It feels like an expensive way to cram a Broadside into a Deathrain's role. Not to mention that you've got a Victory Point and HQ slot used up in making this work.

This doesn't seem bad, but I feel like that's kind of a waste of hammheads just being a wall. I feel the key to suits is using cover to your advantage. Maybe advance them in front, JSJ tactics all over, and have the riptides(s) soak up shots/attacks with the hammerheads providing fire support? For our Full suit army to competitive I think we may have to go this rout, adding in a few vehicles, in order to stay competitive.
Also starting to look at stealth teams with more consideration. As of now I have a BC suit team to throw out mass shots, but I'm thinking they might be more useful with a burning eye or helios loadout. The stealths could just take their BCs and some gun drones and accomplish the same mission with infiltrate and awesome cover saves (which'll help out the normally weak drones).

However im stuck now because I can't decide between TE allies to bring in a 4th hammerhead and a Iridium'O or two 5 man stealth teams. Hoping to use the list on Wednesday versus eldar.
