Ok so here goes with my first retribution list...
MHSF 10 man with UA
MHSF 10 man with free UA
so how will this do ya think?
p.s. do my shields regenerate every turn on the jacks as long as I have my generator? or can my arcanist "heal" my jacks force field?

"Shields" only regenerate when you spend focus points during their activation. It's on page 55 of the Forces of Warmachine: Retribution of Scyrah book. Also, from what I can read on the Arcantrik Fields, it looks like an Arcanist cannot repair the force field grid. The relevant part:
"Myrmidons have two damage tracks: a set of boxes representing their force fields and another representing their damage grids."
Since the two tracks are considered to be seperate, and the Arcanist's repair only mentions removing from their damage grid (IE, "[...] remove d6 points from the warjacks damage grid.") I strongly think and Arcanist cannot heal a force field damage track.
He still rocks though (the Arcanist) and keep in mind that Phoenix's Force Field automatically regenerates as long as the generator system is up.
As for the list, it seems very situational. With only a single Heavy Warjack, and no other melee to speak of except for a few MHAs, a strong and fast melee force (Cryx, or the mirror) would probably ruin your day. Additionally, a Hordes army will probably wipe the floor with you without much trouble. Without looking at points, I'd try to minimize the units of MHSF, perhaps remove a solo or two (my vote is one of the Ghost Snipers or possibly Narn) and try to fit a Phoenix in there. It will help against masses of infantry with it's AoEs and assorted fire, and can provide another beatstick to throw against warbeasts.

well admitedly, I don't know alot about RoS, just got the book last night and read it till 6 AM, lol, was like 8 hours of straight reading, great book, but I am unsure on how this list would play, my main point is, what does a Pheonix bring to the table, a hydra, and the other heavy jack, can't remember name atm. Which ones of these jacks fits best with this kind of list and why?
