Greetingsdark kin,

So I'm preparing for a mini tournament in a week and would like to consult following list with Commorragh community:

Succubus, Archite Glaive, Armour of Misery
4x5 Warriors in Venoms with Splinter Cannons
4 Reavers, Cluster Caltrop
Scourges with Haywire,
Razorwing Jetfighter, Sp. cannon, Nightshields, Dark Lances, Monoscythe
Ravager w/ 3xDark Lances

Grotesquerie
Haemoncolus , Vexator mask, Sindriq sump, Mindphase gauntlet, Hexrifle
2x3Grotesques in a Raiders with Night shields

I playtested it vs Daemons and although he was popping my transports like baloons with every Vector strike and psychic power it worked pretty well.

Possible opponents: Blood Angels, Genestealer cults, Tyranids, Daemons, Chaos space marines, Deathwatch

I would drop the hexrifle, mask and gauntlet, either the s. cannon or the lances and bump the reavers to 6 with 2 caltrops.
(Not sure about the point total)

Looks good dude. SC on the razorwing will do nothing if you are using the lances on a tank.

I assume there are 4 haywire on the scourges?

Splinter cannon is good for flying MC though, if you have trouble with those

Well honestly, I will keep the build since the main idea is there: Grotesquerie+Realspace raiders combo of fast capping and hard hitting units.

I would love to push for 6 Reavers, but the issue is that I own only 4 Smile

I had a same thinking regarding SC on Razorwing, because they are great for MC hunting.

Oh, thats a RSR rather than a CAD? You really want the ObSec on your 4 warrior venoms, and you are not using the 6 FA slots, so switch to a CAD please. You will be glad you did when you are hunting for objectives late game Wink

Just a short update from Saturday:

I played 2 opponents: Blood Angels/Deathwatch and Genesteler Cult/Tyranids

First game BA/DW:
He fielded Ancients formation with 2 Dreads, CAD with 2 tacticals and Mephiston with Termies in a Stormraven and Aquila kill team with Libby
We played Spoils of War.
I gave him initiative since I wanted to have drop pod(s) on table before capping. Strange first turn, no single model was removed. Game went as planned on my behalf, except lousy failed charge by Succubus and Grotesques. MVP were Scourges that wacked 2 dreads before being chased of the table by opponents shooting. Final result 15:2.

Second game: GSC/Nids

He brought: Nid CAD with Hive Tyrant, 2x2 Zoanthropes (the psychic Lance ones? i don't know) and Mines as troops, formation of 20 Genestealers and Patriarch, Formations Subterranean Uprising of GSC, and CAD of GSC with Magus. He had a lot of Lasers and Lances in any case.
I took the initiative. He nevertheless infiltrated in advance hoping to seize. First turn I focused on those forward units, avoiding 20 genestealer blob. This really paid off since they were useless 500 points entire game. Grotesques really struggled with Acolytes. Those rending hits and ton of attacks are nasty. Also Succubus really needed to hit with 2 hand mode on Archite to do something.

Anyways, lack of mobility and suffering in later turns helped me a lot. At the end he called it by T3 with 7:2 for me.

Needless to say that was enough to win the tournament Smile

Thanks for help with list. My future goal is expanding to 6 bikers and optimizing a bit anti-armour (it was overkill as some of you suggested already).
