+Archite glaive
+Haywire grenades
=100

Troops:

5 Kabalites
+Venom w/2.SpC
=105

5 Scourges
+4 Haywire blasters
=120

Heavy Support:

1 Ravager w/3 Dark lances
=125

Formation Grotesquerie:

Haemonculus
+ Syndriqs sump
=80

3 Grotesques
+Aberration
+Scissorhand
+Raider
=185 w/DL

3 Grotesques
+Aberration
+Scissorhand
=125

Formation Purge Coterie:

Archon
+Venom w/2.SpC
=125

5 Trueborn
+4 Blasters
+Venom w/2.SpC
=180

9 Reavers
+3 Cluster Caltrops
=189

Raider w/DL(goes with Grotesquerie)

What do you think?

Looks pretty standard, should work fine. Usually people (myself included) like to put the Armour of Mysery (AoM) on the Succi joining the Grots, so you have a nice -3 LD bubble when you charge. Anything without Fearless or ATSKNF will get wipped out.

Okay, i cut one Aberration w/ Scissorhand and the Dark lances on both Raiders, freeing 30 points for AoM for the Succubus and Night shield for her Grotesquerie Raider, here the revised list:

5 Kabalites
+Venom w/2.SpC
=105

5 Kabalites
+Venom w/2.SpC
=105

FA:

5 Scourges
+4 Haywire blasters
=120

3 Reavers
+1 Cluster Caltrops
=63

3 Reavers
+1 Cluster Caltrops
=63

Heavy Support:

1 Ravager w/3 Dark lances
=125

Formation Grotesquerie:

Haemonculus
+ Syndriqs sump
=80

3 Grotesques
+Aberration
+Scissorhand
+Raider w/NS
=195

3 Grotesques
=105

Formation Purge Coterie:

Archon
+Venom w/2.SpC
=125

5 Trueborn
+4 Blasters
+Venom w/2.SpC

I use basically the same list, but with a DA over the Purge Corterie. Works fine, so long as you are not against flyers/ Superheavies.

This is basically the best we can do at this point

I would be tempted to break up the reaver squad into 3 small units since you have space in the CAD. It's nice to have preferred enemy affecting more models but you'll probably want to put it on whatever the trueborn are targeting. Having them broken up really adds to their versatility and survivability. If you want you can always mob them up to dogpile a big threat.

Survivability and versatility sounds good, edited the list.

So, i tested the List out in a friendly game against a 30000 Death Guard Army.

It went quite well, (a draw) even though i made rather huge mistakes like feeding two of my reaver squads to his Terminators and half my Grotesquerie including Aberration + Warlord Succubus to his Forgeworld Leviathan Dreadnought turn 2 in a clumsy Alpha Strike attempt Rolling Eyes

That allowed my Ravager, Blasterborn and HWB Scourges to perform surprisingly well though.

I think it could be better to go second and save the units until they get real Feel No Pain at least and maybe other nice Powers from Pain, all the while harassing everything with 48 poison shots at 36".

I also need to learn what attacks what:
The Grotesques+Succubus couldn't even hurt the Leviathan, and it more or less vaporized them Shocked while their AP2 would have helped against the Terminators.

Oops, just realized i played Marked for Death wrongly, giving all formation units preferred enemy vs anything without the Archon pointing anywhere, totally forgot that part. Embarassed
I think an apology to the Death Guard player is due...
