One really quick question guys, what is the "right" number of pathfinders for a squad? Last time I used them I maxed the squad size out, but I always found myself sitting on one or two unused Marker Lights. I was thinking six Pathfinders, thoughts?

Depends how many squads you have and the points level. The more firepower you have, the more markerlights you're going to need.

i myself use two squads of six. they usually work out very well but after my opponent realises how good they are they usually all die the next turn :/

6 has also worked out very well for me as well, enough to do enough hits to make them worthwhile but not to big as to be a major threat.

for 1000-1500 I usually go 4, but 1500-2000 I usually go 8.
