Hi All:

I made this and was wondering if it was too over the top.

Head Quarters
Haemonculus

Elites
3 Kabalite Trueborn with 3 Blasters in Raider with Dark Lance 141
3 Kabalite Trueborn with 3 Blasters in Raider with Dark Lance 141
3 Kabalite Trueborn with 3 Blasters in Raider with Dark Lance 141

Troops
5 Kabalite Warriors with Blaster in Venom with Dual Splinter Cannons 125
5 Kabalite Warriors with Blaster in Venom with Dual Splinter Cannons 125
5 Kabalite Warriors with Blaster in Venom with Dual Splinter Cannons 125
5 Kabalite Warriors with Blaster in Venom with Dual Splinter Cannons 125
5 Kabalite Warriors with Blaster in Raider with Dark Lance 120
3 Wracks in Raider with Dark Lance 90

Heavy Support
x3 Ravagers 315

Total: 1498

Summary
Dark Lances: 14
Blasters: 14
Splinter Cannons: 8
Different Lance Targets: 16
Kill Points: 22

I know that it is possible to get at least another 4 Dark Lances but I figured that the marginal return on another Dark Lance vis-a-vis another Splinter Cannon was just not great enough. As is, this list should be able to put out withering long range anti-tank fire with respectable, if not jaw dropping anti-infantry shooting. I think what sets this list apart from a traditional Venom spam style list is the emphasis on long range AT--having another 5 Dark Lances goes a long way, at least in theory.


What are your thoughts?

I would suggest switching the trueborn rides with the warriors or just going all venoms which is likely the stronger option here.

Your Trueborn have a blaster range of 18" riding with a dark lance with a range of 36" so I'm with Brom here on swapping them into a Venom. If you can find the points you could give one of the Trueborn squads one or even two Dark Lances and be a really annoying sniper squad lurking at the back.

It is a little spammy *ahem* but that is down to personal taste.

See how you go with it, having that many guns is alot of fun although it does get stale quickly I used to run 8 venoms all the time.
The haeme is an easy warlord point for your opponents once you start getting to this size game the other guys will have better warlords, I only take a haeme as my single warlord below 1000pts.
You could drop the wracks and haeme and have a shooty archon, give him a blaster, huskblade, soul trap, and a shadow field.
That's 150 points.
Will give you some needed CC bite if the unit gets charged and he will be deadly with his blaster.
You could always give him two blast pistols as he will be able shoot both, but they are only 6" range.

Agree and i would swap 1 true born unit for SC for dedicated anti infantry ( get a night shield so you can shoot at 36" and even if he goes forward ) . You have enough anti vehicle already.

With the Darklight Curse, you can never have enough AT...

Personally I would drop the blasters and switch them to Lanceborn (3x Trueborn w/ 2 Dark Lances) and sit them back in cover. This provides you with some more long range AT, and saves you 20pts in the process per squad. You can use that to switch some of the raiders over to venoms while still keeping the same number of long range AT shots, while adding a ton more AI.
