Blatantly.  I don't play in Organised tournaments, so pretty much none of the above applies.  I play competitively in my local area.

Also, I do play against tournament players and with my lists, only 1 game in 8th ed, out of roughly 40 has actually gone down to scoring points. Every other game has been won by tabling or conceding. I have won all bar 2, I might add.

If what you're doing is going well for you then that's great, but learning to play the objective game really will make you a better player. At a certain point "murder everything" stops consistently working as a strategy.

Problem is then you're playing a different game then what you are asking about.
Highly competitive play, but not using the tournament structures used by others.

Your playing as different of a game as if you'd said you're doing a progressive narrative campaign. Only you didn't say that was the case.

Tabling is a lot less common in tournaments (the tournament players are playing differently against you than they would in a tournament).

If you're going non-tournament play, non-open play deck games. And non-chapter approved mission games, or you can reasonably expect you want see lists that are going to gave 80+ guardsman or similar. Sure your list should be fine, if somewhat incisistant.

Might want to start with info like that before asking questions though.

I wasn't actually after list criticism (although I am always open to it) I was asking about the benefit of paying 300pts for 5CP.  Change the lists in your head if you like.  The original question still stands.

Just an FYI, I will be trying Kabalite spam and dropping the Trueborn completely for my next game, so don't feel like you haven't helped me out in some way ... just not the way I was asking about Very Happy

The problem is that you're setting up a false dichotomy by asking "Should I pay 300 pts for 5 CP, or spend it instead on more damage?"

That 300 points isn't just buying 5 Command Points. It's buying more bodies. It's buying units that are actually threats to certain targets (quite a lot of targets as well, if you equip them with a Blaster and PGL).

If the decision was between 5 command points or more units, then it'd be tricky. But that's not the decision.

We can't really answer that question without context. It's about the same as me asking
"Would you add nutmeg?"
A) definitely, cinnamon isn't enough. B) depends on the recipe c) no I'd use something else.
