   2x Hammerhead Gunship,Railgun Two Burst Cannons; Blacksun Filter


Troops: Fire Warrior
  4x10 Fire Warrior, 100 pts each total 400pts

Total Roster Cost: 1999
This is the list i use when i have to play with people who doesn't let me use IA goodies...
I will also post the list i use with IA goodies after this one.
I use the pathfinders devilfish for the 2 of my troops to protect them and deploy them fast in the battlefield.
I use ethereal because this summer with my play testing i saw that the re-roll of failed moral checks( no idea why when i need the snake eyes i have when rolling to hit or to wound can never have them instead i get 6's and 5's) is really worth 50 points plus if eventually die and you get preferred enemy its a huge boost for the army.

If i know im going to play with guy who has flyers i just take out one of the fw teams and add an Aegis defense line with a quad-gun.


So list number 2.

      1 Devilfish

Troops: Fire Warrior
   10 Fire Warrior, 180 pts
      1 Devilfish

Troops: Fire Warrior (10#, 100 pts)
   10 Fire Warrior,

Fast Attack: Tetra Scout Speeder Team (IA) (1#, 55 pts)
   1 Tetra Scout Speeder Team (IA), 55 pts ; Targeting Array x1; Disruption Pod; High Intensity Markerlight x1; TL Pulse Rifle x1; Scout; Forward Observer; Marker Beacon;

Fast Attack: Tetra Scout Speeder Team (IA) (1#, 55 pts)
   1 Tetra Scout Speeder Team (IA), 55 pts ; Targeting Array x1; Disruption Pod; High Intensity Markerlight x1; TL Pulse Rifle x1; Scout; Forward Observer; Marker Beacon;



Heavy Support: Hammerhead Gunship (155 pts each total 310)
  2x 1 Hammerhead Gunship,  Railgun;Targeting Array; Two Burst Cannons; Blacksun Filter;

The diference here is that im using 2x tetras that can move around 12" and then can put 4xmarkerlights at BS4 for 55 points, plus they can have one TL shot of our most common weapon. So 4xstatic pathfinders with bs3 for 48 points or fast moving vehicle with Jink and4 ML at BS4 no need to think about the answer.

O yes I forgot that each of them have marker beacon to help you deploy your deep strike units.( The only people who let me use them when I also used the marker beacon he told me - ok next time you cant use them anymore with me. )
As you can see on both of my lists I dont use Broadsides although i got 5 of them, the reason is that after they took the target lock of the suits i find them not so useful :( if they had the same weapon profile as the hamerhead rail gun I would definitely used them.

Tell me what do you think guys and I hope you like my lists.

PS sorry for the long post. :)
