I sparred with my usual opponent this Sunday, Dark Angels gunline castling with Azrael and a few other force multipliers and bubbles like a Deredeo, Darkshroud, Lieutenant (re-roll 1s to wound), Ancient (shoot again on a 4+ if you die).
I wound up running both the Air Wing and Battalion as Black Heart, dropping the Razorwings' Dark Lances down to Disintegrators, switching the Voidravens' Scythes to Void Lances, and running the Overlord with a Blaster, and the list purred pretty well and was surprisingly resilient, even to the amount of heavy guns the Astartes were packing (this isn't a total surprise to me...we are not a good matchup for Astartes I find).
I did not roll many FnPs but where 6s failed me, Archon re-roll auras did me proud. The fliers obviously won't frequently be within the bubble but syncing up Kabals for the aura re-rolls just overall helped everything.
I will be dropping the Kabalite Dark Lance and probably the Overlord's Blaster too...having a Blaster is great but I've played enough games with a Writ of the Living Muse Warlord to know that she is typically only going to be firing that Blaster once the noose has really tightened around my opponent's neck.
There are two options I'm interested in:
1. Replacing the Succubus, Dark Lance and Blaster with Lelith Hesperax and 2 more Kabalites
2. Replacing 5 Scourges, Dark Lance and Blaster with 6 Reavers w/2 Grav Talons and 1 more Kabalite
I think Lelith is the way to go, though I'd definitely like to try the Red Grief Reavers at some point.
Lord Asvaldir I don't really know if I have a stronger option available for 55ish points besides 1 Succubus and 1 CP, but I'm really all ears, I'm sort of scratching my head here for an alternative and I'm probably overlooking something. Got any recommendations?
