I don’t have any ideas on how to fix the overpricing on Inf coys. Perhaps that is something for Steel Legion as well? But I think mechanizing the kasrkin might be one step on the way.
And adding whiteshields to form ”need a shovel to move formations” could be another. Although I’d rather see pure whiteshield coys instead. Commander + 24 units, no other upgrades than fire support?

About list structure, what about moving kasrkin to a third category (as chaos lists) with a 1:1 ratio to hq/Inf/whiteshield coys?

I don’t see a lot of action for the Stormlords, but my experience with them indicates that 150 is VERY aggressively costed. There’s an absolutely withering amount of AP on them - an average of 5.17 hits on nine dice. 175 would be better, IMO. Otherwise, I agree with pretty much all the changes I’ve seen.

Also a little surprised that so few Stormswords are in attendence - those are really good in both Cadians and Minervans. I suppose model availability is part of it.

I agree and would like to do this but am mindful it could have a massive impact on people’s collections....

If put to a vote, which I think something as fundamental as this probably should be, I don’t think it’d win.

Stormswords, together with Shadowswords, are the only SHTs I use. 45 cm range + disrupt on that gun is amazing both for AP and AT roles. Almost always one in my Cadian list for support.
