This list is an update of my Index strategy of a ‘hammer and anvil’ or encirclement list deploying Mandrakes and Scourges from the skies/warp for a Beta strike while a line of skimmers hammers the enemy and a few choice assault units use Stratagems, cover and speed to get good matchups on a turn 2/3 charge
In this version the Prophets detachment feels like kind of a stub, although 5 wracks as cheap Objective holders ain’t bad, plus it unlocks the Raiding Force CP, the extra Warlord traits and a chance to defray the CP cost of the Alliance and the Prizes; seems pretty solid. As-is the Haemo is basically a Vexator caddy to mix into the Incubi Raider (*insert insane babbling about T'au Overwatch here*). The Obsidian Rose Archon rides in his own Raider, accompanied by the Wracks. He is the 'final reserve' for end-game bullying around objectives
At this point my main question for discussion is whether or not to drop a little shooting in order to add in 3-4 Grotesques in the third Raider so that Each Patrol HQ has their own unique ‘bodyguard’. At the moment with only 2 ‘Assault Raiders’ I could lack redundancy - if one goes down then my mid-table assault could be stymied pretty easily. My hope is that between Burning Jets and Enhanced Aethersails I can get them up the board in decent shape, but I have a feeling that a third beat stick up front could be a better investment than the Razorwing, for instance? Obviously it’s hard to ignore T6 4++ Grotesques… Discuss.


The Good Doctor.
