    Ok if you want cheap scoring falcon 5 dire advengers are the cheapest way
    your weapon load out on your dragon falcon is a little odd either you hang back and bright lance the AV 14 or do you rush forward to jump out your dragons. either way you end up with points not doing any thing.
    I'd go scatter lasers,
    Leave the lance on the scoring falcon then you give your opponent the tricky choice of which falc to shoot.
    What is your plan for yariel? remember his template is great but he needs to be away from your guys when he uses it. are you going for a all reserve strat

    random double post there dude!

    I was going to use the fire dragons as a back up close-range hard hitter. They are mainly there to shoot infantry, not tanks. But i see your point. what do i do with the extra 20/25 points gettin rid of two lances gives me.

    The idea for yriel was to keep him with the banshees. his bale eye isnt the best thing i was intending to use him for, but, i suppose if he wants to suicide into a unit he can.

    I probably wont be using reserves, he's just good to help deny opponents.

    as with the DA in the falc. I was gonna possibly (depending on opponent) disembark the 5 rangers and use them as a small fire team with the falcon at the back giving them a double use. 5 DA are pretty much useless to most things.
    CURSES!!!
