I assume your prince is going with the Malevolent band? Is the Baron also going there? What are you going to do with your 1 psychic mastery level on the prince?

I was thinking of rolling biomancy or something of the sorts to buff him up and yes he is joining the Malevolents. i was planning on throwing the baron with the blasterband. what do you think?

I think you should just throw the baron in with the malevolents too, in order to give them an invuln save with that shimmershield. As for the psychic power, I don't think you can roll on biomancy. I think he's limited to telepathy, daemonology, and something else I don't recall off the top of my head.

Either way, I'd probably go for sanctic daemonology with him, hoping for hammerhand or sanctuary. Both of those would be really good for that unit. Hammerhand +2S for the unit, and sanctuary increases the invuln save they get from the shimmershield from 5+ to 4+. Of the other 4 powers in sanctic, 3 of them are witchfires which are always useful, and 1 is a teleport that uses the deep strike rules. Since you're using the skyburners rule, that means when you use the teleport, you'd only scatter 1d6, which basically means that every single power on sanctic is useful to this list.

Hope I've helped! Let us know what you decide to go with! Wink

Can't get telepathy. Divination and Telekinesis only.

Right, I was actually thinking of divination when I wrote telepathy. lol, Telepathy would be way better, and worth considering taking over sanctic.

So basically gotta choose divination, telekinesis, or daemonology. As I said, I'd still go with sanctic daemonology.

good to hear feedback, ill be sure to roll daemonology then Smile I must ask though, do you think the list will hold up to the current meta? anything in your opinion you might change?

I mean, it might. You don't have a deathstar or anything. You have a decent melee unit, and a fairly straightforward list that might be a LITTLE light on AT, but that's somewhat counterbalanced by the wraithknight.

If it was me, I'd probably consider taking the wraithcannons on the knight, but that's just a personal preference, and other than that, it seems like a list worth trying out, in any case.

If you're asking if I think it's competitive enough to justify buying every one of these models from scratch if you currently own none of them, with an eye on competitive play, my answer would be no. But competitive play is so streamlined that anything that isn't completely awesome has no place in such a list.

If talking about competitive play, I think corsairs have a place, but primarily as a cheaper, more versatile delivery method of a mask of secrets than harlies provide. There is some merit to their unit special abilities and such, but with the recent rulings on corsairs in the ITC taking away the overwatch use of reckless abandon and disallowing non-corsair units from benefitting from warp tunnel, I think the ITC did a good job of making them have fairly low desirability in their format.
