This was done quickly and roughly but I can shave a few points off here and there to make things a bit closer to 2k, but what do you all think?

Since you won't get the benefit on the Riptide Wing from the Contingent, I'd probably drop it, and combine your Riptides and Broadsides into one or more Firebase Support Cadres, which WILL get the Contingent benefit.

Have you seen the new formation for 3 riptides in Mont'ka? ....

Yeah, I've seen it. But it's Dawn Blade, not Hunter Contingent, so you won't get the Buffmander benefits, you won't get the +1 BS for firing 3 units, etc etc.

I will admit it's a good formation, but you've already added so many Broadsides to your list, and you're obviously min/max'ing by using the Drone Squadron as your auxillary, I'd just re-distribute the models. Add a fourth Broadside, drop the drones, run 2 Firebase Support Cadres. You lose the Hailfire, but gain access to constant Tank Hunter, Monster Hunter, and +1 BS (since it's always 3 units firing) without needing to all target together.
