    More Fire Warriors. I love my fire warriors, and I love the way they can shoot up almost anything they set their sights on. One squad in an army that size isn't enough. ALSO - either four or six stealths, because apparently odd numbers are bad. Ask math people, they just are for morale checks and stuff.

    edit to avoid double post: Everyone knows what you're talking about when you say XV8 and XV88 (I think) but just say Crisis, Broadside, Stealth or whatever.

    I agree with Bacon; fire warriors are the way to go, along with more stealths.

    don't forget the crisis suits guys. I'd say field 2 or 3 squads of FW and at least 2 broadsides.

    Stealths, hammerheads, and fire warriors are all equal best.

    Crisis suits are a clear fourth.

    Kroot (with or without hounds), gun drones, the ethereal, and broadsides are all good.

    Krootox are poor.

    And that's just with the Kroot.

    Fire Warriors. In my opinion, the more fire warriors the better.

    You need ...........

    Whatever you want?

    I've seen lists with lots and not-lots of everything, really. Lots of FW's can save the day, lots of Kroot, lots of Crisis Suits ... etc. etc.

    So, really, it's up to you and how you want your army to work.

    I used this for my army.


    it's all shooting on markers. I've given my FW leaders HW target lock with markerlights, and I also play 3 tetra's. that way, my 3 broadsides and my 2 railgunned hammerheads will shoot VERY accurate. backup comes from crisis suits with twin plasma and shield generator. the leader has a missile pod and HW multy tracker plus the twin plasma. my hq crisis is armed with a plasma, fusion and missile pod, allong with a HW multy tracker.
