Lately I have been finding my self go from 3 pathfinder teams to 2 pathfinder teams to pathfinders with weapons because they constantly die due to their sad, so very sad 5+. At least with rifles I can hide them and then bring them out the wood works to shoot their special weapons but unfortunately the 5+ to hit with a marker light after moving out of hiding isn't going to cut it for me.
Currently I'm using my cold star to call kauyon to bring them out but I feel I'm wasting my Kauyon which my drones need more for a first turn advance. SO THIS BRINGS ME TO THE Firsight.
The Firesight costs 24 pts which is quite abit more than a pathfinder but that 2+ in cover makes them really resilient to deep striker bolder fire. On top of that they can move with a 4+ to hit which is great and 3 wounds ain't too shabby. The thing is I find my self only ever needing one marker light counter so a 3+ to hit for a light is great. On top of that they fill out my elite slots really nicely to spam vanguard detachments.
Currently I'm running two pathfinder squads and marker drones deepstriking and I constantly find my drones doing the back work in late game as my pathfinders generally die in the first 2 turns.
What I want to try out is less deep strike elements as I need less drone controllers and throwing out 2 pathfinders and 2 firesights to see if I have more success.
