When using tge duke, why not run a group of trueborn with shardcarbines in a raider with night shields?
Warriors with splinter rifles counts easily as that. Or just 9 warriors and add splinter racks to the raider?

Maybe take 2 dark lances in the trueborn squad and not so many blasters?
Put themm in cover and hopefor tge best?

I think shock prows are insanely cool, but a bit hard to really say worth it.

Those are the thoughts coming to mind at once at least.

It doesn't make sense to put the Duke in a squad of blaster wielding trueborn because you completely lose out on his 3+ poison.
If you put him in a riader with shard carbine board as was suggested it will make an extremely deadly combo (just prepare to have a lot coming at it)
I highly recomend nightshield on your vehicles, that -6'' can save your life (not to mention frustrate your opponent)
If you want to put Dark Lances on your Blasterborn don't put them in a vehicle , put them somewhere and camp. I say this because the second that vehicle moves (which you want it to to get that jink save) DL's are firing as snap shots.

I like to run squads of 10 warriors + Splinter Cannon (and sometime sybarite) in a raider with splinter racks and nightshields. I find it usually works really well, it puts out a lot of hits and is great for taking out flying mostrous creatures (and is fun to watch people to assault)

-Drop all sybarites
-Add nightshields or/and flickerfields to raiders
-Move the DL trueborn to 9man warriors, make him either DL warrior or splintercannon
-Drop splinter cannons on scourges, either give them anything but DLs, or skip the special weapons. 5x3 splinter shots are real nice already, extra 2 shots from 2 splinter cannon won't help. Unless your're otherwise mobilve scourges stands still and shoot the heavy profile. But then again, your Trueborns woulda been more fitting for that.

And here it comes, I hope Sky Serpent aint watching this thread:
-Drop the Duke, make the model an Archon. Then you can:
--Put Archon with blasterborn, give him a blaster and shadowfield + other stuff to fill out points. He will now have the same range and type of weapon like the rest of blasterborn, any vehicle should die if this squad shoots em!
--Remove one wych from your wychsquad, freeing up a special weapon and one wych total of points, put your archon there. And equip him mad expensive, huskblade, Combat drugs, shadowfield, phantasm nade launcher + other stuff for filling points

Pointwise, I believe you can put it close to 1000 points, without exceeding if you do the changes above. Most of the suggested drops should give you enough points to add the stuff I mentioned. If for some reason my memory on the points fails and the math is incorrect, which brings you to the point where there is too much points, start losing shock prows, hydra gaunts, torment launchers and other vehicle upgrades. Or drop the splinter cannons on scourges, not really worth it there.

I think that at noncompetetive 1k points, 3 Dark lances from your raiders, +1 DL from a squad should be enough. If you need more anti tank, consider proxing your scourges with more anti tank, preferably anything but DLs.

Yeah, im thinking the 2 dark lances will make them better for vehicle sniping. and the duke is going to be with the 9 warriors with rifles and splinter racks, im not sure if i put that in there
and shock prows may not be practical but they are cool, so they stay
thanks
