Hey guys n gals. Been mulling over the new codex and rules and struggling tbh to put together a list that I am happy with. I finally came up with this and would appreciate your thoughts on if it works or could I add/change anything to suit. I generally go for an all rounder list that can handle most armies (lol) and that was what I am aiming for with this list. Lots of splinter weaponry that reroll with splinter wracks, blasters, heat lances, haywire ect for anti tank and grots with archon for close combat (+ readers when needed). I am not the most competitive player but like to give my opponent (and myself) a fun and challenging game. List below and thanks in advance for your replies Smile (I will be slow in responding as I am in hol with limited internet, but will try as soon as I can)

1850pts (a few spare)
Archon, shadow field, blaster, agoniser

Grots x4
Raider with DL

X10 kabalite warriors, blaster, splinter cannon
Raider, DL, splinter racks
X10 kabalite warriors, blaster, splinter cannon
Raider, DL, splinter wracks
X5 kabalite warriors, blaster
Venom, splinter cannon
X5 kabalite warriors, blaster
Venom, splinter cannon

X9 reavers, x3 caltrops, x3 heat lances. Arena champion
X5 scourges, x4 haywire blasters

Ravager x3 DL
Ravager x3 DL

I would drop the blaster on the archon for an animus vitae, his unts going to be a tough cookie anyway but if you can get that +1 to PfP they are going to start steamrolling! Will also help out the Reavera and scourges should stuff start shooting at them!

How many more points do you have to play with? You could always stick some liquifiers in with the grots to get some delicious templates in there?

yeah depending on where he's going I'd look to drop either the agoniser or blaster form the archon.

You also don't have any anti-air capability, try and fit in a razorwing maybe? I'd probably look to drop the warrior squad splinter cannons, 3 reavers and blaster then see how many points you still need.

If you're going for combat, Succubus with Glaive is a better option than Archon with agoniser, as she can still pick apart those 2+ armour units whilst the grots take hits for her.

Yes great input guys cheers. I have dropped 3 reavers, changed the shadow filed in the archon to a clone field (as it is super expensive) and got rid of his agoniser. I will check out the rules for the animus thingy Grub and then will poss add it in.
The reason I went for a blaster on the archon was to get that cheeky transport kill when the raider drops in with wwp. I will also look into the succubus as that is a good point Burning eye.
Also dropped splinter cannons from the two warrior units, and changed the DL to dissies on their two raiders.
I have added a court of the archon with 8 slyths an one medusae and lhamaean in a raider with splinter wracks and dissies. Added these mainly for the Dakka and also working on a new modelling project for them, which I am really excited about. This leaves me enough points for a razor wing with 2 DL and puts me at 1851.
Any better or do you think it still needs a few bits and bobs?

When you say you are excited about a project you are doing, I'm excited! The animus is basically a strength 4 ap 2 grenade that if you get a kill with it, boosts the PfP turn by one. A bit risky for 20 points but can really help! Is the Archon going with the Grots then? If so It might be better to kit him out for assault! Or do whatever you fancy because it sounds fun anyway!

Not being too assault themed I guess the animus might be less useful (I personally have found it great when it works but I'm still clinging on to the remnants of the assault phase since 6th edition!)

If the Archon is going to party up with the Grots which looks like what you are intending to do, then it may well be worth ditching the blaster and just going for straight up agoniser and clone field. That way you will find he will perform better alongside the grots to make a nice little hard hitting unit!
