Drop the stim injector on the ghostkeel and give your stealth suits a drone controller - you will find the +1 BS invaluable
I also agree with the drone controller on the stealth suits, it adds a nice bonus without taking a weapons slot from whoever you have coming in on the homing beacon.
The first thing I'd do is make the following changes: Give the Commander a pair of Shield Drones, and switch the Ghostkeel's loadout to Cyclic Ion as opposed to Fusion. The list would look like this:
You are very short on numbers on the field....
.i have found that the smaller the model count, the more you're up against it this edition...that said if you are enjoying the way your list plays, focus on those elements and build on that....i like a troop gunline supported by a good 'heavy platform' followed by a decent hammer blow manta striking in to throw a cat in the pigeons....so to speak
Fet a stormsurge and your life will be the richer for it

What makes cyclic ion better than the fusion though? Since im purposing the keel for anti-tank duties, wouldnt the d3 fusion work wonders?
sabaw wrote:Firewarriors vs pathfinders. Both cool models, but both almost the same. Fire warriors get an additional armor point but pathfinders are more killy (with 3x special weapons). They have the same points, pathfinders get markerlights.
