I'm looking to build up a competitive list that still has some flavour and not just spam warriors in venoms and raiders. So i guess you could say its semi-competitive. I played a lot of DE back in 3rd edition but took a break from gaming for a few years and completely skipped over the 5th ed codex and came back to 40k with this new codex. Much has changed. So while i'm up for bringing in some of the newer models to my force, part of this list is built around what I ran back then.

CC most welcome! I'm glad to have found this community of DE where I can re-learn the army after the changes made since the old old codex haha.

Looks fine to me on a semi-competitive bent.

Here's an idea to bring it up to a more competitive 1850 point list. I'm wondering if it will have enough objective secure/troops though. Thoughts?

I would note that for the price of the 2 Trueborn units - you could field

2x 5 Warriors in Raider w. Blaster
1x 5 Scourges w. 4 Haywire

So you sack 8 Blasters and 2 Lances
And gain 2 Blastes, 4 Haywires, and 2 Lances and an additional 2x ObjSec. and also add to your overall MSU concept and will find that the Haywire Blasters are often a better tool for dealing with certain problems (Imperial Knights/other superheavies and also Dreads of all sorts are immediate optimal targets for death).

When I ran DE I never played MSU. Each unit needed a good amount of firepower (or in those days good assault) abilities. I'm not against the idea, Venoms for example I consider MSU, they're a unit I'm getting used to but I get the idea because of the firepower from the venoms.

I'm curious as to how you play 5 man squads in Raiders. Is it just a cheap way to get more DL (like the 7th ed version of "sniper" squads from back in the day)? I'm wondering if I could replace a Ravager with a Scourge squad instead, this way I lose 3 lances but gain the haywire blasters and keep the firepower from the trueborn plus score another obj sec unit.

I'll playtest the MSU raider squads though. Tips?
