As the title says this is just an idea, but i think it could be fun.

Combined Arms Detachment

HQ

2 Archons w/
2 Blasters
2 Shadowfields
=230

Troops

5 Warriors
1 Venom w/ 2. Spc
=105

5 Warriors
1 Venom w/ 2. Spc
=105

Fast Attack
3 Reavers w/
1 Cluster caltrops
=63

1 Raider
=55

Purge Coterie Formation

1 Archon w/
1 Blaster
1 Shadowfield
1 WWP
=150

20 Trueborn w/
1 Dracon
1 Blast Pistol
4 Blasters
2 Dark lances
=345

3 Reavers w/
1 Cluster caltrops
=63

1 Raider
1 Dark Lance
=60

Grotesquerie Formation

Haemonculus
1 Sump
1 Scissorhand
=90

3 Grotesques
1 Abberation
1 Scissorhand
=125

3 Grotesques
=105

=1496


Everything on foot with a Dark light weapon goes in one, very expensive unit
(it is legal to put 3 Archons in one unit right? Still seems strange.), and comes via WWP.
It's like the opposite of MSU.
But could be tough with the 3 Archons' 2+ Invulnerable saves, Trueborn meatshield and pack a punch with 10 Dark light shots and Marked for Death Preferred Enemy.

The Grotesquerie goes in the Raiders.

What do you think?
Anything i could improve?

Edit: Had some numbers wrong.

Hi there,

Couple of quick thoughts, can you have 3 HQ in a single CAD? I think it's only 2?

Both Grot squads need a Raider imo, assuming the one from the PC is going to them?

Assuming I'm right & you have 1 too many Archons, I'd + Raider, + Abber with the points.

Need to check our Codex.........

Thanks, you are correct, dropped the illegal one, added Dracon w/ Blast Pistol, a second Raider and a Dark lance for the Purge Coterie Raider.

Personally I'd cut the 20 trueborn into 10 each, the one in the coterie take a dedicated transport, while the other (If possible) take the raider from the coterie as their detachment, thus giving them the benefit of the coterie rules as well (I believe). This allows you to be more mobile, and make it so your less vulnerable to blasts.

Granted this is supposed to be a deathstar.

The Purge Coterie Raider doesn't confer Marked of Death to it's passengers if i remember correctly.
Also, yes i want it to stay a Death Star, but thanks for pointing out the dangers of Blasts!

I could go double Purge Coterie though, having 2 Raiders, each filled with 2 Blastarchons +8 Trueborn with max Dark light. Will think about that.

I see what you are trying to do here, but I will second what others have said. 20 man blob of warriors just wont hold up to any real return fire. Trueborn special weapons are not tied into how many people are in the squad, so just take 10 (or 8 guys if you need room for your archons) and throw them into a raider. Its cheaper, more durable, and has the benefit of your NS for jinking and the extra lance on the raider (that can target another unit).

My $0.02

Okay, will use troop(s) of 7-8 with Archons in Raider w/ NS didn't think about full BS for jinking passengers. Will revise list later.
