too few units, your main scoring units consist of 10 man wich really isnt enough. sure 5 man paladins can be made scoring but you will roll a 2 on the average for grand strategy, leaving 1 point of it unused. better get the strike squads to 10 man each and get a unit of purifiers or termionators

also long range firepower would be needed, a vindicare is fine but as long as the vindicare is your only long range anti vehicle it will get targeted and shot down really fast.

You need to trim some points off your list. Consider your Paladins @350 pts. enough to make them quite dangerous and resilient. Leave the apothecary and B-Banner at home, you can spend those points elsewhere. Keep your dedicated transports simple, 80 pts for each is just nuts. Give them Psybolt ammo, and that's it. And your HQs are too expensive. Keep them simple and don't add anything else besides grenades and perhaps Master-crafting their weapons. Consider each @180 -190 pts. tops.

Brother Souba is right too, you need more units. Take one 10 man Strike squad and 1 5-man Strike squad. With that and all the point trimming, you'll still have about 200 pts. to invest in anything you like. I'd recommend either a Purg squad+transport or a Interceptor squad. If you feel more aggressive, try including one NDK, or even a SR. You can also go for one Termie squad for full troops spamming. Hope this helps! Very Happy

At 1500 points you could potentially double your body count and have heavy support choices for anti-vehicle.

Also, consider (1) HQ rather than two. This will free up some points to invest in another sqaud.

Thank s for all the ideas
i was in a hurry and was unable to type everything up

here is all the army info, it has been tweeked slightly

HEAVY SUPPORT
nemesis dreadknight, heavy incinerator

In the battle i used the assassin for some fun and used quicksilver in my paladins assults to increase initiative to ten

i use the grand stratagy to give my paladins the scout rule so that they could outflank
my razorbacks and strike squads are just a destration to the enemy
