shuriken and brightlance platforms are infantry

I think that makes them way too overpowered - long range, tons of hit points apiece, low cap cost, and the fact that they are heavy infantry means that only plasma rifles are good against them, which means that Space Marines have to run right at them to destroy them.

Sorry, my mistake. I guess i spaced out that platforms weren't. And i mean that all those vehicles can't be taken over regularly, but yes if you have a mod for that then of course you can.

It might be worth making a mod just to see a baneblade get possessed and completely waste an IG army on its own

If you ook above, there are mods that allow that. For example, the Lights of the Warp mod.

Yeah...I need to try that sometime. But for some reason I've never played LOTW with Necrons before. Another first, then.

Actually there are far more AI weapons than AV. And this argument was valid in vanilla dow

Shrunkins have 650 health. Brightlances dont do damage. Be less stupid.

Brightlances do damage. Lots and lots of damage. But only to vehicles. And that's where it is annoying, because in original dawn of war, there was no vehicle that actually was effective against heavy infantry. Oh, sure, the predator, and land raider took them out quite quickly, but there was still a horrendous amount of damage the platform had the ability to deal. 1 cap platform, half-destroying a 3 cap predator? The only consolation was that the platforms were horrendously slow, and they had to travel round in groups, in case they met different unit types. But apart from that...
