Looks ok if you fight hordes. Why the flamer/burstcannon on the crisis suits?

If you have a MEQ army for an opponent you are going to be sorry you didn't bring any plasma.

MEQ= marine equivalent army

So he means 3+ save armies. As you have very little to deal with them, and what can deal with them will need to get too close.

I think you need to have some more Missile Pod/Plasma combos instead of the flamer/burstcannons. I like that you took them, as it's a break from the norm... but it's one that will hurt your army if you do it across the board.

Dump the flamer....no good......Why take 3 weapon choiceds were at MAX you can have two with Target Lock. Defo Plasma/missle combo works best for me.

Troops look great. I don't pair anyhthing up with a transport unless I'm using Pathfinders.

Also.....that Markerlight only can be used for your Shas'ui. But still...roll that light and make it's hit...your choices are great....I use the improved BS so you get better shots....then when you can Rapid fire em...WOOO BOY!!

Not big on the Hammerheads....I'm a suit fan....like the Broadsides.....something about +2 save Twin linked Railguns with Smart missle systems makes be get a woody.

Also....like Pirahnas....I run 6 in my list with fusion blasters and toss on Seeker missles. I use these and Anti Tank and and squad leader poppers.

What?

I like transports with troops too, gives you options at the end of the game. Also, Fish of Fury is a pretty nifty move in certain situations.
