, sometimes unbearably so

    I think it is very balanced, you have in my oppinion leaned towards the favour of taking down infantry (of all armor ranges) the ionhead for heavy inf, the burst cannon battle suits for light, and the large number of smaller fire warrior units to spread fire. But i the tank hunting pirahnas they get the thumbs up, as they cover the area your army might lack in, high AV tanks.

    Are you fielding all the battle suites as seperate units btw?

    Hey, i was gonna do this section by section with quotes and all, but the way you formatted it was hurting my eyes and my brain so I am starting from scratch :yes:

    Personally i think you have your Elites and Heavy sections flipped around in what you feel their roll on the battlefield is.

    As far as I'm concerned, XV8's are perfectly designed and organised for taking our MEQ's and terminators and such. They have access to the perfect anti MEQ weapons and should thus be utilised in that fashion.

    Railhead hammerheads have the ability to take on all the same armoured tanks as Ion heads, but can also use the submunitions shots to wipe out huge swarms of infantry.

    So they changes i would make to your list would be the following.

    HQ: Perfect keep as is.

    Elites: Switch out the burstcannons for missile pods and let em kill those MEQ's
    Give the Burning eye a second weapon system and a multitracker, it will give him more shots and make him more deadly.

    Heavy: Change the Ion heads for Railheads.

    Personally i would also like to see some kroot hounds on your kroot squads. You could get the points for the kroot hounds and railheads by dropping a couple of those "I have tissue paper for armour" pirahna's.
    Pirahnas are okay, but they can get killed by a bolter. You probably are sinking too many points into three models.

    So my changes would make it look something like this.

    Shas'El MP PR TA HWMT
    Shas'El FB PR TA HWMT

    XV8 Missile Pod/Plasma Rifle MT
    XV8 Missile Pod/Plasma Rifle MT
    XV8 Fusion Blaster/Plasma Rifle MT

    6 x FW's
    6 x FW's
    6 x FW's
    6 x FW's

    Fast attack
    Pirahna FB TA

    Heavy
    Railhead BC MT DL
    Railhead BC MT DL

    Broadsides x 2

    I don't have the exact points, but i think something like this would just help make you much more balanced and able to take on anything.

    Hope that helped
