My own thoughts: AV14 will give me fits. Sheer volume of firepower downrange should pretty well take care of everything else, especially considering how much stuff I have that can fire indirect.

I'm not sure about the second unit of Ratlings, or Vox in general. Getting rid of either of them would get me another Sentinel.

1. Unless you plan on counter attack or using Plasma Guns, you don't really need a Medic in your Company Command Squad. If you are taking a heavy weapon team, take something better than a Missile Launcher to take advantage of their BS4.

2. I recommend taking Ratlings in 10-man squads, instead of two 5-man squads.

3. 1st Platoon, move those Plasma Guns to your Command Squad. For the same price, they become BS4 and you get the Feel No Pain from the Medic for overheats.

4. I recommend you put a Meltagun in every Infantry Squad. They are much more versatile than other special weapons and become even more effective with Bring the Big One Down!

5. Do you have any heavy weapons in your Heavy Weapons squads?

6. I'm not a big fan of Missile Launchers. Both Lascannons and Autocannons are better.

7. Go for 3 Meltas in your Special Weapons Squads.

8. Combine your Sentinels into a single squadron. It will cut down on the kill points you are giving up.

I like Voxes and use them a bunch in my IG army, but I'm not a huge fan of Ratlings (Jwolf swears by them though). It's odd not seeing some armor in a 2000pt IG list -- the army is really screaming for a Demolisher or two.

Best of luck!
