relatively inefficient, twin linking bs5 isnt really necessary, you'd save a fair few points by dropping the 'O to an 'El and equipping TA, PR, MP, HW-BSF, HW-MT

Same with bodyguards, you're paying a premium to give them access to special equipment and then not taking any, so either give them HW-MTs and TAs or keep the loadout as it is and take them as an elite choice instead and join the commander to the unit

I don't like MLs on FWs as if you move (to hit RF range) you're snap firing, they can't use the token themselves as the ML isn't networked and it has to fire at the same target as the FWs which may cause wastage if you're either targetting a vehicle which the FWs cant hurt, or an infantry squad that no other unit would fire at, you could use the points instead on a shas'vre to boost their LD, fish is fine - I assume you're going to use it for cover for the suits/tetras

I've not used tetras, but do they fit in with the rest of your army? the space marines cant use the tokens and the suits are high enough BS that they don't need them, and the broadsides are pretty damned accurate anyway

you can't take the flamer and MT as you're using 4 hardpoints (MP, MP, Fl, MT) just drop it, they should be staying at range anyway, the flamer is there for the d3 overwatch hits should something charge, try and fit in a shas'vre with HW-BSF

no drones make XV88's cry, only one needs the BSF, sure the unit is cheap, but they will die to any dedicated fire

Don't know much about SM's so I'm not going to break it down per unit, but be aware that in a 2k list, you only have 3 troops choices, a sensible opponent is going to wipe these out as a priority in any objective game, the LRC is going to be a massive fire magnet as well

Again, not going to comment on the SM component, but it looks decent overall

what's the exact loadout of your deathrain suits? I can't seem to get a unit of 3 to get 142 points

3 x XV8, tl-mp, flamer
+TL upgrade with HW-BSF
149pts

or 3 x XV8, tl-mp, BSF
138pts
