Here is a list I've been wanting to try out.

HQ: 359
Shas’el, TA, Cyclic ion blaster, Burst canon, HWMT, Stimulant injector = 98

Shas’el, TA, Plasma rifle, Missile pod, HWMT
+2Bodyguard, Plasma rifle, Missile pod, TA, HWMT = 261

Elites: 321
3 suits, Plasma rifle, Missile pod, MT = 186

3 suits, Twin-linked flamer, Missile pod = 135

Troops: 322
12 kroot+2 krootox = 154

12 kroot +4 hounds = 108

6 fire warriors = 60

Fast attack: 451
Devilfish, DP, MT, flechette discharger = 105
7 pathfinders, 3 rail guns = 124

2 piranhas, fusion blasters, DP, Ta = 150

6 gun drone squadron = 72

Heavy support : 545
2 broadsides, TA,Team leader, HWDC+1Shield drone = 180

2 broadsides, TA,Team leader, HWDC+1Shield drone = 180

1 hammerhead, Railhead, MT, Flechette discharger, smart missile, DP = 185


1998




This is the most updated version of the list. The general strategy is to cover my broadsides with the Gun drone squad and deny assaults or hold objectives with the Kroot+krootox team. All the Crisis suits go Deepstrike while the kroot infiltrate and the piranhas drop their gun drones far in the ennemy lines. The FWs just hide in the fish now.

Your thoughts on this would be most appreciated. I know most of you will say Krootox are not suited for competition but I tend to think that with good cover and wound allocations, one can make the most out of kroots by adding one of those beasts to the mix.
Share your opinion!

I dropped the idea of using the Fish of Fury tactic with my kroot+krootox in favor of a stronger, more static unit merging the two previous ones.
I dropped the second fish for the same reason and added a 2 man strong squad of FireKnives (Plasma rifle, Missile pod, MT).

Let me know what you think of the result.

I'd drop the Shas'O to a Shas'el and get a TA and drop the vectored retro-thrusters.

I don't like the large unit of FW, I'd suggest a 6 man squad.

The HWMT on the broadsides is a bit useless. Who really needs an extra few S5 AP5 shots and the railgun on the same target?

I'd suggest dropping the Gun drones for another unit of path finders, you should have points available with the above suggestions.

Thank you for your time and comment Savage! The HWMT on the broadsides indeed was silly and bothered me for a while. On the other hand, I don't really like having to invest in a second fish to make the addition of the second Pathfinder squad fits. I thought of including more markerlight instead (By dropping the Rail rifles), but I believe the real advantage of a second PF squad is to be able to target multiple targets. Anyway, check the first list if your intressted to see what I sill field in my next game.

I applied the changes you proposed more accuratly in the list just above your post.

Thank you again and if anyone as an opinion on the list, please share!
