    Well, with the new codex you could make a army built around Pathfinders, Seeker Missiles and Markerlights, but I don't like it, currently Pathfinders don't work so well IMO.

    Due to the great new rules for markerlights pathfinders on paper look good, BUT there only toughness 3 4+ save models at the end of the day and you can guarantee any decent enough player will go out of his way to kill those 6-8 models with no real difficulty.
    I think In the last codex they were hard to use but now due to the many advantages ML's can have over ANY enemy there just not safe, public enemy number 1 I'm afraid :cry:
    If you want markerlights drones In FW squads and the skryay are probably safer and maybe the new sniper drones?
    FLAME ON!

    I agree. Markerlighs are soooo much improved now (when the new codex comes out) that anything is with one is going to have an entire army's firepower shooting at them.
    There once was a Lord named Vlad,
    Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
    He killed and he maimed,
    He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
    And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
    (special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)

    But of course, it's either pathfinders and then paying for a 30 point Shas'ui in Fire Warrior squads, and thats not counting Marker Drones.

    But then you also end up with a Devilfish that dosen't have much of a use in the end...

    but in the new codex it will help your deepstriking units! and equip the DF with seekermissiles and 2 SMS and you got a decent tank!

    For how many points thought?

    Plus a Devilfish with most of that gear and a BS4 Fire warrior squad + Ethereal will be so much more effective than an Empty Devilfish.

    IMO
