I'm not a big fan of blasterborn, but I had this idea for a list. Mabe in large groups thay could do well. What do you guys think.

CAD#1
Lhameans in venom / cannons
3x 5 trueborn w/ 4 blasters in venom w/ cannons
2x5 warriors in venom w/ canbons

CAD#2
Lhameans in venom / cannons
3x 5 trueborn w/ 4 blasters in venom w/ cannons
2x5 warriors in venom w/ canbons

The total points come out to 1650 .

I don't like blasterborn. For the same price, you could do this list:

CAD#1
Lhamean in venom / cannons 75
3x venom w/ cannons 195
2x5 warriors in venom w/ cannons 210
3x Ravagers with triple lances 375

CAD#2
Lhamean in venom / cannons 75
2x venom w/ cannons 130
2x5 warriors in venom w/ cannons 210
3x Ravagers with triple lances 375
Total: 1645

This has basically all the firepower of the other list with more surviveability. It has 1 less venom, but replaces each blasterborn squad with a ravager that doesn't die en masse every time a venom blows up.

Blasterborn were good in a time when we were far more limited on the number of detachments we could run(like when we only had ONE). Now that we can field multiple detachments in almost every tournament format, ravagers are simply a far better option in nearly every case. The only time I'd suggest blasterborn is maybe when you're looking to add some more AT but all of your heavy support slots are full and you've only got about 115 spare points, so an additional detachment isn't an option. And even then, I'd only suggest doing it if you had already planned to spend points on a fast attack venom that you could re-purpose to being a dedicated transport. Otherwise, scourges would probably be a better option.

Basically, blasterborn are EXTREMELY niche. It's very difficult to construct a situation where another unit wouldn't do their job better.

So you both are trying to max out a single slot, requiring two CADs. What if you combined the two into a single cad, 3 blasterborn and 3 ravagers. This leaves you enough points for some FA if you so choose

next game try having an archon with blaster/blast pistol and portal, deep strike a 5man trueborn in a DL raider with 4 blasters and a blast pistol behind some poor metal bawx. its costs more than you want to know but its forging the narrative hard lol!
