That means having to use KFF meks instead. Which, in hindsight, is probably going to work out better because adding elite slots will need to add HQ slots as well.
The difference between a 5++ and 4++ is pretty significant, so I'm not sure how much it will really help though.
You can take 2 KFF meks for the price of a VSG and have points left over, and probably end up with better coverage and more deployment options.
So I have to apologize to my opponents this weekend. Luckily it was a fun event and not a competitive tournament.
But back to the gun line. With the reduction of the invul save, it's going to be imperative to go first. Not sure how I will accomplish this, so time to tweak the list.
